I'm looking for some good TV Documentaries about Metal, I've watched:
- Some Kind of Monster
- Metallimania
- Get Thrashed
and
- Death Metal; A Documentary

I really enjoyed all of them, anyone know of some other good ones?

I tried it out in store.

Great neck, nice n light, good tuning stability. Overall a good guitar. I didn't but it cause I generally only buy guitars over a grand now.

It's not a TV documentary, but Metal: A Headbanger's Journey is really good.

Heavy: The Story of Metal sucks, don't watch it.

Instead, watch the Global Metal documentary, made by the same guys as Metal: A Headbanger's Journey.

If you ever see the Seven Ages of Rock on tv (most likely vh1 classic), you'll definitely be disappointed by the metal episode.
First of all, they try to compact the entire history of metal into a 1 hour show. Then all they talk about is Sabbath, Priest, Maiden, Glam Metal, and Metallica. (and a little bit of Deep Purple, which I don't even think of as a metal band). And the show stops after Metallica's black album.

Nothing about modern metal. Nothing about Slayer, Anthrax, Megadeth, or Trivium. Basically, the show sucks.

A Headbanger's Journey is shit. How the fuck are Cradle of Filth NORWEGIAN BLACK METAL? And why even call it Norwegian black metal? It didn't even begin there and the scene nowadays is laughable.

Also, does doom metal exist?

I have i t on DVD. Pisses me off they have Rage Against The Machine and Slipknot in there as representatives of metal, but it's a damn good and well researched doc. Possibly one of the best around.
Then there's this band called Slice The Cake...

Bunch of faggots putting random riffs together and calling it "progressive" deathcore.
Stupid name.

I agree, watch Global Metal. I haven't seen it yet but it looked interesting from the trailer.

The best one I've seen was 666 At Calling Death. It's a death and black metal doc from 1993. The big flaw is that it's obviously biased towards death metal, and anti-black metal. It has interviews with just about everyone.

Youtube it.

Is Global Metal any good?
I heard Salem are on it, which is pretty cool, but that's about it.

The guy from Salem said that Varg sent him a nailbomb sometime in 1992.

Metal: A Headbanger's Journey is pretty good. Cradle of Filth and Slipknot/RATM ruin it. I kinda like RATM though.

I'm watching Global Metal as I type this, it's pretty interesting.. not the Japan part so much, the Brazil segment was really cool though.
#23
I've seen Metal: A Headbanger's Journey. It's like some guy who just got his degree and tries to better understand why metal is stereotyped. I've also seen Heavy: The History Of Metal. It breaks down metal into four parts and has lots of interviews with musicians.

That one Legalise Murder was pretty funny, although I don't think its online to watch for free anymore.

He explains why he did this in the version with his and the director talking about the movie over it (few good stories while the movie's playing on it). He says although they're borderline metal at best, that he wanted to try and represent all possible types/styles that some people might consider metal, and rule nothing out.

EDIT: And I just watched global metal, and there are some sick bands on it, although briefly, makes me wanna check them out online.

I'm surprised at a lot of these guys' English. Perfect. And I don't know how the hell some of the guys don't have accents, guess they were born somewhere else.

The Chinese guy was born in NY
