this past week, I was flipping through Newsweek magazine and found myself in the back of the magazine (the Arts section, duh...) reading an article titled "Iraq 'n' Roll." The article was following up on the band Acrassicauda, the only Iraqi Metal band. When I read that a documentary had been filmed about them called "Heavy Metal in Baghdad," I had to look into it. I've always been a Metal fan, not a huge listener, but I definitely have a lot of respect for the genre... and let me tell you, this movie totally changed my perspective.
So if you are a music fan, I highly suggest it. You can even watch it on YouTube!
you hear that? you can watch it for FREE!
