Hello everyone. I wasn't exactly sure where to post this but figured this was as good a place as any.

Last night while waiting for the UFC ppv to start, (Oh how I love Randy Couture and GSP...sorry off track) I caught the documentary Metal: A Headbangers Journey on some movie channel on satellite. It's by Sam Dunn an anthropologist, and a life long fan of heavy metal.
The documentary was made in 2005 and I'm sure some have seen it, but if you haven't I'd recommend it. If your a big fan of metal you probably won't learn anything new, but I'm sure you'll still find it entertaining and interesting. But for a new fan of the genre or even someone who's just interested in finding out what all the growling is about tongue.gif it's worth a watch. Dunn does an excellent job I think of breaking down the different aspects of the genre and explains the history behind most of it. He shows the passion that the fans have for the music and how the genre has battled with the mainstream culture. (I personally love the footage of Dee Snider walking into a congressional meeting to talk against "the filthy fifiteen" list from the early eighties. All these politicians, including Gore, smirking as Snider walks in with the cut off jean vest, tight pants, make up and wild hair, figuring he can't put two words together and then he blows them away with a very eliquant, educated, and compelling speach. Classic Snider) Dunn looks at sensorship, religion, death and many other influences on the music and it's culture. He discusses these and many other issues with some of the the biggest names in metal...Iommi, Dickinson, Lemmy, Dio just to name a few.
Now I'm not a huge metal fan but I am getting there...slowly. This site has opened my eyes to a lot of new music...thanks Uncreator smile.gif and this documentary taught me a few things. It was entertaining and well very interesting to say the least....man do folks love their metal. \m/ But as open minded as I'm trying to be....those Norwegian Death Metal guys still kind of scare me. sad.gif

So if you get a chance, have a watch. It's worth the 2 hrs or so.....the Dickinson interview is pretty cool.
