Shepherds Reign Share Video For 'Ala Mai' + 'Meditation Track'

Chris Cudby / Tuesday 28th May, 2024 1:55PM

Finalists for the 2024 Taite Music Prize last month, Polynesian metal masters Shepherds Reign reemerge with a suitably epic coda of corts to their 2023 album Ala Mai. Translating to "Awaken" in Samoan, the soaring title track receives new visuals directed by Bahador Borhani and made with support from NZ On Air — a majestically cinematic, star-gazing "journey to awaken the world to the spirit of Polynesia and inspire peace and resilience". Launched on streaming services in conjunction with their video, Shepherds Reign's instrumental 'Meditation Track' invites listeners to join the South Auckland five-piece on a deeply atmospheric, ominously textured fifteen minute rhythmic excursion in sound...

"Ala Mai is our call to the forefathers for strength and guidance. It's a reminder that we are part of something bigger, a Polynesian legacy that spans across oceans and nations. We face many difficulties today, but with the help of our ancestors, we believe we can bring peace and share our stories with the world."

'Ala Mai' is out now via Golden Robot Records.
