Mindfeeder are a Portuguese Heavy Power Metal band influenced by the Power Metal from the 90’s and 00’s but with a 21st Century approach and a warmth southern feeling presence in their songs.
The Band was born in 2003 as Inertia, but then changed to Mindfeeder when they recorded their first demo “Rise from the flames” in the beginning of 2004.
The song “The Traveler of Minds” taken from “Rise from the Flames” gave the band a 7th place in the 2005 Heavy Metal Eurovision Contest voted by Internauts.
“The Traveler of Minds” it’s also the hymn to the Portuguese wrestling association that still nowadays plays whenever there’s a competition or a site highlight.
In June 2006, Mindfeeder released the EP “Mind Revolution”, produced by well-known Portuguese producer Nuno A. de Loureiro and mastered by Mika Jussila at Finland’s Finnvox Studios.
The track “Tear These Walls” taken from the EP would be selected to be on “Circulo de Fogo I Ataque” Metal compilation and remains as a crowd favorite.
The EP would be very much acclaimed by Portuguese and international reviewers and the band would tour extensively (50 gigs and Festivals) until 2008.
In the years 2008 and 2009 Mindfeeder are voted in the top 3 unsigned Portuguese Metal bands by the most famous Portuguese metal magazine LOUD!
In 2012 the band started the recording of the first album at Mindfeeder’s Soundfeeder Studios.
The Album was engineered and edited by Mindfeeder’s Keyboard player Ricardo Martins and mixed, Mastered and co-produced by Piet Sielck (Iron Savior) at Powerhouse studios in Hamburg.

Corria o mês de Outubro de 2012 quando se ouviu os primeiros acordes de heavy metal da banda. Já com algumas ideias definidas, ensaio após ensaio fomos limando as arestas, mas com o final do ano de 2012 , desmoronou-se o line up que tinha nascido uns meses antes , foi preciso voltar a estaca zero e recomeçar ,mas sempre com a mesma vontade de sempre.
O numero 20(13) acabaria por nos trazer sorte e com a inclusão de Nelson Carmo dos Mass Disorder ( guitarra solo) e recorrendo a um baterista de sessão para ocupar a bateria , a banda ficava completa ,com os elementos da 1º formação Andre Assunção (baixo) ,Hugo Fernandes ex.Shadowsphere (guitarra ritmo) e Flávio Lino (Voz) ,renascia a força do heavy metal .
