Info


Traditionally, fucking angry harcore punk belongs for sure to the extreme music styles at OBSCENE EXTREME. That is why we have chosen an antipodean, new but absolutely rad quartet MASTER BLASTER for you. Started just in 2015 releasing their first demo „ You Suck“ followed by a couple of EP´s with „Doomsdays“ EP being an unbelievably intensive and great recording that tops everything else.  

MASTER BLASTER are also very active live band. They toured all around New Zealand, the whole Australian continent, the UK and Europe and played with the bands like Discharge, SNFU, English Dogs or GBH. This summer they will release a new EP titled „Pass Out“, will tour Europe and we are excited to welcome them on the boards of OEF 2017!!! We keep the banner of hardcore punk high!!!

Bio

Auckland New Zealand 4 piece hardcore punks Master Blaster formed in August 2015 and within a month, sticking to their Do or Die ethos, had recorded and released their demo titled "You Suck", supported SNFU and toured Australia (including part of Poison City Records Weekender Fest). Since their inception the band have played nonstop around New Zealand, hitting the road with Melbourne metal punks High Tension, Minneapolis thrashers In Defence, UK punk legends GBH, Byron Bay hardcore crew Shackles and embarked on an Australian and European tour in mid 2016 with Melbourne Fastcore Kings Hailgun that saw them play all around the continent finishing up in the UK with Discharge and English Dogs. 

On Friday 16th June 2017, Master Blaster will release their new EP "Pass Out" both digitally and on 7". The release follows on from 2016's Doomsdays 7", and their split 7" with Hailgun. The lead single from the new EP, "To All My Friends" is a song about how "we self medicate to escape shitty situations through drug and alcohol abuse, the title is a nod to Charles Bukowski." 

Master Blaster will then tour Europe and the U.K. off the back this new release, seeing them perform over 20 dates in June and July - including Off The Radar Festival in Germany, Obscene Extreme Festival in Czech Republic as well as dates in the U.K with Deviated Instinct and Seven Crowns. 

Master Blaster play fast, angry, direct music, their lyrics are honest and the pace relentless. They share their sound and energy with bands like Career Suicide, Black Flag and Obliterations. 

"The breakneck track shows a understandable distain for mainstream media mouthpieces that speak out their ass." - undertheradar.co.nz "

Master Blaster’s self-titled demo was released back in 2015, and it barrelled past leaving a sonic fucking boom in its wake the band’s recent(ish) Doomsday EP features the exact same blink-or-you’ll–miss-it punk rock, and everything on the EP is delivered via hard-hitting and savage salvos." - sixnoises.com
