Ahh Deftones, the band that can’t be pinned - both musically and stylistically - return to Australia again to a string of fans both old and new. A diverse crowd of metal fans, punk girls, reformed old-skool emo kids and even a smattering of hipsters crammed the Roundhouse to witness everyone’s favourite not-quite-nu-metal, not-quite-alt-rock, not-quite-hardcore but every bit influential brand of post rock.
With just two months before Soundwave 2012 kicks off, the killer sidewaves have been announced and they don't disappoint. Marilyn Manson, Mastadon, Lamb Of God, Machine Head, Lostprophets and Enter Shikari.

Featuring a few of the cancelled Soundwave Revolution refugees and a slew of metal and rock bands (as well as one well-past-their-prime rap-rock band), the lineup for Soundwave 2012 has dropped and boy, it's a big one.
