Metal Missionaries The Documentary



New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Metal Missionaries brings you into conversations with some of Christian music's most extreme artists, so you can get a firsthand feel for the scene and answer some questions or doubts for yourself.

Metal Missionaries The Documentary, the first full-length documentary about the extreme Christian Metal scene, will be released on September 15th,2017 with pre-orders beginning September 1st, 2017. You'll see that although their music may be aggressive and they may not look like Christians, their hearts burst with the Holy Spirit. They don't need a label or a collar to know who they are; they are missionaries who take their faith not into the deepest reaches of the jungle but into dim, dirty rock clubs and dusty music festivals night after night to wash the crowds clad in black t-shirts and denim in a sonic flood of God's unfailing love for them.

The genre of Christian heavy metal is no longer characterized by Stryper's trademark yellow-and-black spandex. Instead, it's found on the stages of the wildly popular Warped Tour, it's featured in the pages of secular music magazines like AP and Guitar World, it draws thousands of fans into rural Illinois every year for the Cornerstone Festival, and its bands garner thunderous applause from hard rockers at events like "The Revolver Golden Gods Awards." And, while the scene has changed from eyeliner and leather to bushy beards and breakdowns, the musical message has remained the same: God's love for us knows no bounds and the free gift of grace is spoken in every language. That includes the language of distorted Marshall Stacks that invite those who hear to worship Him with shouts of praise and swirling circle pits.

Curiously enough, there might be enough similarities to refute the fact that these two ideas cannot coexist within the same universe. Death, pain, and suffering are all themes that metal musicians embrace, while Christianity was formed on the basis of its original followers being persecuted and killed for following a savior who gave his blood and died for our sins. So which is it? Do Christianity and heavy metal mix together like oil and water? Or is Christianity as metal as it gets?
Metal Missionaries The Documentary incorporates live concert footage, one on one interviews with band members (secular and non-secular) as well as archive footage and off camera narration. The film transports the viewers back stage behind the scenes on order to get an in-depth look into the hearts and minds of extreme Christian metal musicians from unsigned bands traversing the globe in vans to major label acts riding in luxury buses the messages are the same.
