Koen B. : Thirdsphere is a relatively new metalcore act hailing from Portugal that started in 2007 and self-released a demo CD entitled 'This Is Thirdsphere' in 2009. 'Fire' is their second effort that was released several months ago and is available by sending an e-mail to email@example.com. The band promotes themselves as a traditional heavy metal band but I prefer to call them a metalcore band because musically they use heavily downtuned guitars and tons of breakdowns. Weakest link in Thirdsphere is singer Nuno Cardoso who has a fine deep grunt / growl but his clean vocals have no range whatsoever, way to soaring pitched and scratchy. Simply call them horrendous! If this band ever wants to get in the limelight, they better find a second frontman that takes Thirdsphere to a whole other level. Of course, Cardoso can stay but he has to concentrate on groaning in stead of singing. Let's see what the future will bring.
