There's Something About Metal & Travlers at the Edge of Time
THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT METAL

Director: Stuart O'Rourke (Finland, Australia 2009, 52min)

The unsigned band Baton Rogue Morgue are in the process of recording their third album and have high hopes.  Band members Domino De La Rogue and Lee Angel Morgue open the door to their Heavy Metal lifestyle.  They travel to two Metal music festivals to party hard and gain some inspiration for their new album.  At the festivals we meet the fans and chat to the lineup of bands in an attempt to understand why Metal music has taken such a grip on this nation.

Finland. A country of extremes.  The repressive winters and vast dramatic landscapes give way to wild nights of drinking and a powerful appreciation of music.  Metal music in Finland is not a sub culture, it is part of the mainstream.




TRAVELERS AT THE EDGE OF TIME: Blind Guardian

Editor: Andreas Fiekers (GERMANY 2011, 45 min)

This documentary follows Germany's legendary Power Metal band BLIND GUARDIAN through an unfinished cycle of their remarkable career up to now.  Showcasing an intimate insight throughout the massive amount of events the musicians had to face since Summer 2009, the film begins abruptly during the production for their breathtaking opus At The Edge Of Time when the band begins orchestra recordings at the Rudolfinum in Prague.  During the fragile act of creating real music, BLIND GUARDIAN are suddenly confronted with the virtual reality of a computer game called Sacred 2.  While tasting the sweetness of having accomplished one mission, another one immediately starts with dreary rehearsals in the "Twilight Hall" before the band heads off  to spread their mystical message to thousands of enthusiastic bards on another world tour.

We will meet an unmasked Hansi Kürsch, André Olbrich, Marcus Siepen, Frederik Ehmke, and their crew members through the many private on-the-road & behind-the-scenes encounters.  Fans will witness BLIND GUARDIAN take part in their never-ending quest for perfection beyond the musical aspects when cameras follow the band onto different stages from the first indoor shows to subsequent outdoor shows on the "Sacred World and Songs Divine Tour."  Travelers At The Edge Of Time then takes on a new voyage when the group gets back to the studio and starts working on its lifetime project: the orchestral album.  Both completion of this film project and the touring cycle for the latest album are not yet complete, proving only one thing: There is no real beginning, nor there is a real ending
