Did You Know?


Sebastian Bach: I bought "Kill 'em All" by Metallica going through the import section in my vinyl record store and I picked it up, turned it around and I go "These are the ugliest humans I've ever seen in my life... I have to buy this".

This was clearly made by people who were completely uneducated on metal. Watch "A Headbangers Journey" if you want real metal information. This only touches on mainstream bands, which completely misrepresents the metal genre. There is almost nothing on black, death, doom, etc. In fact, there isn't anything that hasn't been given MTV airplay. Sure its always great to see the bands like metallica, maiden, priest, slayer, megadeth etc. represented, and they are good bands who deserve it, but for every one of those there's an entire section dedicated to nu-metal or glam. On top of that, when they decided to talk about a good band such as anthrax, they concentrate on "Bring the Noise" rather than their earlier, much more "Metal" (for lack of a better word) stuff. Just because it has the word in the name doesn't make it metal. Nu-metal, Glam/Hair Metal and most recently metalcore are simply examples of the mainstream music industry trying to tap into the metal cashcow by watering down the original product in attempt to attract a bigger audience.

There are some good moments, but for the most part this series completely missed the mark. If you are a true metal fan, avoid this or you will find yourself angry at this representation, and if you are a new fan, please do not watch this movie or you will be grossly misinformed on what metal is.
