Live Review | Robbie Williams ‘Swings Both Ways’ @ Brisbane Entertainment Centre – September 22, 2014

Review by Lauren Sherritt

It’s been six years since Robbie Williams last graced Brisbane’s stages, but the wait was well worth it for fans of the talented pop superstar.

On the back of the 2013 album Swings Both Ways, for the past few months Robbie Williams has been smashing out a world tour of the same name and September has seen Australia’s turn to get in on the swinging action. With shows already played in Perth and Sydney, Brisbane audiences were thrilled to pack out two shows this week at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre.

Live Review | The Rise Of Brotality Tour @ The Hi-Fi, Sydney – September 14, 2014

Review by Scott Singh
the ghost inside
Not many people can say they’ve spend a good chunk of their Sunday night listening to a diverse group of metal & hardcore acts. Luckily, the faithful who venture out to The Hi-Fi in Sydney don’t have that problem. Bands from three nations united to put on an impressive display of talent and vigor. It proved to be one of the best nights held at The Hi-Fi.

First up and unfortunately for the last time, Heights appeared on stage to let loose a relentless barrage of deep growls and prolonged chugging. The band gave off an aura of indifference, really not giving a damn for the stage, the setting or the venue. It was their last time to perform for their fans and they made sure the night would be owned by them and them alone.

When Cannibal Corpse last played Sydney two years ago at the Manning Bar, punters were left bruised, broken and scarred. If the line up for tonight’s show at the Metro is anything to go by, there’s sure to be a room full of battered corpses by the end of the night.

Album Review | FLYING COLORS – “Second Nature”

Review by Peter Coates
FCAlbumThe second album from progressive rock “supergroup / side-project” Flying Colors is released in Australia on October 3rd 2014 and perpetuates the initial basis for the band, formed in 2012, of seeking to combine virtuoso progressive rock musicians with a melodic pop singer / songwriter, and see what happens.

The musicians are all enormously experienced and influential heavyweights from the modern and progressive rock world, featuring Steve Morse (Deep Purple / Kansas / Dixie Dregs) on guitars, Neal Morse (Spock’s Beard / Transatlantic) on keyboards, Mike Portnoy (Dream Theater / Transatlantic / Adrenaline Mob / Winery Dogs) on drums, and Dave LaRue (Dixie Dregs / Satriani / Vai) on bass – with Casey McPherson (Alpha Rev) providing the songwriting and vocals.

Live Review | Devildriver + Whitechapel @ The Hi-Fi, Sydney – September 6, 2014

With a line waiting out front that stretched around the corner and up the street, there was no question tonight’s show with US metal bands Whitechapel and Devildriver was going to be a brutal one. While it’s unfortunate that most of those people would miss the opening act due to the HiFi’s super slow entry process (to the extent that the tour manager would have to delay Whitechapel’s start time until everyone was allowed in well past 9pm), Whitechapel and Devildriver no doubt made every single punter in the full room forget about any annoying delays.
