"Get Thrashed: The Story of Thrash Metal"; Complete Film
«Get Thrashed» journey begins in the early 80s, where Metallica and
several other bands laid the groundwork for what would become a
lasting impression on the face of heavy metal music. These bands
helped ignite local scenes in Los Angeles, the Bay area of Northern
California and New York City, which helped fuel a worldwide thrash
metal movement. By the dawn of the 1990’s, thrash bands had gone
from playing backyard barbeque parties to headlining arenas and
Metallica were on their way to becoming one of the biggest metal acts
of all time. But as legions of headbanging, stage diving and moshing
metalheads were flocking to see their favorite bands, the tides had
begun to change. In the early 1990’s, an evolving musical landscape
sent thrash spiraling back into the underground. Some bands broke up,
some artists returned to their day jobs and some passed away. While
the music lived on, the scene was forever changed.
