Beastwars is an acclaimed New Zealand-based heavy-metal group.
Their 2011 self-titled debut album received positive reviews in the band's native country and invited musical comparisons to Soundgarden, Mastodon, and Unsane, amongst others. The album also gained recognition for Nick Keller's cover design, winning the 2011 New Zealand Music Award for Best Album Artwork or Packaging. The band received a nomination for best New Zealand Rock Album at the same ceremony, but ultimately lost out to Ignite. The album was also shortlisted for the 2012 Taite Music Prize.
The group has opened for Mastodon, High on Fire, Fu Manchu and Kyuss and in 2012 performed at the Auckland Big Day Out music festival alongside notable international acts such as Soundgarden, Röyksopp, and Kasabian. In 2011, a limited release custom-brewed beer was commissioned bearing the band's name.
