THE AMITY AFFLICTION – ‘Heaven and Hell’, Brisbane Riverstage – 14 September 2019 Photographer: Josh Woning

Judging by the ratio of sitting real estate  v.s. standing, at The Amity Affliction’s Heaven and Hell festival, I’d say there’s a good chance we’ll see it back again next year, because like Frenzal said, ‘all we need is a punch in the face’, sonically that is.

As the ‘new festival kid on the block’, Heaven and Hell needed to deliver, and deliver it did, like an Uber Eats scooter on nitrous with bells on.

Review by Pete Coates – facebook.com/InsideEdgePhotography

Canadian artist Leeroy Stagger’s name might not ring too many bells with Australian music lovers, but hopefully that situation is about to change with the release of his latest album, Strange Path – released on Sept 13th through True North Records / MGM. Despite the lack of familiarity, Leeroy has so far released 11 albums, 2 EPs and has 17 years as a singer-songwriter under his belt which has seen him develop a reputation as a masterful lyricist and exciting performer, garnering a strong following in his homeland, while also making inroads into both the UK and US in recent years.

5 Music Biographies Every Rock Fan Should Read

Malcolm Young: The Man Who Made AC/DC
By: Jeff Apter
Available from Booktopia or eBay

Malcolm Young was a legend: the founder and the driving force of AC/DC, a man with what many have called ‘the greatest right hand in rock and roll’. That right hand provided the instantly recognisable riffs and muscle behind such timeless songs as ‘Highway to Hell’, ‘Back in Black’, ‘A Long Way to the Top’ and many others. Malcolm was instrumental in ensuring that AC/DC survived shifting musical trends and numerous in-house dramas to stand tall as the biggest rock band on the planet. Yet he was the most unpretentious man to ever strap on a Gretsch guitar.

Album Review : Jack J Hutchinson – Who Feeds The Wolf?

Review by Peter Coates – www.facebook.com/InsideEdgePhotography

From the opening riff of Justified you get the feeling that what is about to burst through the speakers could be something special. When the Hammond organ and the vocals kick in, the tingles start to run up your spine, and then the middle-eight break hits you like a sledgehammer before the first of many ripping solos puts the icing on the cake. There is so much depth and complexity in the backing vocal harmonies and the underlying melodies that the listener is pulled in deep, and is immersed in the layers.

Davisson Brothers Band at The Factory Theatre, Sydney – 25th July 2019 Photographer: Peter Coates

The return visit to Australia from this dynamic pair of West Virginian country-rock guitarists stemmed from their eye-opening appearance at CMC Rocks 2018, when the big festival crowds were blown away by the songs, the delivery, and the infectious stage-presence of Donnie and Chris, and their talented band members.
