“One of metal’s best-kept secrets…”METAL HAMMER

Wellington heavy rock band Beastwars formed in 2008 and created a nationwide impact with their self titled debut album in 2011. This charted at number 15 on the Top 40 charts and was followed by Blood Becomes Fire (2013 - number 2 on Top 40 charts), The Death of All Things (2016 - number 5 on the charts) and their most recent album IV (2019 - number 1 on Top 40 charts). All 4 albums received extremely positive reviews, international media coverage and were finalists at the New Zealand music awards in the Best Rock category. Both the debut album and Blood Becomes Fire were finalists for the Taite Music Prize. Their most recent release Tyranny of Distance - an album of New Zealand covers featuring songs by Marlon Williams, Nadia Reid, The Gordons etc -  entered the Top 40 charts at number 4.  

In addition to this chart success the band has toured New Zealand and Australia countless times since 2011 playing sold out shows across both countries. They have earned international support slots with high profile acts of a similar genre such as Mastodon, Kyuss Lives, High on Fire, The Melvins and Red Fang and twice appeared at both Big Day Out and Homegrown.

"To describe Beastwars live show in any certain terms would be doing them an injustice, as it is an experience that needs to be lived out to fully appreciate it." TONE DEAF

"The level of power projected by Beastwars was unfathomable... something you’d expect from an encore-demanding stadium crowd... I can’t remember the last time I’ve seen a crowd lose their minds in such a manner." - BEAT MAGAZINE

“Beastwars melds hulking doom and sludge metal with earth-quaking noise rock […] Their live prowess is downright legendary south of the equator.” NOISEY

Obey the Riff, Long Live the Beast.
