Heavy Metal Ninjas to Perform Rare Auckland Show

Heavy Metal Ninjas to Perform Rare Auckland Show Before European Festival Appearance

That clandestine, ten armed, instrumental beast , the Heavy Metal Ninjas will performone Auckland show only before leaving for the Euroblast metal festival in Cologne, Germany . An honor of epic proportions to be bestowed upon NZ’s finest metal maestros.

This will be a rare opportunity to see the brotherhood of string manglers and wranglers before their journey to the northern hemisphere, where they will join other like minded metallic visionaries such as Sikth, Animals As Leaders and Tesseract at Euroblast.

Celebrating also the release of ther NEW video for MelodyK, From the album "Interstellar Abduction".

The video was edited and directed by head Ninja Richie Allen on a secret mission training camp in the Moe Waka Valley, Port Waikato on a rare blue day in June this year. With the band operating as camera men AND performers, the challenge was to make it look like no one was actually missing from the shots while on camera duty, obviously they did a great job as the video has been shared over 11000 times since upload. Ninjas.

Yes this is a band whose fans speak louder than the PA system. A recent kickstarter ninja mission to help fund their main stage performance at Euroblast raised well over the targeted amount and the ninjas are about to take flight.

Don’t miss this very rare chance to be blown away by the Heavy Metal Ninjas with special guests, live at the KA, Saturday 27th September
