I remember this Polynesian band went viral in 2020 with their track Le Manu. Everyone was excited when Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson added it to his workout playlist, then things went kinda quiet. The band fuse Samoan warrior lyrics and thrashy, grove-laden riffs. Call this a do-over. If you know of them, I want you to approach this band as if you have never heard of them before. Metal can sometimes be guilty of treating world music-inspired bands as a novelty, and I want you as a discerning fan to listen to this band, as they deserve. They're a tight-as-fuck, musically imaginative riff machine. My favourite part is how they construct their risers with instruments I have never heard building up to that almighty drop. I bet if you saw them live you would leave the gig as if you have just seen a self-help guru – this music makes you feel like a powerful warrior.
