    People are allowed to 'support' up to 3 'campaign's. So I will definitely be supporting Believer and Korpiklaani.

    Not all campaigns have started yet - I know people mentioned that they wanted to campaign for Tyr, Sabaton and Eluveitie so if they got selected I would back one of them.

    If not, I'll definitely give my third and final vote to Soen.

    I read a random comment on a forum once which went along the lines of:

    Many virtuoso guitarists are all about 'look at how cool I am', Paul Gilbert is more interested in 'look at how cool playing guitar is'

    All 20 band campaigns have now started.

    EVILE, HAVOK and DIABLO SWING ORCHESTRA are also amongst it. Cool.

    This shows how out of touch I am these days, but of those bands I've only heard of Evile, Tyr and Sabaton! :)

    That's a good quote!

    ________________________________________

    Apocalyptica are coming. Twenty years from inception, one of the biggest names in European metal is finally touring Australia. Combining classical nuance with brutal breakdowns, this fantastic Finnish four-piece are quintessential Eurock with a difference. They are metal, with cellists.

    Their most recent album, 7th Symphony was produced by Joe Baressi (Queens Of The Stone Age, Tool) and features guests vocalists including Gavin Rossdale (Bush), Brent Smith (Shinedown), Joe Duplantier (Gojira) and Diane Warren (Award winning songwriter for artists like Aerosmith, Toni Braxton, Celine Dion). 7th Symphony has been touted as the band’s most inspired release to date, with equal emphasis on beautiful melodies and heavy, bombastic rhythms.

    Their track Beautiful is particularly bare and vulnerable, but it may have something to do with its unique recording process. “We decided to play it naked,” songwriter Eicca Toppinen says. “It was a moment where there were four guys naked in the room just playing acoustic music. Being naked always brings good feelings. Immediately, it was much more fun.”

    7th Symphony’s guest stars and subsequent reception may be staggering, but it’s perfectly in keeping with their pedigree. Interestingly, Apocalyptica was originally formed as a cover band, and a simple creative outlet for Toppinen and three of his classically-trained classmates at Helsinki’s Sibelius Academy. Their debut release - a Metallica covers album - created a stir amongst fans, but the band eventually blossomed into their own beast with 2007’s World’s Collide (which featured Slipknot’s Corey Taylor, Lacuna Coil’s Cristina Scabbia, Rammstein vocalist Till Lindemann amongst others), which rocketed onto the Billboard charts without warning, landing at #59 on the Hot 200 and never looking back.

    Now with over four million album sales worldwide to date and a reputation for an incredible live show under their belt Apocalyptica make their first ever trip to Australia this August. Don’t miss these unique live performances.

    Regarding the Dark Funeral show at the Factory... how the hell are there going to be "two stages" there?

    The Factory is actually a labrynthine place, they've got all these other rooms all over the place. Black Cherry club uses quite a few of them. Mind you, I don't really know why its necessary to have 2 stages for 5 bands...

    SO pumped for Apocalyptica! Brisbane gig is two days before my birthday, so even before this gig announcement I'd planned to flex the Friday off from work.

    Perfect timing :)

    Anyone know how vocal duties are handled by Apocalyptica on tour? Do they just bring along some random? Not play any of the songs with lyrics?

    Is there seating in the HiFi Bar in Sydney?

    Trying to convince my mum to come along to Apocalyptica because she's a pretty big fan but doesn't want to have to stand all night.
    Never been there myself (unless it had another name years ago).
    Anyone know the cost and supports yet?

    If they only have the floor open (which is likely) then no, it's pretty much standing only.

    They might provide seating upstairs, but you can't see shit from up there.
