1. Not to lose anymore legends under tragic circumstances.

2. Soundwave festival grounds to be logically organised instead of the mess they presented in 2010.

3. A full length release from Russian power metal band CATHARSIS. This year’s EP release, Иной, was brilliant.

4. Getting out of Australia to soak up some ‘kulcha’.


DISAPPOINTMENTS OF 2010

1. Missing the 2010 festival season in the Northern hemisphere.

2. What was MICHAEL KISKE thinking?!?!?

3. TARJA TURUNEN’s What Lies Beneath

4. The Myspace mess

BEST LIVE SHOWS OF 2010

1. Screamfest: EDGUY, SONATA ARCTICA, ENSIFERUM, VANISHING POINT, BLACK MAJESTY. What a way to start 2010!

2. TURISAS, The Factory, Sydney

3. ALESTORM, Gaelic Theatre, Sydney

4. STRYPER, The Metro Theatre, Sydney – Michael Sweet’s still got it!


HIGHLIGHT OF 2010

The plethora of excellent album releases. Compiling my top 20 this year was extremely difficult.
