Tahuna Breaks have always encompassed a rich diversity of musical genres and styles. With seven members, the group’s live act is energetic, raw and large. It combines aspects of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s and is influenced by artists as varied as James Brown to Daft Punk. The band are well known for being unafraid to mix genres and have honed their sound on the live stage that encompasses funk, disco, soul, live electronics and roots.

Tainted

About Tainted:

Tainted make no bones about being one of NZ’s best live metal bands. Equipped with two outstanding albums (The Awakening 2006, Carved and Created 2008) under their belts, Tainted’s commitment and determination and overwhelming musical presence has earned them the title of one of New Zealand’s finest metal acts.

Tainted have been leaving cities throughout New Zealand bruised, battered and thirsty for more of their dynamic and yet undoubtedly brutal sound. With radio play on The Rock, and Triple J (Aus) and their video receiving airplay on C4, Juice TV, Tainted are well on their way to becoming a historical name in New Zealand Metal History.

The Christchurch metal band’s initial formation was in 2001, but we didn’t see them play their first show until 2005, the band opting to record demos first and secure the right lineup. The current lineup includes members Slim, Mo, Linly, Liam and Tim, who have all committed themselves to making a name in NZ metal.

With international endorsements from Jackson® Guitars USA (a New Zealand first) and Shure Wireless, Tainted has also opened for Metallica, Iron Maiden and played Southern Amp twice (The South Island’s Biggest Multi-Stage Outdoor Music Festival), in addition to playing the Auckland Big Day Out 2010 and many international supports and New Zealand tours – with the likes of Trivium, Whitechapel, Unearth, Lord, The Black Dahlia Murder, Arch Enemy, Chimaira, Fear Factory, Blindspott, Parkway Drive, The Sword, Misery Signals, Psycroptic, The Berzerker, and Krisiun.

Team Kill

About Team Kill:

After stepping up to the limelight as headline act for last year’s inaugural “Rooster’s Roadshow”, the indomitable TEAM KILL are back, teaming up with Caveman Events to put together an 8 date tour, reinforcing their reputation as the hardest working metal band in the country!

Hamilton based TEAM KILL is comprised of brothers Rob (Chuck) and Nate (the Butcher) Walker, on guitar and drums respectively. These 2 powerhouse musicians form the brutal core of the band, and helped create the band back in 2011, along with Phil Smathers, whose rumbling bass rhythms combine to provide a solid platform for the incredibly talented Jake Booth to add face melting riffs and solo’s on top of. Jake and frontman Luke Holder (Brick) joined the band in 2013, and brought with them a whole new dynamic to the sound – the impressive vocal styles giving everything a more aggressive edge, and twin guitars enabling them to explore bigger soundscapes.

Collectively described as having ‘more grunt than a tractor pull’, TEAM KILL are definitely the new standard of NZ heavy metal.

Their 2015 tour covers the north island, and see’s the band venture into the South Island for the first time – playing at Rattle n’ Hum Bar in Nelson. This is in response to a fan-driven campaign from some loyal supporters in Nelson, who were determined to create enough interest to entice the band south. Their Facebook page rapidly gained a response, so much so that the band decided it was worth the trip down to play for them.

Having released their debut EP ‘Age of Disease’ in mid-2014, the band have been feverishly working on new material, much of which they will be debuting on the ‘A-Bomb A Nation’ tour. They have been booked back in to the studio to record the follow up EP straight after this tour.

Did we mention, they are the hardest working metal band in the country?

These Four Walls

About These Four Walls:

These Four Walls are a hard rock band originally formed in Auckland, New Zealand and now based on Queensland’s Gold Coast.

The band are perhaps best known for their live shows, which are typically loud, heavy and tight with uniquely powerful vocal performances from singer Steve Gibb. This reputation has earned the band support slots for several touring international bands including Disturbed, Nickelback and Trivium, as well as top Australian rock acts Karnivool and The Butterfly Effect.

And most impressively, they’ve achieved all of this as an unsigned, independent act. Their successes to date have been the result of hard work, a dedication to crafting great rock songs, and their impressive live performances.
