Na Maza, a Canberra based Metal-core group, have been an active local band since 2007 and have supported acts such as: Twelve Foot Ninja, Angry Anderson and the band of Doom, just to name a few. Amongst the goals that the band have set for themselves, bringing to life the music that could only be heard in their heads, the music that they longed to hear, is their number one goal. Each member of Na Maza was born into the music industry from different origins and have had their own experiences and adventures as they've waded their way through the music industry. The band believe that this adds to their diversity and helps them achieve a more unique sound via a range of perspectives.
