Possibly the only good thing to come out of the full collapse of Soundwave (other than a massive serving of juicy gossip) is the news of Legion Festival. In case you missed the news, several acts from the lineup of the now defunct Soundwave 2016 decided to declare they would still play Australia anyway, even if it meant creating their own festival to play at. Added to its already intense lineup is Finnish Eurovision winners Lordi, local hardcore act Capture the Crown, supergroup Heard of Cows? (feat. members of Gyroscope and Karnivool) and Sydney metalcore crew Polaris. Funnily enough, Polaris has also just released their sophomore EP The Guilt and the Grief. There is currently a crowdfunding page set up for Legion Festival that you can find here, and you can listen to The Guilt and the Grief below.
