BESTA Portugal

BESTA - Simbolos Da Ignorancia


Escaping from the dark places in the imagination, Portuguese hellions BESTA take inspiration from horror movies and blend them into a frantic, feedback-laden mash-up of punk-rock and old school grindcore.

With four confrontational releases since 2012, and shows alongside EYEHATEGOD, CATTLE DECAPTIATION, MOB 47, CRYPTOPSY and POSSESSED, 2014 will see them pay tribute to the master of horror with new EP "John Carpenter", and take their place as masters of grind at OBSCENE EXTREME!!!


Hailing from the darkest corners of Lisbon, Portugal comes Besta, a trio featuring members of If Lucy Fell, Men Eater and We Are The Damned formed in 2012. Fueled with a large dose of orthodox Punk and Grind, to be more specific Bad Brains and old Napalm Death, those are the key ingrEdients for their sound, always with their own creative vein on top of every tune they deliver, with a political axe to grind, shouted on their native Portuguese tongue, they do have a lot of pissed off to say and sure to leave an impact on the extreme music scene.

Besta´s debut album “Ajoelha-Te Perante A Besta” got on the 5 best albums of 2012 on Loud Magazine in Portugal and Blitz Magazine. They have toured all over native Portugal and Spain, as well as supporting and playing festivals with bands such as Massgrave, Eyehategod, Risk It, Suicidal Angels, Holocausto Canibal or Process Of Guilt. Their music will leave no one indifferent both live and on tape, the band sure bashes all boundaries with an extended forefinger into the face of fashion. Besta´s new offering“Sincronismo Do Mal” EP was mixed and mastered by Steve Austin from Today Is The Day fame.
