  Karnivool, Regular John, Coerce @ The Tivoli, 25.11.2009
By Denis Semchenko

Having successfully escaped my Pearl Jam fan-invaded neighbourhood, by the time I get to The Tivoli openers Coerce have already finished. From a friend’s account, the UK combo played a solid set of angular prog-rock with At The Drive-In leanings, which would have by all means made for a decent listening experience for this writer. For the time being, though, Sydneysiders Regular John will do – and they do it with gusto, cranking up heady garage-rock riffs and pentatonic licks and flailing the ‘70s long hair. Some post-2002 Grinspoon echoes are heard throughout but the quartet’s overall feel is that of the ballsy vintage rock & roll, somewhat incongruous given the headliner’s complex, emotion-drenched oeuvre, yet fun nonetheless.

Whitley ‘Go Forth Find Mammoth Tour’ November 2009

whitley   Following on from his critically-lauded debut “The Submarine”, Whitley returns with stellar follow up, “Go Forth, Find Mammoth”. Written and produced by Whitley, and engineered in a ramshackle studio on the Victorian Coast, the new album pushes the talented songwriter to his limits.

This well-realised follow-up picks up where his debut left off in it’s warmth, beauty and intimacy, however it carries a much bolder aspiration. “Go Forth, Find Mammoth” is an engulfing journey filled with flourishes and triumphs. Multiple harmony vocals, strings, pump organ, pedal steel, horns

and even a hammer and a bedroom door make up this album’s truly rich and exciting sonic palette.

Opeth – Australian tour – November 2009

Opeth   In a metal world starved for integrity, intelligence and beauty, Opeth shine like a beacon through dark clouds. They are artistic visionaries and their transcendent live shows have gone down in music folklore.

Combining towering blasts of blackened death metal with the intricacy of 1970s prog rock and the more subtle, gentle beauty of folk, Opeth continue to create epic and iconic music; inventing and reinventing the rules as they go along.

No wonder the metal world stops whatever it’s doing and pauses with bated breath each time the band announce an album or tour. In just over a decade and across nine studio albums, they have become the standard bearer for modern metal.
