Sam Dunn is probably one of those characters that any Heavy Metal fanatic, irrespective of sub-genre preferences, should be aware of. Creator of the acclaimed documentaries “Metal: A Headbanger’s Journey” and “Global Metal”, that encompassed the Heavy Metal familia across different cultures, in all corners of the planet, “Metal Evolution” was started in order to satiate the massive positive feedback generated in the wake of MAHJ. Global Metal addresses the topic of the “Heavy Metal family tree” that was also made popular by MAHJ.

Metal Evolution has aired an extensive trailer of the “Lost Episode” which covers some co-Director Dunn’s favourite sub-genres, ie., Death Metal, Grindcore and Black Metal. The episode is a resultant of massive fan appeal and extensive fundraisers. The following message was issued on the initiative’s website, by the creators:


“After two successful crowdfunding campaigns Sam and the Banger crew embarked on one last journey across five countries and two continents, meeting with extreme metal stalwarts like Mantas, Tom G. Warrior, Martin Eric Ain, Fenriz, Silenoz, Scott Burns, John Tardy, Terry Butler and many others. Metal Evolution: Extreme Metal is the definitive documentary episode exploring the musical history of metal’s most underground sub-genre. Featuring candid interviews, never-before-seen archival material, rare music clips and travel footage from around the world, the episode will bring you closer to the personalities and historic locations of Extreme Metal than ever before. This episode will give testament to metal’s most misunderstood sub-genre, thrilling both die-hard metalheads and the general music lovers alike.”
