Critic Reviews for Death Metal Angola

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (13) | Rotten (1)

  • What we have here is a rather sweet story of the plan to hold Angola's first national rock concert in its bombed-out, rubble-strewn, second-largest city, Huambo.

    November 20, 2014 | Full Review…
  • Director Jeremy Xido pays attention to the music only peripherally, without providing cultural context to supplement the history, and the country's demotic kuduro genre gets only a couple of passing references.

    November 7, 2014 | Full Review…
  • The genre's aggressive qualities aren't just a coping mechanism, but also a means of recontextualizing personal and national traumas.

    November 5, 2014 | Full Review…
  • An upbeat chronicle of very hard rock in a very hard place, Death Metal Angola is one of the livelier and more enticingly exotic additions to the ever-burgeoning music-documentary sub-genre.

    October 24, 2014 | Full Review…
  • I've seen more than enough documentaries about extreme metal that mythologize violent, antisocial behavior; this one shows people using harsh, aggressive music to build a positive community.

    May 1, 2014 | Full Review…
  • Illuminates a corner of the world you've never seen and shows you why you should care. Even angry music about blood and death can be hopeful given the right setting.
