Metal : A Pick Of Destiny

(Devilish laughter in background)

....what fucking awesome movies!!. If you are a true rock/metal fan, you gotta watch "A Pick Of Destiny" and "Metal : A Headbanger's Journey". While the first one is more comedic and good fun, the second one is all in-your-face truth about the metal culture.

Tenacious D star in APOD as themselves and its really good fun. I enjoyed the part where JB gets high on some mushrooms and trips like mad!! The best parts are where Dio comes to him in a vision after he is locked in his room as a kid!. And the scenes with the sasquatch!! Hahaha..

Dave Grohl is also in the movie - as Satan. Great acting I should say.

A more in your face movie about Metal is "Metal : A Headbanger's Journey". An incredibly awesome movie, the only thing I would have loved would for the movie to have been longer, much longer. Like say, 10 hours or so....interviewing more bands!. Its really a great documentary done by Sam Dunn meeting a cross section of metal-stars, both young and old. One of the most interesting parts was where he meets Dio in his house! I love the interview with Bruce Dickinson too.

Hehe, heres what Bruce had to say about metal - "It really gets inside the mind of a 15 year old. If you ever lose that 15 year old kid inside of you, then it won't make any sense at all!. And then people will start saying - 'Cough!, Cough, That was just a part of my life I'm really embarrassed about y'know. Those stupid trousers and long hair.' People are ashamed of what they were when they were young!!."

Sam Dunn ends the documentary at a concert, surrounded by other metal fans with these words - "Ever since I was 12 years old, I've had to defend my love for metal from those who said its a less valid form of music. My answer now is - you either feel it or you don't!. If metal doesn't give you that overwhelming sense of power or make the hairs at the back of your neck stand up, you might never get it. And you know what, that is ok!. Cause judging by the 40,000 other metal fans around me, we're doing just fine without YOU!."
