Epic in its undertaking, Metal Down Under captures the past, present and future of the Australian metal scene and condenses it into three hours of riveting, essential viewing.

Since the late 1970's a thriving underground scene of extreme music has continued to evolve in Australia. From grind-core, thrash, death metal, black metal, hardcore, doom, melodic metal, sludge, power metal and the many more sub genre's that exist, Metal Down Under traverses the full spectrum and takes a look at the bands, people and events that shaped this unique slice of Australian history

More than just the music, we meet the characters that make metal in Australia what it is today. From promoters, radio hosts and magazine editors, to band members and extreme fans, Metal Down Under introduces you to a world you either didn't want to know existed or have been a part of all your life.

Featuring over 40 exclusive interviews as well as rare archive footage and photographs from Metal For The Brain, Metal For Melbourne, The Big Day Out, SBS, music videos, live concerts and much more!

The brainchild of lifelong metal fan and film maker Nick Calpakdjian. Nick spent two long years traveling the country interviewing the who's who of the Australian scene. With massive support, some crowd funding and donations, the mammoth project has finally been completed and is ready to share with Australian metal fans and people everywhere!

Written and Directed by Nick Calpakdjian, Produced by Animus Industries and with Cinematography by Adrian Price, Metal Down Under is presented as three 55 minute episodes and comes with a bunch of extras. Available on DVD and as a stream on iTunes

Metal Down Under will be released on August 22 via MGM

Pre orders are now available. DVD = $30 or DVD/T-shirt Bundle = $50 www.metaldownunder.com
