We're on Facebook! [Who isn't?] to hear the best Metal Radio NZ has to offer...

This week the LostMessiah has a listen to all things Thrash and some things Grind... with feature artists Legion Of The Damned and Cattle Decapitation. New stuff from Dust Bolt, Hellevate, Anaal Nathrakh, Pig Destroyer and Benighted. NZ Metal fills in the in-between spaces and the LostMessiah nearly makes it through the local gig guide... (nah, just kidding).
