'WACKEN 3D - louder than hell', a no holds barred exploration of the legendary Wacken Open Air, the biggest heavy metal festival of the world, will shoot in July and August this year. Director Nobert Heitker's feature doc, shot by Producer and Director of Photography Tomas Erhart in stereoscopic, "true" 3D will give audiences a chance to experience Wacken - the fans, the music, the unique atmosphere - in the most intimate way. Wacken is a true one-off. Beyond description. Every year, for three days in August, a sleepy farming village in the middle of the Northern German countryside becomes the epicenter of the metal universe. Almost 75,000 metal heads from around the globe invade the Wacken Open Air to pay homage to the greatest bands of the international metal scene. The first Wacken Open Air in 1990 attracted less than 800 attendees but since then it has grown every year. Now it is the biggest open air festival of its kind.

Finally been there
27 March 2015 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

I guess this is the second best thing, if you've never been to Wacken. On the other hand if you are a real Metal fan, how can you not have been there? Stop reading/watching and go there immediately. Well actually not right now, but when the next festival is of course. Some people will recognize themselves, because we do not only get the rock-stars but also visitors of Wacken and their thoughts.

It is a well balanced affair and should entertain you, if you at least like Metal music a little bit. There are a few performances and a couple of classic (rock) songs being played. There is also one instance where we get classical music that scores people going "me(n)tal"! A great scene (with slo-motion effects and nice pictures).

There is a lot of profanity and if you're easily offended this isn't for you, but then again, it wouldn't be Rock&Roll otherwise, right?
