Shihad Wiki

Shihad Wiki is the biggest resource of information on the internet for the NZ band Shihad. This website was started in March 2007 and has steadily grown into a monster of a site. This site features information on past concerts, their discography, tabs, history and a whole lot more of history revolving around the band.

If you would like to help out and get an account so you can help edit the site email signup AT ( (which is and you will be sorted out with an account and whatnot. Why do you need and account to edit? Isn't this a wiki? Well having people sign up is in hope to stop vandalism and spamming. If you have links, photos, set lists, info, etc drop them to submissions AT ( (which is and we can put them up here for all to share.

There is more that we would like to do to make this site better and there's a great Team making this happen. If you like the site and want to help out in a different way have a read of this.
