Digbeth: Home of Metal
Birmingham and the Black Country are responsible for Heavy Metal, a genre of music loved the world over, but nothing really marks one of our region’s most prolific cultural exports. Digbeth-based Capsule changed all that with their Home of Metal project and exhibition.
Home of Metal is a celebration of the music of local favourites Black Sabbath (fun fact: Ozzy Osborne used to work in a Digbeth abattoir), Judas Priest, and others, and thanks to a recent grant of £450,000 from Arts Council England, Capsule are now able to take the project to a global audience.
