WTF! 8 foot sativa are "the best metal band on earth!" NO. 1 is where they should be!

8 DeathCall

Death/thrash metal

9 Ulcerate Ulcerate Ulcerate is a New Zealand-based technical death metal band formed by guitarist Michael Hoggard and drummer Jamie Saint Merat in 2000. Over the course of the band's career, Ulcerate has become more focused on generating darkness and atmosphere than on sheer technicality.

Original. Innovative. Accomplished. Amazing.

10 Legacy of Disorder

The Contenders

11 Devilskin

Best kiwi band ever, Jennie is up there with singers like Doro, Amy Lee and Lzzy Hale. Paul Martin is very talented and has been in some of the best N.Z bands. Happy they are doing so well.

12 Creeping
13 Fallen Order
14 Heavy Metal Ninjas

By a mile the most talented and technically influenced on this list. Soaring guitar lines and dark heavy technical rhythms. Should be top on this list they are extremely underrated not just in NZ, but in the Prog Metal world.

16 Intergracia
17 Dawn of Azazel
