BRISBANE

Photo Gallery and Live Review: Killer Be Killed - Soundwave Festival, Brisbane (28.02.15)

Despite being a massive fan of the sum of the parts in Killer Be Killed (aka The Dillinger Escape Plan's Greg Puciato, Soulfly's Max Cavalera, Mastodon's Troy Sanders and The Mars Volta's Dave Elitch) it was one of those things that kind of passed me by - thinking that it would be the standard side project-slash-supergroup that always tends to be more of a ego-boost than anything really resulting in anything worth listening to.

Photo Gallery and Live Review: Fucked Up - Soundwave Festival, Brisbane (28.02.15)

Fucked Up are one of those special experiences - one of those perfect festival bands, with the dedicated fanbase turning out wherever they pop up, and the absolutely amazing performance that will draw in any curious bystanders and immediately convert them.

Photo Gallery: Judas Priest + Dragonforce - Eatons Hill Hotel, Brisbane (26.02.15)

Dragonforce are an puzzle wrapped in an enigma. Playing the cheesiest, over-the-toppest metal that should be airbrushed onto the side of a van belonging to an overweight man in his mid-50s who retains his mullet despite balding two decades prior, they manage to move beyond the realm of parody into a whirlwind force of synchronized dips, two handed fret tapping, grins from both band members (Herman Li becomes the guitarist embodiment of the muppet Animal at times) and the headbangers in attendance, and that one song from Guitar Hero. Moving past the ridiculousness (and the one minor complaint that have each song may slightly overstay the welcome with eight songs fitting into the hour long set) Dragonforce still manage to put forward a hell of a show that's a rare craft of awe, tunes, and a refreshing lack of irony.

Judas Priest - after an incredible almost 50 years of performances, there's really not much to say about the band that hasn't been said. Despite the heavier riffs, there's a similar sense of humour and an extra step of theatricality to bill-mates Dragonforce - Rob Halford struggles on stage with a walking stick but proceeds to belt out all the lines without breaking a sweat in the packed Eatons Hill band room, casting it off by the second song and never resting. Glenn Tipton and Richie Faulkner come forward and thrash out in sync with huge grins, while bassist Ian Hill stands in front of huge LED displays of fire switching between stoic and ecstatic looks. With two massive encores including "You've Got Another Thing Coming" and Brisbane getting an especially special airing of "Painkiller", it's obvious that Judas Priest aren't on a victory lap, they have nothing to prove - this is one of the best bands playing their best work, and we're lucky to have been in the presence of legends.
