    The numbers were a bit dire last time (we did the Sydney support) but it was a decent show regardless. :)

    Nah Alex didn't say - I would assume that it would probably be Rockstar, but there a are few new players in the market now so it could be any of them.

    We had Rev Kris Hades in Brisbane. That was.....DIFFERENT :p

    Liv and Alex both instantly recognised the tour shirt I was wearing, as I wore the Oz tour shirt to the meet and greet. Liv excitedly thumped Alex going "Alex! Do you remember this shirt????"

    And the guitarist Thorsten told me "I love that shirt, I still have that shirt, occasionally my Mum wears it even"

    Yeah what the hell's with the Megadeth cancellation? Very odd.

    Just speculating but it looks like Dave gave his management a list of "approved" bands that he's OK to play with. Management misunderstood that as "if they're not on the list Dave doesn't want them on a bill with him" and told that to AJ from Soundwave who lost his shit back at management, thinking Dave was butt-hurt about Jason Newsted being on the bill (which was never the case). Things escalated, accusations flew and it ended up as "stop saying shit about us or we're not doing it", "you're not the boss of me, dare you", "fine, laters." Somewhere in the middle of that Megadeth's management was fired too so there was clearly some issues going on.

    Both Dave and AJ are pretty proud people and don't suffer idiots easily - even people they mistake as idiots, and I think they both have a bit of trouble stepping back once they think they've been wronged. Real shame for everyone wanting to see Megadeth.

    It seemed like AJ wasn't involved in changing the lineups, and made the mistake of speculating to the media about Dave before he knew the full story. Likewise, Dave threw accusations without knowing the full story of what his own management had done. If only Soundwave hadn't been so willing to treat Newsted like crap on request.

    COOL!!

    And now add Killswich to the list:



    KILLSWITCH ENGAGE’s ‘Alive Or Just Breathing’ album was a watershed moment in metal in 2002 as it heralded the birth of ‘Metalcore’. Now, more than a decade later, KILLSWITCH ENGAGE have reunited with original singer Jesse Leach. "This change is very exciting," the band said upon announcing Leach's triumphant return. "We know you're going to love it. This is truly a new era in KsE history and it is ready to shred your face off.”

    However, KILLSWITCH ENGAGE have never coasted on the wave of prior successes and with the band in the form of their career and Leach spitting venomous vocals at every turn, “Disarm The Descent is an overdue return, a prodigal son story and their best album since The End Of Heartache.” – Kerrang!

    Most so-called "supergroups" wind up being less than the sum of their already-famous parts. KILL DEVIL HILL, featuring members from such illustrious groups as Black Sabbath, Dio, Pantera, Down and Ratt is a splendid exception to that rule.

    A supergroup in the truest sense of the word, KILL DEVIL HILL created a masterpiece on its self-titled debut and have raised the bar on their new album ‘Revolution Rise’...”it is simply one ass-kicking hard rock outfit making heavy as fuck rock and roll music”. Metalholic

    If you're editing your list, you could add Kylesa, Monster Magnet and Russian Circles. I'd see Monster Magnet if they bothered to come here!

    Done - crowded gig calendar much?

    At any other time I would have been at Finntroll, Septicflesh, Monster Magnet in a heartbeat. Would have even hit up CoB if I was starved for gigs!

    As it is, with DT, IE and OL all must-sees in March, and rumoured tours by Gloryhammer and Within Temptation which are both will-travel-interstate-for bands for me, I have to limit myself!

    Not at all. :p My wallet is so glad I live in NZ. I'd be slightly tempted to pop over if the Tankard tour is happening, but it might be bad timing, and I should probably keep saving up the airpoints for bands that are actually on my bucket list.

    Yeah, I'll believe it when I see it announced that one, Nitephyre.

    The band themselves have again, expressed in interviews recently that they want to tour Australia this year.

    BUT:

    - they've been saying that every album for the last 10 year
    - I know people 'in the business' that have dealt with them, and apparently they:
    (a) want a lot of money; and
    (b) want to play arenas

    Cannot see it happening. Would love to be proven wrong.

    Thanks for the run down re Megadeth, LT. Makes a lot of sense.

    Re Within Temptation, they're kidding themselves if they think they can play an arena here. It's not Holland. I'd love to see them, but it won't happen if they stick to that criterion.

    Whelp, that's pretty much over then :)

    I mean, WT are excellent, but if the best that Iced Earth, Epica, Finntroll, Amon Amarth, Sonata Arctica etc. etc. etc. can get here is the Hi-Fi bar, we're boned.
