Portugal isn't only raw black metal (Black Cilice, Trono Além Morte...) nor violent thrash metal (Perpetrator, Toxik Attack...) but also something infinitely heavier like Candura! They plays a kind of music going very beyond the genres usually faced on this 'zine but, at the same time, they completely deserve to be featured on these pages because they are really extreme! And if memory serves, you can find something similar here only with the Italian project Bleeding Void of Utter Mysticism but these ones, in comparison with Candura, sounds "light"! So, today I will scare you with this duo from Portugal that contacted me in November 2018 to ask me to review their debut full-lenght album, mysteriously entitled "/I", released last year through GreySun Records, an obscure US label located in Portland, Oregon.
