"Get Thrashed: The Story of Thrash Metal"; Complete Film

The «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.  

«Comprehensive, informative and often hilarious (especially the clothes), "Get Thrashed" is a must see no matter what kind of music you're into.» -Scott Ian / Anthrax

«Rick Ernst has managed to capture the spirit of a metal phenomenon while addressing its influence on today's metal scene. I For one could not be more fired up!» -Gary Holt/ Exodus
