10. Blinded (Blinded, 2019)

“I love it when they do metal with maori language, it just makes them stand out with how they use it and i feel like it evokes their sound more. Alien Weaponry are badass nonetheless and I wish them all the success.”

9. Hypocrite (Tu, 2018)

“This album is a must for metal fans, its an awesome album start to finish. I love the tribal aspect and how many songs are sung in the native Maori language, really adds to the experience. In many ways, it reminds me of the album Roots by Sepultura which is one of my favorites from the 90’s. These guys are so young and talented, they are certainly a band to watch out for in the future.”

8. Te Ara (Tu, 2018)

“I have been seriously impressed with the talent of these young kids. They have passion, fire & energy. The album is a mix of tribal and English language. The music is sold heavy metal!”

6. Nobody Here (Tu, 2018)

“There is some unique riffage and everything meshes together very nicely. Eventhough I don’t understand what is being sung, the vocal delivery matches the music. Each song has its own epic vibe with breakdowns. Yet, all the songs fit together with the overall feel of the album.”

5. Holding My Breath (Tu, 2018)

“My ride is rolling with half a sound system right now because the raw energy these young men are bringing down wont just grind your brain, it will destroy speakers in the best way possible.”

4. Whispers (Tu, 2018)

“Awesome & unique metal album. Songs are both in Maori and English and some tracks have very little vocals in them at all (which I personally love). I don’t skip any of them – they’re all good.”

3. Raupatu (Raupatu, 2017)

“I love all of their songs, but this one actually shaked me to my metal core. Literally shook me when I first listened to it and after that I didn’t just love this band, it’s like they awoke some kind of patriotism in me.”

2. Rū Ana Te Whenua (Tu, 2018)

“Alien Weaponry popped up on my youtube autoplay one day and I was immediately blown away. Had the great fortune of seeing and photographing them live. Brilliant stuff, unbelievable performance. If you’re a fan of hard rock, thrash metal, but with melody and history, this is a MUST own.”

1. Kai Tangata (Tu, 2018)

“This band has a lot of raw talent and has the potential to be really amazing as they grow in age and their craft. I love all of the songs in Te Reo Maori. I really feel those are all outstanding. The english songs, I’m not too keen on, but still are pretty good considering the age of the band members. I really wanted to support them, and so I bought their album- I do not regret it at all!”
