about

In January 2018, 1 week after our singer Matt completed his chemotherapy treatment, we booked 10 days at Blue Barn studio to record a new album.

Although Matt was responding well to treatment, the band felt an urgent need to capture new songs as a thank you to all the fans that supported him and as a way of reconnecting with each other after our tumultuous breakup.

Matt's illness put the band and what we meant to each other in perspective.

We are feel honoured to have touched your lives with our music and are proud to present to you our new album "IV".

We hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we did making it. Obey the Riff, Long Live the Beast.

Find us on Facebook if you are interested in vinyl or merch.

about

BEASTWARS Wellington, New Zealand

New Zealand sludge metal four-piece Beastwars abide by one steadfast maxim: Obey the Riff. Described as "a mongrel mix of Kyuss, Neurosis, and the mighty Godflesh..." (NZ Herald) and playing "heavy tunes for heavy times" (ALARM), the Wellington-based sonic soothsayers utilize the chaos that engulfs our world as ammunition for their defiant howls into the abyss. ... more

Track Name: Omens
Empty House
At the foot of the hill
Gravel road
To a Holy Mountain

Pyramid in the hills
Red sky
See her omens come alive
See it enter your mind

Empty House
At the foot of the hill
Gravel road
To a Holy Mountain

Omens are red
In the middle of your mind
Roads of mist
Women of time
With hands pointed right
Straight to the sky
Omens are red
In the middle of your mind

Empty house
At the foot of the hill
Old gravel road
To the Holy Mountain

All omens are red
In the middle of your mind
Alive in the forest
Alive in the sky

Empty house
At the foot of the hill
Old gravel road
To a Holy Mountain
