30 year-old anthropologist Sam Dunn explores the culture of heavy metal music of which he has been a fan since 12 in this hard rocking documentary investigation. From the music's origins to the controversies that have landed it in court, via tales of backstage excess and groupie love, this is the definitive guide as Sam sets out on a global journey to find out why this music has been consistently stereotyped, dismissed and condemned and yet is loved so passionately by its millions of fans.
Shot on location in the UK, Germany, Norway, Canada and the US, this documentary is the first of its kind and features interviews, music and live performances from Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, Motley Crue, Motorhead, Slayer, Metallica, Sepultura, Rage Against The Machine, Slipkont and many more.
