Guitarist Justin Hagberg of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada-based metallers 3 INCHES OF BLOOD and his brother composed the music for a documentary called “Murder Of Couriers”. Justin states, “It’s a film about the lifestyle of bike couriers in Vancouver. One of the filmmakers, Tom MacLeod, is a long time collaborator of 3 INCHES OF BLOOD, having done our ’12:34′ video and studio reports for ‘Long Live Heavy Metal’, ‘Anthems For The Victorious’ and more.”
He adds, “This movie will be in film fests this fall. If it’s showing in your area, definitely go check it out.”
“Murder Of Couriers” tells the story of a group of bike messengers in Vancouver. This feature-length film was made by couriers, about couriers, for everybody. It gives an audience the chance to experience a lifestyle that not many get the privilege to enjoy; the love and hatred for the roads we live on, the chaos of Friday night polo and the alley-cat races, the effect of the party and poverty associated with the job, and the inevitable pitfalls associated with the lifestyle. And the individuals who endure it all. Deadly honest and shockingly beautiful, “Murder Of Couriers” is about hope in the face of adversity, passion in the face of poverty and the love within a community.
