METAL DOWN UNDER - A HISTORY OF AUSTRALIAN HEAVY METAL ON DVD

“Metal Down Under is a vital and historic piece of film-making. A vibrant document of a thriving underbelly of Australian music that both audiences and the industry often choose to ignore” Brian Giffin – Loud Online
 
Since the late 1970’s a thriving underground scene of extreme music has continued to evolve in Australia. From grind-core, thrash, death metal, black metal, hardcore, doom, melodic metal, sludge, power metal and the many more sub genre’s that exist, Metal Down Under
traverses the full spectrum and takes a look at the bands, people and events that shaped this unique slice of Australian history.
 
More than just the music, we meet the characters that make metal in Australia what it is today. From promoters, radio hosts and magazine editors, to band members and extreme fans, Metal Down Under introduces you to a world you either didn’t want to know existed or have been a part of all your life.
