Such Hawks Such HoundsSuch Hawks Such Hounds explores the music and musicians of the American hard rock underground circa 1970-2007, focusing on the psychedelic and '70s proto-metal-derived styles that have in recent years formed a rich body of unclassifiable sounds.

This is a great documentary film by John Srebalus about heavy music of USA. Music , interviews, live and some of the heavy metal, stoner, doom and drone legends from 1970 till now. More than one hour of great music, historic point of views, attitude and great people.

Such Hawks, Such Hounds is a testament to the vitality of rock music. Relying only marginally on nostalgia, it says that at any point in history, the music being made is as worthy of attention as that of times past. It’s an introduction to an under-heralded sub-genre and a realization of its cinematic possibilities.

If you're a diehard fan of this kind d of music, hard/stoner/ doom/ metal/BlackSabbathripoff/rock, you'll get to see some cool interviews with some key figures, particularly Matt Pike and Wino, but if you're not a fan this thing is a huge turnoff, a meandering failure trying to trace the history of the heavy riff.

"House, Trance and Techno" are "Symphonies"?!!? Anything you can compose in real-time while tripping on ecstasy is NOT a Symphony!

Mario Lalli, "there are things that you can do with a clean reverb tone that are so evil and dark that it makes Black Sabbath sound like Peggy Lee." But in the next sequence its Mario Lalli jamming to a rif that's so weak that it would have been rejected by Sabbath instantly. I've seen Fatso Johnson too many times to count out here in the desert...and they don't deserve to lick Tony Iomi & Geezer Butlers boots....or maybe that's exactly what they deserve to be doing. LAME!!!

Pretty good except they successfully sidestepped RUSH.. back in 1975 they had "Anthem" and "Bytor and the Snowdog" then '76 "Bastille Day" and "The Necromancer" -Heavy stoner rock for sure.. Then of course "2112" and 1977's "Cygnus.. X1" There were many more after this like Freewill , Tom Sawyer, Killer Instinct, and stuff...but I can see how the Keyboards might have been a turning point for the band as far as relating to the type of music featured in this Doc.. At least ~Yes~ got a little love.

Then it was sex, drugs and rock and roll. Today it's aids, crack and techno.

What the hell went wrong?
