Biography

Precursors of Portuguese Industrial/Electronic Metal, Bizarra Locomotiva (translated: Bizarre Locomotive) occupy today a comfortable place in their country’s musical panorama. Their story starts in 1993, when Armando Teixeira (vocals and machines) and Rui Sidónio (vocals) form a band in order to enter the Modern Music Contest of Lisbon, an important national event that had already succeeded in making other bands well known.

That would also be the case of Bizarra Locomotiva, who by winning the contest had a chance to participate in the appraised French festival Printemps de Bourges, in which they returned in 1994. Miguel Fonseca (guitars, ex-Thormentor, ex-Braindead, later also on Mofo) came to create a stronger line-up, contributing decisively to the growth of the band.

The year of 1994 would reveal itself as a good year in albums: in April the band released its self-titled first album, followed in November by “First Crime, Then Live” which was organized in two parts, one recorded in studio and sung in English (their only songs in English language so far), and other recorded live from France sung entirely in Portuguese.

After participating in the 7th Bi-annual Contest of Young Creators of Mediterranean Europe, Bizarra Locomotiva embarked in a well succeeded national tour. Their highest moment on stage was, however, in August of 1997, year where they performed in Sudoeste Festival, in promotion of the EP Fear Now, next to bands like Marilyn Manson.

    O que a minha mensagem pretendia transmitir é que Mão Morta não sendo parecido com Bizarra faz muito mais sentido aparecer nos artistas similares do que Ena Pá 2000, e no entanto fez-te confusão foram os Mão Morta :P

    AndréMMJesus, isso compara-se? xD Ainda a semana passada fui ver Mão Morta ao vivo, e só se falar-se da letra, que têm boa qualidade, que de som nada a haver mesmo!
