SPARTA REVIEW

As the set continued with hits including "Like an Angel, Relentless, Wolves at the Door and Si Vis Pacem Parabellum", Yngwie didn't miss a single guitar note and the killer kick and snare beats filled the room with rhythm.

PANDEMONIUM REVIEW

Alice walked off the stage and came back on with a snake around his neck while he played 'Snakebite'. The stage props were amazing and they were only getting better.

A crowd favourite was up next and "Poison" started running through my veins.

Suffocation

SUFFOCATION REVIEW

Suffocation kicked off their set with "Seraphim Enslavement, Thrones of Blood, Breeding the Spawn and Dim Veil of Obscurity" and the band brought an energy to the stage that was off the charts. Ricky Myers delivered insane, authoritative growls, with traditional brutal tones. As the band continued their set with songs including "Pierced From Within, Hymns From the Apocrypha and Liege of Inveracity the tempo variations were sinister and the thick melodies and crushing grooves were fast and blasty supported by technical framework.

SIMPLE PLAN

The band we had been waiting for was up next, the one and only Simple Plan and to say everyone was excited was an understatement. Simple Plan delivered their best hits and they kicked off their set with "I'd do Anything, Shut Up and Jump". Pierre Bouvier's showmanship was of the highest quality as he interacted with the crowd as soon as he hit the stage. "Addicted and Welcome To My Life" were up next and these songs captivated the audience with the clarity of the lyrics and how they reflected on life experiences.

Gatecreeper

GATECREEPER REVIEW

As Gatecreeper kicked off the set, the crowd moved forward and the mosh pit was ready to go. The band started their set with "Sweltering Madness" and the grinding riffs and vocalis by Chase H. Mason were roar and hoarse. The big beefy basslines rocked the house and we were ready for their next songs. Next up was "Puncture Wounds and Ruthless" and these songs were crushingly heavy and dark with Speedy and intense thunderous notes.

Infectious Grooves

INFECTIOUS GROOVES REVIEW

Infectious Grooves continued with hits including: Punk It Up, Lock It In The Pocket, and Violent And Funky. The melodic, infectious, danceable grooves, and beats ripped through the mosh pit and the jazz fusion energy was dynamite. Jay Weinberg's drumming was heavy and fun. Dave Kushners thrashy guitar leads had a rapid-fire and an even blend of funk music which kicked ass. Mike Muir's attitude and sense of humour created a fun vibe when he was talking to the fans and he reminded us how much he loves Australia.

SKILLET

SKILLET REVIEW

Skillet continued their set with "Hero, Not Gonna Die and Anchor" This series of songs made for a powerful display of Skillet's classic rock inspired sound and showed their chemistry as a band. As Jen Ledger delivered Punchy and Snappy drum beats it showed you why they are amazing musicians.

DIRTY HONEY

DIRTY HONEY REVIEW

As Dirty Honey embarked on their way to Sydney they made a quick stop at Blues Fest In Byron Bay to show them what they are made of. We got to watch Dirty Honey "Marc LaBelle on vocals, John Notto on guitar, Justin Smolian on bass, and Jaydon Bean on drums kill it last night.

Pop Will Eat Itself

PWEI REVIEW

As a wave of nostalgia came through the crowd, Pop Will Eat Itself walked on stage to ear splitting screams and cheers from the audience. This band stands on the cutting edge of time, and we were excited to see them again. Adam got up on the keyboard stand and held his keyboard up for the crowd to see, and a roar came over the crowd. The keyboard said 'The Incredible P.W.E.I. vs. the Moral Majority' on the bottom and 'Dance of the Mad Bastards' on the side.
 

knot.jpg

KNOTFEST

We reach the final circle of hell- Violence. The pinnacle of destruction, the harbinger of chaos. Behind the curtain… PANTERA blast open the depths of hell. Furiously hypnotising the crowd in a thick smog of pure adrenaline. “A New Level” begets hell’s choir. The listeners with heavy ears and tired arms push past, widening the abyss into a swirling mass of screams and sweat, reducing to animalistic gnawing & thrashing against each other like a pack of hungry dogs. “5 Minutes Alone” gets everyone in the groove!

D.R.I_

D.R.I REVIEW

The lights dimmed and then D.R.I walked on stage, and everyone had brought their moshing shoes. As D.R.I. kicked off their set with The Application, the feedback bounced off the walls of the venue.

NOFX continued their set with Dinosaurs Will Die, Murder The Government, Bob, Stickin' in My Eye, Kids of the K-Hole, All Outta Angst, 72 Hookers, I Believe in Goddess, and Ronnie & Mags, and the Punk rock energy filled the room.

CANDLEBOX
REVIEW

As you looked into the crowd you could see the excitement on everyone’s face and they were ready for Candlebox. As the headliner walked on stage, they kicked off the set with Dont You, Blossom, Supernova and Best Friend. The dirty distorted guitar riffs and feedback bounced off the walls of the venue, and the grunge sound took you back to the 90'S. As Candlebox played Change, the reverb was prominent and it broke into a strong part during the choruses

Metal Church

METAL CHURCH
REVIEW

As Metal Church continued with Pick A God Prey, Congeratin, Burial At Sea, Psycho and Watch Children Play, we were getting hammered by wicked, thunderous riffs and Metal Church’s singer Marc Lopes performed with a balance of grit and melody that showed us he possesses a distinct personality of metal.

Largerfest

LARGERFEST
REVIEW

Unfortunately, due to the earlier issue of the building being evacuated, lagerstein were unable to perform their full set, which is a site to behold, but they did not leave the audience with nothing. They played loud and hard through their remaining songs: Dig, Bury, Drink, The Shooey Song, and they closed their set with a cover of an Australian classic Land Down Under. We were sad to see them leave but we know they will be back to entertain us with their full show, which is a must see!

Archspire

ARCHSPIRE REVIEW

As Archspire played Bleed the Future, Abandon the Linear and A Dark Horizontal it buried us under an avalanche of blast beats and technical extremity that flew at the fans at warp speed.

PUNK ROCK FACTORY REVIEW

Punk Rock Factory walked off stage with their instruments and the crowd cheered for more.

Mayhem silenced the crowds chants temporarily but nothing could put out the fire that had been lit beneath them. They continued to play 'My Death', 'Symbols' and 'Voces Ab Alts'.
