A Comfortable Way to Rot hail from Nelson New Zealand.

A grindtastic death metal 5-piece. A state of the art group of dirty down tuners here to slurp the mooshy brains right out of your cranial sockets with a classic "less tech, more groove" approach to a tech-saturated genre. While heavy at its roots ACWTR is a band you can get down to, girls can dance to it. It's for your health and the health of your delicious cranial implements. Expect slamming grooves, and the feast of drop tuned open strings and Cripple Mr Onion bassist Daniel Hawkins bringing a twisted gyration of bass weirdness to back up the incoming slam.

Don't miss out. Your consciousness cut short as the brain is awkwardly removed. The face you make... priceless.


Straight out of Masterton singing about various narcotic habits and bringing some lovely polyrhythmic djoint-ness to a ceaseless machine gun of well-placed palm muting. Some would say they sound like Meshuggah but if you Inhale enough of what they’re passing to the left you’ll change your down tune very quickly. Having just released their album '10 Cones" Inhale are set to crank dates with us hard as.

Humanity is the problem, Destructatron is the permanent solution. Designed with all the spite for mankind its makers could muster the mechanical 5 sided beast cuts a savage path through the wrongs of man with some seriously heavy throwdown style djeath meat all. 8 strings tones that slice with TeamKill's lead foot Nate Walker breaking everything in front of him on that poor drumkit. Then to top it all off Alan Gregson straight out of USDM high school with vocals reminiscent of meat gargled in a grinder. Run. Now.

When it comes to death metal we like it meaty with plenty of slime. Our fellow Cephalians have lent us their deranged pummelings to the tune of your squished brain. Cephalopod are Palmerston's finest death metal 4-piece. A furious onslaught of well chosen warped motions from blasts to slams all headed by head Cephalist Lee Gregg-Schofield who caps of the fantastic musicianship with a vomitous cacophony of exhales.
Disorientating and delicious.

Here to bring the riffs. These Auckland sauce bags make a towering 3 piece when combined. Atmospheric one moment then brutal the next, simple but effective then utterly deranged. Expect a long and heavy path to the promised land of open notes. Heavier than heavy dual vocal assaults and an ocean of textures filled with deep sea mines. It's time to accept your fate. Get lost in the Helgorithms.
