What If A Metal Drummer Went Deaf: The Movie That Every Metalhead Should Watch

In the past decade, metal music has become more and more mainstream and metalheads have been enjoying numerous content created just for them. For instance, TV and radio shows have increased in number, and biographical films about bands’ careers, such as Mötley Crüe’s ‘The Dirt,’ have been attracting more attention.

However, aside from biographical films, there are also others that have been created not only for metalheads but for the general audience. One such film is ‘Sound of Metal‘ which was released in December 2020. The film tells the story of the talented punk-metal drummer Ruben who starts experiencing hearing loss while performing at a one-night gig.

How To Watch ‘Sound Of Metal’ On The Internet?

The film is currently streaming on the Amazon Prime platform and is not available on any other online service. If we look at the story that the film wanted to give the audience: Sound Of Metal reflects perfectly the health risks of being on stage every night instead of glamorizing the life of a rockstar. The deterioration of Ruben’s hearing and how his condition affects his physical and mental health and pushes him alcohol and drug abuse show the dark side of the metal scene.

As we don’t want to spoil the rest of the movie for you, the last thing that we’ll say is that this is a movie every metalhead should watch. ‘Sound of Metal’ deals with a lot of issues such as drug addiction, the risk of hearing loss for musicians, superficial relationships and communities, and many more.
