Alien Weaponry Drop Furious Debut Album 'Tū'

Friday 1st June, 2018 10:18AM

Northland heavy metal young guns Alien Weaponry have dropped their te reo-heavy debut album . The thirteen tracks feature meaty guitar tones and thundering double kicks underneath war cry vocals and clean choruses, invoking images of 2000s metal artists such as Slipknot and Machine Head. The Barny Bewick-designed cover art depicts Tūmatauenga, the Maori god of war, which album’s title refers to. Guitarist and vocalist Lew de Jong explained his thoughts behind the title…

“Quite a few of the songs on the album are about battles or conflict. So we wanted to acknowledge the influence of Tūmatauenga in our work. About half the songs are also in Te Reo Māori, but since the album is being released internationally, we wanted something that would be easy for people worldwide to say and remember.”

Stream the opus below and you can catch the trio in the flesh tomorrow evening at their release show at Auckland’s Galatos Ballroom. Head over here for more details...

'Tū' is out now via Napalm Records.
