Heavy Metal In Baghdad Streaming For Free

Posted by on June 15, 2009

If you haven’t seen the Vice Films documentary Heavy Metal In Baghdad, you really should. Especially if you’re one of those guys who makes a Facebook page for your local band’s show and whines that it’s not enough to get signed or put on a tour.

The film follows Iraqi band Acrassicauda and the struggles that obviously come with playing our favorite abrasive, offensive (and American) style of music in their war-torn country. They literally risked their lives every time they tried to organize a show or even walk around with a Metallica shirt on. The band is now living in New Jersey and working on some demos for an upcoming release (oops, SPOILER ALERT – lulz). But seriously, watch the film below and take some stock of how lucky you are.

Thanks to our brosefs at Metal Injection for finding the free streaming goodness.
