VIVA THE UNDERDOGS follows Parkway Drive's 15-year journey from small town surf-rats to international headliners on the world's biggest metal music festivals. From seeking out surf spots and sleeping on the streets during their first international tour, to evolving their sound and setting new benchmarks in metal with every album release, the five high school band-mates have always done it their own way.

Different subject and Captivating story
Metal music is an underground music genre. Not everyone really knows about it. This documentary is definitely one of the great music-related documentary. It takes us through the journey of the musicians and the highlights of their career. The way the film is directed is like a full-length dramatic film. It shows friendship, success, sacrifices, emotional turns and struggle. It does makes the viewer emotional but its its own musical way. The background music is theme related and carries the mood of the documentary till the end. With zero knowledge about Metal music, I still enjoyed the film till the end. A great delight to watch.
