Its only April but the massive success Soundwave saw in 2012 means punters are already hanging out for some 2013 lineup secrets. Soundwave boss, AJ Maddah, has already copped a barrage of Twitter questions about the 2013 lineup, and as usual he’s happy to let the fans know where things are at. So far it
It is quite possibly one of the most awesome, unexpected and amazing collaborations this year. Soundwave 2012ers, Mastodon, have teamed up with the beautiful songstress Fiest to bring us one of the coolest releases this Record Store Day. Mastodon’s drummer, Brann Dailor, explained to Swedish rock magazine Metalshrine how the project came about, “We did
The Soundwave 2012 Festival came to an end last night in Perth and some moving footage has emerged on YouTube of SID’s final crowd jump for the tour. Corey Taylor dedicates their final Australian show and everything they’ve done in the past year to Paul Gray during the perfect end to an awesome tour. The
AJ Maddah sure knows how to work the magic. First he somehow conjured up an on-stage appearance from Slash during Alter Bridge’s set, now he has scored the first ever live performance of Gojira’s 2011 epic, Of Blood and Salt.

After a week of rain, it was fair to say that I was nervous about the weather holding out for Soundwave this year. Alas, it did. As the morning set in, it was clear skies ahead and we made the monotonous trek to The Melbourne Show Grounds (along with every other black-attired alternate music lover)
Yesterday I attended my third Soundwave Festival in four years – and it was without doubt the best one yet.
The Soundwave Festival is nearly over and Slipknot will soon leave the country, however, some cute footage has emerged on YouTube of Slipknot landing in the country.

Times of Grace is somewhat of a holy grail for metal fans.
It was a wet and miserable leap day in 2012. While this may have been a damper on most people’s days, it actually set the tone for me as I headed to the Enmore Theatre for my one-and-only Sidewave show this year. Walking into a sea of black, I was wildly surprised at the diversity

It was a strange sight to see: the luxurious Sheraton On The Park hotel in Sydney’s CBD busy with tour managers, record label reps, journalists and rock stars all running around in some mad harmony pulling the strings that allow the Soundwave machine to keep running.
Chasing the dragon that was the high from Soundwave Sydney, I ventured to The Enmore Theatre to catch English lads and alternative rock legends Bush. It’s safe to say I was out of my element for this gig: I clearly had the skinniest jeans and the most facial piercings, but it’s when we leave our
