It's suddenly all on for international artists touring Aotearoa and the Valhalla Touring gang are leading the charge. They've announced the first overseas metal bands "to hit our shores in this new age": a two date monster starring Slovenian deathcore / metalcore unit Within Destruction with Pittsburgh's Signs of The Swarm. The metal hordes in Tāmaki Makaurau and Te Whanganui-a-Tara will be treated to eardrum-slamming, genre-exploding songs from Within Destruction's latest album Yōkai (smashing together elements of metal, hip hop, electronic and even Japanese traditional music), Signs of The Swarm's unrelentingly furious 2021 opus Absolvere and undoubtedly more. Toast the dawn of a new era of heavy metal tours in NZ and secure your spot in the pit...

Press release:

Aotearoa are you up for some quirky slams Within Destruction and Signs of The Swarm are the first metal bands to hit our shores in this new age!

Expanding from their slamming deathcore roots, Within Destruction have crafted one of the most diverse deathcore sounds in recent history. Their latest album, Yōkai, uses a unique combination of urban, Japanese, hip-hop and metal cultures along with countless moments of barbaric, slam-tinted brutality.

Above and beyond that, Within Destruction have created a sprawling, genre-spanning heavy sound that features something for everyone between spastic slams, lacerating blast-beats, ruthless bars and explosive beats. - Connor Welsh, New - Transcendence

Combining various styles such as Death Metal, Slam, and Hardcore, each song Signs Of The Swarm conjures is sure to maim and crush. With their catchy riffs, raunchy breakdowns, maniacal vocals and off-the-rails, and unapologetically heavy brand of sonic deviance, Signs Of The Swarm is quickly causing a stir within the underground... -
