Needless Cane

About Needless Cane:

Born of the ashes of a former project, frontman Needless and bassist Ruby went on to create the band Needless Cane. Surviving countless line-up changes with only N. Cane remaining as the constant member (Ruby was not to reunite with the band until mid-2012), the band quickly became the torch bearer for alternative music in its hometown of Timaru.

Following the reunion with former Omega drummer Emlyn James (The Grem), things took a new turn when Cane hooked up with bassist turned guitarist Morgandrogyny. Together the horrible trio would explore new territory in gothic industrial metal in their new hometown of Wellington, New Zealand.

Needless Cane has fulfilled a few goals since living in Wellington, with the release of the band’s latest EP ‘The Sun Did Not Shine’ also the amazing S&M filled surreal tea party music video that was ‘Hemlock Lemonade’ and a couple of tours.

The band has plans to get in the studio to work on their debut album and has hopes to venture outside of New Zealand and spread their Black Plague to international waters.

Reviews

‘It becomes so psychedelic that each viewer can quietly drift in the depths of his imagination, through stabbing guitars and technical sound, followed by a pair of rhythmic bass-drums raptures.Elovite – Sons of Metal

‘This seven track EP brings that heavy, yet melodic sound that conjures up instant dark imagery and blackness, before swiftly bringing a strong industrial sound that finishes off the last three tracks.’ Burned_By_My_Lighter – Music.net.nz

‘Hemlock Lemonade is the main track of the EP, featuring strong melody and a full sound with a powerful and catchy main-riff.’ Vince Clark – ALTearoa

‘Switch tea for absinthe and crazy hats for BDSM, kink and goth and that’s a bit of what you got here, not to mention the girls in nothing but glow in the dark paint.’ ASMITH – Music.net.nz

Black Alpine

About Black Alpine:

Black Alpine play old school rock ‘n’ roll. Loud & funky, and with an attitude and stage performance so rarely seen since the classic heavy metal era. Black Alpine is bringing back the balls to the rock scene and taking you along for a wild ride the way the bands used to do it.

With influences from funk, blues, thrash and classic metal, Black Alpine’s stage show is something to experience first hand; Dionize’s gravelly singing and self destructive energy, AK’s thrashing guitar fury, Banjo’s Killer bass lines, and Jimmy’s relentless rocking beats. Complete with theatrics and overall extreme energy every night.

This up and coming rifftastic rock outfit is ready to take the world by storm.

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?

Alien Weaponry

About Alien Weaponry:

ALIEN WEAPONRY is a three piece metal band whose style has been influenced by old school thrash and hardcore.

Members are: Lewis de Jong – Guitar/Vocals; Henry de Jong – Drums; Ethan Trembath – Bass.

AW was formed by brothers Henry and Lewis de Jong, who have been listening to bands like Metallica, Anthrax and Pantera since birth; and started jamming and writing songs before they learnt the alphabet. Current influences include Lamb Of God, Tryvium, Subtract and System of a Down, but the band has developed its own distinctive thrash metal sound, destined to endure into future centuries.

Not content to rely on the shock value of their extreme youth, the group understands the value of professionalism, and works crowds to a frenzy with their tight, thrashy energy and wild stage performances. Their plans for world domination include playing at Wacken in Germany and touring the big international metal festivals. They refuse to play covers, and have enough material to begin recording their first album later this year.
