Any of you see this? If so, what did you think?

It was pretty good as a whole. Not as deep as I'd like it to have been, but as a general overview, it was pretty good, and they got some of the big names in there. But there were a few bad points...namely Slipknot, Rob Zombie, and the fact that <rant>he didn't mention Venom ONCE!!!</rant>

^ Both the threads are in the pit, so it is quite appropriate to discuss here.

Silence, n00b. Be that as it may or may not, they were a large part of metal's evolution.

Well, it was the 'headbangers' journey, not so much the Metal Journey, eh?

Who am I kidding, I haven't seen it.

I actually really, really liked it.

Anyone going in expecting the perspective of a UG metalhead isn't too bright. Our metal perspective is far different from many people's.

Fair enough. But since our metal perspective is the RIGHT one...

#10
That's because it was the ONLY metal documentary that was mass-produced...lol.

i remember someone making a thread about this awhile ago in this forum with a free preview. i think it's the same movie your talking about. i havent seen it but it looks neat.

I've been involved ina few other major websites metal forums and they're all virtually identical. I should do some sort of psychological analysis on the subject.

Anyway, yeah, "tr00" metalheads generally all have the same concept of metal. Unfortunately there will never be a well-produced movie on the subject. In fact I would like to see ANY decent documentary on the subject. This seems like it might be worth viewing, but if it's anything like VH1's "History of metal" then it probably sucks.

I've been to the odd site that isn't so anal about metalcore (there was definitely some metalcore presence).

A lot of them seem to be the same, but this guy is definitely a tr00 metalhead who doesn't care about the metalcore/nu metal scene.

I personally see it all as a form of metal but I don't like it, so I certainly do agree with most of the stuff he said in the documentary. Really disappointed with the lack of Dream Theater coverage, though.
#16
Agreed. A complete absence of Dream Theater, Opeth, Necrophagist...what's that about!?
#18
I posted a thread about this in this forum. I think it had the exact same name too. OMG SEARCH N00b!

But seriously, I thought it was alright. Not as bad as i thought it would be, but not as good as i hoped.
#20
It wouldn't have bugged me so much if he hadn't put so much emphasis on the black metal bands. I mean... we're looking at one of the biggest metal bands to come out of the US/Canada and he just kind of ignored them. You see their name once during those really cool metal "family tree" shots.

How did you like the interviews? The one with Ghaal was so hilarious.

Even my brother, who has zero knowledge of metal and doesn't even listen to it thought it was really funny.

(Sorry, I can't remember which band it was in that specific interview...)

^Gayhem ermm... Mayhem

I think the guy yelling was Necrobutcher.

Dio trashed him every time he got on camera!! haha

Picked this up the other day at Best Buy. I thought it was well done. Of course they can't hope to cover all metal has to offer and all the bands in the length of one single film. Of course they're going to leave out some bands and stuff here and there, but it was very well done, even people not into metal can appreciate it.

Haha , this reminds me: I flicked through 'Kerrang - A Tribute to Metal' Or 'A Metal History' can't remember the name.

It had 4 metal bands - Iron Maiden, Metallica, Judas Priest and Sabbath

The rest of it was full of crap like My Chemical Romance - since when have they been metal?

I couldn't believe the filth in that magazine

It was REALLY good in my opinion.

Lots of the bands you guys are mentioning were atleast brought up on the chart he did. So in a 90 minute movie whatta ya expect?
#36
I don't know why they never include extreme metal, and always focus on the 80's hair metal trash and early heavy metal. The extreme metal scene is far more significant for metal than the rest...it is what metal is today. Would it really be that hard for a documentary to focus on real metal?

The only mention of extreme metal is always the "shocking" aspects of black metal, with the crimes and such. Metal isn't about that shit, nor is it about big hair and tranny costumes. I'm still waiting for the day when a real metal documentary is made.
#37
this thread reminds me of the show, "HEAVY: The story of metal", which was aired in Vh1.
i saw it, i thought it was interesting. there are four episodes but seriously, all they talk about is hair metal. they didn't mention any of the extreme genres of metal

did anyone see it?

They never touch thrash beyond Metallica or maybe Slayer. this movie did one better and mentioned Sepultura and Venom, but thrash only got about 5 minutes, as did Death metal. Totally lame, those are huge genres.

There actually was a good documentary on German television about Nuclear Blast, and they did include lots of extreme metal and kept it true, mostly. It was on a culture-focused channel, actually...
That movie will probably not air in Germany anyways, at least not in the next half year or so...
