Thrash metal band Alien Weaponry “are one of the most exciting young metal bands in the world right now” according to Revolver Magazine in the USA. And they’re not the only ones who thinks so. Since they released their third single ‘Rū Ana te Whenua’ in mid 2017, fans, bloggers, the music industry and the media worldwide have raved about Alien Weaponry’s unique blend of thrash metal and their native language, Te Reo Māori. 
 In September 2017, they signed with German management company Das Maschine; and in February 2018 they announced a three-album deal with Austrian-based Napalm Records, which will see their music promoted and sold internationally. 
 They have featured in publications as diverse as UK-based Metal Hammer and i-D magazines to National Public Radio (NPR) and Revolver and The Atlantic in the USA. 
 In their home country, New Zealand, the three teenagers from the tiny town of Waipu in Northland recently won the prestigious APRA Maioha award for their song ‘Raupatu’ – a no punches pulled commentary on the 1863 act of parliament that allowed the colonial government to confiscate vast areas of land from the indigenous Māori people. 
 They will release their debut album, Tū (which already has hundreds of pre-sales via their fully funded Indiegogo campaign) on 1 June 2018; and a few weeks later they will hit the stages at the world’s biggest metal festivals – including Wacken Open Air, Metaldays, and Summerbreaze.
