We caught up with Whitechapel's Alex Wade recently, most ostensibly to talk about their forthcoming Soundwave appearances throughout Australia in 2010. Unfortunately, the interview was quite short because the phone connection was absolute shite. Ah well; you win some, you lose some. But suffice it to say, the guys are hell excited about hitting the land down under this coming February.
As expected, metal fans have come out in force for the massive triple bill of Lamb Of God, Devildriver and Shadows Fall. The Sydney show on Saturday 12 December has now sold out, but a second and final show will be held on Sunday 13 December.
This mind blowing triple bill of metal titans could not be complete without Massachusetts finest, Shadows Fall. Combining honest integrity and violent brutality into one frightening package, they continue to push the boundaries with their distinctive mix of bone-splintering aggression and melodic nuance.
