Trailer For Upcoming Documentary On Vietnam’s Metal Scene Up Now – Go Support!

Saigon Metalhood tells the story of the turbulent origins of Vietnamese heavy metal through to the contemporary struggles of the scene today. The story is recounted by three generations of Vietnamese metalheads who each represent the past, present and future of Saigonese metal, whose lives and experiences help to explain why heavy metal never took off in Vietnam in comparison to neighbours like Indonesia, Thailand and the Philippines. War, politics, infighting, addiction, and an indifferent, often hostile society all contribute to the woes of the metal community in Vietnam, but in the words of the brooding, neck-tattooed Vietnamese extreme metal pioneer Trung Loki, “people don’t care about us… and we don’t even care about them.” is an underground Asian music news website created for the sole purpose of supporting our own world.
