A globe-spanning and superior sequel to the wildly successful METAL: A HEADBANGER'S JOURNEY, continuing that film's anthropological exploration of the sprawling underground tribe of heavy metal fans.

This time we follow metal anthropologist Sam Dunn across five continents as he explores the nuances and social impact of metal culture in Brazil, Indonesia, China, India, Israel, Iran and elsewhere.

Along the way Sam encounters several stalwarts of the scene, including metal legends such as Metallica, Sepultura and Iron Maiden who continue to gather the faithful in ever-expanding locations. The film places particular emphasis on the complex role of metal culture within globalization, and also as a form of resistance within repressive societies.

Director: Sam Dunn, Scot McFayden
