Metal From Hellas – Documentary

05 Jan

I found a very interesting documentary titled METAL FROM HELLAS -ΝΤΟΚΥΜΑΝΤΕΡ.
It is directed by Nikos Papakostas (which I believe was a member of the heavy metal band
Vice Human).
Although I am not a great fan of heavy metal, I believe it is good to have the point of view of
those Greek musicians that did their best for the music genre they love.
The documentary includes interviews with members from bands of the 80’s, 90’s and 00’s.
Unfortunately (for those who don’t speak the language) it is in Greek but it features
videos and interesting stuff.
With this opportunity I upload here a video of the band Spitfire playing live in Rodon Club
someday during October 1991:

Spitfire – Danger in the world

It was nice to see also Angelo Perlepes, a great guitar player, with whom I haven’t met for years.
Here is a video taken from the tv show Jammin back in 2000:

Angelo Perlepes’ Mystery – Worship the Night

Now, I think music is a matter of taste, so I believe that this documentary should be watched even
by the people who are not exactly into Heavy Metal.
On the other hand, I am sure the metal fans will appreciate it.

Congratulations for this very interesting try.

    I watched the whole documentary. The story goes fine to the 80’s, the references to bands like Flames are quite interesting. Nevertheless, the documentary ignores some very important facts for the 90’s, as the greek black metal scene which is is regarded as a pioneer of the genre along with the Norwegian one. Intentionally (?) says nothing about Nightfall which was the very first greek metal band to sign up to foreign label etc.. But still I think it’s an interesting effort.

    I have seen it, translated in real-time by a friend of mine. It’s a really nice movie, which perfectly reaches its goal of showing us the Greek Heavy Metal & Rock scene from the very beginning. There’s both social and musical taste here, I suggest the producers to release this movie on dvd, with Italian or (better) English subtitles.
