Smithsonian: National Museum of the American Indian has cleared the new documentary REZ METAL, and is available for free streaming until November 18th. This features my boyz from Window Rock, I Don’t Konform, and it is really something to see.
For me, personally, a lot of metal does not make sense anymore. The White Boy rage has not translated well, and the folks still going to those shows…. all have a similar ilk. There is a lot of anger in America, and most of the White Variety is Hateful, Hate Filled, and Problematic to say the least. BUT – Native Rage? Native Rage makes sense, and has never really stopped. Nor will it until we make some major changes in our society.
If the music of metal is the medium of rage and anger and unrest, then Rez Metal has something to say, where as the White Brown Shirts are unwelcome.
Do yourself a favor…..
Based on the Book: Rez Metal: Inside the Navajo Nation Heavy Metal Scene
