So how many of you watched the Metal Evolution series on VH1 Classic the past few months? If you have, what did you think of it? If you haven’t, you’re in luck because it’s coming to DVD. In just five days actually. It will be on 3 discs and of course as one of the extras, there will be the interview Sam Dunn did on That Metal Show. I’ve liked all of Dunn and Mcfayden’s work so far and I think I will pick this up to rewatch it in it’s entirety just to see if I missed anything from the intial viewings. Metal Evolution was pretty informative even if there were some sleights or omissions in regards to specific genres. It is definitely a must have for anyone interested in the history of metal and want to have a different take then what Ian Christe did in his book Sounds of the Beast. Not to mention an update since that book ended it’s chronology at 2003. You can grab your copy at Amazon or VH1.com. Here is the press quote about it too.
“We are very excited to bring VH1’s powerful and comprehensive documentary series to music lovers and devoted metal fans on DVD and digitally for the first time ever,” said Brad Beale, director of digital video content acquisition for Amazon. “Amazon’s CreateSpace on Demand service makes it easy for networks like VH1 Classic to make the content that fans want readily available quickly and cost-effectively.”
