00mee's Soundwave

I live in Perth, which is where the festival rusually finishes up, and I have to say, this was rthe best organized one yet. It's amazing rhow the rfestival has grown to become the huge juggernaut rit is today, over only a few years, but there was ronly one or two faults that bugged me the whole rday (mostly clashes). The best thing was each rstage bar one had been transformed to two stages, rwhich meant no waiting for bands. If I had any rcomplaint, it would be that the D barriers caused rmore problems than they solved, and I would rsuggest to get rid of them and find an alternative rbefore the next one comes round. Whilst this line-rup didn't exactly fully appeal to me (lack of rfavourite bands unlike other years), I still went ralong and had an absolutely stellar rday.
1The Black Dahlia Murder

Had never listened to them, but saw these guys upon arrival, and they were pretty fun. Vocalist is good entertainment.
2Dredg

Whilst not a massive Dredg fan, I waited out their set till they played something from 'El Cielo' - that being 'The Canyon Behind Her.' Whether it was the ill-reiceived 'Chuckles and Mr Squeezy,' or any other record, they were still pretty solid live, enjoyable at the least. lol'd at seeing Anthony Green to the side of the stage singing every word.
3lostprophets

were solid. Played some older stuff, which was cool.
4Four Years Strong

The perfect festival band. They're songs all call for movement, sing-a-longs and just having a good time. The crowd defiantly got moving, with choice cuts from Rise or Die trying garnering great reception.
5You Me at Six

Josh Franceschi and his crew were better than I expected, his voice really cutting through in a live setting. all round decent set.
6Tonight Alive

Caught a few songs, and you really cant help comparing them to Paramore. They only difference is whilst Paramore boasts a catalogue where songs standout in their own right, every tonight alive song sounds exactly the same. There is potential there, but I really just got bored after 3 songs.
7A Day To Remember

If you've seen one A Day To Remember show, you've seen them all. They're fun to see live, just not if have a few times before.
8Underoath

Due to seeing ADTR and the timetables stuffing up, I completely missed break even. Which was sad, due to it being the last time I could ever see them. I arrived instead at underoath, who played alot of songs from their 'They're Only Chasing Safety' days. Was a pretty awesome set, I don't really think they're missing Aaron Gillespie at all. They covered his bits easily and confidently. The band definantly have huge stage presence.
9Circa Survive

Circa Survive were my highlight of the day. Anthony Green is so animated, flailing about on stage, his voice pitch-perfect, using weird hand gestures and rubbing the mic with his beard, making bird noises, and apparently he wants to 'suck all our dicks.' I think he wants to come across a little different from the hordes of post-hardcore bands, and he did rightfully so. 'Get out' was killer.
10Thursday

Having only really listened to 'no devolucion' I still managed to see Thursday, and see them off on what's been said a brilliant career. They really went out on a limb on their last ever show, playing through a lot of older songs with huge amounts of energy, leaving the crowd chanting 'one more song' long after they left the stage.
11The Dillinger Escape Plan

Managed to catch the dilllinger escape plan, and it was the most intense show of the day. the crowd were going absolutely nuts, and the band reciprocrating that energy. Vocalist was jumping ontop of everything, first crowd surfing for half a song, then pulling out a table throwing it on the crowd and jumping on it. He proceeded to do a backflip off it, which was hilarious because he went straight to the ground (but it's no wonder, have you seen the size of him?).
12Letlive.

best frontman. Bouncers around the globe must hate him.
13Slipknot

half of their show is plainly theatrical, I really dont get what half of the dudes in slipknot actually play, but I guess the live shows are the massive appeal of the band. Crazy crowd, Crazy band. good set.
14System Of A Down

biggest let-down. Their getting on, and were pretty rigid for the entirety of their set. Being a massive system of a down fan when I was younger, I saw them purely for that nostalgic element, but they were pretty boring after a while.
15Angels and Airwaves.

managed to catch a few songs, but their live set is as boring as their music. yeah.
