PSYCHONAUT – To Be Featured In ‘The History Of Metal In Australia’ Film


Animus Industries is producing a feature length documentary about the history of Heavy Metal music in Australia. The film will trace the origins of metal in Australia and explore this ever-evolving genre. From grind-core, thrash, death metal, black metal, hardcore, doom, melodic metal, sludge, power metal and the many more sub genre’s that exist Metal Down Under will cover it all.

It will feature top Aussie metal names: PSYCHONAUT, BLOOD DUSTER, PEGAZUS and many more!!


The history of metal in Australia has never been fully told and this film attempts to rectify that. Rather than a back-stage interview film with a bit of live footage in between, Metal Down Under will tell the story of Aussie metal through formal interviews, archival, animation, candid observation-style footage and first person narration.

The film will be accompanied by an interactive website that will document the production of the film as well as profile and publicise many of the bands and identities involved in Heavy Metal. Released in conjunction with the documentary DVD will be a bonus DVD of music videos, interviews and extended material as well as a compilation CD.

More details to be revealed soon along with an official release date.
