Lifemusicmedia.com recently published our photos and review of Periphery‘s gig at the Metro Theatre in Sydney on February 2, 2014. They were supported by Animals as Leaders. Below is our full review of the show, along with link to our gallery of 26 images on Flickr:

Even before Animals as Leaders take to the Metro stage, the venue is rapidly filling with excited, guitar-crazy punters. There are scores of Periphery shirts circulating and it’s almost impossible to find more than one of the same design – a testament to the band’s proactive approach to merchandise and self promotion.

Despite this, it’s clear that just as many of the assembled throng are here to see Tosin Abasi and co. perform their unique brand of instrumental, 8-string rock fusion. For what is really an odd instrumental line-up (both Abasi and fellow guitarist Javier Reyes playing 8-string Ibanez guitars and drummer Matt Garstka), the mix rings true and clear and the band do an excellent job of recreating tracks from their first two albums – announcing to the eager crowd that they’ve just finished work on album number three. Watching Abasi and Reyes navigate their large fret boards with such ease and confidence definitely makes you feel insignificant – Reyes’ incredible, simultaneous bass line and melody counterpoint work was particularly breathtaking.

TheAUReview.com have just published my photos from the recent Periphery and TesseracT gig at the Annandale Hotel on Saturday, July 30, 2011 in Sydney, Australia. UK’s TesseracT and USA’s Periphery are two of the leading proponents of the new ‘djent’ scene/genre and played to a sold-out venue.

Live Review: Dillinger Escape Plan @ Metro – Fri May 21


27 May

Lifemusicmedia.com have just published my live review of the excellent Dillinger Escape Plan gig at the Metro Theatre in Sydney on Friday May 21, 2010.

From the very first bars, the band are a frenetic live experience. Singer Greg Puciato throws himself into the mosh during the first song; followed closely by guitarist Jeff Tuttle during the second. Dillinger Escape Plan’s live performance is just as chaotic and schizophrenic as their recorded efforts and it’s a joy to behold.
