CANNIBAL CORPSE/HOUR OF PENANCE: Metro Theatre, Sydney, AUS, 11 Sep 2014
Concert Reviews

Words by Rahul Menon

One of the best and biggest death metal bands on the planet returned to Australian shores once again, bringing along with them one of the best younger death metal bands on the planet! The mighty Cannibal Corpse and Hour of Penance returned to Australia, and I was fortunate enough to witness this skull-crushing gig at The Metro Theatre in Sydney.

SEPULTURA: Grooves, Pits, and Smiles

Words by Rahul Menon

One of the biggest and most enduring names in the heavy metal world is Sepultura. Hailing from Brazil, this band has quite the history, and the best part is that they are still going strong. They're now back with their 13th studio album titled The Mediator Between Head and Hands Must Be The Heart and are set to tour Australia next month.

I had the opportunity to chat with guitarist Andreas Kisser about the the new album, band life, and the upcoming Australian tour.

TRIVIUM/IN FLAMES: 2014 Australian Tour Announced

Trivium Logo

With a swag of awards and sold out stadium tours across the globe left in their wake, TRIVIUM will be returning to Australia this November with very special guests IN FLAMES.

Widely tipped for greatness (some prophecies come true!) after their successful sophomore release, ‘Ascendancy’ in 2005, Kerrang! declared it “the most skull-peeling collection of pulverising metal grooves and fretboard annihilation you'll hear in a long time.” Four studio albums later, TRIVIUM are continuing their climb towards metal greatness with the release of their new album, ‘Vengeance Falls’. “Drawing together crunchy riffs, snarling vitriol, blistering shred-fests and stadium sized choruses it ticks all the boxes.” – Alternative Press

IN FLAMES has proven to be an unstoppable force in heavy music and have proven time and time again that they refuse to stand still. From the first opus in 1994 entitled ”Lunar Strain” to their new album ”Siren Charms”, the Swedish forefathers of Death Metal has risen to great heights in music history. They continue to take risks, push boundaries and challenge themselves and sees them “taking their game several steps forward, leaving both imitators and naysayers far behind.”

It’s rare when two heavyweights of metal tour together…and it’s now Australia’s turn to see TRIVIUM and IN FLAMES performing full headline sets encompassing their entire career.

Tickets on sale Thursday 18 September, 9am local time and with no extra shows planned you have been warned!

TORCHE: Shine on My Old Ways

Words by Rahul Menon

Torche are a young stoner/sludge band from Florida, USA, and are quickly gaining popularity. With just three albums under their belt, they have become crowd favourites at a lot of festivals and tours, and it is no surprise that they are already making their first visit to Australia next month. What makes them unique, at least to me, is that they have an extremely heavy sound but their music isn't necessarily violent or angry. In fact, whenever I listen to their latest album Harmonicraft (2012), I always have a big smile on my face.

I had the opportunity to have a quick chat with bassist Jonathan Nuñez, about the band, the upcoming album, and their first visit to Australia.

DECAPITATED: Chanting the Blood Mantra

Words by Rahul Menon

One of the top names in the death/groove metal scene is Decapitated. They have quite the history for a young band, have been through a lot in their career and are now back with their sixth album entitled Blood Mantra.

I had the opportunity to have a chat with guitarist Wacław 'Vogg' Kieltyka. We took a moment to learn how to say his name right, but eventually settled to just call him Vogg. His full name has quite the pronunciation!
