My Metal story
I love Metal since 1977. Between 83 and 86 I
belonged to the direction of one of the first Metal fan clubs in
Portugal, called Legião Negra (Black Legion). This club published a paper zine called Sons do Apocalypse (Sounds from Apocalypse,
same as this net page) that last for 11 numbers. Some years ago, I
started my adventures on the net making one of the few portuguese Metal
ezines, then based on a national free server, but after lots of problems
I moved to Tripod.
This is my new adventure, now in English, but maintaining the basic
objectives of the previous Portuguese page. I'm trying to make a page,
easy to load and easy to maintain, where I hope to give some information
useful for Metal fans. I hope also to contribute for some Portuguese
