Metal Evolution - VH1 Documentary Series

Finally, a great show about Heavy Metal called Metal Evolution and the storied history about where it really came from. VH1, you are alright in our books now and we cannot wait for the Thrash Metal show on December 31st. Our only gripe is that with the series listing, nothing is covered when it comes to Death or Black Metal? C'mon folks, this is a huge area to mine or maybe the suits over at Viacom were a bit nervous about talking to church burners and legions of the damned.

Nov 11: Pre Metal
Nov 19: Early Metal US
Dec 3: Early Metal UK
Dec 10: New Wave Of British Heavy Metal
Dec 17: Glam
Dec 31: Thrash
Jan 7: Grunge
Jan 14: Nu Metal
Jan 21: Shock Rock
Jan 28: Power Metal
Feb 4: Progressive Metal

About Metal Evolution:

Metal Evolution presents 11 episodes based on the much-debated Metal History "family tree" originally shown in Headbanger's Journey. This 24 sub-genre genealogical chart reveals the vast complex progeny of heavy metal--from Early Metal and Shock Rock to Thrash, from Progressive Metal to Grunge and Nu Metal. Using the chart as his road map, our host, metalhead turned anthropologist Sam Dunn, will crisscross the globe in search of the very essence of Metal, from bars and back alleys to the biggest open air festivals.
