Thrash-Meets-Maori-culture On The German Stage
ALIEN WEAPONRY you start the tour these days, their Germany. The youngsters bring in their Fusion of new Zealand culture, the indigenous language, Te Reo Māori and modern Thrash Metal to the stage. The one or other Gig, the guys in the opening act of the ANTHRAX Tour gamble.
In June 2018 released debut album, "Tū", rose has moved up to # 1 in the new Zealand Charts. Several times already they have been awarded of new Zealand's head of government Jacinda Ardern with the highest cultural prizes in the country. So, too, for the Song "Raupatu":
The three musicians come from the sleepy Village of Waipu in new Zealand's North and were at the time of the band's formation in 2010, just 8 or 10 years old. The band name the Trio of the movie District 9 inspired.
The Songs convey emotional and politically motivated content about new Zealand's history and culture. The brothers Lewis de Long (vocals and guitar) and Henry de Jong (drums) originate from the Maori people-from the tribes of Ngati Pikiāo and Ngati Raukawa, and completed their first years of school in the traditional kura kaupapa Maori school, where the Māori language is taught.
