Heavy Metal Documentary


VH1 has announced the premiere of “Heavy: The Story of Metal”, a four-part documentary tracing the evolution of heavy metal music and culture, from its beginnings in Birmingham to its current status nowadays.

In a series of four themed hours premiering May 1st to May 4th, “Heavy: The Story of Metal” (title seems not to be the final one) explores four decades of music:
- episode one is dedicated to the roots of heavy metal (60s and 70s)
- episode 2 is dedicated to the beginning and the early stages of what has been known as “The New Wave of British Heavy Metal.”
- episode 3 concentrates more on the American side, in California, on bands like Van Halen, Poison and Motley Crue.
- episode four takes a walk on the dark side: Guns N’ Roses, Metallica, thrash, grunge, and how the music and images of Marilyn Manson became associated with the Columbine massacre.

It is said that the interviews include guests such as: Bruce Dickinson, Fred Durst, Rob Halford, Scott Ian, Tommy Lee, Dave Mustaine, Vinnie Paul, Mark Putnam, Riki Rachtman, Nikki Sixx, Slash, Rob Zombie and more.

Sounds great to me :) !!
