This Documentary About Iconic Female Metal Performers Looks Awesome
Soaring Highs And Brutal Lows: The Voices Of Women In Metal is a documentary about iconic female performers in the metal genre and just from this one trailer I'm positive I want to see it! It's amazing how many double standards and general sexism apply to women in metal, whether you want to believe it or not.
The documentary is set to premiere in Eindhoven on October 15 and will receive a proper release and more screenings subsequently. So what's it all about?
Produced and directed by Mark Harwood, "Soaring Highs And Brutal Lows: The Voices Of Women In Metal" explores the experiences of female metal vocalists and combines interview, concert and archival footage to delve into the journeys of some of the most well-known singers and how they got where they are today. Featured interviewees include Floor Jansen (NIGHTWISH, REVAMP), Alissa White-Gluz (ARCH ENEMY), Simone Simons (EPICA), Charlotte Wessels (DELAIN), Doro Pesch (DORO, WARLOCK), Marcela Bovio (STREAM OF PASSION) and Anneke Van Giersbergen, among others.
