Queens Of The Stone Age – Sidewaves announced!

  QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE have been one of the 21st century’s most engaging and ambitious rock groups. Led by Josh Homme, QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE have pursued an agenda of moody, sexy, high-energy rock that flaunts its danger and oddness, winning over fans and critics in the process.

Releasing their self-titled debut in 1998, QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE boasted a stripped-down approach to hard rock and metal that valued gnarly riffs over head-banging theatrics. In keeping with the band’s desert origins, the songs had a sun-baked, slightly eerie quality to them, and as the album’s sexually suggestive cover indicated, QOTSA had a cocky, libidinous streak to them.

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.
