Subversive is born from the need for creation between Miguel Mateus and Miguel Branco, creating the embryo of the themes for an album. After recording the bulk of the songs, they invited David Pais to join in the creation of vocal lines and lyrics and after that Xinês joined in the percussive wing.
The result of this work, inspired by several philosophical strands and currents of thought, is given the name "Dissonance". The final result was then mixed and mastered by Daniel Cardoso (Ultrasound Studios), and the launch is scheduled for the summer of 2020. The live debut of this new project is already scheduled for the 7th of June, in the already celebrated Comendatio Music Fest, in Paço da Comenda (Tomar).

Portuguese Prog Metallers Blame Zeus unveil music video for "No"; new album "Seethe" out November 8th
Portuguese progressive metallers Blame Zeus have unveiled their new music video "No" in support of their third full length "Seethe" due out November 8, 2019 via Rockshots Records.
Music Video "No": https://youtu.be/iNeNKb5nV34
Apple Music: https://apple.co/2kQNKGq
With influences that range from blues to metal, Blame Zeus can be described as an intense and heavy rock, but also with intimate and nostalgic ballads. Their line up features Sandra Oliveira, Tiago Lascasas, Paulo Silva, Celso Oliveira, and Ricardo Silveira.
Since forming in 2010, the band's two previous releases "Identity' (2014) (Raising Legends Records) and "Theory of Perception" (2017) have garnered much praise in their home country along with securing opening slots with bands Lacuna Coil, Moonspell, Cradle of Filth, Cellar Darling, R.A.M.P. among many others established acts. In 2018, they were invited to perform at Vagos Metal Fest, one of Portugal's biggest heavy festivals.
The band adds:
"Our new upcoming album will still possess BZ's genome, but it will bring some fresh features you've never seen in our work. It will be heavier, darker, more progressive, and it will make the fans submerge in a turmoil of strong feelings. Fans will certainly feel our same old vibe in the songs, but recognize it has been upgraded, with a more modern sound. We worked freely, with no strings attached, using new elements, making everything sound rhythmically, harmonically and melodically intertwined. We have certainly not made things easier to ourselves, and had to evolve technically to be able to play and sing these new songs."
and vocalist Sandra Oliveira also adds:
"'Seethe' could very well be considered a conceptual album because the main theme of the songs is unexpressed anger, silent pain transformed into poetry. Its contradictory nature is the liberation of the soul, it's letting go of that lump on your throat when you have something to say. Each song speaks of a particular situation where the silence and the numbness become a vehicle for action and freedom or even utmost despair."
"Seethe" is available for pre-order here.
