Blindfolded and Led to the Woods are one of NZs finest metal exports and in 2016 saw them record their follow up album Modern Adoxography at Wellington’s Blue Barn Studios.

With a 2017 release pending the band is holding a fundraiser to help get the album out a little quicker and into everyone’s ears. Currently being mixed in Melbourne and with support slots lined up with King Parrot, Revocation and Psycroptic at Thrash, Blast and Grind Fest, 2017 promises to be a huge year for the band.

Technically…death metal.

Of Blackest Oceans is a progressive metalcore band based in Wellington, New Zealand. Since the band’s formation in 2008 they have successfully combined the best elements of progressive heavy music.

Last year OBO finally released their debut album, Identity, to a great deal of both local and international response. The heavy-hitting track ‘Monolith’ features in the Official Spotify ‘Got Djent?’ playlist, alongside huge names like Periphery, Veil of Maya and After the Burial.

In addition to the release of Identity, last year brought about a refreshed lineup and a national tour in support of the debut album.

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.

In a local music scene filled with metal, Empire have formed a solid reputation for themselves which sets them apart from the other bands, not only within Christchurch, but within New Zealand. This has earned them a devoted fan base, ensuring that every gig played has a strong audience attendance.

Having played shows throughout NZ with bands such as 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.
