Alien Weaponry Bring The Tribal Warfare In “Kai Tangata” Music Video


Maori thrash band Alien Weaponry have premiered a music video for their track”Kai Tangata” below. The song’s title translates to ‘eat people’ and is used in reference to a Maori tradition of eating the flesh of their vanquished enemies as an insult to them. According to an official press release: “In their epic 7-minute song, the thrash metal trio recreates the memory of the early 19th Century musket wars, where Ngapuhi (Northern) tribes, newly armed with muskets, attacked and decimated the [Alien Weaponry‘s] de Jong brothers’ Te Arawa (Central North Island) ancestors, who at that time were still using traditional weaponry.” The band’s new album “Tu” will be released on June 01st on Napalm.
