Slave To The Grind Is Going To Be A Great Grindcore Documentary, But It Needs Your Help

Let's make grindcore history happen!

Let's make grindcore history happen!

Director Doug Brown is trying to make a film about grindcore and he needs $12,000 to do so. He's got 51 days left on his Kickstarter campaign and he's already a third of the way there! So let's push this shit right over the edge and make this film happen, yeah? I'll bring in the high points about the film here so you don't have to go hunting around, but first check out the trailer!

The film will feature members of Municipal Waste, Napalm Death and a few others! Obviously quite a bit more than a few others. Outside the explanation of "it's a great idea," here's why the film needs to exist according to Brown:

"Slave To The Grind is the first official documentary on Grindcore.  Grindcore exists somewhere between metal and punk.  Grindcore is it's own beast, and this film will show the world how it came to be and why it continues to persist.

Enjoying Grindcore requires a certain dedication that is not radio-friendly.  Simply put, it is not easy to listen to.  Grindcore is outright abrasive, and though that is part of the appeal, it demands a level of introspection that pop music does not. You need to give a lot to grind – and like anything in life, the more you give, the greater the return."

And of course, where your money is going:

"$12,000 will pay for a few film shoots, hard drives, and the cost to create the Kickstarter perks. It doesn't even scrape the surface of the costs that we will acquire with music licensing, film festival submission fees, colour correction, and distribution start-up costs.  This is why we need fans to go above and beyond our $12,000 goal so we can keep this film as D.I.Y. as possible, and avoid turning to studios to help with the release."

Let's get this going! If only because I want to watch it.
