Alien Weaponry premiere brutal new video for “Kai Tangata”

“In 1820, the great Northern War Chief Hongi Hika departed New Zealand for England. On his return, he brought with him the word of God and hundreds of muskets. Things would never be the same again…”

… so begins the video for Alien Weaponry’s new single, “Kai Tangata”.

The title literally translates to “Eat People”; and refers to the ancient Māori tradition of eating the flesh of their enemies after battle in order to insult them. It is also an ancient term for a war party.
