Storyline

The music industry is changing, record sales are down, artists are making less money, and mediocrity holds sway. Yet there are more bands than ever before working for years just to receive even the tiniest drop of success. Following the lives and careers of Tub Ring, Bloodshoteye, and 3 Mile Scream, with supporting interviews from major players in the heavy music scene, this documentary sheds light on why some bands never make it and why the ones that break realize only too soon that life on a label is only the beginning of their troubles. Written by Baseline Studiosystems

A well rounded look at the music industry of today
30 October 2008 | by Stephen RobertsonSee all my reviews

The director manages to take an in depth and honest look at the music industry as it stands today and follows a few bands at different stages in their careers and chronicles their journey to "making it". Definitely a must watch for any fans of music and the industry. Even if you're not a fan of metal music, the documentary gives you enough information that anyone can't help but enjoy it.
