    Shepherds Reign fans unaware of the bands diverse whakapapa

    South Auckland metal band Shepherds Reign continues to be called a Samoan band despite it having Māori band members.

Online metal critic “Poss the Boss” proclaimed after hearing Le Manu, “Behold the power of Samoan/Polymetal!” YouTube user Erma Cardenas after seeing the music video says, “Samoan Island Metal.” Such sentiments are typical of the new fanbase that the band have created. Heavy Metal is a music genre often associated with Pākehā demographics despite having a large dedicated Polynesian following.
