Us down here in New Zealand are seriously into our metal. Go on myspace and check out some of these bands. None of them get a lot of worldwide attention, and are all poor as hell.

8 Foot Sativa - Melodic Death
Ulcerate - Death
Dawn of Azazel - Black
Sinate - Death/Thrash

Those are the big ones. Here are a couple of not so big acts.

Ornithologist - Wierd stuff, but some insane riffing nonetheless
Werefetus - My band. Put it in band promotion thread but no-one saw it. Desperate for some attention
ALL HAIL THE WEREFETUS

Meh. I'm New Zealander and even I admit that the metal scene is absolute balls here. Theres not much to brag about any music in N.Z, let alone any metal. Even our Tasman neighbors have produced far better metal than we ever have.

^Listen to this man. He know's his shit.

8 foot suck though. They're just an At The Gates clone, a bad one.


8 foot suck!? Sure, if you like, but they are ripping off no one. 8 foot have a really unique sound, they use way more off-key notes than At the Gates. Try listening to Breed the Pain (third album)

8 Foot is okay. I'm from NZ.

Real Groove is a ****ing mint shop. Im surprised at how many black metalheads there are over here.

at the gates clone? note patterns and melodies are quite different, they actually use tremolo picking on the riffs hammer on pull offs, unlike the often clone comparison drawn to slaughter of the soul, hmmm can i say..... "Zomg, they play guitar, they must have ripped off someone >:O! play guitar with a log! zomg now thats original and kewl"... i just heard 8 foot saliva =\ definately not that much of an ATG clone, sure you didnt specify what uh phase of atg they ripped so you might escape saying they might have some in common with WFIKTBD or TRITSIO but either way, they're not really an ATG clone, and i dont even like the band taht much its getting kinda annoying to hear "ATG CLONE ZOMG! THEY"RE SWEDISH" Or "ZOMG THEY USE PEDAL NOTES THEY MUST BE RIPPING OFF ATG" just like fags always saying "ZOMG HARMONY< IRON MAIDEN INVENTED HARMONY LYK ZOMG! MAIDEN WORSHIP ZOMG!" yeah... okay let me hit random notes... oh wait im copying Gorguts' Obscura? i didnt mean to, now stfu gawd, and no offense to obscura :P lol i mean hell compare dark angel and exodus, almost the same gay ****, ****ing open 6th string 16th notes and a bunch of power chords most of the time, wait thats what alot of other hrash band did too =\... anyway, my rants over and im going to sleep i didnt feel like making it go anywhere... lol

Yeah us English say it about the Welsh alot. I live in New Zealand. And the Metal scene is ****ing sick over here man. Saw: 8 Foot && Antagonist a couple months back live for the Posion Of Ages tour. Brutal

CrunchyMonkey where in NZ you from?

New Zealand hey? The southern hemisphere seems to be catching up; we got ourselves a nice scene down here in South Africa too, believe it or not :P

Go kiwis. We need to step up our music scene cuz here in New Zealand we got ****. If u live in New Zealand please start a decent band.
#27
Dawn of Azazel are average at best. Probably the only half decent NZ band posted here but. I'm sure there are some good underground bands there, but I couldn't give a shit enough to look for them. Best NZ band I know of going around at the moment is Diocletian. http://www.asphyxiaterecordings.com/audio/diocletian_masterenslaver.mp3

saw a recent live video of them though and thought it was a bit hilarious with a couple of them in hoodies (with the hoods pulled over). Must be Scribe fans? Dey can flow liek dis.

I think Creeping are Kiwi too aren't they? Semi decent black metal.

Can't see the point of comparing Aus to NZ bands but when in Aus we have/have had: Destroyer 666, Bestial Warlust, Sadistik Exekution, Damaged, Gospel of the Horns, Portal..... aaannndd need I go on.

I love the guitaring in the one song Non Servium has up.

Give it a listen, its from Whangarei.

8 Foot Sativa would be the best New Zealand band IMO. I don't like there newest album so much though. Old 8 Foot is the best IMO.

Aus > NZ metal wise.

Psycroptic, The Berzerker, The Amenta, Destroyer 666, Pathogen, Dyscord, LORD, Mytile Vey Lorth, Abyssic Hate, Five Star Prison Cell, Fuck... I'm Dead, etc.

Even the local scene in Brisbane kicks-arse.
Rishathra, People Die, Soul Scrape, Omit, Metallurgy, Minus Life, Garthum, Born From Ashes, Leviticus, Deprave, Empyrean, The Dead...etc.

Although we do have shitloads of sceneXcore shite.

Whoah...Where did that come from. Kiwi's love meat. I don't know where you get that vegan stuff from.

Dude. Try Beneath The Silence if you're into metalcore, but be warned - some of their older stuff is pretty death-influenced (no I'm not trying to say they're death, merely that they have some deathy riffs and stuff)
Young underground metal FTW. I heard they're only year 10s.
