Beltane

Bio

With the original line-up coming together in 1994, Beltane was one of the first bands in New Zealand to play Black Metal.

Beginning on the Summer Solstice of 2004 the band has recorded on every Solstice and Equinox since then. 2008's releases; Cape D'Evil, …Through Darker Seasons and Shadowplay Desolate highlight the development, quality & originality of the band. They have set a new standard for what a self-produced metal band can achieve in this domain. This has also been reflected in the ever increasing sales of these CDs both overseas & in New Zealand.

Beltane has long abandoned the status of being purely a Black Metal band. Bringing in elements of Industrial & Gothic styles has made the sound even more original, making for a band that actually has memorable & listenable songs both live & recorded.

All this despite not requiring the services of a live drummer for several years now. The current line-up consists of Xan on guitar/vocals & Baphgirl on bass guitar. However another thing that sets the band apart is frequent collaborations with various artists from drummers to opera singers on the recorded output.

Since locating to the Manawatu region at the beginning of 2007 the progress of Beltane has been rapid & continues to accelerate. Due to the quality & frequency of live shows the bands national following is steadily increasing.

Xan (guitar, vocals)
