Hello to you all!

I would like to present my Zine/Blog/Social Media music related Platform.

Utopia Platafórmica was created in September 2019, with the intention of venting emotions and feelings, always around the subject of Music. The first step was the creation of the blog and the consequent presence on social networks (Facebook & Instagram).

The next, and logical, step would be to design something more, a new communication platform and way of passing messages. This is how “Abasy” came about, a Fanzine that had only two issues - edited in physical format - and focused, almost exclusively, on the Portuguese Black Metal scene of the 90s (a little “telling the story”). This was a 2 man job. They are both in English. In case someone wants to read it, please send me a message!

Unfortunately, turned out to be too restricted for the ideas we had. Once again, it was necessary to take a new step. This time - and so far - “Rock em Chamas” was created. From the most extreme Heavy Metal, to Punk / Oi, going through more 70s sounds, and where each one of us should go.

We were able to compile material for a 1st edition, which we planned to edit in physical format. Unfortunately, this pandemic literally prevented us from going ahead with immediate plans. It was posted online, available to everyone.

However, the duo broke up and, I was left, alone, to insist on this! It will last as long as it has to, until this scribe gets fed up and gives up, too, on it.

I will try to keep this post up to date, in the same way that I will try to operate it on any, and all, platforms that the (Web) Zine is on. This (Web) Zine / Platform is, above all, an extension of the “dividends” that I take from the act of listening to Music, in the form of words.

Besides writing "solo", I contribute to the following Webzines: Portuguese "World of Metal" and Dutch "VM Underground". In both, I centre almost 100% on Black Metal, but my independent work goes way beyond the boundaries of Extreme Metal, to whatever destination I feel I need to go. Quite poetic, cliché, whatever ahahah

So far, most of my material is in Portuguese - that is my home market, after all - but I plan on, slowly, move up to English or Spanish or even French, depending on the artist/band I interview. That is a matter I shall ponder closely in a near future.

I do not mind contacts from bands/projects/artists. Like I said before, i "work" for 2 webzines, and that means sending them the material (digital, of course) I receive from lesser known/non-signed bands.

Thank you in advance for any, and all, feedback. Available for advice, opinions, stones and whatever!

Fell free to contact me for whatever reason, please!

It is a pleasure to be here!

Hello again,

Well, as referred in my first post, a small zine dedicated to Portuguese Black Metal was written and published, distributed in an amazing Heavy Metal store in Porto, Portugal - you should ALL check it - to friends and costumers.

Considering that zine is dead and you probably will never get a hand on it... because you could not care less ahahahah I decided to post it here. Enjoy its simplicity and childish end result :D

This might come a bit late, but nonetheless it may please those that were there... and can read Portuguese.
This edition of the event is, so far and in my opinion, the strongest of them all.
From the behemoth from the USA - Sanguine Relic - to the crazy "threesome" from Austria - Kringa, Alruna & Hagzissa - and the immense Portuguese acts, this 6th edition of IRM was tremendous, and words do not do it justice.
Nonetheless, here are a few of them.
This year's edition is not, again in my opinion, as strong as the 2019 one, but the event is always a must.

Hope you enjoy.

Hello to all,

I am hereby presenting this first - and only - edition of the Zine the followed "Abasy".

"Rock em Chamas" (Rock in Flames) was the evolution, per se, of the previous fanzine. A much broader approach to the Heavier/Alternative sides of Music.

All in English, for everyone to appreciate.

Thank you.

Hey, people.

New Portuguese Black Metal act: MALDITO.

https://utopiaplataformica.blogspot.com/2020/06/maldito-o-renascer-o-crer-2020-odia-5.html

Reminiscent of the prime days of Black Metal, it holds a deep and strong scent of Death.

Do give it a go, and enjoy!
