Lifemusicmedia.com published our image gallery and live review of the Korn and Rob Zombie double-header at Luna Park’s Big Top in Sydney on Feb 24, 2014 – supported by Mushroomhead. The show was a side show to the annual Soundwave Festival. CLICK HERE or on the thumbnails to check out our gallery of 38 images and read our review below:

What a freakin’ line up! Tonight’s Soundwave sideshow has sold out Luna Park’s Big Top and had punters lining up around the venue since 9am. It’s hardly surprising when you have Nu Metal legends Korn and comic super villain Rob Zombie headlining the same bill.

Opening tonight’s festivities are the masked crazies Mushroomhead. While their sound may not completely live up to their evil image, they offer an interesting three vocal assault, combining rap, screams and melodic vocals over a thickened bed of crushing riffs and soaring choruses. Tonight’s performance quickly whips up the early crowd, with all three singers launching into the crowd at one point.

This reviewer was on hand at the Hordern Pavilion many, many moons ago when Korn first toured this country. They band was a total revelation at the time, leading the way for an army of rip-off nu metal bands. The last time we saw them was on the ‘Life is Peachy’ tour, possibly also before some readers were out of nappies. So, it was with some excitement that we watched them stride onto the spacious Big Top stage to deafening applause and kick right into a career-spanning set that opened with an electric rendition of ‘Falling Away From Me’.

Karnivool returned to Sydney this August to promote the release of their new album, ‘Asymmetry’. Hosking Industries was there to shoot and review the gig for lifemusicmedia.com and you can find a gallery of images and a full live review below:

Sydney only recently enjoyed a year-ending gig from Perth’s mighty Karnivool – comfortably selling out the Metro and captivating all in attendance. But, with new album ‘Asymmetry’ fresh on the shelves, we’ve been blessed with another breathtaking performance by the prog-rock/metal wunderkinds and we don’t see anyone complaining.

First up on tonight’s short bill is Sydney five-piece Northlane. Bristling with confidence off the back of the attention their recently released second album, ‘Singularity’, has been enjoying, the band quickly take control of the growing audience with their own brand of metal. With hints of djent and metalcore combining with singer Adrian’s hardcore-style vocal, Northlane waste no time in whipping the crowd into a frenzy – generating rabid enthusiasm from what is a short set.
