Kiwi hardcore band Antagonist A.D have been added to Slipknot’s one-and-only New Zealand show at Vector Arena in Auckland on October 26.
Hailing from Auckland, Antagonist A.D have earned their stripes as road-hardened world travellers through relentless touring. And with four killer albums to their name they are undoubtedly New Zealand’s heavyweights of hardcore metal. This includes the band’s latest record, the critically-acclaimed Haunt Me As I Roam.
Antagonist A.D joins an incredible line-up that also includes American metal act Lamb of God, who were named ‘Best Live Band’ at the Metal Hammer Golden God Awards earlier this year.
Meanwhile, Slipknot continue to build massive anticipation of their first New Zealand headline tour since 2009.

Brazilian metallers Sepultura have fans bracing themselves for new album Machine Messiah. The new album is abrasive as it genius, it races along at break-neck speed and is the band's first studio album in four years since The Mediator Between Head And Hands Must Be The Heart, notably making it the longest gap between studio albums in their career.
In just 8 weeks Guns N' Roses will bring their arsenal of hits to New Zealand, and it's just been announced that Australian band Wolfmother will join the tour as special guests for both New Zealand stadium shows.
