Manaia Toa

Born out of warehouse and underground raves in early 90s Wellington New Zealand, Manaia Toa began crude hardcore music production in 1994 with an Akai S-01, guitar distortion pedals and 4 track cassette mixer, releasing multiple tapes of doom laden Death Jungle and Hip Hop under various monikers (FleshHaite, End of Man, Life Means Nothing) throughout the 90's. Co-founded HEADWOUND RECORDINGZ in early 1998 and released various CDrs of similarly unrefined doom dance.
Brief three year sojourn in UK and Ireland in early 2000's formed a great Hip Hop collaboration (New Cross Soul) with Bassbin MC Wuzza, producing 2 vinyl eps and 1 full length CD album. Also an infamous "breakbeat grindcore" outfit Blood Box still as yet unchallenged by anything in metal or grind 16 years later!
Returning to the darkside in 2016 Manaia Toa brings more distorted doom and devastation....
