Machine Head’s latest offering Catharsis has copped a lot of bad press around its release. But I'm here to tell you that all the critics are wrong. Catharsis is a solid album and requires the recognition that it rightly deserves. You want the opinion of a Machine Head fan? You got it.

Hotter Than Hell. Yeah, that's one way to put it. Gone are the days of summer festivals, but a new breed is born and it’s rivals are going to have to bring more than their ‘A’ game to measure up to this. 


Perhaps its the unlikely location, or the humidity under a big top tent, but strolling into a festival at 2pm is somewhat foreign these days. The organisers of Hotter Than Hell have been busy bringing some of the nations greatest rock artists to us this year and the Redland Bay leg of this fes...

Since the announcement of Australia’s very first Download festival, everyone has been speculating which bands would hit up our very own state with sideshows. I for one had one on the wish list, Mastodon and Gojira. Low and behold the metal gods have praised us with that exact combo!

Mastodon and Gojira are without a doubt two of the biggest metal acts on Downloads line up. The two bands co-headlined a sideshow in Melbourne as part of the Soundwave tour back in 2012, putting on an epic show at t...
