Slipknot and Black Sabbath Scenes To Premiere At HMA17

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.

Heavy Music Awards 2017 Finalists Announced

The finalists of the Heavy Music Awards 2017 have been announced.

Following an intensive period of voting by more than 300 of the music industry’s leading lights, the final seven for each category at the inaugural Heavy Music Awards have been unveiled.

Spread across ten categories, the finalists represent the heavy music industry’s favourite artists, albums, album covers, photographers, producers, venues and festivals for the calendar year of 2016 – taking in everything from undisputed heavyweights to the very freshest artists on the scene.

HMAs co-founder Dave Bradley said, “We are so excited to see that the industry has produced shortlists that span the vast breadth of the heavy music landscape.

“Beyond the seven finalists in each category, the judges produced a staggeringly comprehensive list of nominees – almost 150 individuals were nominated for Best Photographer, while a similar number were put forward for Best Producer. A huge testament to the strength in depth currently on offer across this amazing scene.

“Rock and metal fans are among the most loyal and well-informed music lovers on the planet, so it comes as no surprise to see such an eclectic mix of the absolute highest quality. Every one of these finalists would be a worthy winner – but it’s up to the public to decide who that should be!”
