Afghanistan is a difficult place. The never-ending American war. The Taliban. Tribal battles. The heroin trade. Suicide bombings. Yet amongst all that strife, metal music can be heard.
Rockabul is a new documentary about the rise and fall of an Afghan metal band called District Unknown, the first indigenous metal band (as far as we know, anyway) to ever come out of Afghanistan.
