The first announcement of bands features Bulletbelt, Hellbringer (Aus), Vargafrost and Neutralizer. 2 more bands to be announced.
Bulletbelt have been striking fear into Antipodean audiences for a decade. They’ve played countless shows across NZ and Australia, including with Midnight, Toxic Holocaust, Sepultura, Napalm Death, Carcass and many more international metal icons. They’ve also released two acclaimed full-length albums and a number of videos, and provided the rip-roaring title track to the much-celebrated heavy metal horror film Deathgasm.
Their soon to be released new album Nine Centuries continues BULLETBELT’s unstoppable momentum and further showcases the band’s rampant enthusiasm for metal’s aesthetic strengths.
