“Tonight’s all-ages gig meant it was an early start for punters hoping to check out all four bands playing The Big Top at Sydney’s Luna Park. While the eager crowd wrapped its way around the Luna Park grounds in serpentine fashion, patiently waiting for the doors to open, it seems as though most of the other press outlets missed the memo on playing times, with the photo pit looking rather barren for opening act, Buried in Verona.

Playing to a half-full venue, the Sydney sextet appeared a more polished, confident band than when this reviewer last caught them supporting Sweden’s Soilwork at the Manning Bar at the tail end of 2010.

I went along to the recent Soilwork concert at the Manning Bar in Sydney last Friday night one behalf of Lifemusicmedia.com. I was there to photograph the Swedish band’s gig with support band Buried in Verona.

Soilwork play a form of metal called melodic death metal and formed in Helsingborg in the 1990s. Their latest album, ‘The Panic Broadcast’ is a killer slab of metal and sees the band really return to form after one or two less impressive releases possibly a result of founding guitarist Peter Wichers’ absence.
