The legendary brotherly duo of MAX & IGGOR CAVALERA will be once again be looking to their past with an upcoming tour of Australia which kicks off this weekend.

The siblings, whose anniversary tour for Sepultura‘s “Roots“ sold out every show in Australia, will now be setting their sights on their earlier efforts, namely 1989’s “Beneath The Remains” and 1991’s “Arise“.

Nev Pearce caught up with Max Cavalera for the Everblack Podcast to talk about touring on the iconic albums, his bond with his br...

Download brings the most amazing people together. The sideshows, do it even better. Tonights trio of bands absolutely nailed what a Sunday night gig should feel and sound like. The Tivoli was packed out tonight with fans young and old to come see the greatest cover band of all time, Me First and The Gimme Gimmes.  

As the night kicks off, Victorian punk trio Von-Stache just nail every bit of their set. Short, fast, loud. That's exactly what you get with this band and before you know it, the...


Last year Australia held its first Download Festival in Melbourne which boasted headliners Korn and Limp Bizkit along with some of the biggest names in metal and rock from Australia and the world.
Due to its success it was announced to return in 2019 adding a Sydney date to further expand the global phenomenon.

Kicking off the day are Aussie prog metallers Voyager who are no strangers to big stages and have a massive following overseas. What a Wonderful Day seems like a fitting song to kick t...


Back in the early 1980’s metal was evolving.
Hardcore punk and the new wave of British heavy metal had co-mingled and given birth to a faster, angrier and darker beast, a new genre called ‘Thrash’. Along with bands like Metallica, Testament, Anthrax and Death Angel, Slayer pushed the genre to new extremes and, in so-doing, carved their notorious name into school books and park benches around the world.

But tonight is sadly one of the last times Australia will get to experience one of the worl...

Growing up, my parents always told me to keep my musical preferences open. While i was staunch on my opinion of not liking pop music when i was younger and focused mainly on the punk and metal scenes, as i've gotten older my musical appreciation as also grown. Tonight was a sensory overload of which i have only experienced a handful of times. 

When people think of Hanson, they typically think of 3 young boys that burst onto the music scene in the 90’s with a toe tapping tune in the form of ‘MMM...

'it's going to be a celebration of metal!' Nergal proclaims when discussing the line up for the Australian Download Festival

There aren’t many bigger names in metal than SLAYER and Australia is extremely lucky they get to experience one last time and to farewell this legendary band as they hit Download Festival and sideshows in Brisbane and Adelaide with fellow Big Four brothers ANTHRAX and the Polish Hammer of BEHEMOTH.

What can be said about SLAYER that already hasn’t been said? So far into their career and the final album ‘Repentless’ scored their highest ever Australian chart entry at #3 on the ARIA Chart. An in...

At this point, IN FLAMES are less of a band than they are a musical institution in the heavy music world. Since helping create Sweden's legendary “Gothenburg Sound” three decades ago to their current status as melodic metal monoliths, the act have constantly eschewed trends in order to forge their own musical path. This is evident on their 13th full-length I, The Mask, which sees them reuniting with multi Grammy-nominated producer Howard Benson (MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE, MOTÖRHEAD), who also produce...
