Special live recordings of Black Sabbath and Slipknot which have never been seen before in public are to be screened at the Heavy Music Awards 2017.
A total of six songs taken from Black Sabbath’s The End tour and Slipknot’s Knotfest Mexico will be shown at the House of Vans cinema at HMA17 on August 24.
Slipknot’s clips are part of a new 90 minute documentary about the band entitled Day Of The Gusano which is to be premiered in more than a thousand screens across the world as a ‘one night only’ cinematic spectacle on September 6, 2017.
Talking about the film, Slipknot’s M.Shawn Crahan, aka ‘Clown’, said: “Slipknot still has dreams for itself. Finally playing Mexico was one of them. It’s been a surreal life of rock and roll for Slipknot and the fact that the dreams still go on for us is simply incredible. Thank you.”
Black Sabbath’s End Of The End – from which the excerpts are to be shown at the HMAs – brings fans up close and personal with the story of the final, emotionally-charged concert, in which the band perform hits including Iron Man, Paranoid, War Pigs and many more. The film also joins Sabbath in the studio as they deliver unique and exclusive performances of some of their favourite songs not played on the tour, and catch an intimate glimpse into the band’s world; the music, relationships and banter, alongside personal anecdotes.
Speaking about the film Ozzy Osborne said: “What a journey we’ve all had. It’s fucking amazing”. This is the final word from the greatest heavy metal band of all time.”
End Of The End is to be shown for one night only in mrs than 1,500 cinemas worldwide on September 28, 2017.
Both films will be released in other formats at a later date and are distributed by Eagle Rock Entertainment.
