” Bem-vindos ao Futuro, o Passado foi Presente para todos ” ( Heavenwood ” The Juggler ” )
O início do meu caminho com os Heavenwood em 1992. Os NECROSIDE ( Pré – Disgorged ) estreavam-se ao vivo em Vila Nova de Gaia ( Canelas ) com uma actuação recheada de emoções fortes, tão fortes que até me esqueci de ligar o meu amplificador SAMICK de 15w no início da actuação. Agarrado com unhas e dentes à minha primeira guitarra YAMAHA RGX-110, trajado de calças elásticas negras e camisola dos Entombed ” Clandestine ” adquirida na Casa Amarela em Costa Cabral ( Porto ).
Jamais esquecerei o esforço e gosto com que os meus pais ofereceram a minha primeira guitarra e o meu primeiro amplificador, numa manhã de Sábado em pleno ” inferno ” de Agosto. Recordo que a negociação relativamente à cor da guitarra estava difícil entre a minha Mãe e Eu. Ela rendida ao encanto da versão Bordeaux mas eu nem por isso..eu queria negra..o mais negra possível.
As ” tréguas ” foram sanadas quando propus utilizar o cinto da Guitarra na cor que ela mais preferia..o Bordeaux. Talvez uma espécie de metáfora inconsciente da minha parte mas simbólica do Sangue que nos une.
E o Concerto lá começou e até à data ainda não parou!”

Breve descrição
The Official Heavenwood’s FB Page!
Heavenwood was originally formed as a death metal band under the moniker Disgorged in 1992. In 1995 tragedy struck the band as their current bass player committed suicide. They signed a record deal with the German label Massacre Records and their name changed to Heavenwood and released two albums.
“Diva” was promoted with two European tours, the first in the end of 1996 with Atrocity and In Flames and the second one in the spring of 1997 together with Theatre Of Tragedy and Lake Of Tears. They also played with bands such as Cradle Of Filth and Moonspell between others in their home country.
In 1997 “Diva” was released in the Japanese market through Marquee Belle Epoque Records with some extras.
Their second album “Swallow” released in 1998 features guest appearances from Theatre Of Tragedy’s female vocalist Liv Kristine and Gamma Ray’s mastermind Kai Hansen. 1998 was the year for the first Portugese Metal act on the famous Wacken Open Air Festival playing for a full Wet Stage with fans from all over the world followed by more European Tours with bands such as Atrocity, Solitude Aeturnus, Saviour Machine and more. Heavenwood would be considered Band sensation in many important Metal Magazines such as Metal Hammer, Rock Hard and a 4 in 5 in Terrorizer Magazine was ” a gift ” for the Portuguese newcomers effort in the music scene.
Heavenwood were frozen from 2001 to 2003 due to some internal problems. After several line-up changes Bruno Silva turned into the second Guitar-player. October 2003 was the Official Return Show for Heavenwood on the most important Live Rock Club in Portugal with a fullhouse night where almost 1000 people received the band with open harms followed by many gigs in Portugal and Spain.
2008 “Redemption”, was released in the band’s home country of Portugal at the end of August. The special-edition version of the CD (limited to 1,000 copies), which included a free ticket for one of the group’s two record-release shows, sold out almost immediately. Shortly afterwards, a second special edition for the Portuguese market was released, including a totally different artwork and booklet.
“Redemption” was mixed at Fascination Street Studios in Örebro, Sweden with Jens Bogren (Opeth, Soilwork, Amon Amarth). The initial recording sessions for the CD took place at Ultrasound Studios with Daniel Cardoso production and Pedro Mendes assistance. The CD features guest appearances by Annihilator guitarist Jeff Waters (in the song “Bridge To Neverland”), Firewind guitarist Gus G. (in the track “One Step to Devotion”) and singer Tijs Vanneste of the Belgian progressive metallers Oceans Of Sadness (in the song “Obsolete”).
HEAVENWOOD released its fourth album, entitled “Abyss Masterpiece”, on March 14th, 2011 via french Listenable Records. The CD was mixed and mastered by the german producer Kristian “Kohle”Kohlmannslehner (CREMATORY, POWERWOLF, BENIGHTED) at Kohlekeller Studios in Germany.
“Abyss Masterpiece ” was firstly recorded again at USStudios with Daniel Cardoso. The album artwork was created by Matthew Vickerstaff of Darkwave Art, who has previously worked with CRADLE OF FILTH, MY DYING BRIDE, among others).
“Abyss Masterpiece”features guest appearances by RAM-ZET’s Miriam Renvag (also known as SfinX) on a track called “Leonor”, alongside Russian symphonic classical composer Dominic G. Joutsen. “Abyss Masterpiece ” is an intense album, both musical and lyrically. It has great orchestral arrangements by Dominic G. Joutsen that when added to the guitar riffs and melodies made everything become unique, heavier and dark.
2015 ” The Tarot of the Bohemians ” is the fifth album to be released firstly in Portugal, with a limited edition by Raising Legends Records. The album will have the international released and distribution afterwards by a new international label ( t.b.a ).
Inspired and dedicated to the french occultist Papus and his studies regarding the Tarot.
Heavenwood drum sessions for the fifth studio album “The Tarot Of The Bohemians ” were done by Daniel Cardoso ( Anathema ), who previously recorded ” Redemption ” and ” Abyss Masterpiece “. The drum recording session took place at Ultrasoundstudios in Braga.
French drummer Franky Costanza, from the band DAGOBA, is a special guest for this new album. Franky Costanza recorded the songs ” The Wheel of Fortune ” and ” The Lovers “.
Sandra Oliveira, a portuguese female singer from the band BLAME ZEUS, is a special guest on the song ” The High Priestess ”
Fadi Al Shami, from the band ARAMAIC ( Middle East / Dubai ) is a special guest on the song ” The Hermit ”

Ernesto Guerra Vocal recording sessions and Vitor Carvalho Lead Guitars recording sessions took place at the RAISING LEGENDS Studios ( Porto / Portugal )

Breve descrição
Portuguese heavyness.
ITBS is the offspring of Nuno Aguiar de Loureiro.
Shortly after the end of Painstruck, his previous band, the creative “bug” kept biting him and slowly lyrics and songs were created.

Just when the time came to take the leap into a full band format and as a coincidence Jaime Ferreira and João Samora both had left Ava Inferi and were open to new endeavours.
Although Nuno is the raw writer for the base of the songs the overall musical ideology for ITBS is a “free thinking” “do what you feel like” communal effort and that suited perfectly the three friends.

Guitars, Bass and Drums aside the task of finding a vocalist proved to be extremely difficult and after several attempts to find the suitable person, which also caused massive delays to the completion of the album’s recordings, Nuno had to step in as the lead singer at the last minute to complete recordings.
Shortly after Paulo Gonçalves joined the group as lead singer. His work and contribution will be available on an upcomming release in 2016.

In the meantime the first album is now available through label Premiere-Music and it is called “The monster rears its head”.

World domination,…, well, not really.
We’ll stick to playing music from the heart and we’ll see what happens if it happens.
