Marduk: Since coming into being in 1990, Sweden’s Marduk have unleashed and unholy 13 albums of scathing extremity and the utmost brutality. Regarded as one of the pioneers of black metal, their barbaric, unhinged and unrelenting live assault must be witnessed, if not survived. New Zealand is in the firing line to receive an unadulterated blast of caustic black metal with Marduk performing the "Heaven Shall Burn" set for the occasion.

Gorguts: Canada’s leading progressive and influential extreme metal pioneers will return to wreak havoc again! Remaining impervious to trends during two decades of constant musical upheaval, while simultaneously expanding and redefining the language of death metal, Gorguts attained a new level of pestilent fury on their latest album, Colored Sands…and followed it up with their mind bending new EP that comprises of a single 30min song - Pleiades’ Dust
