Returning in April 2016 with what will undoubtedly become one of this yearís
most revelatory releases, Beastwars are a band so heavy, and heavily admired by
fans in the Southern Hemisphere, they practically weigh the world in place and
stop it spinning wildly off its axis.
In 2011, Beastwars released their self-titled debut to critical acclaim and
in doing so transformed New Zealand's metal landscape. Reviewers celebrated the
albumís, "slow- burning furnace of basstrawling riffage," (The Sleeping Shaman)
as well as its distinctive blend of lysergic and premonitory metal that compared
the band to Kyuss, Neurosis and Godflesh, while hinting at influences as
distinctive as The Jesus Lizard, Black Sabbath, and in Hydeís Ďavant-gruntí,
Celtic Frost. Music that at its very core channels a colossal mood filtered to a
point where, "every wail, every riff, every bass thump and every cymbal crash
serves to remind you that this is enigmatic and darkened metal, straight from
the murky heart of the Antipodes.Ē (Sixnoises)
Two years on from their internationally acclaimed debut, Beastwars returned
in 2013 with Blood Becomes Fire which landed at #2 in the nationís music charts.
The album delivered ten songs retaining all the strength and psychedelic fire of
their first while presenting a powerful evolution in vision.
