For over a quarter of a century, Eyehategod have carried the torch for the metal culture of New Orleans, sharing stages with the likes of Pantera, Goatwhore and Crowbar. And in two and a half decades, they’ve helped define the NOLA (New Orleans, Louisiana) sound: downtuned, blues-inflected guitars awash in furious distortion, underpinning the demonic screams of Mike Williams over a thundering rhythm section.

It’s impossible to describe New Orleans sludge outfit Eyehategod without using the term “legendary.” – Exclaim

But that 26 years hasn’t been without its troubles. The band went on hiatus in the late 90s as its members focused on other projects – Corrosion of Conformity, Crowbar and Soilent Green – before reconvening for Confederacy of Ruined Lives in 2000 But everything got harder after that: Hurricane Katrina wrecked much of their hometown in 2005, and in the aftermath its membership fought through addiction, incarceration, probation and the death of founding drummer Joey LaCaze.

Eyehategod are sludge, and sludge is Eyehategod. There is no way around it. – Cvlt Nation

It’s been a long time between riffs, but Eyehategod emerged on the other side stronger and more determined than ever before. Their self-titled fifth album – the first in 14 years – is an exclamation mark on an already storied career, a statement of rebirth, catharsis, self-preservation and a sign of things to come. This November, Southern Discomfort makes its way to New Zealand.

This was a band built on a narrative about doing the opposite of what it thought people wanted: playing slow and messy music in a fast and virtuosic time, the 1980s speed-metal moment. Now, it’s hard to understand it any other way than an act of refined generosity. – New York Times

Nov 30 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm
Wicked Grounds - by Black Cat Prods. @ TAPAC (The Auckland Performing Arts Centre) | Auckland | New Zealand

Black Cat Productions presents an exhilarating tale told through contemporary circus arts. With a compelling cast of multidisciplinary kiwi cirque performers, Black Cat Productions’ high flying theatre show will have you on the edge of your seats.

This powerhouse cauldron of physical theatre follows Ava Quinne, a white witch who finds herself falling deep into a dark love story with a cunning, narcissistic Sorcerer, The Trickster, who she unwillingly summons during a Tarot reading gone wrong…

Witness quirky, bright eyed Ava’s journey through the endless Realms of the Universe as her sister, Kitty and her Coven of Witches try to protect her light that houses the essence of innocence. The true magic that lives inside her heart is what the Trickster needs to supercharge his poisonous lust for ultimate power and control of the Light.

In attempts to evade him, follow Ava and Kitty through the Realms as they encounter deities of the Old magic and the New. A supernatural bounty hunter is hot on their trail. A vessel of Destiny interferes with Fate, all leading to an epic show down between the light & the shadows.

Who prevails when the true Light dims in the dark? Can you feel the hungry creatures of the Abyss drawing closer?

Wolves In the Throne Room – Wgtn / Akld @ Valhalla
Dec 4 @ 8:00 pm – Dec 5 @ 11:00 pm
Wolves In the Throne Room - Wgtn / Akld @ Valhalla | Wellington | New Zealand

WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM re-imagine black metal as an ode to rain storms, wood smoke and the wild energies of the Pacific Northwest. Their first studio album, Diadem of 12 Stars (2006) was a genre-dissolving classic that created a melancholy and psychedelic Cascadian atmosphere.

Since that time, Wolves In The Throne Room have become one of the most potent and highly regarded bands in extreme music. The listener encounters crystalline metal riffs and ritualistic laments that sing of endless rain falling upon ancient cedars. Their music is a doorway into a mythic ethereal heathen landscape entered through music, magic and dreams.

Now with their latest offering in THRICE WOVEN, a portal into the dreamworld of Wolves in the Throne Room opens again with a glorious return to the blazing and furious Black Metal that they alone can create!

WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM performing at:
Dec 4 – Wellington, Valhalla
Dec 5 – Auckland, Whammy

Riffstock 3 @ The Club Tavern Christchurch
Dec 14 @ 8:00 pm – Dec 15 @ 1:00 am
Riffstock 3 @ The Club Tavern Christchurch | Christchurch | New Zealand

After two successful years, Riffstock is back to finish 2019 with a banger night full of with face melting riffs, psychedelic grooves and rock’n’roll. All night long! Come down and see Christchurch’s heavy hitters in a night of endless riff worship and rock’n’roll! Closing with Tuscoma, one of the heaviest bands out of Wellington, they are sure to deafen those ears!

Pieces Of Molly
The balls to the face group of musicians delivering a killer show without sacrificing their unashamedly heavy, riff- based sound. Their attraction is undeniable, their sound is one to be reckoned with.

EnFire
“THC-fuelled pandemonium”. Three piece heavy psych, mixing elements of classic stoner grooves, desert rock and heavy sludge/doom. EnFire has made a name for themselves in the local scene with crushing riffs and back breaking live performances.

Tuscoma
The New Zealand duo are Fargo’s woodchipper, mincing the corpses of post-hardcore and black metal into a fine red mist: Joe Wright’s deranged drumming and Kurt Williams’ frenetic guitars and demon-possessed vocal delivery serve as the raucous machine’s whirling blades of death.

Thunderwülf
Sludge Kung Foo from Christchurch, fresh out of retirement after a long hiatus. They’re ready to smash some riffs out and tear some walls down.

The Wendys
Dressed as lifeguards to save the musically drowned, THE WENDYS are the drunken threesome love child of Link Wray, Dick Dale and Buddy Holly. The Wendys brand of surf rock and garage punk has been making feet move and butts groove at venues and festivals around the country.

King Parrot NZ Tour – Wellington @ Third Eye Music NZ
Dec 15 @ 7:30 pm – Dec 16 @ 12:30 am
King Parrot NZ Tour - Wellington @ Third Eye Music NZ | Christchurch | New Zealand

Like a pitch fork to the skull King Parrot are ready to tear through your eyes, ears and brain once again with their 3rd full length release Ugly Produce. A step-up in every sense, the reckless Aussies have topped themselves with another savagely brutal LP; a ten-track feast of distinctively punishing and powerful anthems veined deeply in the extreme underground sound.

Never the band to shy away from their roots and the scene that gave birth to them, King Parrot are forever on a mission to take this depraved, insidious wrecking machine to audiences around the globe. Their unique over the top sound is ever prevalent and honed further on ‘Ugly Produce’ while remaining true to the fundamental ideals the band started with; Angst, Aggression, Absurdity and Antics.

After recording 2015’s Dead Set in the US, 2017 saw the band head back home to where it all began – recording their third full-length album with Blood Duster’s Jason PC, at the enigmatic Goatsound Studios. Ugly Produce reaches new heights in abrasive song-writing and serves up an odious pile of repulsive flavours you wouldn’t want to find on your local fruit and vegetable shelves. A repugnant harvest of the band’s gnarled and nasty fusion of grind, death metal, thrash, and punk rock having become more caustic than ever.

King Parrot have evolved into a fully-fledged touring and creative force barely stopping for a breath since their inception on the international metal scene in 2013. Tour after tour with the likes of Soulfly, Obituary, Down, Cattle Decapitation, Exodus, Superjoint, Voivod and their own headlining tours in Australia, the band are now hardened road warriors. King Parrot possess a rare and deep hunger for the raucous and off the wall live shows that they’ve become revered for. These outings fuel the creative drive within the band to compose only the most angst-driven and vile expressions to ensure maximum involvement from audiences that lap up every frantic beat, chainsaw riff and psychotic scream. Ugly Produce is a testament to the blood, sweat and tears poured into everything King Parrot does.

Coming to NZ for three shows in December

Christchurch 13th December – Club Tavern
Auckland 14th December – Whammy Bar
Wellington 15th December – Valhalla
