|Few artists in rock history can carry off the single moniker, and carry it with gravitas.
SLASH is one of that rare breed.
Since emerging with Guns N’ Roses, SLASH has been one of the world’s most sought after guitarists. Michael Jackson, Ray Charles, Stevie Wonder, Quentin Tarantino and so many other fellow icons have sought his services in order to make the good sound great.
Critics and fans alike still debate the greatest rock riff of all time with “Sweet Child O’ Mine” consistently taking top honors. Time Magazine placed SLASH second only to Jimi Hendrix amongst the greatest guitarists of all time.
|Underground thrash-sludge messiahs HIGH ON FIRE have set a new standard in doom metal.
Boasting apocalyptic riffage and gravel-gargling vocals, their latest opus ‘Snakes for the Devil’ solidifies HIGH ON FIRE as one of the most important bands in metal today, Absolute Punk affirming, “…the band has burned the metal rulebook and forged a new archetype.” Equal parts molten metal and earthquake panic, HIGH ON FIRE’S outrageously loud and absolutely punishing live show is descending upon Brisbane and Melbourne this March.
With stage displays firmly rooted in chaos, an arsenal of releases to back it up, and fervent touring, TRASH TALK has continually astonished loyal fans and newcomers alike. Pushing onward and upward since inception, TRASH TALK has defined, refined, and re-defined themselves as a punk/hardcore juggernaut.
Intelligent and complicated songwriting structures drawing from an array of dizzying musical sources have set KYLESA apart from their sludge-metal peers. Rounded off with an onslaught of psychedelic undercurrents; and jarring, triple-team vocal interaction, KYLESA has truly earned a well-deserved place as the “dark psych-metal titans” (Spin) of the stoner metal community.
HIGH ON FIRE, TRASH TALK and KYLESA will unleash the doom on their Sidewaves this March.

DEVILDRIVER has always been a band on a three-pronged mission: Work hard, rock harder, and kick as many asses as possible in the process.
Since the arrival of their self-titled debut in 2003, DEVILDRIVER have made a massive impact on the metal scene with their monstrous grooves, brutal, haunting vocals and crushing live performances. Their brilliant new album ʻPray for Villainsʼ only further cements them amongst metals elite. “Frantic pace, unrelenting power and a whole shitload of attitude, Pray for Villains is a killer record…honestly, words cannot prepare you for this one.” – Metal Hammer. Prepare for the onslaught…DEVILDRIVER will be taking no prisoners!

BRING ME THE HORIZON are redefining modern metal as we know it.
Itʼs not often scene kids, screamo fans and metal-heads can agree on a band, but after their explosive rise in popularity, BRING ME THE HORIZON have cemented themselves as the dominant force in the scene. No where was this more evident than when they exploded on to the Australian charts debuting at No.1 with their latest album ‘There Is A Hell Believe Me I’ve Seen It, There Is A Heaven Let’s Keep It A Secret‘.
“For all its bluster, ʻThere Is A Hell…. is the sound of a remarkable band establishing themselves as one of the finest of their generation.” – Rock Sound
