Watch Fascinating Documentary “Metal: A Headbanger’s Journey” on YouTube


Happy Saturday! It’s a beautiful sunny day, in NYC at least, and if such things make you feel like nothing more than holing up on the couch for the day, then you could do a whole lot worse than spending today in the company of 2005 documentary Metal: A Headbanger’s Journey, which has recently surfaced in its entirety on YouTube. The film is a pretty great exploration of what it means to be a metalhead, and features interviews with a load of metal luminaries, including Alice Cooper, the late Ronnie James Dio, Lemmy, Tony Iommi, Iron Maiden’s Bruce Dickinson, the frankly terrifying Gaahl of Gorgoroth, and the similarly terrifying Necrobutcher of Mayhem, who provides the film’s most memorable quote in answer to a question as to whether he has any comment on the idea that black metal is losing touch with its roots: “Yeah, I got a comment. FUCK YOU.” Watch the film in its entirety after the jump.
