Black Frog Management & Loaded Entertainment Presents:
DEPTHS w/ Winterborn, Lycanthrope, The Weight of Silence, OF BLACKEST OCEANS & Swamp City Goons as part of the 'Silence of the Wolves Tour'
19th November // Valhalla // 7:00pm // $10 // R18+

After a massive 12 months from both The Weight of Silence and Lycanthrope they have decided to team up and do a co tour of New Zealand.
The Weight of Silence have recently had a new vocalist join the fold and are currently touring Australia for the 3rd time this year, as they celebrate the release of their first single with their new frontman at the helm.
Lycanthrope by coincidence are also currently on their 3rd Australian tour for 2016. The band recently released their own stand alone single 'Bitter Resistance' after doing 2 tours earlier in the year for their EP 'Revival'.
Both bands have been working hard and touring even harder over the last 12 months to try and cement their name in the Australian heavy music scene. It is now time for each band to take that next step and head overseas and what better place to start than with New Zealand. Loaded Entertainment & Black Frog Management have teamed up to bring both bands across the water and be apart of 3 great shows featuring local kiwi headliners and killer support acts..

Bringing a modern, aggressive approach to death metal, Palmerston North based band, Depths, have been making their mark on the New Zealand heavy music scene since their inception. With their crushing sound and passionate, pulverizing live performance they instantly show you that they are an unnerving force to be reckoned with.

Winterborn are a metal trio, hailing from Wellington. Since their formation during the Winter of 2014 the band has performed all across the north island of New Zealand. Winterborn fuses thought provoking vocals, old school death/thrash riffs, classic metal/punk drumming, and technical bass lines to create a unique and massive sound of original metal.

This Australian 6 piece metalcore band is giant in size and giant in sound. From the moment the band unleash their aggressive onslaught of pent up rage on stage, this band is non stop. Lycanthrope pride themsleves on a high energy, good times live show that is guaranteed to make you move.

The Weight of Silence
These Aussie guys are a nice blended mix of deathcore and metalcore. With a pummeling rhythm section thats as tight as a band can get, these guys will hit you like a freight train. Recently recruiting a new vocalist The Weight Of Silence still manage to play like they've all been together for a lifetime.

Of Blackest Oceans is a progressive metalcore band based in Wellington, New Zealand. Since the bandís formation in 2008 they have successfully combined the best elements of progressive heavy music.

Danny Rascle & The Swamp City Goons
Since 1993, Danny Rascal has toured the world, torturing audiences with his music, most notoriously as the frontman for Ska/Punk Surfcore legends Monkey Puzzle, who have combined album sales of just over 300 000 units since 1996, and more recently as the instigator and lead singer of Unleash The Kraken. This year marks the 20th anniversary of Monkey Puzzle's first album and Danny has put together a new band, The Swamp City Goons, to play a handful of dates in celebration, covering a 'best of' selection of his music from the past 25 years, as well as a couple of new tracks, written especially for these shows. Please welcome to the stage, the man voted 'Most Likely To Be Your Real Dad'... Danny Rascal!"
