    Line up was too shit for me to justify flying down from QLD. Hope it takes off though and gets bigger and better.

    Gojira are amazing live.

    Damn that makes me feel old when I still think of that stuff as “new” (nu) metal as opposed to the “old school” stuff I prefer!

    Yeah the main stage was mostly older bands as headliners and the new young ones earlier in the day or on other stages.

    There were always going to be clashes but not as many as soundwave used to get. Only having three stages play at the same time was a good move.

    Same here.

    I do appreciate that it brought Amon Amarth, Gojira and Mastodon into the country though.
    Consecutive nights in Sydney, they were outstanding.

    Seriously pick this up dudes. If you like early Dillinger Escape Plan you should like this.

    Such a filthy, despairing, aggressive, primal sound. Soundtrack to a breakdown, playing on a loop inside a madman's head as his chainsaw begins to bite into his leg. In other words, it's f**king brutal:

    Have never paid much attention to parkway drive before, heard a song from the new one on jjj on the weekend which I liked so had a listen to the whole album.

    Have to say it’s pretty awesome. Have listened to it many times since already.

    My wife watches the voice. I was subjected to seeing one of the little diseases that perform on this show like a trained seal.

    They dressed him in a f**king Overkill T-shirt.

    I can't stand seeing these pop singers wearing metal tees as a fashion statement.

    New Dimmu Borgir CD been out a month or so now. Different to their early days, a lot more big production here with orchestra backing and back up choir, much the the Northern Lights concert they did a few years back.

    Best CD they have ever done for mine and they'll be touring here in October.

    Man I feel old and jaded, theres about two bands there I’d even pop down to the Stag or Factory to see. Kinda sucks now that I finally have the financial means to do euro/American festivals, I generally don’t have any interest in the lineups, 10 years ago I’d have cream over most of them.
