We’ve been running this publication of ours for just over three years and in that time we’ve managed to pick up a few “loyal readers” along the way who have joined the community on our social media pages and shared or commented on our articles to help let us know what they’re digging, what they’re hating and to be honest, just being all round legends. Our next guest contribution comes from our loyal reader Mark Tagg and this is what he had for our Wall of Sound 2017 Year in Review…

Best Gig You Saw in 2017
Every Time I Die & letlive. – January 16th @ Amplifier, Perth WA
Two of my favourite bands touring together after releasing probably their best albums! Every Time I Die stole the night which ended with me going into mosh retirement and Jordan (Buckley) in ER with a massive cut to his eyebrow. [Review & Gallery Here] 📷: Emanuel Rudnicki
Next Big Band to Watch in 2018?
“Code Orange – Made big waves this year so I can see them stepping up again in 2018 and really making a impact. Australia hasn’t felt the force of this band yet so hopefully they tour next year.”
What Are You Most Looking Forward to in 2018?
