One of the best documenteries I've seen!

The film closes in India, where the first-ever concert by a major metal band - Iron Maiden, no less - is finally taking place.

Format: DVD
Global Metal is the second documentary by Sam Dunn, and serves as the perfect companion piece to his documentary about/love letter to heavy metal Metal - A Headbanger's Journey. In Global Metal, Dunn travels the globe to take a closer look at metal outside of the traditional American and European settings. Along with members of metal bands in each country he visits, Dunn gets some perspective from members of Slayer, Metallica and Iron Maiden, among others.

Some of his destinations are obvious. He starts in Brazil, home of the massive Rock in Rio festivals, where he speaks to members of Sepultura and Angra. Japan is another obvious choice, as their love for metal has been rock solid for decades (hence all those elusive Japanese-only bonus tracks). In Japan he profiles Sigh and X-Japan, but sadly not Loudness or Anthem.

After that, Dunn's travels lead him to some surprising countries. Who knew China and India had emerging metal scenes, or that there were enough metal fans in Arab countries to warrant a festival in Dubai? His stop in Israel, where he spoke to the singer of the brilliant Orphaned Land, was illuminating, especially when the topic of Slayer's controversial "Angel of Death" came up. It's unfortunate that the members of Slayer weren't called upon to address this directly. I did, however, find it admirable that Dunn pressed the member of an Indonesian metal band (whose name escapes me) about the contradiction of wearing an anti-swastika patch while actively calling for the destruction of Israel.

The film closes in India, where the first-ever concert by a major metal band - Iron Maiden, no less - is finally taking place.

This DVD is the most awesome display of photojournalism I have seen in a long time. Shot all over the world with great scenic backdrops, it has priceless interviews and footage from so many countries across the globe. Global Metal is a must see for any metal fan.

I loved Metal: A Headbanger's Journey, and although this wasn't quite as good, as with the first film, I could have watched another hour or two easily. It's interesting to see different cultures interpreting metal in their own way and like Headbanger's Journey, Sam Dunn has made another great film about a still misunderstood genre of music. Can't wait until his next film. The Maiden film is fantastic as well.

After seeing Metal - A Headbangers Journey back in 2005, I didn't think that another movie could compare to it, but I was wrong! Global Metal is an excellent continuation of the themes explored in the original film, and it really showcases Sam Dunn's anthropology background.

Global Metal has a lot less of the history of heavy metal, and instead focuses on the history and culture of the respective country Sam is visiting, and how that has impacted the metal scene in that country. During the course of this documentary Sam visits 7 different countries: Brazil, Japan, India, China, Indonesia, Israel and Dubai. In each location Sam interviews some of the big and up and coming bands from that country, and also explores how metal has flourished there. Some of the big names are Max Cavelera of Sepultura from Brazil, Yoshiki Hayashi of X Japan from Japan, Sahil Makhija of Demonic Ressurection from India, and Kaiser Kuo of Tang Dynasty from China. There are several up and coming bands from Indonesia and Israel that are featured, and when the film comes to an end in Dubai, it is at the Desert Rock festival, the only heavy metal festival in the middle- east.

Global Metal is another excellent film from Sam Dunn and Scot McFayden, it explores metal in a new and fresh way, which makes for a very informative and entertaining movie - Definitely a must have for metal fans!!

For anyone who wants to see the big picture on metal, this is an absolute must. I wanted it to give me a perspective on how what has been associated with the British and the American working classes may have evolved around the world. And it serves that purpose very, very well. Can't imagine understanding metal from a broader perspective without this video.

The first REAL documentary on Metal in a LONG time.

While "Decline of the Western Civilization Part 2" remains the cornerstone of the topic, this show is the first to actually take a look at where metal has thrived for years and years - everywhere but the United States. It contains very interesting feedback from people all over the world.

I love this film. I don't love heavy metal but the director's first film: "Metal: A Headbanger's Journey" was so terrific, that I had to buy this when my local DVD shop didn't stock it. If you have not seen the first film I recommend it, seeing it first, added to the pleasure I got out of watching this one. But one of my friends who watched this with me and had not seen the other, thought this a stand-alone enjoyable piece of music documentary.

It is made by a guy who is both a headbanger and has a Masters in Anthropology. He focuses on several countries with massive metal scenes: Japan, India, Indonesia, Iran, Dubai, China, Brazil etc and he shows how, in each country, the Heavy Metal music scene has evolved according to the needs of the culture. It is completely fascinating to see the mutations of the music according the needs of place. As a filmmaker, Sam Dunn has a fantastic sense of the particularity of each culture. The taste of each country is so specific - for this alone it is worth watching. Added to this, is the music itself and how each culture has adopted it or adapted it. And then there are the fascinating personalities: the metal musicians, local and global and the wonderful fans, some of whom moved me to tears. (Yes - really!!)

I have learned so much about the scene through watching Global Metal, (and Metal A Headbangers Journey). Through them I have acquired a great respect for the Metal scene. I am still not a big Metal music fan, (although of course, I downloaded several albums after watching these films, I don't actually play them much) but I love these films and rate them highly. I have loads of Music doco's and I think these are among the best music doco's ever made.(Yes - really!)
