A sequel to the hit Metal - A Head-banger's Journey, Global Metal uncovers the huge cultural impact of the world's most misunderstood musical form. Film-makers Scot McFadyen and Sam Dunn take their journey of discovery deeper; through Asia, South America and the Middle East.

Showing how these regions have taken the musical influences of the West and created sounds uniquely their own, as they struggle to have their voices heard in oppressive societies, Global Metal fuses real concert footage from Metal legends with gritty urban sounds from the world's most unexpected places. From Indonesian Death Metal to Chinese Black Metal to Iranian Thrash Metal, Global Metal reveals a worldwide community of metal-heads who aren't just absorbing metal, they're transforming it.

Along for the ride are some of the biggest acts in the world, featuring Metallica, Iron Maiden and Slayer, backed by a massive soundtrack including Kiss, Deep Purple and Sepultura.

Not just for fans of metal, Global Metal is for anyone interested in how a passionate subculture can spread, mutate and evolve on today's international stage. It is for anyone interested in how metal fans view music as a uniting power against the forces of misinterpreted religion, political upheaval and capitalist greed.

Well-made and intriguing, with a series of jaw-dropping audience shots, Global Metal is an awesome piece of documentary film-making. Part musical study, part people study and all head-banging bliss, this highly original investigation is not to be missed.
