The DVD was released in Australia on August 22nd and spent its first 7 weeks lodged in the ARIA Music DVD Charts and was met with 4-star reviews in Rolling Stone and Blunt Magazines as well as many more favorable reviews. You can check out some of the great words written on the film here:

Since the late 1970’s a thriving underground scene of extreme music has continued to evolve in Australia. Metal Down Under takes a look at the bands, people and events that have shaped this unique slice of Australian history.

More than just the music, we meet the characters that make metal in Australia what it is today. From promoters, radio hosts and magazine editors, to band members and extreme fans, Metal Down Under introduces you to a world you either didn’t want to know existed, or have been a part of all your life.
