'Come On Feel The Noize'
(Ozzy Osbourne, Jimmy Page, Gene Simmons, Alice Cooper, James Hetfield, et al / DVD / NR / (2017) 2019 / MVD Visual)
Overview: Featuring exclusive, long-lost live material from rock's most iconic bands and artists, as well as all-new original interviews with the living legends themselves, this documentary is your access-all-areas backstage pass to Heavy Metal and Hard Rock history!
DVD Verdict: Fully entitled as 'Come On Feel The Noize: The Story Of How Rock Became Metal,' this hour and a half documentary is an eye-opening look into the world of Heavy Metal and how artists and fans alike quickly became "possessed with Heavy Metal"!
Directed by Jörg Sonntag and written by Thore Vollert, this German-made documentary isn't all encompassing of the genre, let's get that straight from the off, but it does give a newcomer to the fold a heads up, that's for sure!
Featuring sound bites from rockers such as James Hetfield, Dee Snider, Michael Monroe, Doro Persch, and, for some reason, a LOT of screen time and chat with James Michael (the lead singer of Sixx A.M.), at times it actually comes across like a PBS special!
That said, it does cover a lot of Heavy Metal ground throughout history and brings forth a lot of live performance clips; some of which they claim haven't been seen before!
In closing, this documentary isn't all that bad and has a nice run time, but if you want a more in-depth dive into this genre, check out the brilliant go-to 'Metal: A Headbanger's Journey' (2005) by Banger Films. This is a Widescreen Presentation (1.78:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs and comes with the Special Features of:
