    ORPHANED LAND posted "Australia??" on their facebook page an hour ago :)

    Could be purely fishing for interest in a possible tour, or could be that they are gonna be part of Soundwave maybe?

    Oooh, I wonder if Mr Zombie will be doing side shows :D

    I'd like to see Amon Amarth, and Testament again would be awesome.

    am still unable to give a fuck about soundwave but at least living in Tassie gives me a stronger excuse not to bother with it. :p

    That would be rather good! I've never seen either of them, but would like to see Helmet in particular. I was pissed off when I had to work when they played at Festival Hall in about 1994. They've been here since but I still haven't made it along.

    a friend of mine was just telling me that they had to endure a bitch session from one of the Soundwave touring minions complaining about the lack of sales for their side tours and other non-festival shows and they, the minion, supposedly couldn't accept the idea of over saturation in the marketplace and punter fatigue meaning that if there are too many tours going on, people won't go to any of them unless they have a heavily emotional investment in the act.

    I certainly skip a lot more tours than I see! There are way too many to attend. I go to all the ones I'm really keen on, but not many which I'm only half interested in.

    And Steel Panther, fuck yeah! Playing at the Music Bowl in Melbourne is huge. Soundgarden and GnR have played there in recent times.

    Wouldn't say I hate 'em - to be honest, I can honestly say I've never listened to a full song of their's.

    And will die happily if that remains the case. I just have zero interest in 'em.
