What would you do for the person who literally saved your life? Especially if that person didn't know it or physically help in any way? Well, you do your absolute best to talk about the good in them and how they helped you through that rough patch, then dedicate your life to supporting each and everything they do moving forward. To some it may seem like a big ask, but when the person in question is Beartooth frontman Caleb Shomo, there's no limits to the level of gratitude Wall of Sound: Up Against The Wall host Browny has for the metalcore frontman, so he's put together this Special Episode of the podcast as a way to return the favour and introduce you to a man and band that could potentially save you too.Beartooth was conceived during Shomo's own deep, dark struggles where he battled his own demons for the majority of his teenage years and turned to heavy music as a therapeutic way to release his built up tension, anger and frustration. What started as a project for himself, quickly turned into the wrecking ball force of nature it is now where we're seeing the band grow rapidly and gain popularity across the world at an increasing rate.In July, we'll finally get to see the band playing their very first headline shows across Australia and you better believe we grilled the man and legend about what fans can expect as well as a look into the band's past and future.Also, we go way back through the band's early years with a dedicated episode featuring how they came to be what they are now, where Caleb, Kamron and Oshie first met (and how they consequently joined the band) + a few surprises along the way...#WoSUATW #Beartooth #CalebShomo #AttackAttack #CityLights #KamronBradbury #OshieBichar #ConnorDenis #ZachHuston #TaylorLumley #BrandonMullins #NickReed #CityLights #Metalcore #MelodicHardcore #HardcorePunk #PopPunk #SickEP #Disgusting #Aggressive #Disease #Podcast #MusicPodcast #Interview #WallOfSoundAU
Grab your vans, dickies and prepare to head back in time with Buddy Nielsen of Senses Fail on this week's episode of Wall of Sound: Up Against The Wall as the guys gear up for their triumphant return to Australia for the first time since 2013\. That's a long time between drinks for the post-hardcore band who have gone through a few lineup changes in the process but also released an incredible return to form album at the same time. Buddy chats all about that and reflects on the popularity the band had after their song 'Can't Be Saved' made it onto Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock back in the day.Podcast host Browny takes a look at the news surrounding WAAX who had their own shock lineup change during in the past week AND released a belter of a new song you have to hear.There's also New Music from The Beautiful Monument, We Burn Bridges, Of Mice & Men and Rammstein, throwbacks from The Used, Box Car Racer, Pierce The Veil, From First To Last and heaps more...#WoSUATW #SensesFail #BuddyNielsen #PostHardcore #GuitarHero #PierceTheVeil #WAAX #WeBurnBridges #TheBeautifulMonument #BoxCarRacer #FromFirstToLast #TheUsed #OfMiceAndMen #OMandM #Rammstein #Halestorm #Beartooth #Podcast #MusicPodcast #WallOfSoundAU

He also addresses why it's taken the band so long to get back here and what we can all expect from the setlist.Podcast host Browny has plenty to talk about too with the return of Angels & Airwaves and blink-182 both releasing new songs in the past fortnight (which did you prefer?) and details on Northlane's highly anticipated new album Alien.There's also New Music from BABYMETAL, Belle Haven, DRAFTDAY and Birds of Tokyo, throwbacks from Finch, PVRIS, Saosin and heaps more...#WoSUATW #Thrice #TeppeiTeranishi #PostHardcore #AlternativeRock #Saosin #Finch #blink182 #AngelsAndAirwaves #AvA #BirdsOfTokyo #DraftDay #PVRIS #Northlane #BelleHaven #BABYMETAL #SensesFail #Podcast #MusicPodcast #WallOfSoundAU
They've just landed in Australia for their All I See Is War Tour but we grabbed Sevendust frontman Lajon Witherspoon to chat all about the new album, if their Grammy Nomination has changed their lives in any way and we throw back to the moment in his life when he quit his job in a diva-esque moment to follow his dream to be a successful musician.Podcast host Browny also takes look at the new standalone single for Sabaton, some of the controversy surrounding Rammstein's new video for 'Deutschland' and The Damned Things new album High Crimes.There's also new music from Sum 41, New Years Day and Amon Amarth, throwbacks from Drowning Pool, Disturbed and Killswitch Engage + more!#WoSUATW #Sevendust #LajonWitherspoon #AllISeeIsWar #Rock #Metal #Sum41 #Rammstein #DrowingPool #Disturbed #Sabaton #NewyearsDay #AmonAmarth #KillswitchEngage #TheDamnedThings #Podcast #MusicPodcast #WallOfSoundAU #metalcore #NuMetal
It seems you all enjoyed the heavy episode we had a couple of weeks back so we're doing it all over again, this time with Whitechapel's Zach Householder who joins the podcast to chat about the band's exceptional new album The Valley. Despite being in the game for over a decade, it seems Zach, like most of us, is his own harhest critics and from time to time can get caught up in the opinions for others, especially when it comes to their music. He talks to Browny about the way he deals with criticisms (not that it's needed for their latest offering) and also how they went about creating such hard-hitting, emotionally brutal songs which were inspired by the real-life events of frontman Phil Bozeman. He also hints at when the band will be making their return down under after not touring here since 2014.There's also plenty of New Music to get you into a throwdown mood from Earth Caller, The Gloom In The Corner, Cursed Earth, Abnormality, Born of Osiris and Falling in Reverse, throwbacks from Emmure and Slipknot + heaps more!#WoSUATW #Whitechapel #ZachHouseholder #TheValley #Deathcore #DeathMetal #Metal #ChildrenOfBodom #EarthCaller #TheGloomInTheCorner #Abnormality #CursedEarth #Emmure #CoreyTaylor #Slipknot #FallingInReverse #Metalcore #BornOfOsiris #Sevendust #WallOFSoundAU #MusicPodcast #Podcast
You know when someone introduces you to a band and you instantly fall for them? You love their music, members, style and purpose and dedicate your life promoting them as much as you can! That's how we felt with I Prevail who burst onto the scene a few years back covering a Taylor Swift song, BUT, the difference between them and others who were doing it at the time was they had a vast array of heavy/melodic music behind them to not just be known for that cover.From there, they've escaped the comparisons and have set out on their own, dominating the world and this week we're chatting to guitarist Dylan Bowman all about their achievements (and struggles) so far. From selling out their ENTIRE Australian Debut Tour to almost losing their clean vocalist Brian Burkheiser to a pretty traumatic (pun intended) vocal injury, to now, on the eve of the release of their second studio album, we go into detail about everything they've faced along the way and how they'll never give up in their fight.Podcast host Browny also takes a look at the news surrounding Static-X's reforming and Memorial Tribute for Wayne Static, the former frontman and namesake of the band ahead of their Worldwide Anniversary Tour and new album Project Regeneration.Plus there's plenty of New Music to get through from Liberties, Red Handed Denial, Windwaker, The Beautiful Monument, The Last Martyr, Dealer, Jinjer and Bury Your Dead and more...#WoSUATW #IPrevail #DylanBowman #Trauma #BowDown #Metalcore #Liberties #TheWordAlive #RedHandedDenial #Windwaker #TheBeautifulMonument #TheAmityAffliction #AmityAffliction #TheLastLartyr #BuryYourDead #Dealer #Hardcore #StaticX #Jinjer #DevinTownsend #MusicPodcast #Podcast #WallOfSoundAU
There's a certain stigma surrounding the Death Metal/Core genre where some naysayers refuse to listen to it due to the sheer intensity of the music and bellowing screams being flung their  way, but once you can push past the barriers, you'll discover enlightenment through some of the heaviest riffs and blast beats on this planet and a band who are renown for infecting the masses with their brutal sounds is Boris The Blade, who unfortunately, have announced they're pulling the pin on the band after almost a decade together.Arguably up there with the great heavy acts from Australia, the guys have toured the globe and were even called upon to play at the New England Metal & Hardcore Festival, a dream frontman Sharpy The Blade never thought possible when he used to watch the DVDs of the show growing up. He joins podcast host Browny to chat all about the band's epic farewell tour, the reason why they're all heading in different directions and some of his fav memories from over the years. He also goes into detail about why they're kicking things off in Sunbury, a remote semi-rural town outside of Melbourne where the band was first conceived. We also take a look at the HUGE NEWS surrounding Slipknot which has seen OG member Chris Fehn being publically ousted from the group following allegations he was taking the band to court over pay disputes. Find out what was said ahead of their tour with Metallica later this year.There's also plenty of HEAVY AF new music to get through from Alpha Wolf, Whitechapel and HellYeah, throwbacks from Suicide Silence, Bring Me The Horizon, iwrestledabearonce, Gravemind and heaps more...#WoSUATW #BorisTheBlade #SharpyTheBlade #AustralianBands #DeathMetal #Deathcore #ThyArtIsMurder #Gravemind #MakeThemSuffer #Whitechapel #SuicideSilence #BringMeTheHorizon #BMTH #iwrestledabearonce #Hellyeah #VinniePaul #AlphaWolf #Slipknot #ChrisFehn #CoreyTaylor #DevilDriver #IPrevail #Podcast #MusicPodcast #WallOfSoundAU
When bands go through lineup changes it can mean one of two things, one of which is the band won't be the same as they used to be, the other is the flourish into a new entity and continue to dominate with the legion of fans they accumulated over the years and that's what we're predicting for Ocean Grove who debuted their latest member Twiggy this week, who replaces ex-frontman Luke Holmes and guitarist Jimmy Hall.A quick reshuffle of positions and roles within the band now sees the charismatic Dale Tanner ditching the bass in favour of fronting the now four piece and he's chatting with podcast host Browny all about it this week. The pair go over the transition and how they've adapted to losing two members, where they found Twiggy (who has been part of the OG family for a few years now) and their belter of a new song 'Ask for the Anthem' which, in a mind-blowing turn of events, actually made its debut over the speakers twice at UNIFY Gathering this year. You'll have to listen to find out when and try to remember if you were there when they played it.There's also plenty of heavy tunes to get you through your day including New Stuff for The Brave, Calibrium and Periphery, throwbacks from Linkin Park, Korn, Limp Bizkit, P.O.D., Void of Vision and more#WoSUATW #OceanGrove #DaleTanner #NuMetal #AskForTheAnthem #Twiggy #UNIFYGathering #TheBrave #UNFD #Skorched #LimpBizkit #KoRn #VoidOfVision #POD #LinkinPark #Periphery #Calibrium #ProgMetal #ProgRock #DearSeattle #Podcast #MusicPodcast #WallOfSoundAU
For a band with dance in their name, they kinda make it hard with their heavy-core sound don't they but it seems that fans are going mental over Dance Gavin Dance heading back to Australia for a tour and we had to grab Will Swan for a chat all about it on this week's episode of Wall of Sound: Up Against The Wall.Swanny (as we've dubbed him) discusses the band's new album Artifical Selection and their passionate motivation to constantly release album after album, in comparison to other bands who tend to tour the same one for a few years. The guys are also known for dabbling into the realm of cover songs and (in some cases) they make the originals better than they were so podcast host Browny hit Will up about the possibility of them recording an album of covers in future.Plus there are stacks of New Music to get through including a double shot from metalcore singer Lauren Babic, who not only fronts the new band Crazy 88 (with YouTube star Jarrod Alonge and As It Is frontman Patty Walters), but also her original band Red Handed Denial who are set to release their new album next month and we play the debut single from it.There's also new stuff from Windwaker, New Years Day, Being Jane Lane, Simple Creatures and Fallujah, throwbacks from Alexisonfire, Story Of The Year, Veil of Maya and The Beautiful Monument + heaps more...#WoSUATW #DanceGavinDance #PostHardcore #ProgMetal #WillSwan #Alexisonfire #RedHandedDenial #Crazy88 #LaurenBabic #Windwaker #StoryOfTheYear #SOTY #AmityAffliction #TheAmityAffliction #TAA #VeilOfMaya #Fallujah #Metalcore #NewYearsDay #DLAUS2019 #TheBeautifulMonument #BeingJaneLane #Punk #SimpleCreatures #MarkHoppus #PopRock #WallOfSound #MusicPodcast
Well, where do we even start with our next guest's band? Bring Me The Horizon have been tearing up stages across the globe for the better part of the past 15 years and in that time, their sound may have changed from the early deathcore roots, through to their metalcore and most recent stadium rock albums, but now, yet again, we are seeing a significant change for the band which seems them introducing EDM influenced sounds and pop rock vibes with their latest album amo. But what triggered the change? Why did they stray so far from their original sound and (as rumours suggest) was it all a challenge to see if they could crack the mainstream market?All those burning questions you've ALWAYS wanted to know about BMTH will finally be answered as drummer Mat Nicholls co-hosts our Wall of Sound: Up Against The Wall podcast this week and by everything we mean everything from their Grammy Nomination, Mat's opinions on genres being "pointless", frontman Oli Sykes' music video ideas and even if they'll be bringing their heavy song medley to Australia in April. There's even a discussion about the band's belter of a new song 'heavy metal' which is a piss-take, "fuck you" anthem for all the old fans who criticised their progression away from the heavier side of music. You do not want to miss this one.Podcast host Browny also takes a look at Lamb of God guitarist Mark Morton's new solo song with the late Chester Bennington and asks for your opinion about whether or not Wage War ripped off Architects' with their new song 'Low'.There's also plenty of new tunes from Seas of Conflict, Kill The Lights, The Last Martyr and Fever 333, throwbacks from A Day To Remember, Enter Shikari, While She Sleeps and heaps more…#WoSUATW #BringMeThrHorizon #BMTH #MatNicholls #amo #MANTRA #MarkMorton #ChesterBennington #SeasOfConflict #KillTheLights #WageWar #Metalcore #Architects #EnterShikari #WhileSheSleeps #Beartooth #ADayToRemember #ADTR #TheLastMartyr #IceNineKills #Fever333 #DavceGavinDance #MusicPodcast #Podcast #WallOfSoundAU
