Double vinyl LP pressing in gatefold jacket. In the past few years, no emerging metal band has shaken up the international metal scene like Alien Weaponry - featuring 21-year-old Henry de Jong (drums), 19-year-old Lewis de Jong (guitars, vocals) and 21-year-old new bassist Turanga Morgan-Edmonds. Since releasing their acclaimed Napalm Records debut Tu (2018), the New Zealanders' kinetic presence and unique sound - combining elements of thrash and groove metal with lyrics in the native indigenous language has attracted throngs of fans and media supporters across the globe. Having achieved past and present tours and festivals with the likes of Slayer, Black Label Society and Gojira, and being hailed the "future of metal" by esteemed magazine Metal Hammer (UK) and voted by Revolver Magazine (US) fans as "one of the bands most likely to break out in 2021", Alien Weaponry are poised to dominate with the sheer ruthlessness and untempered passion of their fervid sophomore release, Tangaroa (2021). The album coalesces Alien Weaponry's growing maturation with an undisturbed songwriting process, resulting in their most complex, inspired, honest and informed material yet. As with their 2018 single "Kai Tangata", which has amassed more than 10 million views on YouTube and claimed the number-one spot on SiriusXM Liquid Metal's "Devil's Dozen" for 13 consecutive weeks, much of Tangaroa is immersed in the historical stories and cultural heritage of the Maori people. In addition to lyrics written in the indigenous language, many tracks feature traditional instruments, called taonga puoro, providing the tracks their own warrior-like attitude.
