Event Reviews

Waiting outside The Hi-Fi at West End to get into the show, I can hear snatches of conversation from the punters lined up along with me. There's a lot of anticipation about this show, and with good reason - Sonata Arctica's first Australian show ever, supported by fellow sons of Suomi Ensiferum and Melbourne's own Vanishing Point...
A night of speed-infused heaviness, invoking a party some atmosphere amongst bands and fans alike. Told early on this was no ordinary concert: this was a party, all three bands, Shadows Fall, DevilDriver and Lamb of God, performed with enthusiasm encouraging revellers to a frenzy.
Legendary New York grindcore merchants Brutal Truth hit Sydney alongside some of Australia's finest grinders for an evening of grind and some other interesting entertainment.

Festy Hall once again hosted a mini-American festival Down Under, brimming with hot, sticky and hungry-for-metal maniacs. Oh, and let's not forget Metal Santa...
Australia's metal fans have been quite spoiled with the array of bands who are able to tour down here due to our strong dollar and the lineup featuring Lamb Of God, Devildriver, Shadows Fall & High On Fire was bang for the buck and had something for the majority of metal fans.
Perth: ransacked.
A resplendent night of awe-inspiring metal and music from the genre's flagship group.
Final thoughts… final thoughts!
