Silent Knight set to release Re Recorder debut album “The Masterplan”

Australian Power Metal’s Rising Force, Silent Knight are poised to release the re

recording of their 2013 debut album The Masterplan.


Citing reasons such as inexperience, over eagerness and a limited studio budget,

the original recording was not up to the standard of the bands follow up releases

(Power Metal Supreme 2014, Conquer & Command 2015 & The Angel Reborn

2017). The end result is brand new artwork, a slicker production and of course,

the addition of current vocalist Jesse Onur Oz who replaced original vocalist

Zoran Cunjack in 2014.

The release date for The Masterplan is Monday July 10 via digital outlets such as

Spotify, iTunes and Bandcamp, with a 2 CD version (coupled with sophomore

album Conquer & Command) to follow on July 27 to tie in with the bands debut

German tour including a performance at the 20th anniversary of Headbangers

Open Air Festival

Silent Knight will play a final send off show in Perth this coming Friday the 14th

of July at Amplifier Bar with Taberah (Tas) & Mason (Vic) who are both

releasing their new albums and Remission as support act


Plans are currently in the works for an Australian tour towards the end of 2017

Dream Theater Announce 2 special shows in Australia


For nearly three decades of continually redefining the parameters of hard rock, progressive heavy metal and surpassing critical expectations, devoted fans will be in their element as Dream Theater announce their two only Australian shows.

Having last toured here in 2014, Dream Theater have arguably become the prototypical progressive metal band. And, not by coincidence, they are also probably the most successful purveyors of the form. Dream Theater have a legion of fiercely diehard fans around the world and expect nothing less than a smart, fully immersive, experiential journey through otherworldly soundscapes from each and every live performance.

They have been nominated for a Grammy Award, have sold more than 12 million albums worldwide, earned countless accolades and shared stages with iconic bands Deep Purple, Iron Maiden, Yes and Emerson, Lake & Palmer. Dream Theater have also just been nominated for this year’s Progressive Music Awards for International Band/Artist of the Year.

Dream Theater are John Petrucci (guitar), John Myung (bass), James LaBrie (vocals), Jordan Rudess (keyboard) and Mike Mangini (drums).

For just under 30 years Dream Theater have basically been the hallmark of knowing how to play your instrument properly. And piss all over everyone else whilst you’re doing it.

Metal Rules 

Whenever a band of the magnitude of Dream Theater comes to town, the excitement is palpable… with fans itching to share in an experience that only takes place once every few years


Unbelievable live shows and a rabid fan base worldwide. Dream Theater continue

to be at the top of their game
