2016 brought the first scream of fire with its epicenter in Lisbon as HER NAME WAS FIRE first appears with emotions running hot, during a late night bar conversation between two friends already deprived of their wits.
From the minds of João Campos and Tiago Lopes, a tight Groove-Rock duo impregnated with burnt passions, Stoner, Grunge and Blues is born.
With the massive, screaming low-end frequencies of a guitar, the thunderous and fiery rhythms of drums blended with sleazy melodic vocals, HER NAME WAS FIRE arrived to shake the foundations of Rock and lure the ears of those who dare to cross the path of their demolishing sound waves.
During their debut year they played a number of live gigs and festivals, sharing stage with several international bands such as Death Hawks, Nick Oliveri’s Mondo Generator, The Vintage Caravan amongst others, conquering all the crowds and gathering fans with their fierce, powerful and unique performances.
At the moment they are regarded as one of the most prominent emerging bands in Portugal and the global Rock scene, with their first full-length album “ROAD ANTICS” – written and produced by the band – seeing the light of day on February 2017.
