'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.

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?
