Main pseudonym for broken beats, with recordings on Fatcat Records and others. ----- 5) Chasm, or Chasm (nz), is an Experimental/Progressive Metal band from Christchurch, New Zealand. Beginning as a 2 piece experimental side-project in 2007, Chasm took full form during early 2009 with the addition of Andy taking the band and its sound much further than before with new atmospheres and compositional ideas. Shortly after Kaine joined, bringing his unique bass playing into the mix. Rehearsals were productive from early on, but the band still needed a vocalist to complete the line-up.
In late 2009 Steve joined the band on vocals, bringing power and aggression as well as melody and conceptually abstract yet thought provoking lyrics.
