Swedish Hard Rock/Metal Documentary To Arrive In The Spring

"Så Jävla Metal" (Swedish for "So Fucking Metal") is a documentary about Swedish hard rock and metal. The film tells the story of the genre's birth and development in Sweden, from the late Sixties/early Seventies up until now. The film is being produced by Stealing Shots Film. The director of the film is Yasin Hillborg, who has directed music videos for ENTOMBED and LITHIUM, among others. The film will feature the most influential bands and artists from the hard rock/metal scene in Sweden. In addition there will be a number of international artists who will give their views on Swedish metal.

Commented Yasin: "We have come half-way through shooting. We have done a bunch of great interviews and we will reveal the truth of matters that have been under the surface for far too long."

The film is scheduled for a spring 2007 release. In the meantime, you can visit the project's official web site, www.sajavlametal.com, where it also is possible to write in the guestbook and ask questions or make suggestions with regards to which bands or topics the film should bring to light.
