    • Synopsis
    • To depict the life and work of Alberto Zamarbide, V8's vocalist, means to draw an arch that goes from the loneliness of the very first heavy metal fans, misunderstood and resisted during the last dictatorship, to the growing epic of the "Brigadas Metalicas". And this documentary spans through the entire circuit, which is now 30 years old after the inaugural landmark concert of V8 at the BARock Festival in 1982, which started a certain form of metal struggle carried out at the time by a group of musicians that would cross some boundaries and challenge their time. From hordes calling for "Destruction" to the formation and influence of LOGOS as icons of latinamerican White Metal, Alberto and his mates - including the great Ricardo Iorio - tell the story they star in, which contains everything that is iconic about the genre (headbanging, heavy drugs, blood, leather and pins) but also the unimaginable: diet juice, sunny Miami, a concert in a church, God on a spotlight." - Catalogue Mar del Plata International Film Festival
