Newcastle has always played host to international bands. It’s just that it has never been with the same kind of frequency of our neighbours south to Sydney. In fact, my very first proper concert experience was Pantera when they played the Newcastle Entertainment Centre on their Far Beyond Driven tour.
Still, it’s always exciting when a good international band gets booked into one of our remaining live venues.

Another resounding success for the Groovin The Moo machine as it landed in Bendigo on Saturday. The day started well with unusual warm weather and a bumper crowd all 22,000 of them confirming another sell out to this ever increasingly popular festival.

The Viking gods of progressive black metal return to herald the coming of Spring along Australia’s East Coast this August.
Fresh from delivering the outstandingly heavy powerhouse of an album ‘E’, ENSLAVED are bringing the brutal beauty of their doom-laden drums and sledgehammer guitars to deliver a glimpse of metal Valhalla in the blood pounding manner that only they can.
