The Story Of Metal (2006) - DVDRip Full Series

"Heavy: The Story of Metal," traces the evolution of heavy metal music and culture, from its dark, grim beginnings in Birmingham, England to the worldwide force that it remains to this day. In a series of four themed hours, "Heavy: The Story of Metal," explores four decades of music, each hour examining this powerful and often misunderstood genre, from metal's pioneers to its love of glam and excess; from the fight for metal's rebellious soul to its storied flirtation with the devil:

Episode One traces metal's roots in the late-60's in the bombed-out industrial town of Birmingham, England to the spectacular rise of Kiss and "glam metal" in the early 70's.

Episode Two examines metal's growing pains during the 70's when both high-brow rock critics and punk rock threatened its very existence. By decade's end, bands such as Iron Maiden, Judas Priest and Def Leppard gave birth to what became known as "The New Wave of British Heavy Metal."

Episode Three sees metal thrive in, of all places, sunny California. Van Halen, Poison, Motley Crue -- it's the world of hair metal. And, keeping everyone's Jacuzzi-soaked ego in check, a little film called Spinal Tap emerges.

Episode Four takes a walk on the dark side: Guns N' Roses, Metallica, thrash, grunge, and how the music and images of Marilyn Manson became associated with the Columbine massacre.

Told from the perspective of the musicians, promoters, writers and fans who have kept metal's flame alive for four decades, "Heavy: The Story of Metal," contains revealing, hilarious and sometimes shocking conversations. Interviews include Sebastian Bach (of Skid Row), Jerry Cantrell (of Alice in Chains), Phil Collen (of Def Leppard), Bruce Dickinson (of Iron Maiden), Fred Durst (of Limp Bizkit), Ace Frehley (of KISS), Rob Halford (of Judas Priest), Scott Ian (of Anthrax), Tony Iommi (of Black Sabbath), Chris Jericho (a professional Wrestler, and singer in Fozzy), Lemmy Kilmister (of Motörhead), Chuck Klosterman (a Journalist), Jani Lane (of Warrant), Tommy Lee (of Mötley Crüe), Doc McGhee (the manager), Bret Michaels (of Poison), Dave Mustaine (of Megadeth), Vinnie Paul (of Pantera), Dave "Snake" Sabo (of Skid Row), Nikki Sixx (of Mötley Crüe), Slash (of Guns N' Roses), Dee Snider (of Twisted Sister), Geoff Tate (of Queensrÿche), Eddie Trunk (a DJ), Rob Zombie (of White Zombie) and more.
