Heavy Metal Gangs - Wadeye Australia

This is absolutely surreal to check out. A small Aboriginal community just south of Darwin, Australia that has gang problems amongst its twenty five hundred or so residents, which is fueled by their love of metal music. I knew of the Slaytanic army that we all become at Slayer shows but these folks have adopted the names into their own rite of passage. Whether it be the Judas Priests, The Slayer Mob or one of the many other band names written all over the local area. Truly makes you question what the early missionaries were trying to accomplish by bringing all the Aboriginals into one area.
