Planet of the Dead are a cosmic stoner/doom band from Wellington, New Zealand.
After forming in 2018 the band went from strength to strength in 2019, culminating with a support slot for legendary New Orleans noise merchants Eyehategod.
Their debut album, ‘Fear of a Dead Planet’, was released 9th February, 2020 and clocked up over 35,000 views on YouTube. The follow up album, 'Pilgrims' is due for release in early 2021.
“Fear Of A Dead Planet engulfs listeners in a maelstrom of massive-scale riffage and pounding rhythms, with Mark Mundell's growling vocals howling into the eerie cosmic beyond.” Under the Radar, 10th February, 2020
They draw inspiration from classic science fiction and horror, and push supermassive riffs to the outer limits. If you like your metal with an emphasis on the heavy, here’s your new favourite band.
