Lamb Of God and Killer Be Killed collide in Sydney
Venue: The Metro Theatre, Sydney
We went to Sydney for the most metal Sidewave show of the year
In the days between Soundwave festivals, Australia has played host to some stellar Sidewave gigs showcasing the biggest and hottest bands in rock and metal. But none are more metal than tonight. At black-walled, dingy Metro in Sydney, the pitters and headbangers are gathering for a very special performance from Lamb Of God. A LoG gig in itself is going to be unrivalled chaos but they're not the only reason the Metro is packed to the rafters – Killer Be Killed are in the house.
KBK made their live debut just a few days previous in Melbourne and now they're supporting one of the biggest metal bands on the planet to over 1000 sweaty, drunken Aussies. The Metro is an odd venue with its large pit area and tiered standing section at the back, but it's ideal for the crushing heaviness this supergroup deliver with its pummelling PA and all encompassing darkness.
