Thrash metal band Alien Weaponry “deserve to be the next big thing” according to Swedish music blogger Viktor Edstrom. And he’s not the only one 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 record deal with Austrian-based Napalm Records, which will see their music promoted and sold internationally.
