Hi, My name is João ( John in English ), I'm from Portugal.

My two passions are Music and Bodyboard. I play guitar and piano and i usually surf on world class spot Supertubos, Peniche.

My main music genre is Progressive Rock/Metal. Bands like Pink Floyd, Jethro Tull, Emerson Lake and Palmer, Dream Theater, Opeth and Redemption are bands that really influence my life and of course my style of playing.

My top 5 bands are:

1 - Pink Floyd - The first band I heard. My father shown to me when I was seven. For me, is the greatest band of all time, and I can't imagine my life without Pink Floyd. They influened me to pick up a guitar and start playing. Wish You Were Here is for me the greatest album of Rock History.

2 - Metallica - The first Metal Band I heard. As 75 % of headbangers of new generation ( the others started to listen to Metal Music with New Metal, Metal Style I Hate ) I started to listen to Metallica, with their ballads. Fade To Black, Welcome Home ( Sanitarium ), Nothing Else Matters, etc. When I started to listen to real Metallica, a new world opened to me, and I discovered the amazing world of Metal Music. Still today, although I don't listen to Metallica so many times as before, they continue to have my love, and my connection to Metallica is not only musically. Sentimentally also.

3 - Opeth - Now I will start to talk about my favorite Metal bands, that I don't have a love connection so strong like the 2 before. So, this bands are my favorite of this days, for the recent works. Opeth, is probably my favorite metal band. They reinvented and reinvent with every album the concept of Death Metal Music. Besides that, Mikael is a lover of 70's Progressive Rock, as me, and he tries to put some of his influences into Opeth music, and coud create a revolucionary sound with the brutallity of Death Metal and the greatests acoustic guitar melodys and voices.

4 - Dream Theater - Well. DT is like a place, a bar, where the greatest musicians of the world meet and jam. For me each member of Dream Theater ( unless the new drummer. He could be really good, and it is, but Portnoy is on other level ) is on top 5 of his instrument. Actually, i believe that John Petrucci is the best guitarist of the world. They have fantastic songs, great albums and have the spirit of Progressive Rock.

5 - Redemption - Well, another Progressive Rock/Metal band. I discovered Redemption on a Portuguese Metal Magazine.
I searched for Redemption Albums and the first I heard was Fullness of Time. Probably their best work. Ray Alder is a great vocalist, and actually i prefer his works on Redemption than on Fates Warning.

Sorry for my english!!!
