Global Metal

Filmmakers Scot McFadyen and Sam Dunn continue their cinematic study of all things heavy metal with this documentary examining the influence of the much-maligned musical genre beyond the affected cultures of Europe and North America. For those who know the telltale signs to watch for, metal-heads are everywhere. Unfortunately most highbrow music fans just aren't willing to credit these adrenaline-starved musicians with the originality they display by transforming the standards of the style rather than simply riffing on the standard clichés, all the while questioning the conflict that rages across the globe and questioning our habit for succumbing to mass-consumerism. By traveling to such regions as Asia, South America, and the Middle East, McFadyen and Dunn reveal that despite hailing from different cultures and speaking different languages, metal fans across the globe are bonded by a mutual distain of the status quo, and a desire to push the limits of music as far as they can go.
