Since forming in 2011, Empire have been carving their place into the Christchurch music scene with a force and energy that is impossible to ignore. Having played shows throughout NZ with bands such as Dragonforce, 8 Foot Sativa, Tainted, Vanishing Point, The Rising Tide, Echolypse, Osmium, Just One Fix, and Bow Messiah, Empire have proven with every gig that they are a band who undoubtedly belong up there on stage with NZ’s best.
Blurring the lines between European melodic death metal and the new wave of American heavy metal, ANNIHILIST, tie this vortex together with a progressive style of songwriting. Live performances are a vital aspect to Annihilist, the overly charismatic singer Harry Pendock always turning heads at shows with his often theatrical behaviour, adding a much needed element of fun to what is all too often perceived as a serious genre.
Kaerulean formed in 2012 hailing from Brisbane Australia, taking influence from Melodic Death Metal, Black Metal, Progressive Metal and Orchestral Music. Since inception they have self-produced their works and strived to avoid mimicking conventions. Their intention is for the listener to drift into concept fueled journeys and tales of the unknown.
Fenrir speed thrash metal freaks!! Their latest album Loki’s Slaughter mutilates the finesse of Classical and Romantic counterpoints in the jaws of blistering Speed Metal to create an abominable blend of balanced harmony and catastrophic entropy. If you like the unrelenting pace and scale of early Blind Guardian, the brutal grace of early Ensiferum, or just the legacy of the 80s, Fenrir is worth a listen.
Wellington premier heavy metal alt rock band.
5 piece metal band spawned in Lower Hutt, Wellington… a hard hitting metal sound not to be missed.
