Metal Evolution - 1x01 Pre-Metal


Tracing the origins of metal is a phantasmagoric odyssey that traverses cities and countries, oceans and continents. For Sam Dunn, stop #1 on this heavy metal pilgrimage is the birthplace of Metal's indisputable progenitor, rock 'n' roll: namely Memphis, Tennessee, home of Sun Studio. From there, Sam will cross the Atlantic, sketching the development of rock, uncovering the dawn of Metal's central ingredient, the power chord, through a young band called The Kinks, with their formative smash, "You Really Got Me." The earliest sounds of Metal will be revealed-the guitar innovators of fuzz and distortion-who played them and how these sounds were generated, while fresh and candid conversations with proto-metal icons like Pete Townshend and Jeff Beck will enlighten us every step of the way.
