If you lived in Flint, Michigan in the 1980s, you likely worked in an auto factory, and if you lived in Birmingham, England, you likely worked in an industrial setting. In defiance of tradition, groups of punk rockers and metalheads in these respective cities created a new sound, that was too punk for metalheads and too heavy for punks. Grindcore fused the anarchistic and leftist attitudes of the UK punk scene with the speed and drunken aggression of death metal simultaneously being created in the US. The first documentary to capture the genre’s 35-year life span, SLAVE TO THE GRIND takes viewers around the world to focus on why the genre has persisted, and changed, over time.
We are pleased to welcome Dan Tobin and Digby Pearson from Earache for a post-screening Q&A.
