Brand new video from Beastwars

Brand new video from Beastwars


...  a flying motorbike, viking ships, army tanks and dutch windmills also make an appearance in this brand new video from Wellington's Beastwars.

Director Simon Ward of SKYRANCH says "We approached the video as an animated comic, reminiscent of Heavy Metal magazine ... or something straight out of a Ralph Bakshi film. We were going for something quite otherworldly and weird ... with a buzzy fantasy time travel story."

"Dune" is the lead track from Blood Becomes Fire which was released in April. Click here for the clip: http://youtu.be/CIZQHR6-Ngg
After a highly successful Australian tour in May Beastwars have just announced more Australian shows this September and an appearance at Big Day Out Auckland alongside Pearl Jam and Ghost B.C.

Reviews for Blood Becomes Fire
"Blood Becomes Fire is imaginative, dynamic, and hits like a staggering punch to the solar plexus. 9/10." PopMatters.com 

"definitely worthy of all that hype. Crunchy riffs, growling vocal lines and huge songs that kick you right in the guts – Beastwars are something very exciting indeed."CVLTNation.com 

"Vital, chest-pounding, driven, addictive and powerful, Blood Becomes Fire is a genuinely excellent record. 4.5/5" Onemetal.com

"memorable, hooky songs and excellent riffs, they have proven they are worthy of the buzz".

"this is superbly conceived sludge metal through and through...propels the band into the top league of underground metal."
"If you miss the earlier heavier days of Mastodon and Baroness then let me introduce you to your favorite new band. It is a contender for one of the best albums of 2013."

"Blood Becomes Fire is one of 2013s best albums to date. I have no doubt that I’ll still be saying that come December."
No Clean Singing

"Blood Becomes Fire goes beyond being one of the best metal albums I’ve heard of late – it’s some of the most refreshing and honest music I’ve heard in some time."
The Bone Reader

"Blood Becomes Fire is an awesome slab of sludge that ultimately transcends genre boundaries and places Beastwars firmly on top of the heavy metal heap...it’s one of the all-round best metal albums I’ve heard so far in 2013."
That's How Kids Die

"Blood Becomes Fire is nasty, nasty, nasty. It’s nasty when it’s quiet and it’s nasty when it’s loud... you’re like, “Damn that’s nasty". (They have) upped their game even from 2011s self-titled debut and for anyone who heard that record, you know that’s saying something."
The Obelisk
