A great dvd, as expected. This is the story of metal in places you would have never thought of and it clearly demonstrates the universality of the language of music and how the essence of freedom lies in yourself and not in the often restrictive, cultural laws.
The insight on how music and culture interact is brilliantly achieved through the interviews and the testimonials of the fans. You're taken on a "metal" journey through Brazil, India, China, Israel, Indonesia and some Arab countries. If you are a metalhead, these are stories you'll empathize with. If you are a metalhead living in the "free" world, taking your favorite music for granted, you won't believe your eyes and ears.
One "stop" that is probably missing on the map of this world travel is Europe and its ex-communist countries where Metal has been and has increasingly become very popular among people of all ages. Looking forward to a new dvd from Sam and Scot.

i've been waiting for quit some time for Sam Dunn to do another documentary of metal. and being a metal fan of metal bands outside the states of america i was glad to see the documentary going across the globe. and of course i wish it would have been longer but hey, i enjoyed it anyway getting to know of bands i never heard about, like Melechesh. it's got great DVD extras. just awesome. Get it!

They did it again!! Only this time, they've introduced us to multiple cultures from around the world, and how rock music has been influential in their societies. I learned a lot from this film, its amazing how difficult it has been, and still is in some cases, in some parts of the world to get western music, metal in particular. Again, as in their first movie A Headbangers Journey, the interviews are excellent. Sam Dunn, being a long time banger himself, can totally identify with metal people, and they seem to feel free to talk to him about some intimate topics; they trust him, because he gets it, hes one of them. The interview with Sepultura's Max Cavalera, and with Bruce Dickinson are worth the price. Buts theres so much more. Its brilliant actually, and again, essential viewing for metal fans and curious onlookers alike. Absolutely beautiful!

I absolutely loved the first film and Global Metal does not disappoint. I had no idea how far metal had spread and it makes me proud to be a Metalhead. Yet another perfect and needed addition to any Metalhead's collection.

I must add a comment as I did see this in other reviews, "This isn't really global". As Dunn said himself, other than North America and Europe, you don't really think metal has made it in other places. Showing off the Middle East, South America, and Asia is a huge eye-opener and by definition makes Metal a global genre. Ignore these people and enjoy the show.
