Since 1978, Anvil has become one of heavy metal's most influential yet commercially unsuccessful acts. In 2006, after a fledging European tour Anvil sets out to record their thirteenth album and continue to follow their dreams.
Steve 'Lips' Kudlow,
A documentary film about session and touring musicians that are hired by well established and famous bands and artists like Metallica, KISS, and Billy Joel. These hired guns may not be household names, but are still masters of their craft.
Lamb of God, whose fanbase continues to grow on a daily basis, giving them the number two album in the country behind Taylor Swift, set out to make a movie about how their genre of music has gone global. Midway through filming, lead singer Randy Blythe was arrested and charged with manslaughter in the Czech republic. This caused the project, which was originally meant for fans, to drastically switch tracks, turning it into an edge-of-your-seat legal thriller.Written by
Sometimes as a documentary maker, you hit the paydirt, I guess. This would be a totally uninspiring "We do it for the fans" tour DVD documentary if it were not for the film-makers' luck and the band's misfortune half way through. (I don't mean to be crass about the situation that occurred. I do sympathise. I just mean from a film-makers point of view it made the film something more than it ever would have been).
What then follows is a story of fellowship and friendship, watching a man walk the harder path to do what is right and find peace in himself. The sins of the past have been cleared away by sobriety and he now has the ultimate test of his resolution and of his new path. It is heartening to watch how he and others around him stand up and be counted.
I'm not gonna become a fan of Lamb Of God but I certainly loved this "right place, right time" piece of documentary making that was well crafted and told a human story behind what a lot of people may feel is devilish music.
