Slow Southern Steel with Hail Hornet and ZoroasterFebruary 8, 2012
If you’re in the mood for a great documentary about some loud metal, head over to Strange Matter on Thursday, Feb. 9 for a screening of “Slow Southern Steel,” a film about heavy music in the modern American South, as told by the very people who have created this music during the last two decades.
Shot in back alleys, parking lots, and the seedy green rooms of the dirtiest clubs that the Bible Belt failed to snuff out, these diehard musicians discuss their love of music and the south, as well as the difficulties, contradictions, and insanity that haunt every southern artist. There are no illusions here, no apologies, no distractions – only the straight truth as told by those who would know the difference. Narrated by the notorious Dixie Dave Collins, Slow Southern Steel is an authentic and honest and thorough look at one of the most remarkable music communities ever spawned on the continent.
