The Banshee Labyrinth
29 - 35 Niddry Street, EH1 1LG Edinburgh, United Kingdom
If you lived in Flint Michigan, USA in the 80s, you likely worked in an auto factory. If you lived in Birmingham, England in the 80s, you likely worked in an industrial setting. If you were a teenager in either of these cities during those years, you either accepted your fate or broke the mold. In defiance of tradition, groups of punk rockers and metal-heads in these respective cities created a new sound, and consequently a new genre of music, that was too punk for metal-heads, and too heavy for punks.
Slave To The Grind is the first documentary on Grindcore to capture the genre's 35 year life span. The film takes you to Japan, the United States, UK, Australia, Singapore, Finland and Sweden to discuss why the genre has persisted, and changed, over time.
