Do you love metal enough to shave Ozzie Osborne's name into your chest hair? If so, see Penelope Spheens' (Wayne's World, The Decline of Western Civilisation), We Sold Our Souls for Rock and Roll...twice! This sweat and beer soaked, mud-caked and blood stained concert rockumentary recounts the brief history of Ozzfest, The Black Sabbath vocalists' annual roadshow that takes metal mayhem on a tour across an unsuspecting USA. In addition to skull crushing performances by Slayer, Fear, Rob Zombie, Godsmack, Primus, Slipknot. System of a Down and of course, chief agents of destruction, Black Sabbath this hilarious (in the Spinal Tap vein), frightening, ribald, and sometimes violent documentary reveals the inner workings of a massive concert event and the egos involved. Fans scaling razor wire and sustaining wounds requiring emergency surgery, to mosh to their favourite acts, bouncers retrieving lost singers amidst flying fists in rabid crowds, topless groupies riding bucking bulls and Ozzie, ringmaster of an over-amped satanic circus, complete with actual freaks. You have been warned.
