Storyline

'WACKEN 3D - louder than hell', a no holds barred exploration of the legendary Wacken Open Air, the biggest heavy metal festival of the world, will shoot in July and August this year.

Realistic Portrayal of the World's Biggest Heavy Metal Festival
21 March 2015 | by basemnt-dwellrSee all my reviews

Welcome to the holy land of Wacken!

The movie is not a live recording of a concert, but rather a documentary about the world's biggest heavy metal festival. Every year, about 75,000 metal fans from all over the world travel to Wacken, a small village in northern Germany, to listen to more than 100 famous and not so famous bands.

The movie includes interviews with a couple of metal fans and some of the musicians, and of course there is also the music. The filmmakers managed to capture the atmosphere perfectly. Everybody is peaceful, in good spirits, and having lots of fun during the four days of the festival.

I think all those metal fans who have been to Wacken or are planning to go there should see the movie. However, not just them, but also everybody else who wants to know what Wacken is like, should see it. Great movie! And now that I've watched it, I can hardly wait till July 30, when this year's festival starts.
