A documentary crew followed Metallica for the better part of 2001-2003, a time of tension and release for the rock band, as they recorded their album St. Anger, fought bitterly, and sought the counsel of their on-call shrink.
A chronological account of the heavy metal band Iron Maiden's 2008 world tour through India, Australia, Japan, USA, Canada, Mexico and South America in a jet piloted by the band's front man, Bruce Dickinson. Features interviews with the musicians, their road crew and fans.
Slayer is Slayer; the greatest metal band of all time and they are in top form with Dave Lombardo back behind the drums. This is an amazing, over-the-top performance, and belongs in any true metalheads collection.
Compare the intensity and drive and precision these guys exhibit to the lame crap that passes for 99% of all other bands output, and then remember that when they recorded this, they were all over 40 years old and had been playing together for more than 20 years. Then remember how other so-called thrash/metal bands slowed down and began cranking out ballads and pop $417.
Still loud, fast, and angry... just the way it should be!
