FALLACY

 

Fallacy formed in November 1994, with former members of Sacred Sin and the mythical Lakrau. The band consisted of João Alves vocals, João Paulo guitar, João André bass and Jorge Gonçalves drums.  With only a few months of existence Fallacy debut live at the I Metal Fair in Almada, together with Thormenthor. The acceptance was very good and the band was invited to join the list of bands that would perform at Quinzena da Juventude, in Almada, in March 1995, organized by the City Hall of that city. In that performance they played again with Thormenthor and also with Bizarra Locomotiva and
Silent Scream. In August 1995, Fallacy went into studio and recorded their debut album "Fallacy". It was at Boom Studios in Corroios and the songs were "Killer Race, "Godman", "Fifhty Hole" and "Blind in Grey". After the demo release, they gave a concert at Johnny Guitar bar. The band played live a few more times until the end of 1995, when vocalist João Alves left and was replaced by Ricardo Almeida. Already with the new line-up, Fallacy played at Instituto Superior Técnico in Lisbon and at the II Metal Fair in Almada, once again with Thormenthor and Extreme Unction. In April 1996 they play at the contest in Felgueiras, "Don't Stp le Metal". In 1997 they released a 4-track demo in CD-R and another demo in 2000, titled "Martirios".

LOVER GUN

 


Hard Rock/ Heavy Metal band from the North of the country, more precisely from Vagos. They began in 1988 when Carlos Silva drummer, and Carlos Santos guitarist, who were studying together, decided to form a group. Meanwhile they met Juan Manuel bass, who was studying guitar at the time. After they told him about the project, Juan started to dedicate himself to the bass.The band stopped for a while, when they started working enthusiastically again. In 1991 Luís Santos appeared and offered to be the vocalist. The band decided that Luís was the right one for Luner Gun and he was accepted. With time, they saw the need for another guitarist. (who was attending rehearsals at the time) José Saragoça, who adapted easily. Later, they decided to record some songs they had worked on so far. So in 1992, they went into studio and recorded their first demo entitled "Set Us Free". After the recording, guitarist Carlos Santos left the band for various reasons, leaving them with only four members. Loner Gun gave some concerts, and worked on new compositions to take to studio in 1993.

XUPA MISTO



The formation of the band goes back to 1990/91. From the Lisbon area, the first line up consisted of Bruno Manteigas vocals, Mofas guitar, Paulo  bass, Jorge guitar and Luis drums. At this point the band played a mix of hardcore, crossover. 1st recording was made in JAP studios in 1991, very roughly, direct capture, to promote the 1st concert and because they would be interviewed on the Horizonte FM radio and had no record. The first live performance was in the beginning of 1992, at the old cinema of Sacavém (Academia) organized by JAP studios with Tropa Morta e Corrosão Caótica. The 2nd in May was in Rossio, Lisbon, in the week of youth in 1992, The third in July, was at the Gare Bar in Barreiro with Carrossel Mágico, and they would play live again more two times, one of them in September at the Quinta de São José in Sacavém with Toxic Waste. 2º recording was captured in JAP studios again, in late 92, with a little better production, but also captured live, only the voice was recorded separately. (this was the end of the punk / hardcore era). At the beginning of '93, Mofas left definitively, due to musical differences, he did not identify himself with the band's musical orientation (more towards Metal), in the middle they still gave a concert with him on the guitar and only at the end of 93  that Nuno arrives to take the place of Bruno. A 3rd recording  was again in JAP studios in 94. 

This last demo was never officially released, because Nuno left a few months later and they decided to end the project and never played live with the band. Later would merge with Symbiosis.
