Sat 1st July 2017 at 8:00 pm - 1:00 am


Heresiarch release their awaited full length album “Death Ordinance” through Cult US label Dark Descent. This will be one of the first opportunities acquire this album outside of the US/Canadian shows in June. Joined by Australia’s Black/Death marauders Destruktor with support from some of the heaviest bands from across New Zealand.

HERESIARCH – Bludgeoning Black/Death that beckons the coming Wolf-Age. Brandishing militant drums, relentless grinding guitars, pummelling bass and hostile oratory as a weapon of blunt force. Performing material off former releases as well as from Death Ordinance, this will be one of the few chances to see them perform in Wellington.


DESTRUKTOR (MELB) – Renowed for their visious bestial assault the world over, Destruktor have been at the forefront of Australian BlackDeath since their 1997 demo “The Holy Trinity Denied”. An always evolving manifestation of violence and malice, their latest album Opprobrium builds upon their legacy of blistering desecration.

After laying waste to audiences in 2011, Destruktor launch their second attack upon New Zealand shores.


EXALTATION (AKL) – New Zealand has established a reputation in the BlackDeath genre, EXALTATION are one of the newest bands set to build upon this legacy. Militant drumming, churning riffs and commanding vocals unite into a vortex of sheer malice. This will be their first Wellington appearance.


FARMING THE POPULATION – Wellington Brutal Death Metal comprising of unpredictable, heavy, dissonant riffs executed with relentless ferocity. Recently becoming a 5 piece, their live assault has been taken to new levels as can be seen in the below video:


VOICE OF THE BLACK PHARAOH (CHC) – 2 piece Black Metal from Christchurch, bleak, unpredictable irreverence with ascensions into violence.
