Sepultura in Wrocław

Brazilian Metal in Wrocław. That's true! Brazil is not only carnival, sun and beaches! We bring the metal to the people!! Ha! Last Tuesday (17th of August) I attended Sepultura's concert in Wrocław and that was my third time in a Sepultura live gig (1999, 2003, 2010), but none of them with Max Cavalera on vocals. Max's band (SoulFly) also performed in Wrocław months ago but I was in Brazil! (my bad). I'm satisfied with the new Sepultura and the new album A-Lex. This year I've been being lucky so far, because my favourites songs are being played in every concert I go! Metallica performed "Disposable Heroes" and "Fade to black" this year and Sepultura performed my favourite "Ratamahatta" with additional percussion. I head-banged so hard that my neck still hurts! A big "Oh yeeeaaaah!" for that!!! :D
I'm pretty sure that I was the only Brazilian in the audience!! The only real extreme-brutal-brazilian-metal-force fan!! hehe!! Even thought it's possible to see on the photo beside, a wristband with the Brazilian flag depicted -- that was not me! :)

I found on YouTube an amateur footage of the live performance of "Ratamahatta". Please see below:

Enjoy also few photo albums from different sources:

Silesian castles

More reasons to visit Poland? Its beautiful castles and ruins! If you want to take nice photos and feel a little bit of the medieval spirit of centuries ago, be welcomed to Silesia (southern Poland).

I had the opportunity to visit few castles and ruins last weekend with friends from Chorzów and we started from Ogrodzieniec, beautiful medieval ruins in which heavy metal band Iron Maiden, recorded a video clip for their classic song "Hallowed by thy name" [Click here to see it]. This castle ruins reminded me the Spišský hrad (in Slovakia), it's really an open-air treasure! Next castle was the Bobolice castle, no longer ruins because it was fully rebuilt, this one has a nice natural stone gate and has a nice view to the forest. The third castle to visit was the castle Mirów, which is still not open for public visitation because needs restoration. Nice photos and pleasant weekend. Special thanks to Ania Osadnik for inviting me.

Castles that I would buy myself to start my kingdom! :)
