Into Orbit - His Masters Voice With WRBM

Sorry this event has been and gone


  • Sat 16 Jul ’16, 8:00pm – 11:55pm


Ding Dong Lounge, 26 Wyndham St, Auckland CBD



Wellington Experimental Post-Metal duo Into Orbit join 'Devils Blues' act His Master's Voice at Auckland's Ding Dong Lounge, with support from White Rabbit Black Monkey (aka WRBM).

Into Orbit formed in 2013 in Wellington, New Zealand born from a collaboration between guitarist Paul Stewart and drummer Ian Moir. While describing their music as ‘experimental rock’, Into Orbit’s sound runs the gamut from post-rock and soundtrack, soundscape, to metal, prog, noise and drone.

They self-recorded and independently released their debut album in August 2014 to underground critical acclaim and since then have been consistently performing around New Zealand, including several headlining tours and an opening slot for German prog metal act The Ocean.

Two years later, the duo have completed writing, and started recording a second full length album, expected to be released late 2016.

Into Orbit recently released their a new single ‘Dark Matter’ along with a video clip, and released a vinyl issue of their 2014 debut album Caverns.

Formed late 2012, His Master's Voice are inspired by legends like “Buddy Guy, BB King and Black Sabbath”. Their sound evokes the Classic-Rock greats such as Deep Purple, the Doors and Led Zeppelin, mashed together with a sprinkling of Motown and icons such as the Beatles. Musically, the band identifies with a new wave of progressive rock/blues such as Graveyard, Blues Pills, Orchid and Heart Attack Alley.

His Master's Voice gigged constantly between 2013 and Summer 2015. The band played numerous high profile headline shows including featured appearances at Titirangi Blues Festival and Canzert fundraiser for Leukemia and Blood Cancer NZ. Debut album ‘Possession’ released Sept. 19th 2014.
