About the Movie

International Award winning Death Metal Angola follows a loving Angolan couple, Sonia and Wilker, whose love for death metal music is bringing hope to the town and children of Huambo, and Angola as a country. The devastating reality of Angola’s history of wars, and civil unrest has left the country’s people torn, broken, and starving for something to give them peace. Sonia, and Wilker’s dream to put on the first national rock festival ignites the emotions of the Angolan people, and helps them heal from the war stricken path Angola has left behind. This engaging reality of Angola touches the heart of the viewer, and sheds new light on a music genre that is not well understood.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: What we have here is a rather sweet story of the plan to hold Angola's first national rock concert in its bombed-out, rubble-strewn, second-largest city, Huambo. – Anita Gates, New York Times, Nov 20, 2014

Fresh: An upbeat chronicle of very hard rock in a very hard place, Death Metal Angola is one of the livelier and more enticingly exotic additions to the ever-burgeoning music-documentary sub-genre. – Neil Young, Hollywood Reporter, Oct 24, 2014

Fresh: The genre's aggressive qualities aren't just a coping mechanism, but also a means of recontextualizing personal and national traumas. – Michael Nordine, Village Voice, Nov 5, 2014

Fresh: I've seen more than enough documentaries about extreme metal that mythologize violent, antisocial behavior; this one shows people using harsh, aggressive music to build a positive community. – Leor Galil, Chicago Reader, May 1, 2014

Customer Reviews


This is an incredible film - seeing the pain of war give birth to hope through music is nothing short of inspiring.

Death Metal Angola - Outstanding

Put together an orphanage with 55 boys and an incredible loving couple who not only help with survival after 40 years of civil war and unrest but also champion the support for very heavy metal music as a key to resilience and healing. Add a nail biting challenge of staging the first ever national rock concert in the midst of civil dysfunction. And add some incredible cinematography. You get a love story, a thriller, and a concert film all in one. Watch this one. You will be surprised and delighted.
