Since I don’t have anything to blog about today, I’ll just write about something that I watched lasted night. Correction, this is not just something! It was a documentary, ‘Global Metal’ by Sam Dunn and Scot McFadyen, two of the coolest movie makers in the planet. Man I was blessed. I known it was out one or two years back, but come on, even if its one of the coolest documentaries made on heavy metal, with the current economy, I had to think a zillion times to buy this.
Well my Metal side seduced me mercilessly to buy this DVD yesterday. I had to give in. Global Metal is a value for money DVD, even if you are not a heavy metal fan. Though everything revolves around metal scene in different parts of the globe, but the documentary did not fail to expose the different cultures of various countries and the spirit and the thought of youths. To be honest, if you are a metal fan you will find the first documentary ‘Metal: A Headbanger's Journey’ way better. But ‘Global Metal’ too has its own flavor.
I knew that there were metal heads across the globe but I was shocked to see there were even metal heads in the Middle East, such as Iran, Iraq and UEA. For god sake!! This was so blessing to hear. Middle Eastern youths in black T-shirts with prints or pictures of their favorite metal bands, long hair and the devil’s horn in their, it was quite a sight…. To bad that their government does not even allow music stores to sell metal CDs, leave alone live shows. Their only source is the Internet. Middle Eastern was not the only country. The documentary also covered countries such as India, China, Indonesia and more.
If you are a metal fan, this is a must watch for you. For the record, I was not paid to write about this documentary. I just happened to love it so much.. If you are watching this documentary, be ready , it will knock you off your F*****g socks………..
