What a freakin’ line up! Tonight’s Soundwave sideshow has sold out Luna Park’s Big Top and had punters lining up around the venue since 9am. It’s hardly surprising when you have Nu Metal legends Korn and comic super villain Rob Zombie headlining the same bill.
In a night guaranteed to make fans salivate, ROB ZOMBIE and KORN will take to the stage in Sydney and Melbourne with a feral, fiery and live ferocity that will be unmatchable!
A rock icon and auteur filmmaker with insight and unlimited vision, ROB ZOMBIE has continuously challenged audiences as he stretches the boundaries of music, film, and publishing. As a musician, ROB ZOMBIE has sold over fifteen million albums worldwide to date. Hellbilly Deluxe and Hellbilly Deluxe 2 were the albums that established Zombie as a solo artist after the breakup of multi-platinum group White Zombie. ROB ZOMBIE released his fifth solo album, Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor in April 2013 to world – wide critical acclaim! Continue reading Rob Zombie / Korn announce Sidewaves!!→
Grammy Award-winning multiplatinum hard rock innovators KORN have revealed that their 11th studio album, will be released on October 4 2013. Titled ‘The Paradigm Shift’, it marks the emotional return of much-revered co-founding guitarist Brian ‘Head’ Welch for his first album with Korn since 2003’s ‘Take a Look in the Mirror’. This record serves as the follow-up to the band’s critically acclaimed 2011 dubsteb-metal hybrid ‘The Path of Totality’, which entered the Top 10 in the US Billboard chart and was hailed by Revolver Magazine as their ‘Album Of The Year’.
‘The Paradigm Shift’ is Korn’s first time working with super-producer Don Gilmore, whose legacy also includes producing Linkin Park’s legendary ‘Hybrid Theory’ album. Gilmore recorded the album at Buck Owens’ studio in their original hometown Bakersfield, and at Los Angeles’ famed NRG Recording Studios. Korn initially announced Head’s return via a captivating clip on rollingstone.com, and went on to discuss the reunion in this in-depth interview with artistdirect.com, to much excitement from the band’s dedicated fan base and the music community.

Korn frontman Jonathan Davis discusses the band’s new album “The Path of Totality,” how the other members of the group responded to the recording process, the response to the new material at live shows, and more.
At least in this country, Filter has never attained the level of success that they deserve. Besides a couple of chart-bothering flirtations with tracks like ‘Hey Man, Nice Shot’ and ‘Take a Picture’ way back in the mid-to-late 1990s, Richard Patrick and company have travelled unfairly under the radar. Hopefully the Cleveland, Ohio group’s luck will change with the release of their fifth studio album, ‘The Trouble with Angels’.
For those not familiar with Richard Patrick’s talent, take note: he began his professional career with industrial genius Trent Reznor as a touring guitarist
It didn’t take Trent Reznor long to begin making music again after shutting the doors on Nine Inch Nails last year. In fact, news was already surfacing about his new project around the time of his marriage to Mariqueen Maandig in October of 2009. The newlyweds didn’t just join in holy matrimony – they joined in musical harmony as well, forming How to Destroy Angels (HTDA), together with programmer/producer Atticus Ross (Korn/NIN/Coheed and Cambria).
Trent is no stranger to forward-thinking when it comes to the release and promotion of his music. 2005’s ‘With Teeth’ was streamed on NIN’s
MySpace page before its release and 2007’s ‘Year Zero’ saw Reznor creating elaborate ‘alternate reality’ games that fell in line with the concept of the album and leaked several tracks into the world prior to the album’s release. ‘Ghosts I-IV’ and NIN’s final album ‘The Slip’ were both offered as free downloads on the band’s website as well as part of deluxe physical limited-edition packages with phenomenal success.
