‘Heavy Metal – Louder Than Life’ Documentary To Receive DVD Release In May –

Fremantle Home Entertainment has announced the May 22, 2006 U.K. release of "Heavy Metal – Louder Than Life" (cover), the definitive metal documentary. This two-disc DVD package provides a no-stone unturned account for the most enduring form of popular music the world has ever known.

Created by award-winning duo of director Dick Carruthers (LED ZEPPELIN, AEROSMITH, THE WHITE STRIPES) and producer Jim Parsons (MTV "Headbanger's Ball", "New Kings Of Rock 'n' Roll", "Re:covered"), "Heavy Metal – Louder Than Life" is described in a press release as "a long-overdue film that unravels the music, the myths and the mayhem."

"Heavy Metal – Louder Than Life" is a film that looks at what made metal, how it grew and how it has transcended fashion, misunderstanding, ridicule and ignorance. It is dedicated to the memory of Darrell "Dimebag" Abbott (PANTERA, DAMAGEPLAN) who was murdered on stage on December 8, 2004, and features testimonials on his contribution and influence on the metal genre. With a total run time at over four hours, including special features, this two-disc DVD set will become a benchmark for the hardcore metal fan.

Extras include:

* "Dee On Metal"… The world of metal explained by TWISTED SISTER frontman Dee Snider
* "Mystery Headbanger"… Myths and truths of a true metalhead exposed.
* "Albums Testimonials"… A guide to the greatest and most essential albums of all time
* METAL SKOOL… The latest L.A. hair band that are bringing metal back to Sunset Strip, more SPINAL TAP than SPINAL TAP and fortunately more talented than BAD NEWS
* Metal Tales… Stories from the bands, journalists and producers
* The Metal Timeline
* Subtitles & Commentary… Director Dick Carruthers and producer Jim Parsons add a personal insight into the making of "Louder Than Life"
