Shepherds Reign will be headlining the night, bringing their unique blend of traditional Polynesian music and modern metal influences to the stage. Their live show is an unforgettable experience, combining primal beats, melodic textures, and powerful vocals. You'll feel the energy and passion of their music coursing through your veins.

Deathnir will also be rocking the stage with their love for Viking culture and 80s thrash metal. After ranking as semi-finalists in their first Battle of the Bands competition, they've since released two albums and toured both nationally and internationally. Get ready to headbang to their intense, hard-hitting music.

Forsaken Age is on a mission to reclaim heavy metal from the clutches of mainstream trends and pop idols. With their denim vests and leather jackets, they're bringing back the true spirit of metal, and they'll have you moshing and thrashing to their music in no time.

Black Gravel City is an innovative metal/rock trio from Auckland, delivering an intense auditory experience with their bone-crushing riffs and captivating melodies. Their debut release "Internal Fix" showcases their powerful and unique style, blending the raw aggression of metal with the emotive depth of rock, earning them a dedicated fanbase and a well-deserved reputation in the music world.

Teraset, a death metal ensemble from Auckland and Waikato, is known for their head-crushing performances that blend the raw intensity of Old School Death with modern grooves. Inspiration from Death Metal icons and British grindcore trailblazers result in Teraset's unique sound that enthralls fans of diverse metal subgenres.

With Senarius also on the lineup, Blitz Metal Fest promises to be an epic night of metal, mayhem, and unforgettable memories.
