Metal is a music genre that brings fans together regardless of their geographical location by virtue of cathartic liberation and a sense of community.
“Saigon Metalhood” tells the story of three generations of metalheads spearheading the legitimization of the genre in Vietnam.
The soundtrack of the documentary features artists from the Vietnamese underground metal scene and aims to debunk the commonly held myth in Vietnam that the genre is nothing more than a disordered and harsh ruckus.
The film premiered in Vietnam last month and will be available for streaming around the world later this year.
