These trio of teenagers from a tiny town in the small South Pacific nation of New Zealand have managed to capture the imaginations of people all over the world with their unique blend of thrash metal and commanding live performances. Many of the band's songs are even delivered in a language that is unknown to international audiences - New Zealand's native language, Te Reo Māori. Now, Alien Weaponry is ready to capitalize on that momentum with their complex, developed and highly political debut album, Tu, short for 'Tumatauenga,' the Māori god of war. The artwork includes the traditional moko kanohi (facial tattoos) of the Māori warrior. "They believe in their identity as a metal band, their use of Te Reo is impressive, there's really nothing else like this in the world at the moment," (Jeff Newton, NZ On Air).
