FULL DESCRIPTION

Breaking a Monster chronicles the rise of African-American, teenage speed-metal band Unlocking the Truth. Beginning when the members are in 7th grade, their high-energy performances win them both fans and critical acclaim, and they soon find themselves on the radar of megacorporation Sony Entertainment. Under the wing of a 70 year old industry veteran, the trio are guided towards a 1.8 million dollar record deal  but not before a dubious introduction into the shadier sides of the industry. What makes their story interesting is not so much the music or rags-to-riches success story, but rather the push-pull dynamics between the trio s pure love for their craft, and high stakes corporate interests.
