Metal Evolution

Metal Evolution

"Metal Evolution" is an 11-episode docu-series produced by Scot McFadyen and Sam Dunn of Banger Films and is based on the groundbreaking "Heavy Metal Family Tree." The "Heavy Metal Family Tree" is a 26 sub-genre genealogical chart which reveals the vast complex progeny of heavy metal - from Early Metal and Shock Rock to Thrash, from Progressive Metal to Grunge and Nu Metal. Using the chart as his road map, host/producer and metalhead turned anthropologist Dunn, crisscrosses the globe exploring the vast history of heavy metal across its 40+ year history and beyond. From bars and back alleys to the biggest open air festivals, Dunn will visit the pioneers of British and American hard rock who laid metal's sonic foundation, as well as the current leaders of contemporary metal. Whether you love metal, documentaries or just great stories, "Metal Evolution" will be the ultimate examination into the history of Heavy Metal music.

Great series although I missed a few items. For example, no matter how bad these bands sound, the Norwegian black metal circle was notorious enough to be covered, and I also missed oriental metal being explored (some great bands in there, such as Orphaned Land, Salem, Mezarkabul, Wasted Land, ...). I would also not have included Nirvana, Soundgarden etc as this is grunge, nothing wrong with that but if you make a documentary on metal music then you gotta apply the right tags ;)
