Brutal Australia is a documentary into the contemporary Australian metal scene. The projects' myspace page discusses Brutal Australia:

"The heavy music scene has undergone a massive transformation in recent years with an influx of amazing bands, new styles, a new image and an incredible level of acceptance. Now is Australia’s time! The revolution has begun! What were once just a bunch of underground bands rocking out to an empty room at their local pub are now outselling some of Australia's biggest pop stars in both ticket and album sales. Brutal Australia is an in depth documentary showing the scene from the bands perspective, with interviews from the most influential Metal, Hardcore, Metalcore, Hard Rock, Death Metal and Tech bands in the country. This film is a must see for not only all heavy music fans, but also those that may not understand the music, the people or the lifestyle."

Directed by Will Gaffney and produced by Raw Sound Industries, Brutal Australia will see release sometime in November of this year, and will feature Parkway Drive, I Killed The Prom Queen, Sunk Loto, Karnivool, Daysend, Psycroptic, and Five Star Prison Cell. You can visit the projects' Myspace page or Brutal Australia's offical website for more information.
