Okay Adelaide, I've seen it all now. The OPETH gig was fully seated and you were made to stay in your seat? Pardon the language, but what the f*ck?
OPETH were excellent at being OPETH I suppose, quite a different gig though from the one I saw at the same venue on the Ghost Reveries tour in 2006.
Only a short time for photos and nowhere near the front as you can probably tell.
I'm still aghast at the seating though....

From a dark corner of HQ recently, ROSS THE BOSS played to a small yet very appreciative crowd, and proved himself to be the gentleman once again. I snagged some photos through the darkness.

THE NEW DEAD FEST happened on the weekend and it was nuts, as you'd expect. I managed to snag a few photos through the choking smoke.

DARK ANGEL stormed through Adelaide on Saturday night, and played a very dark Enigma Bar. See below for the photos I took. Best I could do given the circumstances.

I recently saw METAL CHURCH in Melbourne. Holy crap, what a gig. To see such a historic band in such a small venue was amazing. Here's some photos I took. Enjoy.

GRAHAM BONNET brought the latest lineup of ALCATRAZZ through Adelaide recently. I was there, as you would expect. Here's some photos. Bit smoky lately, dunno what's up with this disturbing trend.

After a massive day at Churches Of Steel Fest number 3 recently, I've uploaded some photos. You can check them out here. A huge day of local and interstate bands and a surprise from Sweden, Chainsaw, who just went off.
Thanks to all organisers and bands involved. Looking forward to next year's event already.
Living Colour played an almost 2 hour set at The Gov. the other night to a pretty packed house. Here are photos I took on the night.

Hey there. Been away for a few days earlier in the week travelling to Melbourne to see Kamelot shake the very foundations of Max Watts House of Music. The lighting wasn't all that flash, so these are black and white, but you get the idea. Killer performance as you'd expect. Hopefully an even bigger tour next time.
