Is he the 'Global Metal' guy? .

My biggest problem with the show is that they didn't include a Death or Black metal episode. Both genres are quite popular among metal listeners, certainly more so than glam or Power metal.

wat, he hasn't even finished the series yet

But yeah, like said above he takes it too seriously at times, but it's an interesting watch nonetheless.

Yeah, this is why I haven't bothered to watch of these so far. No one gives a shit about alice cooper. They are going in chronological order, so they should get to black metal soon if at all.
Buzz Osbourne gave a shit about Alice Cooper.

So Br00t4l!

No offense, metal forum. I like Zep. I just don't think they are metal.

They're not Metal, but they definitely helped it form.

And besides, just because they have a mellow song that doesn't mean a band isn't Metal. Orchid from Black Sabbath isn't exactly what I would consider "Metal", nor Solitude.

i love it when he says stuff like "maybe ___ isnt enough for a die hard true metal fan like myself"

I know. I just think that they are too blues based and are inferior to Sabbath. They just don't compare to say, Children of the Grave or Into the Void.

Too Blues based? Sabbath started off as a ****ing Blues band. And Achilles Last Stand absolutely compares to both of those songs.

I've started watching Metal Evolution on demand, and I must say that I enjoy learning the roots of Heavy metal.

Sorry to give you the wrong impression. I do really like Led Zeppelin, but Black Sabbath had a larger influence on metal. Their music was much darker and ended up being less bluesy, to me at least. And Achilles' Last Stand isn't proto-death metal in C# like Children of the Grave and Sabbath Bloody Sabbath.

Edit: Buzz Osbourne is in the ad for the grunge episode.

Sabbath wasn't really Proto Metal though, they were part of the wave of first Metal bands, and are considered the "first" actual metal band. They started out as a Blues band then got darker before they started playing.

But absolutely they had a larger influence, but that wasn't the point.

Also fuck yes, Buzz

We have almost come to an agreement.

This show sincerely disappointed me. I at least kind of enjoyed Headbanger's Journey, some of the interviews were interesting. Lemmy is interesting as always. But this show is sincerely lacking, ****ing KISS and Nu Metal and not a single mention of Doom, Death or Black Metal.
But regardless, I'm still curious as to how the Grunge episode will be, I always love a good Buzz interview.
Until the Light Takes Us is still the best Metal documentary I've seen
#30
I thought it was an interesting series, it went pretty far back into history, and covered a lot about the history of how metal came to be what it is today.

And I know it sucks that a lot of great bands weren't mentioned like Amon Amarth.

My last complaint is WHERE THE HELL IS THE FOLK METAL! (Korpiklaani)

Folk Metal that isn't Black Metal is generally bad.
#32
I really like the Thrash episode where they showed both sides of the 'Metallica's Black album was a sell out' argument. Although I thought there were alot of more double bass in the earlier JP albums, didnt think Overkill was the first. Although, with the next episode being Grunge, probably not gonna be interested in any more episodes :P

I think thats preference, because Korpiklaani kicks ass. However, I like all metal, so even Black metal influenced folk metal bands are cool.
#36
Its interesting, maybe not for everyone though.

Like if your expecting lots of sex, blood, and chaos, its not really like that. Its more about interviews and how the hard sound of metal came to be.

I don't think anyone is looking for that, what seems to piss people off is Sam Dunn's ignorance of the genre (course it could just be him wanting ratings, people care about Glam and Thrash more than Black or Death)

What also is annoying is how he plays it off like it's a tourist attraction. Like I said, the only reason I watch his stuff is the interviews.

Especially after watching Until the Light Takes Us, all other Metal documentaries so far have been disappointing in comparison.

...What? Why would anyone who wants to know the history of metal be looking for those...This isn't a documentary on medieval England sonny. People are angry because he has a decent opportunity to tell a version that is more informed then previous ones and totally scourers it. I understand one couldn't do an episode on German thrash alone, but that's why you tie it in with the big 4, that way you have a selling point to support the more underground shit, underground shit that probably wouldn't be as underground if useless cunts like Dunn actually did their home work and told people about their influences on the genre, which are massive. This guy is Canadian, and although unlikely, if I ever see this guy around I'm going to give him a verbal ass kicking the likes he has never seen, I'll probably even whip out the P word.

I agree, I wish that he would have covered alot more, and just the way he talks about metal annoys me.

Until The Light Takes Us seems to be talked about here lots, I'll have to watch it. (Black Metal has an interesting history.)
