In GLOBAL METAL, directors Scot McFadyen and Sam Dunn set out to discover how the West's most maligned musical genre - heavy metal - has impacted the world's cultures beyond Europe and North America. The film follows metal fan and anthropologist Sam Dunn on a whirlwind journey through Asia, South America and the Middle East as he explores the underbelly of the world's emerging extreme music scenes; from Indonesian death metal to Chinese black metal to Iranian thrash metal. GLOBAL METAL reveals a worldwide community of metalheads who aren't just absorbing metal from the West - they're transforming it - creating a new form of cultural expression in societies dominated by conflict, corruption and mass-consumerism.
Sam Dunn, tuo hevosnaamainen hevimies, tykkää duunailla dokkareita metallimusiikista. Aikasemmin mies on väsännyt Metal - The Headbanger’s Journeyn, joka kertoi metallista ja sen historiasta yleisluontoiset faktat. Nyt uudessa pätkässä pureudutaan ug-kamaan peilattuna harvinaisempien maiden meininkeihin ja kulttuureihin. Dokkarin pääpaino on aasian maissa, joiden lisäks pistäydytään Israelissa ja Brasiliassa.
Laadukasta ja ammattitaitoista settii aiheesta kiinnostuneille.
Sam Dunn. This rouge anthropologist chose a rather different subject for study. Music lover as he is, worked his way through the catacombs of history and tried to find why and how of Metal music in 2005. That documentary called Metal: The headbanger’s journey, was very well received by the masses and the metalheads alike. Post this documentary he was overwhelmed with requests asking him to explore remote metal music scenes, countries and areas which were mostly unheard of. Some of the places he visited were still in the incubation state and others did have a promising scene for the metal music. All these journeys he compiled together and in 2008 we got to see another informative documentary from his…
Well done documentary. Good companion piece to Metal: A Headbanger's Journey.
Brazil to Iran,
Done the Sam Dunn way
pretty great world metal doc.the footage of X-Japan kills
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Not as slick as a Headbangers Journey, and not as in depth as Metal Evolution, but as an overview of metal in different cultures it was really interesting. It made me think how much we take being able to buy a CD for granted.
The final section features scenes from Iron Maiden performing in India for the first time, in fact it's the first time any Heavy Metal band has played in India, the excitement of the crowd comes across very well and in turn made for a very emotional and poignant close.
