A fell rumour surrounded Beastwars 2016 release, ‘The Death of All Things’. Many who covered the release reported that the album might have been aptly named by the band - to signal their death. Not so fast. The kiwi sludgers are back from the brink and they’re as monstrous as ever. With long-player ‘IV’ breathing life into the band, little doubt remains that this quartet of doomers are deserving of a following that bands like Wo Fat, High on Fire, and Elder enjoy.
