"Metal Evolution is VH1 Classic's top-rated 2012 series to date. The three-disc set, featuring all 11 episodes of the show hosted by noted metal aficionado, anthropologist and filmmaker Sam Dunn, crisscrosses the globe to bring viewers along on an intense journey through the genre's musical history, spanning more than four decades. Special features include an informative interview with Dunn from VH1 Classic's 'That Metal Show.'..Dunn and his partner, filmmaker Scot McFayden, based 'Metal Evolution' on the groundbreaking and much-debated 26 sub-genre 'Heavy Metal Family Tree' that details the music's fascinating and complex lineage. Using this genealogical chart as a road map, each episode unleashes the very essence of metal - beginning with Pre-Metal, traveling through Early Metal, New Wave, Glam, Thrash, Grunge, Nu Metal, Shock Rock and Power Metal and arriving at the Progressive Rock of today as the explosive series finale."- Noisecreep.com, March 22, 2012 - Thanks to RushFanForever for the headsup!
