History of Metal

It should be required by every Metalhead, headbanger, wearer of black shirts and devil’s horn flasher to watch two documentaries by Sam Dunn, the Canadian anthropologist and metalhead since 12 & Scot McFayden (follow them on Twitter). After his first doc ‘Metal: A Headbanger’s Journey’ got an enormous response from Metalheads around the world, Sam followed up with Global Metal.

Sam and Scot are not the type to rest. They’re living beyond their childhood fantasy and making docs on some of rock and metal’s greatest.

Iron Maiden: Flight 666

…and their most recent work ‘Rush: Beyond the Lighted Stage’ for which they won the audience award at Tribeca Film Fest 2010. Interview with the filmmakers here.

That first one, Metal: A HeadBanger’s Journey, actually looks really sweet. I’m a metalhead myself, but my roots are in classic rock since I started in a classic rock band when I was 15.

I’m glad that that documentary appears to cover such a wide range of “metal” since no one can agree on what the genre actually stands for anymore. haha Nice post!

I have only seen the Maiden one myself but have been meaning to see a Headbangers Journey.
I would also recommend, “Anvil, The story of Anvil” to anyone. Great documentary even if you are not a rocker.
