“Don’t let the disheveled looks deceive you. This 7″ is fresh out of the vault. 2 tracks that we love that didn’t make it on to our debut album have been re-recorded and pressed to fresh black vinyl by Holiday Records in Aotearoa, New Zealand. This will never be repressed.” adds Beastwars.

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.
