I'm from Porto, north of the country, and since late eighties / early nineties there's a hardcore scene in Portugal. It all started in the capital Lisbon, in the center, with bands like:



New Winds


They started to pass their message and had some fun. There were a lot bands starting and splitting up, there were times that bands and zones were in conflict, but with time passing by the problems were solved, and despite all the hypocrisy, there's a big union between the north and south. And of course there are times when the scene is less active but it never dies and it keeps on growing and moulding through times, there's always something happening.
