Shihad began as a bunch of high school kids in love with American speed metal and became New Zealand's most celebrated hard rock band. Their long career has not been without crises. Early triumphs were overshadowed by the drug-related death of their manager and mentor Gerald Dwyer, while their name - adapted from the Islamic word jihad - almost spelt the group's demise when the War On Terror broke out, just as the group were poised for a major launch in the USA. Yet they have prevailed - and all without a single membership change in 22 years.
