News: Noise Dosage Media Unveils Extensive Death Metal Documentary

What started out for Jon Lambert as a fun way to fill time during the pandemic quickly turned into an an extreme metal media force to be reckoned with. Lambert created Noise Dosage Media as a way to connect with the extreme metal artists who have been inspiring him for years via live zoom interviews.

As guests such as Kevin Hufnagel (Gorguts), Blake Harrison (Pig Destroyer), Will Smith (Artificial Brain), David Davidson (Revocation/Gargoyl), John McEntee (Incantation), and many more became part of his roster, he realized that he had the potential to grow this into something bigger.

Fast-forward a couple of years and well over a dozen of in-person interviews with extreme metal guests, both legendary and contemporary, and Lambert compiled hours of footage into the ultimate death metal documentary: Between Exultation and Aggression (An Extreme/Death Metal Documentary Film). Self-released on July 15, the documentary features members of Napalm Death, Cattle Decapitation, Gatecreeper, Incantation, Municipal Waste, Nuclear Assault, Midnight, Exhumed, Frozen Soul, 200 Stab Wounds, Sanguisugabogg, and more.

Of the documentary, Lambert says: “Looking back to the beginning of this project, I recall laughing hysterically (which can be found in the bloopers at the end) with Nunslaughter’s Don of The Dead as well as a motivating trip to Cleveland, Ohio with a good friend named Victor, to attend a death metal show and film a conversation with both Sanguisugabogg and 200 Stab Wounds. We hopped in a rental car and began our journey by picking each other’s brains about topics we thought would be unique and informative to cover while cranking some obnoxiously loud tunes. After our conversation, we concluded that a documentary about the evolution, culture and stories regarding extreme music would be most significant.”

He continues, “The night was filled with meeting up with friends I’ve made over the years being a part of the scene, learning curves in capturing cinematic footage, and multiple technical failures as this were something I’d never attempted before being strictly a concert photographer. Since that day, I’ve been on a mission to present something refreshing to the scene in support of the bands that have made such a massive impact on me, both personally and through my podcast.”

The main topics covered in the documentary involve deep-dives into artists’ past by discussing the initial spark that got them hooked on music, and the impact it has had on them as a person over the years. Together, Lambert and his guests divulge thoughts on diehard culture, the most rewarding aspects of operating with a DIY mentality, and prove how this style of music is a healthy form of expression, and lifestyle, even if the lyrical content may come across as negative or confrontational.

Throughout the documentary, you will recognize many well-known figures in the underground extreme metal scene such as Barney Greenway (Napalm Death), Dan Lilker (Nuclear Assault/S.O.D/Anthrax), Travis Ryan (Cattle Decapitation), John McEntee (Incantation), Tony Foresta and Ryan Waste (Municipal Waste), Trevor Peres (Obituary), Athenar (Midnight), along with various up-and-coming bands that have been forging their own mark in keeping this style of music thriving. This includes Gatecreeper, Frozen Soul, Undeath, 200 Stab Wounds, Skeletal Remains, Shadow of Intent, Bodysnatcher, Sanguisugabogg, and more.

Noise Dosage Media digs up some of the most terrifying and hilarious tour stories such as Matt Harvey (Exhumed/Gruesome) getting stuck overseas in prison over a bullet belt without an English-speaking translator, Tony Foresta’s (Municipal Waste) experience with being stuck in a bind with a bloody promoter, Chris Monroy’s (Skeletal Remains) tiring mission to find his intoxicated drummer at a festival after sharing a hefty bottle of Jack Daniel’s, and Adam Roethlisberger (Vitriol) waking up to his frantic band members being held up at gunpoint at a truck stop on tour over pennies.
