VBS.TV, heard faint rumblings of a remote Aboriginal township with a heavy metal gang problem. According to reports, Wadeye (pronounced wad-eh), population 2,232, was ruled by violent, spear-wielding gangs who’d taken names like the the Judas Priest Boys and Evil Warriors. Metal fans from way back, the VBS team dropped everything, travelled 3000km north and went to see it for themselves. Once there they befriended some of the gangs and were invited to tag along on hunting expeditions, heavy metal dance parties and Sunday Mass. Heavy Metal Gangs of Wadeye offers an unadulterated, VICE-like window into life in these Aboriginal ganglands.
