5.0 out of 5 stars A 30 year metal journey, 22 Jan 2007
This review is from: Metal - A Headbanger's Journey [DVD] (DVD)
This is a documentary by a Metal fan that is very well made and benefits from professional production.

It is also notable from tracing the history of Metal from early 70's through Shock Rock (Alice Cooper) NWOBHM(Motorhead) to New American metal (Lamb Of God)

Along the way it covers subject such as Sexuality, It's link with evil, women in Rock and of course the Norwegian black metal scene.

In fact it is an interview with two band members of pionerring Black metal band Mayhem that provides the funniest moment in the DVD.

He interviews some of the most innfluential men (and women) in rock including Bruce Dickinson (Iron Maiden) Alice Cooper, Dee Snider (Twisted Sister), Ronnie James Dio (Dio), Tony Iommi (Black Sabbath) Lemmy (Motorhead) "The Dude" - Vince neil (Motley Crue) 2 members from girlschool, Doro Pesch (Doro) and Corey from Slipknot.

Of these interviews Ronnie Dio and Alice Cooper provide some very funny lighthearted moments with Dio talking about Gene-isims (Gene Simmons) and Alice openly lauding the Norwegian black metal scene based on the band members he's met.

There are some landmark moments her including footage of the actual oversight senate meeting with the PMRC's Tipper Gores senator husband Al and Dee Snider selected from the bands that were targetted to appear and speak in Heavy metal's corner (his articualtion will surprise you)

There are 2 disks packed with interviews, tracks (not full tracks) and concert footage.

It's a very honest and quite comprehensive documentary and a must for every Metal fan.

It's worth most of the price alone because of the 2 minute Mayhem interview which is very funny.
