Listing Detail Tabs
Debut album from local three-piece thrash metal group Alien Weaponry. Formed by brothers Lewis and Henry de Jong in 2010, their songwriting is complex, developed and highly political. Lewis and Henry are of Ngati Pikiao and Ngati Raukawa descent – they call themselves ‘Stealth Maori'. They attended a full immersion Kura Kaupapa Maori (Maori language school) until they were seven years old, where singing waiata and haka performances were a daily routine. Also ingrained in their early learning were stories of New Zealand history from a Maori perspective. In September 2017, Alien Weaponry won the prestigious APRA Maioha Award for their song ‘Raupatu' – a thrash metal commentary on the 1863 act of parliament that allowed the colonial government to confiscate vast areas of land from the indigenous Maori people. They were also nominated for Best Maori Artist at the 2017 VNZMAs. The combination of thrash metal with Maori history and language has proved popular. Their music video for Ru Ana Te Whenua has more than a million YouTube and Facebook views, spent 2 weeks at no. 1 on Spotify's NZ Viral chart, and hit no. 2 on the iTunes global metal chart (just behind Iron Maiden's ‘Run to the Hills').NZ delivery is usually within 1-2 business days using tracked courier.
