From April 5, 1992 to February 29, 1996, about 14,000 were killed during the Siege of Sarajevo. Despite the violence in the area, Bruce Dickinson (Iron Maiden) and his band Skunkworks ended up playing a show in the city back in 1994. Now, that concert is being documented in a new film called “Scream for Me Sarajevo.” The documentary will hit UK theaters on April 17, with a full list of cities available at screamformesarajevo.com. Dickinson previously discussed the performance in “What Does This Button Do?”:
“We weren’t protected, there was no plan and the bullets were real, but fuck it, we went anyway. The gig was immense, intense and probably the biggest show in the world at that moment for the audience and for us. That the world didn’t really know didn’t matter. It changed the way I viewed life, death and other human beings.”
On March 2, At The Gates played a secret show at the Bastard Club in Osnabrück, Germany under the name The Burning Darkness. You can check out the three-minute documentary Twilight 13 Media’s Costin Chioreanu made about that gig below. At The Gates’ new album “To Drink From The Night Itself” will be released on May 18.
A trailer has been shared for the award-winning music documentary “Mind Over Matter.” The film, which was directed by Sébastien Paquet (“Wounded Warriors”, “Korn And The Prodigy Son”), tells the story of Brandon Mendenhall who dreamed of starting a band despite being born with cerebral palsy, a neurological condition that affects movement, coordination and balance. Mendenhall was told he would never play an instrument, but he worked hard to rehabilitate his hand with some help from members of Korn, and eventually went on to form The Mendenhall Experiment, who released their debut EP in May 2017. The group have also shared the stage with Suicide Silence, John 5, P.O.D., Prong, Smile Empty Soul, and Fear Factory as well. The movie will premiere in New York during the ReelAbilities Film Festival on March 10-14. Korn’s James “Munky” Shaffer says “[Brandon] is a big inspiration, not only for [him] but for lots of people that not only want to get into music but that want to follow their dreams in anything.”
