Heavy Metal In Baghdad

Last night, me and a couple of friends attended a free screening of Heavy Metal In Baghdad at the Metro. It was filmed and financed by Vice Magazine. The documentary is about Accrasicauda, Iraq's only heavy metal band. Vice spent a few days with the band, filming their day to day lives and the hardships of being in a heavy metal band in post-Saddam Iraq. Anger, hatred, frustration and despair barely describe the predicament of these guys. This is a real eye opener and a must see for any metal fan.
