Billy Stever’s forthcoming documentary 'Maritime Metal' is rolling ahead to begin principal photography this June. The production team is finalizing details and planning to visit 5 Canadian Maritime cities across a two-week span. To help fund the cost of production, Stever is currently running an IndieGoGo campaign, where fans can discover exclusive perks and interview clips giving a taste of what they’ll see in the finished film.
TheEastMag.com, speaking about the project, writes, "Atlantic Canada’s metal scene is a curious niche in our cultural cornucopia... (with) a near constant presence over the last several decades. Now, one fan and former music promoter is hoping to shed some light on the scene with a Maritime Metal Documentary." The feature-length film is part ‘Maritime Metal’ history and part analysis of how music scenes evolve with changes in technology. Support for the film has been pouring in from bands and metalheads across the Maritimes, from sharing the campaign on social media to donating footage, music, videos and stories for use in the finished movie. “This project keeps getting bigger and bigger, thanks to the community contributions,” says Stever.
The ‘Maritime Metal’ team has already filmed over 10 hours of content, locking down the style and narrative of the film. Among the preliminary interviews are members of (past and present): Centuries of Decay, Of Hatred Spawn, Skullfist, Mokomokai, Zaum, Deformatory, Holy Cost, Hatred Reigns, Realms of Despair, Dichotic, Tolerance, Soul Devourer, Burning Moon, Skinkeeper, Iron Giant, Uigg, and Church.
‘Maritime Metal’ will release in 2020, and is available for pre-order on IndieGoGo until June 30.

Stella McCartney sought to celebrate individuality and authenticity with the campaign by collaborating with women who are strong-willed, free-spirited and independent. As the absolute epitome of this ethos, creative visionary Grimes leads the way for the new generation of Stella McCartney icons.
True to the ethics of both Grimes and the Stella McCartney brand, innovative technology was used to minimize the environmental impact of both the packaging and scent itself, with all boxes originated from sustainable managed forests.
The images of Grimes are captured by legendary photographer Glen Luchford and are accompanied with a campaign video by Grammy-Award-winning director Melina Matsoukas.
