ALIEN WEAPONRY

Among the greatest frustrations for metal fans, during this whole pandemic shitshow, has been the abrupt thwarting of many a young band's upward ascent. ALIEN WEAPONRY have reason to feel more aggrieved than most, as the New Zealand trio's notoriety spread like wildfire following the release of their 2018 "Tu" debut album. Widely acclaimed as a killer live band, too, they have had to sit tight and bide their time while the world ground to an enervating halt. Of course, like just about everyone else, ALIEN WEAPONRY have a new album, but "Tangaroa" carries with it the burden of the slightly unreasonable expectation that these boys — brothers Lewis and Henry de Jong (guitars and drums respectively) and new bassist Turanga Morgan-Edmonds — are metal's next big thing. Recapturing that initial momentum was never going to be easy, so the pressure is firmly on at this point, not least because the novelty appeal of the band's tender ages has, as you might expect, been erased by time.
