      Former AC/DC Bassist MARK EVANS' 'Dirty Deeds': Cover Image Unveiled - Aug. 16, 2011

The final cover image for the North American edition of former AC/DC bassist Mark Evans's new book, "Dirty Deeds: My Life Inside/Outside AC/DC", can be seen below. The first-ever book by a member of Bon Scott-era AC/DC is due in November 2011 from Bazillion Points books and is now available for pre-order at www.dirtydeedsbook.com.

Mark Evans recorded countless rock anthems with AC/DC on the groundbreaking releases "High Voltage", "TNT", "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap", "Let There Be Rock", and the '74 "Jailbreak" EP.

At nineteen years old in 1975, Mark Evans joined AC/DC, one of the hardest-working and loudest barroom bands in Australia. In the next few years AC/DC recorded a string of bestselling albums, and Mark found himself headlining world tours and living the life of a bona fide rock star. His memoir, "Dirty Deeds: My Life Inside/Outside of AC/DC", is the first bio written by a band insider during the early years, giving insight into the struggles and camaraderie that fueled the rise of hard rock's most successful group. His likeable stories capture the energy and essence of Malcolm Young, Angus Young, Phil Rudd, and the late Bon Scott. Rock and roll icons like George Harrison, Gene Simmons, Phil Lynott, Alice Cooper, Ronnie Wood, Ahmet Ertegun, and members of METALLICA feature as well.

"The aggressive attitude that AC/DC had towards Australian bands continued when we shifted overseas," ,b>Evans says. "The world's bigger bands became our new targets. Who the fuck did these pricks think they were? We saw a few of the so-called headline acts and straight away knew that we had nothing to fear."

ABC Sydney's "Breakfast With Adam Spencer" recently conducted an interview with Mark Evans. In this extended chat, which can be streamed using the audio player below, Mark shares memories of the band's early music videos, of original lead singer Bon Scott, and how it felt to be dropped from the band at its height.

AC/DC - Live at River Plate



After breaking an eight year drought with the release of Black Ice in 2008, rock ‘n’ roll legends AC/DC once again hit the road in support of the album. The ensuing tour (The Black Ice World Tour) was another mammoth undertaking for the veteran act, with the tour seeing the band play in front of more than five million fans in more than twenty-eight countries over a twenty month period. In celebration of the tour’s overwhelming success AC/DC have put together a new live D.V.D. Live at River Plate.

Filmed in Buenos Aires’ renowned River Plate Stadium over three nights in December 2009 in front of two hundred thousand fans, Live At River Plate is a defining testament to AC/DC’s continued status as the world’s biggest and hardest rock ‘n’ roll act.

Shot with thirty two high definition cameras, and directed by David Mallet (who’s worked extensively with AC/DC over the years via promotional video clips and on 1992’s live film Live at Donington and 1996’s No Bull), Live at River Plate is a visual masterpiece, with every aspect of the band’s huge stage show (the train is quite impressive, and Rosie seems to get bigger every year. And then of course there’s the bell, the lengthy ego ramp, the fireworks and the massive video screens, etc), their individual performance and the positively massive size of the Argentinean venue and those contained within captured in all its rocking glory.

Set list wise, Live at River Plate doesn’t boast any real genuine surprises, with many of the band’s classics (Back in Black, Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap, Thunderstruck, Hells Bells, Shoot to Thrill, You Shook Me All Night Long, T.N.T., Let There Be Rock, Highway to Hell and For Those About to Rock (We Salute You)) remaining true to the set list that AC/DC has delivered year in/year out. But that’s not to say that AC/DC are relying solely on their past, with tracks such as Rock ‘N’ Roll Train, Big Jack, Black Ice and War Machine from Black Ice injecting some fresh blood into proceedings to keep both the band and the fans on their toes.

Performance wise, the band are in top form. Angus Young may not be moving around with the speed he used to years ago, and Brian Johnson’s vocals struggle a little more to hit some of the higher notes in some songs, but its hard to knock the band’s ability to serve up rock ‘n’ roll in its purest form, and keep the audience moving (and you really have to see this D.V.D. to believe it. These Argentinean’s really do move as one! It’s an incredible sight to behold) from the first chord struck, right through to the last note.

In terms of bonuses, there’s the three minute animation sequence that opens the show (which cleverly mixes older AC/DC themes with newer ones) and the 25 minute documentary The Fan, The Roadie, The Guitar Tech & The Meat (which looks at the band’s stay in Argentina, their crew, the diehard fans and the band’s love of steak!).

AC/DC may be showing their age these days, but it certainly doesn’t affect their shows one bit. Brian Johnson pretty much sums it up when he says, ‘We don’t speak very good Spanish, but I think we speak rock ‘n’ roll pretty good!’ The crowd certainly agrees with the sentiment, and I do too.

Live at River Plate isn’t quite up to the task of robbing Live at Donington of its classic status, but it’s still one hell of a show. Without question, this release comes highly recommended to AC/DC diehards.

ALICE COOPER: Headline Theatre Performances Announced

Chugg Entertainment is thrilled to put all suspicions at bay, allay all fears, and quash all rumours, as today we confirm that come September, not only will the master of macabre, Alice Cooper, be here for his headline theatre performances in Sydney and Melbourne, but he will also be adding shows in Brisbane, Perth and a second night in Melbourne.

Since the cancellation earlier this month of the Soundwave Revolution festival tour, many of the affected artists have been rumoured as not making their way down to Australia this September.  But Alice is definitely coming.

Kicking off in New Zealand with a show at The Trusts Stadium in Auckland on Thursday 22nd September, the tour then hits Australia to kick off a run of dates starting in Brisbane on Saturday 24th September at the Brisbane Convention Centre, then down to Sydney for the Enmore Theatre show on Monday 26th September.

Melbourne-bound, Alice Cooper will then play two nights at the Palais Theatre; the already scheduled Thursday 29th September show, and the newly added Friday 30th September date.  Then it's west they head for the last show on the Australian run in Perth at Challenge Stadium on Sunday 2nd October.

Alice brings his No More Mr Nice Guy tour, which has played to audiences in North America, South America and Europe since May, and which has received rave reviews from both fans and media worldwide.

His highly anticipated return to Australia & New Zealand coincides with the release of his new album, Welcome 2 My Nightmare, out through Sony Music on Friday 23rd September.

The album, produced by longtime collaborator Bob Ezrin - who also produced the original Welcome To My Nightmare album in 1975 - features a host of special guests (including the three other surviving members of the original band, "Nightmare" guitarists Steve Hunter and Dick Wagner, Alice's touring band, Vince Gill, Rob Zombie, and, most shockingly, Ke$ha) as Alice revisits his legendary nightmares.

The original 'Nightmare' release is an all-time rock classic that spawned a worldwide theatrical tour and certified Alice Cooper as a visionary trailblazer whose influence persists today in rock, metal, pop, punk, theatre, television, film and much more.  More than 35 years later, Alice and Ezrin have resurrected the horror and humour for a new generation.

As if that weren't exciting enough, this run of trans-Tasman shows will also mark the introduction of a new member of Alice's touring band, fittingly enough in this pocket of the world.  Australia's own eminent guitar prodigy, Orianthi, debuts with Alice, joining guitarist Steve Hunter (who famously toured and recorded with Alice on Welcome To My Nightmare and Lou Reed with Rock 'n Roll Animal, among many others) and Tommy Henriksen, along with drummer Glenn Sobel and longtime bassist Chuck Garric.

In what is certain to be a sensory overloading spectacle, the man who first introduced horror imagery to rock 'n roll, and whose stagecraft and showmanship have permanently transformed the genre, will be blowing the roof off venues from coast to coast.  Do not miss out!

TRUTH CORRODED

"Knives Of The Betrayed", the new video from the Australian extreme thrash outfit TRUTH CORRODED, can be seen below. The clip is a culmination of tour footage from the band's April/May 2011 Australian and Asian tours with HYPNO5E.

"Knives Of The Betrayed" comes off TRUTH CORRODED's latest album, "Worship The Bled", which was made available on September 16 via Ultimhate Records. The CD was recorded between July and September 2010 and was mixed and mastered byJonas Kjellgren of SCAR SYMMETRY at Black Lounge Studio in Avesta, Sweden. Drums on the album were laid down by Kevin Talley (DAATH, MISERY INDEX, CHIMAIRA), who "really added a great intensity to our new songs — offering his distinctive style, while also honing in on our sound and capturing the feel of our influences," according to bassist Greg Shaw. "It has taken the band to the next level, and built on the intensity of our last album. The continued involvement of Jonas has consolidated the sound, and aside from his great skill as an engineer, he has offered some awesome shred to the album's opening song, 'Knives Of The Betrayed'."

The "Worship The Bled" cover artwork was created by Björn Goosses of Killustrations, who has previously worked with such bands as DEW-SCENTED, ZYKLON, SODOM, NORTHER, ABORTED and ONE MAN ARMY AND THE UNDEAD QUARTET. Shaw stated, "Killustrations have created some incredible album covers, and we really felt that Björn could capture the imagery we were looking for. The artwork conveys the message behind the album title — how the worship of monotheistic religion, political and economic ideologies and the waging of war have bled modern civilization. We gave Killustrations the idea and that was the image created — it is confronting and communicates the title of the album."

"Worship The Bled" track listing:

01. Knives Of The Betrayed (feat. Jonas Kjellgren)
02. Hunt All Heroes
03. Pride Of Demise
04. Nothing Left Alive
05. The Great Waste Of Flesh
06. Scavengers
07. Dragged Beneath
08. Remnants
09. Tear Out The Eyes Of God
10. Summon Abyss

DESTRUCTION: 2011 Australian Tour Announced

AUSTRALIAN TOUR 2011

with special guests

MORTAL SIN
4ARM
 

Destruction are legendary in thrash circles, and the best news of all is that they are back. Not only with a new album, but thrash fans all over the country will be warming up their necks for some serious head-banging at the news that Destruction will be touring Australia this November. Joining them for the ride will be Australian thrash pioneers, Mortal Sin, and established Melbourne act, 4ARM.

For almost 30 years, the name Destruction has been almost synonymous with high energy thrash. The south German act has never veered from their ethos of never backing down from creating pure thrash. Now, the three-piece are back with another thrash metal gem, Day Of Reckoning, and will be unleashing it upon Australian audiences. Released earlier this year, the album shows the band at its most fierce, brutal and thrashy.

Says vocalist Schmier of the album, “If you think Destruction is an old band, this album will prove you wrong! The speed and energy combined with a basic, fresh and aggressive production will make this record an outstanding classic of our long discography.”

Beginning way back in 1985, Mortal Sin, could probably be considered Australia’s first thrash metal band. Their first album, Mayhemic Destruction, saw them gain much attention at home and abroad, while a quiet period during the 1990’s saw them emerge again in 2004 for a tour with Anthrax and a European tour. Now in 2011, the band is set to release their newest epic, Psychology Of Death, on September 23.

Having just completed their third album, Submission For Liberty, 4ARM are chomping at the bit for its release. By joining this tour, fans are given the opportunity to experience some of the album’s ferocity and supercharged riffage in a live setting, before it’s 2012 release.

This triple header of thrash will be devastating metal fans around the country. So get on board and do not miss Destruction causing devastation and ruin in a town near you.

Cavalera Conspiracy Announce Australian Tour

Performing for the very first time in Australia, Cavalera Conspiracy are set to cause mayhem around the nation performing at all Big Day Out festivals and select east coast shows.

Cavalera Conspiracy was created following a decade long silence between Max and Iggor, the two brothers who formed the legendarily trailblazing heavy metal band Sepultura as teenagers together in 1984. Across six studio albums the Brazilian punishers perfected the art of metal (look no further than thrash classics like Beneath the Remains and Arise) while exploring the underbelly of third world political issues and broadening the genre's horizons with an exploration of indigenous culture, culminating with the landmark Roots album in 1996.

Max left Sepultura and formed Soulfly in the late 90’s, whose seven albums have garnered worldwide success and acclaim. Iggor stayed in Sepultura for a few more albums before splitting himself in January, 2006. A few months later the phone rang. It was Iggor calling Max to set aside the bullshit that had pursued them both in the press during the ten year period since they had last played together.

Less than two years later the metal world was turned upside by the debut album from Cavalera Conspiracy.

Max Cavalera is very forthright about the fact that Cavalera Conspiracy is a metal band. "Cavalera is super metal, it's supposed to be metal, it's not supposed to have anything else but metal and hardcore in it. The new album is even heavier and more aggressive than the first one." While that's all of course true and metal is known to be a very aggressive and sometimes negative genre, there's an overwhelming positivity surrounding the Cavalera story.

See Max and Iggor Cavalera unleash Cavalera Conspiracy in major cities and regional centre’s across the nation.

SYSTEM OF A DOWN


There is no other band around who can match the audacity, intensity and progressive nature of SYSTEM OF A DOWN.

With SYSTEM OF A DOWN operating at such astonishing creative and emotional heights they quite simply leave the rest of the herd scrabbling in the dust.

It was 2001’s ‘Toxicity’ that cemented their reputation. With every track tightly coiled, urgent and “cast in layers upon layers of aural intricacy, Toxicity charters new frontiers, yet it’s still grinding rock at its most deafening.”  – L.A Weekly

In 2005, against all odds, the completed Mezmerize/Hypnotize project was unleashed and it quickly became impossible to think of it as anything else than one epic piece of work. SYSTEM OF A DOWN delivered, and in doing so have given us one of the great rock double albums of all time….”rarely are albums this thrillingly original”. Q Mag

As the headliners for the 2012 Soundwave Festival, SYSTEM OF A DOWN will be bringing their frantic, frenetic and brutal live assault to Sydney and Melbourne for two headline sideshows only.

Tickets go on sale Thursday 1 December, 9am.

DEVIN TOWNSEND; one of the most admired and lauded figures in the metal world will be bringing his astonishingly deep and varied catalogue of mind-blowing music to Sidewaves in Sydney and Melbourne.

Devin Townsend has amazed, and occasionally baffled all comers in numerous incarnations spanning the extreme noise metal of Strapping Young Lad to the intricate melodies of Ocean Machine; Devin has had his hand in almost every genre of music, from industrial metal to progressive rock to ambient sounds.  All of these projects had one thing in common: GENIUS.

In his incarnation as DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT, ‘Hevy Devy’ makes his most grandiose musical statement with an extravagant conceptual quadrilogy showcasing his talents and diversity as a songwriter.  From the extreme metal to his more mellow work. ‘Ghost’, the final chapter of the quadrilogy is among the most celebrated creations of his career, a blissfully laid back opus. “Townsend has delivered on a level not previously imagined” – Metalinjection.net



Touted by Rolling Stones as “one of the 10 most important hard and heavy bands” acclaimed Swedish metal outfit MESHUGGAH have been leading the metal world with their ground-breaking approach to songwriting.

MESHUGGAH’S sixth studio album ‘Obzen’, a genre classic, sees them at their unrelenting and vicious best “having perfected their already unparalleled craftsmanship…it’s a phenomenal record” – Lords Of Metal

With a new album ‘Kooloos’ due out March 2012, the metal world waits in anticipation of what the metal giants have in store. In the meantime don’t miss your chance to witness “The most important band in metal”– Alternative press.

Don’t miss your chance to farewell one of metals’ greats!

Closing the curtain on a stellar career spanning two decades, doom metal legends CATHEDRAL announce their last ever headline shows as part of two exclusive sidewaves in Sydney and Melbourne, giving Australian fans an opportunity to be a part of metal history.

Twenty years, in which they’ve proved themselves to be a band who not only transcend metal, but all or any genre classifications one might attempt to restrict them within. Yet far beyond all expectations, their ninth album, ‘The Guessing Game’ is their boldest outing and is “a collection of timeless tracks that could easily span the decades” – Rock Sound

CATHEDRAL’S legacy will well and truly continue, with the band releasing their final studio album  ‘The Last Spire’ in 2012 an expression of gratitude to their cult following.

PARADISE LOST have pioneered gothic metal. Their desire to evolve and stay ahead of musical trends continues with their latest effort ‘Faith Divides Us Death Unites Us’  “a record of epic beauty with so many moments of genius” – Rock Sound.

Get ready for battle! One of the most exciting live bands in the world; Finland’s battle metal masters TURISAS, is once again setting course for Australia.

TURISAS’S blistering live shows are etched in metal folklore so don’t miss the opportunity to witness one of the “artists of the decade” – Terrorizer

From Grammy nominations to being hailed as the saviors of metal, MASTODON have never compromised in terms of vision or style and are shaping heavy metal in the 21st century.

MASTODON have never done anything the ‘conventional’ way and for over a decade they have masterminded a string of complex concept albums. Pushing the boundaries further, the bands 5th album ‘The Hunter’ is yet another universe bending, high-energy opus from a band that has changed the face of metal with Metal Hammer declaring, “infectiously brilliant heavy fucking metal” 5/5

Wowing audiences throughout the world with their ferocious live performances, MASTODON will be performing 2 headline sideshows as part of their Soundwave appearances. Be prepared for an experience set to leave you bruised, battered and longing for more…”Why Can’t all bands be this good” – Kerrang Magazine

It’s doubtful you’ve heard anything like GOJIRA, twisting and reimagining metal and delivering something wholly unique. The French behemoths have established themselves as a dominant force in metal since the release of their breakthrough album ‘From Mars To Sirius’.  “GOJIRA are simply too powerful and competent to ignore.” – Metal Observer

Taking the world by storm, Norway’s KVELERTAK are fast becoming one of the most talked about bands in metal.  Releasing their debut self titled album to critical acclaim with Norway’s rock authority Asbjørn Slettemark declaring KVELERTAK’S debut “the best Norwegian debut album of all time”.
