This site is dedicated to Global Metal an informative documentary film that depicts the impact of globalization on the heavy metal music. The film features musicians (and non-musicians) from Seven countries - Brazil, Japan, India, China, Indonesia, Israel and Dubai. Directors Scot McFadyen and Sam Dunn set out to discover how the West’s most maligned musical genre – heavy metal – has impacted the world’s cultures beyond Europe and North America. The film follows metal fan and anthropologist Sam Dunn on a whirlwind journey through the continents - Asia, South America and the Middle East as he explores the world’s emerging extreme music scenes; from Indonesian death metal to Chinese black metal to Iranian thrash metal. GLOBAL METAL reveals a worldwide community of metalheads who aren’t just absorbing metal from the West, but are transforming it and creating a new form of cultural expression in societies dominated by conflict, corruption and mass-consumerism.
