Heavy: The Story of Metal (Final)

Thursday / January 24h / 8.30pm

Metal is rock’s untamed wild child. Metal is rude, crude, irreverent and irrepressibly loud. Metal is rock and roll just as it’s supposed to be, which why you love it so bad!

The forth and final episode in the Heavy Metal documentary series chronicling the history of metal from the 1960’s to present day. So far the series has traced Metals roots to the late 1960’s, looked at the threat Punk music imposed in the ‘70s and seen metal thrive in, of all places, sunny California.

Tonight’s episode takes a walk on the dark side: taking a look at Guns N’ Roses, Metallica, thrash, grunge, and seeing how the music and images of Marilyn Manson became associated with the Columbine massacre.
