New 'Global Metal' documentary looks f'n awesome

Sam Dunn is back! The dude who made arguably the best metal documentary ever, Metal: A Headbangers Journey, returns with a follow-up doc called "Global Metal" taking a look at how the scene has transcended borders and cultures and is a worldwide phenomenon. The press release reads:

In "Global Metal", directors Scot McFadyen and Sam Dunn — the makers of the acclaimed documentary "Metal: A Headbanger's Journey" — set out to discover the impact of heavy metal on the world's cultures beyond Europe and North America. The film follows metal fan and anthropologist Sam Dunn on a whirlwind journey through Asia, South America and the Middle East as he explores the underbelly of the world's emerging extreme music scenes — from Indonesian death metal to Chinese black metal to Iranian thrash metal. "Global Metal" reveals a worldwide community of metalheads who aren't just absorbing metal from the West — they're transforming it, creating a new form of cultural expression in societies dominated by conflict, corruption and mass consumption.
