Fantastic movies. These two movies are documentaries that deal with heavy metal music, but are nearly polar opposites. I will attempt to review both of them here, but I encourage anyone who hasn't seen them both to watch them. I love the contrasts between them and it really made me feel so much for pride for being the way I am, because there is a such a HUGE metal following. And even "Decline", which attempted to shoot down heavy metal and make it look terrible, made me proud because I am one of the people who realize that heavy metal is so much more than a bunch if angry teenage satanists.



The Decline of Western Civilization Part II: The Metal Years

This documentary is an attempt to showcase the Los Angeles Heavy Metal scene in the 1980's. The documentary, to me, is an attempt to make Heavy Metal music look like a deranged, decadent music form. It is based mostly off of the stereotypes of heavy metal. The film shows the excess of heavy metal, but does not show any counter view points. I think this film is worth watching, it shows some cool footage of bands like Megadeth, Faster Pussycat, Lizzy Borden, and a few obscure glam metal bands. It also features interviews from Dave Mustaine, Ozzy Osbourne, Brett "sellout" Michaels, Chris Holmes (W.A.S.P), Steven Tyler, Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley, and many more.





Metal: A Headbanger's Journey

This film is one of my all time favorites. It follows a long time metal fan across the world, as he interviews metal musicians, metal fans, and other metal enthusiasts. This documentary attempts to answer the question of "why does metal receive so many negative stereotypes". The narrator travels across the world and interviews people such as Ronnie James Dio, Tony Iommi, Alice Cooper, Bruce Dickinson, Tom Morello, Mark Morton, Lemmy, Geddy Lee, Tom Araya, and Jørn Tunsberg (accomplice to Varg Vikernes) to name a few. This documentary is simply incredible, as it showcases all forms of metal, from Black Metal, to Power Metal. He even travels to Wacken Open Air festival, which was very cool. This documentary does a good job of defending metal from all of the negative stereotypes out there, and is a must watch for any metal fan.

Some Kind of Monster was good.... but these are just documentaries that look at heavy metal as a whole.

It was entertaining
I love how it ended with master of puppets
They loved making that album
Too bad everyone hates it to death and now they pretty much disown it
