The amount I spent there would be enough to buy a car. But I have no regrets, I love that place.

Mr. Noise

There is a place at the top of the building that normally bands go for signing and interviews. I miss that place.

It's an awesome place, for sure. I brought the only Bathory t-shirt I could find there, and the last t-shirt as well

I was there at Saturday afternoon and I met a Portuguese girl that was there. She was taking a photo of a Moonspell concert banner in a store and I gone talk with her. Speed talking - about Moonspell - because she was with a Brazilian friend, but for me a thing became clear: she comes to São Paulo and said to the friend "I wanna see any 'metal point', do we can go?"

In fact, I wanted to invite her, but I'm very shy...
