Anthropology of Metal by Sam Dunn

by Bob » Sat Aug 13, 2016 9:10 pm

Just turned on to his documentaries, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sam_Dunn. A bit dated now since the first one. Start here: https://youtu.be/VXtsDoAreBk

I don't understand it, BUT I know I like it!

I wonder if Sam ever attended 70K?

He did his premier documentary movie back in 2005, when Wacken was only 40K, not the current 80K. Another in 2008 where he shows Islamic Metal. https://youtu.be/X9vVZ6Zxrho (no Babymetal yet, LOL) Then a full on series with Metal Evolution, (http://www.bangerfilms.com/films/metal-evolution/) and The Lost Episode: Extreme Metal, https://youtu.be/MoHOgfEoTlc. Is this intro Vader? https://youtu.be/KITVOy-jUmc?t=1m54s

He also did the Iron Maiden documentary a few years back (Flight 666). I've seen him a couple times at shows in T.O. over the years, and shook his hand once, seems like a really nice guy. He's trying to start up a streaming, all-metal channel called Banger TV. If you look up their facebook or youtube pages they keep putting out a lot of regular content. They were doing a bunch of episodes called "Lock Horns" where they were updating some of the band lists in the metal family tree as well as adding new branches (folk metal for example). They've been filming at festivals over the summer as well. They were filming stuff for a feature on one of the big festivals in Iceland and they just did a bunch of filming for a new feature/episode on Wacken.

Would be cool if they ever did some kind of episode/feature about 70K.

How weird that I actually started watching the Evolution series this weekend.

My GF & I chewed through 10 episodes on Sunday afternoon,

thought it was really cool & in-depth.

Sam Dunn says he would love to go on 70000 Tons of Metal someday, maybe do a feature with BangerTV. https://youtu.be/GJSssaNmG_o?t=49m49s

Sam rules! He has a couple of kids these days so I doubt he would hit up the cruise. Although 70000 tons would be an interesting place to get material for his documentaries. Last year having 72 different countries the cruise is the perfect sample of the global metal community.

I've run into him several times out and about in Toronto. I used to work a couple of offices away from Banger studio.
