Its been a long time since news has surfaced on the forthcoming Slow Southern Steel documentary, produced by CT of the infamous Rwake. The film, "about underground heavy bands south of the Mason Dixon", features performances and interviews from some of the area's biggest troublemakers (like members of Eyehategod, Hank III, Kylesa, Torche, Dark Castle, Zoroaster, Weedeater, and many more) as they explore "living and growing up in the bible belt". Get familiar with the trailers below if you aren't already.
BrooklynVegan is proud to announce that we will host the exclusive Northeastern screening of Slow Southern Steel at Knitting Factory on August 13th! The screening, which will take place at 10PM, will feature FREE Jagermeister (for a limited time) as well as an appearance from the director CT. Then following the film, Knitting Factory will host performances from some of our favorite doom-y bands The Gates of Slumber, Cough, and Earthling. Tickets are on sale (admission includes the movie and the show).
