I've written before about my fandom of the local Wellington stoner rock heroes, who release their sophomore LP 'Blood Becomes Fire' next month.
It looks like it's going to be another visual as well as aural treat, with the cover again being provided by Wellington artist Nick Keller. (Whose dayjob sees him working for Peter Jackson's Weta Studios).

I'm particularly excited by the theme on this release, as "the new album serves witness to the end of days, told through the eyes of a dying traveler from another time". That sounds like my kinda party.
What I wasn't expecting through the post in advance of the release was a note from their drummer Nato, with three Beastwars plectrums.
