At the end of 2005 Eduardo F. performed his first show with Holocausto Canibal [12 Years ago], although we were already friends some years before that.
Last week, Eduardo F. decided to take a Death Grind sabbatical leave for an indefinite period of time, but not after he shared a few words with all of you:
“Sometimes one’s life can take you down so many different paths that it becomes virtually impossible to follow each one with the same determination, strength and respect. As some of you may know, I started my career as a tattoo artist a while ago now and most recently I decided to open my own studio (ExInk) in order to follow this vocation that I so passionately cultivate in an everyday basis. It was only the natural step forward that I needed to take and I couldn’t be happier with such decision. However, during the last year I realized that I cannot grant my musical affairs the same focus and dedication, since this craft already became my full time job. That is why I took the decision of suspending my activity as live guitar player for Holocausto Canibal for undetermined time. It would be unfair to remain in that position while having my mind obviously centered in other projects. A band like this demands a great agenda availability not only due to constant touring but also other commitments and lately it has been hard for me to reconcile both band and job activities. It’s obvious that once you become a road animal you will always be a road animal and that’s why I will still be connected with the band composing new music and helping manage this entity that has been a part of my life for 13 years already. This is not a throwing of the Heavy Metal towel to the floor … but let’s just say that the towel will float until further action.”
Does this mean a stop? Not really. The last shows have already been performed as a quartet and we are now composing new material [something that has not happened for quite some time].
At the same time we will continue to accept booking proposals for 2018 anxious for the next bloodsheds with our new lineup [through info@holocaustocanibal or Facebook].
After some involuntarily leaked information that came up in the last months, we are finally ready to present you EXTREMA! As some of you may be already thinking “Oh no, not another band beer…”. Well, it’s not. This fine red headed Barley Wine beer is an extreme beer developed by Master brewer Pedro Sousa and curated by HC, for heavy drinkers, by heavy drinkers. Since the beginning of our partnership, we’ve been gathering some feedback from the ones who’ve tasted PS beers and we kept asking “What would an extreme beer be like, fit for extreme metal musicians?”. Apparently, Pedro already had the answer.
EXTREMA is a very successful and accomplished Barley Wine type of beer (you can Google it for more info) and features an impressive 16º of alcohol volume. It’s a fresh take on an expert level type of beer, that will surprise even the most seasoned beer lover, and will take its toll in the most seasoned drinkers. The hoppy flavour is topped by fruity notes and it leaves a fresh and somewhat bittersweet taste in your mouth.
The first batch will be available at Porto Beer Fest and HC will be pouring some pints together with the Post Scriptum team next Friday, 16th of June after 21H. For those who are willing to dare and taste this ungodly nectar, be sure to grab it fresh of the barrel and exclusively on tap. More news will unveil when the time’s right and you’ll be able to get yours’ on a bottle in a very near future.

So we’re back home but still recovering from all the damage done, we feel like we lost many years of life in this one. It was amazing to return to the East and meet old and new friends. Always good to return to Prague, the pearl of the East (…two years really seemed a long time), and Jihlava was probably one of the most extraordinary yet strange nights we had this year! Of course, Slovakia had to be in the tourlist, and it matched all expectations! Memory Error Fest was insane! And last, but not least, the one and only, Rape The Escape. It was an incredible experience to be a part of the greatest X-Mas Grind Gathering in Eastern Europe. We would like to thank Ronny Frohner for the invitation and, of course, Paraschiv Mihaela [CLITGORE] and the mighty Blut Eisen [BLOOD] for accepting the challenge of playing with us a few tunes. Hope we can repeat the experience in a not so distant future! Now we would like to express our deepest gratitude for the two maniacs that made this possible and helped form the team that ravaged and pillaged these four cities last week: Boy-G from Grunt, handling vocal duties, and Mário G., who without a blink accepted the challenge of learning a set of songs from a style he never heard before and is from now on connected to GRIND for life. Thank you both for the INSANE times spent on this tour! Thank you Prague, Jihlava, Kanianka and Vienna. Hope we can see you again very, very soon!
