    Competition on Soundworks Touring's website - only valid ticket holders could enter so I figured there would be a good chance of me winning if I entered.

    I was right :D

    The show was awesome - at least 200 people there (probably more). Dead Letter Opener were first up - from about 8.20pm to about 8.50. Only caught 1 song as we were sitting out the front drinking.

    Claim The Throne came on around 9.15 through to 10ish and they were superb. Really entertaining.

    Then Finntroll came on 10.30 and tore shit up. Played for a little over an hour, then back for a 2-song encore. Doesn't sound like much but they don't fuck around - songs are short and sweet, bit of chat between songs but not overdone, just great.

    Gotta make special mention for the venue - the Brisbane Hifi is a great venue. Great air conditioning, sound quality was amazing, and nicely structured inside with 4 or 5 different tiers so everyone has a great chance of a good view of the stage.

    So, everyone had a good time at Finntroll it seems :) Hopefully some more folk bands like Tyr, Korpiklaani etc make their way down here now.

    Speaking of, there is a campaign to get Eluveitie down here for Soundwave next year.

    http://www.soundwavefestival.com/node/101470#comment-266543

    Basically all you do is register on the forum if you haven't already, and then send this guy a message saying you support the campaign:

    Oh,and those disappointed by the lack of anything good in the early "Soundwave Revolution" announcements, AJ tweeted this morning "Let There Be Metal" - so here's hoping for something good!!

    According to MelodicRock.com Motley Crue and Def Leppard are touring Oz seperately in late 2011.

    I heard that it's Def Leppard and Cheap Trick again. No complaints from me as both were awesome last time. Although a headline show from Cheap Trick would be much better.

    I'm willing to bet that the Steel Panther tour will be in support of one of these tours

    Given the timing of when they said they'd be here, Steel Panther are also a possibility for Soundwave Revolution.

    Other metal acts rumoured for Soundwave Revolution include Lacuna Coil, In This Moment, and Alice Cooper.

    Alice Cooper has stated in recent interviews that Welcome to my nightmare 2 will be released next year as he is commited to various festival appearances around the globe...Australia listed as one of the country's...so that does sound like it could possible be right!!

    Would be interesting to see Alice front a soundwave-like festival.

    Some more rumoured names of interest for the festival I've heard are:

    Watain
    Kverlertak
    Every Time I Die
    The Damned Things
    Anthrax

    EDIT: Just read that "Every Time I Die", "The Acacia Strain" and "Whitechapel" have officially been added.

    In This Moment and The Damned Things officially added to Soundwave Revolution.

    I think its pretty much a guarantee now that ANTHRAX will be part of it.

    That would make sense, if The Damned Things are playing it. I read today that Soundwave Revolution is a move to bury No Sleep til, but that wouldn't be difficult if what I heard about that is even partly true.

    Sounds very likely Gore - apparently (according to a post on faster louder) the organiser of Soundwave is trying to monopolise the festival circuit:

    "Not to mention the rumour that he's tying every band on the lineups into 18 month contracts so they can't tour here with other promote"

    Oh, and HELLYEAH have been officially confirmed - nice catch JetHead ;)

    Devin Townsend is coming to Australia for Soundwave Revolution.

    Lineup is starting to get interesting at last :)

    He just announced he would be in Oz on Twitter this year but nothing about that.

    Hope that he does side shows.

    He used the swRevolution hashtag - its definitely for Soundwave Rev:

    Faster Louder's list is being updated constantly:

    http://www.fasterlouder.com.au/news/local/27956/Soundwave-Revolution-confirmations-rumours-and-bets

    Currently, In This Moment and Devin are enough to get me there. Would definitely checkup Hellyeah, Damned Things, Whitechape and Sum 41 if they don't clash. Most of the other bands there I've never even heard of :p
