22 Sep 2021 // An interview by Will Stairmand

About Alien Weaponry

Alien Weaponry is a three-piece metal band whose style has been influenced by old school thrash and hardcore

AW was formed in 2010 by brothers Henry and Lewis de Jong, who have been listening to bands like Metallica, Anthrax and Pantera since birth; and started jamming and writing songs before they learnt the alphabet. Current influences include Lamb Of God, Tryvium, Subtract and System of a Down, but the band has developed its own distinctive thrash metal sound, destined to endure into future centuries.

Not content to rely on the shock value of their extreme youth, the group understands the value of professionalism, and works crowds to a frenzy with their tight, thrashy energy and wild stage performances. Their plans for world domination include playing at Wacken in Germany and touring the big international metal festivals. They refuse to play covers, and have enough material to begin recording their first album later this year.

Alex, mostly known as vocalist from Christchurch's world renowned and respected Organectomy, also has a long standing solo project that has grown from strength to strength with each release. His 4th offering From Nothing Comes All brings with it what I would consider an evolution of sound and a unique addition to what once might have been considered a straightforward slam home project.
