Re: Lisbon and Porto

Some really great/interesting metal coming out of Portugal at the moment (Vaee Solis, Carma, Dead Procession etc.) so might be worth keeping an eye out on that front if such things happen to be your bag.

Re: Lisbon and Porto

There's lots of decent record shops in Lisbon, go to as many as you can, most quite central. Other than that, the usual tourist stuff is recommended -  Belem tower, the Berrardo Collection (one of the best modern art museums I've been to), the famous custard tart place (Pasteis de Belem), the Santa Justa Lift (great views), the tile museum. Also take a cable car over the sea (much nicer than Barcelona ones, as a comparison), and just generally enjoy the amazing (and heavily tiled) architecture. Be prepared for how hilly it is too. There's also nice food everywhere (prego sandwiches recommended) and weirdly more drugs sold openly than anywhere else I've been (they have relative complete legalisation).
