UK death metal legends Carcass returned to Australian shores in June to lay waste to Aussie audiences. Supported by Canberra’s Tortured, Lifemusicmedia.com recently published our full review and photo gallery from the show, which we can bring you here now. CLICK HERE or on the thumbnails to view the entire gallery and read the review below:

Since their formation in the mid 1980s, the UK’s Carcass has been at the forefront of the death metal movement. Even during the years of their break up in the mid-’90s through to their reformation in 2007, no other bands in the genre came close to matching the forward thinking, cutting edge metal they created on classic albums like Heartwork and Swansong.

So, it was no surprise that Sydney’s Metro Theatre should be near capacity for the band’s first tour here in over five years. Even Canberra’s Tortured played a punishing barrage of brutal death riffs to a significant crowd – although many were waiting patiently in the line up for the merch stand, with the line stretching out past the bar!

Feature Car: Robert Bisegna’s Mazda FD RX7


19 Jun

We gave you a peek at the front cover of issue 249 of Hot4s the other day and we can now bring you some samples of the full shoot we did on Robert Bisegna’s sexy Mazda FD RX7. The car was painted by the guys at 2SUS and the trim was done by Todd at Eastside Kustoms, with Robert and his brother handling a lot of the fibreglass work. With a car load of Option Audio gear, it’s a sweet street car. Be sure to read all about it in Hot4s this month.

The main shot on this page was entered into the 2014 AIPP Epson NSW Professional Photography Awards and scored an 83 for a Silver Award.

Feature Car: Mark Sullivan’s Ford Mustang Fastback


10 Jun

Our photo shoot on Mark Sullivan‘s awesome DIY Mustang Fastback ended up being two firsts for us: it was the first car we photographed using the light painting technique and it also ended up being our first international cover car! The June 2014 issue of Modified Mustangs & Fords hit the stands a short time ago in the USA with our rig shot of Mark’s Mustang taking pride and place on the front.

As an added bonus, the photo shoot also appears in the first issue of ‘Revhead Extreme Performance’ magazine, which is on Aussie newsstands now. So no one needs to miss out reading all about the car. Mark built the Mustang largely himself in his Tardis-like shed on the Central Coast of NSW, including the smart two-tone paint and extensive ‘blacked out’ anti-chrome look. Be sure to find a copy of MM&F or Revhead and read all about it.

We’re stoked to be able to bring you some samples from our photo shoot with Phil Mizzi’s insane 1954 Volkswagen Barndoor Single-Cab drag car, affectionately known as ‘Grover’. Powered by a 2.8L forged Autocraft stroker engine that’s been supercharged with a Harrop HVT2300 blower, this VW boasts more engineering than any Kombi you’re ever likely to see. You can read all about it in the latest issue of VW Magazine Australia (VWMA), which is on Aussie newsstands now. It’ll be coming out soon in the UK in Performance VW magazine.

Winning: Four Silver Awards at 2014 AIPP NSW State Competition


02 Jun

The 2014 AIPP Epson NSW Professional Photography Competition took place a couple of weeks ago in The Rocks, Sydney. Hosking Industries’ Ben Hosking entered six of his automotive images into the Commercial category of the competition – the first time he’s ever entered a photo competition. In the audience to watch the judging process, he watched as four of his six entered images were scored 80 or higher to receive Silver Awards (70-79 points equates to ‘professional standard’, 80-84 = Silver, 85-89 = Silver with Distinction etc). The other two images were in the high 70s.

This was enough to place Ben as one of two finalists in the Commercial Professional Photography category! He’ll now be entering the four Silver award images into the 2014 APPAs (Australian Professional Photography Awards) to see how they go on the national stage. Below are the four winning images.
