Teenage Thrash Metal Band Alien Weaponry Sign With Napalm Records

New Zealand's teenage thrash metal outfit Alien Weaponry have signed with Napalm Records. The band implement the Maori culture of their native home into their music and will release their new effort via Napalm in mid-2018. Meanwhile you can check out a past music video of Alien Weaponry for “Ru Ana Te Whenua“.

Comments the band of their new label home:

“Napalm is a great label for us to work with because their whakapapa [genealogy] includes a lot of thrash metal, which is where our roots are. So we fit within their whanau [family], but we’re also doing something different, introducing our own language and style. For these reasons, we think we will both grow and benefit from this relationship.

Being based in the tiny town of Waipu, New Zealand, we are pretty much as far away as you can get from the heavy metal centre of the world (which to us is Wacken, Germany), so this is a massive step for us towards establishing our career internationally.”
