Yesterday, friends of mine has recommended me two movies on the topic of metal
As a global movement. The film is a sort of a headbanger (metalhead) personal research on metal music development and current status all over the world.
The movie was conducted by a San Dunn (a hardcore metal fan) who travels aroundin different locations all around the world and does reflect on metal scene on
the 6 continents. It was of a real interest to me to check out the moviesout of curiosity considering my metal passion that lived with me over the years.
The first movie is called Metal – A Headbanger’s Journey (2005)
The movie includes many interview with famous metal musicians Wacken metal festival scenes of one of the most famous metal bands over the world.
The second movie is called Global Metal (2008) and is a sort of continuation of the first one.
Some of the metal musicians interviewed in the Movie are:
Tom Araya – (Slayer)
Alice Cooper – (Alice Copper)
Lemmy Kilmister – (Motorhead)
Kerry King – (Slayer)
Rob Zombie – (Rob Zombie)
Lars Ulrich – (Metallica)
Max Cavalera – (Sepultura, Soufly)
Each of the forementioned musicians speaks about his attitude and vision on Metal
as a culture and it’s development over the years as well as about his/her personal
Experience with metal fans during their huge metal tours aroud the world.
The movie includes also references to many infamous on a global scale metal bands
Which are large popular in their home countries and do a serious metal music.
Each of this band’s philosophy and lyrical expression is largely centered around their culture.
This creates something new and unseen before in the metal scene and not to mention
does integrate the world in a better way.It’s really shocking to see the metal scene in India, Indonesia, Japan, China etc.
It’s almost incredible that metal music exists their and enjoys a good popularity
where culture is so different from the culture we have in Eastern Europe!
Well enough talk, take your time get to the nearest torrent or a metal shop and
look for that two titles. I guarantee you’ll experience a couple of hours
of fun and nice music. Enjoy!
