HELP FUND A METAL EVOLUTION “EXTREME METAL” EPISODE THROUGH INDIEGOGO
Last year’s Metal Evolution series that aired on VH1 Classic in the U.S. (and other networks across the world) was met with widespread critical acclaim, with just one notable complaint: the series didn’t spend enough time focusing on black metal, death metal, grindcore, or the myriad other sub-genres that are so near and dear to our hearts and can be grouped under the general umbrella of “Extreme Metal.” Now you can help “The Lost Episode” on Extreme Metal become a reality.
Series director Sam Dunn is certainly no stranger to those genres — as you know if you’ve watched his groundbreaking documentary Metal: A Headbanger’s Journey (featuring the best interview ever in the history of metal interviews) — but some of the networks that aired Metal Evolution deemed them “too extreme,” forcing him to temporarily shelve the episode. In an effort to turn “The Lost Episode” into a reality, Dunn and his company Banger Films have launched an IndieGoGo campaign to help raise the funds needed to produce, shoot, edit and release it.
As we’ve come to expect from Kickstarter, IndieGoGo, etc campaigns, there are several different contribution levels, each with a wide range of perks ranging from exclusive merchandise to days on set to personalized thank yous from bands that appear in the episode. As with all of Dunn’s work, rest assured the final result will be of the highest quality. And hey, among other things, you can even receive a MetalSucks t-shirt for donating.
