Hello all ladies and djentleman I'm going to be reviewing my experience with this years soundwave so the title pretty much explains everything. So I arrive and walk through with my dad and get our bags checked and bum around the place until we catch the end of Crossfaith , they have a really strong live show with the mosh going crazy if there not massive in the next fewer years somethings really wrong. They were followed up by The Blackout  I watched all of they horrible set, it was pop music with a metal drummer and two dickheads singing, but I don't think there aiming for the metal crowd. Next my favorite thrash band Anthrax  Knowing most of their material properly helped but they were the fun-est band and I lost my shit when the bass solo to got the time came in hbang, the only reason they got a 9 instead of a 10 was they covered AC/DC's TNT, was shame since they have so much great material and they had a tribute to Dio, Dime and on franks bass there was a picture of Clifford. SSO's very own band Periphery  (Note I was the second half only) they can play the music but lacked chemistry with the crowd an was so fucking muddy I can't even..... It sounded like a fart through a boss HM. At this time I got hungry so I had some chips and a coke and watched some board saying that the band was postponed due to flooding. Saw the last song from Orange Goblin  the most metal band of they day. The song was red tide rising, I want to the mosh and got the song live with great band and a great crowd. Bummed around some more until While She Sleeps  came on, great show played all the hits. The singer got like half of the mosh to crowd surf to him to sing, shame there wasn't more people. of mice and men came on, so I left to see Slayer  there slayer you know, the same band except we only got half, I lost my circle pit virginity to rain in blood at that set. I gotten more hungry at this time and had a hot-dog was pretty rubbish and it was $9 what a ripoff. I bought a Pantera T-Shirt because of the Anthrax singing [-10] they didn't show up........FML.... I waited for 40 minutes to see Ghost  It was muddy not as bad as bulb and friends earlier that day but pretty bad I only heard the first song and left. After that disappointment I saw Vision of Disorder  (It's my review I can go over 10 if I wish) I mean wow they played some many songs of the first album, the bass, guitars, vocals, drums everything was great only like 4 people (including my self) were really getting in to it, shame because that band deserve to be so much bigger, they were only like 100 people, 100 PEOPLE!. If you went to soundwave and don't see them your a silly person. This brings us to Metallica  I was stuck with a bunch of people that like enter sandman not Metallica they played master of puppets as the second song so I was satisfied then but I stayed and they played that god awful ballad they do. they said it was robert's 10 year anniversary with the band, 10 years since he stopped slappen da bass, what a shame he was a hero of mine at one stage. Then I got a train to Moriset  was not bad nor good. I went to sleep for a bit then some people left an there was a spare 2 seats so I had a rest until my stop. That was my experience with my second soundwave, was it as good as the year before I can't remember Cheers for the read, Sam.
