‘Behind The Suit And Tie’ Documentary Peeks Behind The Metal Industry Curtain

Posted by on February 17, 2010

Behind The Suit and Tie, a long-in-the-making documentary on the metal industry, appears to finally be on the brink of release, as a six-minute trailer has been released:


The film features one-on-one interviews with many notable who’s whos of the metal scene (including many of our friends and participants in the No Label Needed series) discussing piracy, corruption and the future of the record label.

According to a press release, the 90-minute DVD will contain insight from:

  • Brian Slagel (Metal Blade Records)
  • Jason Lekberg (Epic Records)
  • Doug Keogh (Roadrunner Records)
  • Carl Severson (Ferret Music)
  • Paul Conroy (Ferret Music)
  • Ray Harkins (Century Media Records)
  • Al Dawson (Earache Records)

Commented creator/producer Robert Bolger Jr., “Unlike most music documentaries, Behind The Suit and Tie will spend more time with the people behind the labels rather than the more musician-focused approach of most music documentaries to address piracy, corruption, manipulation issues and the future of a record label.”

The DVD package is expected to be released some time in June on a label to be announced.
