In 2011 Banger Films released the biggest-ever series on the history of heavy metal and hard rock, Metal Evolution. Based on Banger’s groundbreaking “Heavy Metal Family Tree,” the series explored over 40 years of metal history – from Early Metal and Shock Rock to Thrash and Nu Metal. Following metalhead-turned-anthropologist Sam Dunn, Metal Evolution took viewers on an unprecedented journey to over 30 countries on 4 continents to interview 300 of metal’s most respected musicians including Alice Cooper, Bruce Dickinson, Slash, Lemmy, Lars Ulrich, Tom Morello and members of Van Halen, Deep Purple, Slayer, Lamb of God and many more. The series was a huge success, hitting #1 on VH1 Classic (US) and MuchMore (Canada), and broadcasting on networks in the United Kingdom, Norway, Germany, Australia, New Zealand, Sweden, Finland, Belgium, Brazil, India and elsewhere.
