Saxon

Guests - The Sword

To say that SAXON are one of metal's most influential bands would be no understatement. The band who along with Iron Maiden and Motorhead begun the movement now known as The New Wave Of British Heavy Metal, have been cited by no lesser luminaries than Metallica and Slayer as a primary influence.

Being the trailblazing pioneers in any walk of life has its hazards and so it was that SAXON's over the top shows also inspired a young filmmaker by the name of Rob Reiner who made the world's first full-length mockumentary, This Is Spinal Tap!

One of the foundations of the metal revival of the past ten years, THE SWORD have released two flawless slabs of vintage heaviness, toured the world with Metallica, and were one of the first bands to lock into a whole new legion of fans through Guitar Hero. This summer, the band casts its gaze to the stars for 'Warp Riders', their third full-length and most ambitious effort to date.

Warp Riders is THE SWORD’s first concept album. It's also their most flat-out, supercharged, adrenaline-pumping work yet, a chrome-plated war machine that lauds over the blackened sky. “Warp Riders” is a monster of an album with monster melodies, monster hooks, and monster riffs… an album overflowing in classic metal perfection.” – Metal Underground

Nevermore

“American-bred heavy metal doesn't get any better than this.” – Eduardo Rivadavia (Allmusic.com)


Seattle’s Nevermore have ensnared and entertained metal minds the world over for nearly two decades. With a string of seven critically acclaimed studio albums; Nevermore have etched out their own legend into the metal mythos. For the first time in 5 years, they will bring their impassioned brand of uncompromising heavy metal to Australian audiences. This will be the first chance for Australia’s metal maniacs to hear material from Nevermore’s latest release, “The Obsidian Conspiracy”, live in concert.

Since the release of their first album in 1995, critics and fans have debated how to describe Nevermore. Often called “thrash” or “progressive”, these labels are more limitations rather than descriptions. Nevermore encompass the sensibilities of traditional metal with emphasis on melody, complexity, aggression and energy. Their lyrics are conceptual, intelligent and dramatic, delivered with peerless power and conviction by vocalist Warrel Dane. Complimenting Dane are the guitar histrionics of the technical but tasteful virtuoso, Jeff Loomis. Rounding the band out are the ferociously tight rhythm section of bassist Jim Sheppard and drummer Van Williams. With as much emphasis on song writing as they place on musicianship, Nevermore have built their global following through extensive touring (with bands as diverse as Disturbed and Dream Theater) and the undeniable merits of their unique brand of twisted technical metal.

Over the past 15 years, Nevermore’s discography has grown in intricacy, intensity and quality. Albums such as 1996’s “The Politics of Ecstasy”, 2000’s “Dead Heart In a Dead World” and 2005’s “The Godless Endeavor” have been heralded as modern metal classics by both fans and critics alike. The band’s latest studio effort, “The Obsidian Conspiracy”, produced by Soilwork’s Peter Wichers, has been similarly acclaimed. Peter Carnbro (ultimate-guitar.com) found the album to be “…an extremely solid effort, that manages to bring something new to the band’s sound without completely altering it.” Scott Alisoglu (Blabbermouth.com) describes the album as “…another mighty release from the Seattle stalwarts.”

Nevermore return in 2011 is sure to be a highlight whether you’re head banging in the pit, or standing back in awe of the musicianship. This is one metal-heads won’t dare miss.

Metal Health 2011

QUIET RIOT is a Hard Rock phenomenon! The first Heavy Metal band to top the USA pop charts at #1 on Billboard magazine. The quartet became an overnight sensation thanks to their monster smash album Metal Health (with sales exceeding 10 million) which spawned 2 hit singles that have become synonymous with heavy metal: "Cum On Feel the Noize" and "Metal Health".

WARRANT first came into the spotlight with their debut album Dirty Rotten Filthy Stinking Rich. The single "Heaven" reached #1 in Rolling Stone and #2 on the Billboard Hot 100. Next came the 2x Platinum album Cherry Pie and the gold album Dog Eat Dog. Warrant's albums have achieved sales of over 10 million.

LA GUNS got their start on Los Angeles’ Sunset Strip over 20 years ago. Formed in 1986 and signed with Polygram Records in 1987, they recorded their first album that summer, “L.A. Guns”, which sold over 750,000 copies and earned the band its first gold album award in 1988. Featuring original members Phil Lewis and Steve Riley, this authentic Hollywood rock band has been touring the US & Europe, and are continuing to tour the world for 2011.
