'Get Thrashed' is an intimate look into the genre that started most other types of extreme metal. A well rounded documentary produced and directed by metal fans and musicians(Rick Ernst and Rat Skates) that taps into the origins of thrash, it's somewhat demise in the mid 90's and now it's resurgence in the mid 2000's. Everyone you would expect see in the film you do. The BIG 4 or even now 5 as Exodus is also included as pioneers of the great underground movement. And it was very underground as most realize. There was a tape trading phenomenon and this was the core behind the movement. Not to mention some great bands.
The film also looks into the other thrash movements across the world. Notably,Canada,Germany and Switzerland. Also included is the crossover point where thrash and hardcore blend together. You hear about Suicidal Tendencies,D.R.I.,S.O.D. and others that incorporated these sounds that developed into new genres.
Many famous people are interviewed not to mention some lesser known folks that offer insight into the realm that is thrash. There is also some really great pictures that are flown throughout the film and ofcourse great background music. Running at about 99 minutes you really get your fill of the genre.
Then the special features continue the majesty. With even more interviews and knowledge from bands I have never even heard of. This film is truly a knock out of the park. So if you are a fan of heavy metal especially a fan of thrash this film was made for us.And I am extremely thankful. It made me feel like a kid again.

Get Thrashed is a documentary on, you guessed it, the phenomenom that was and IS thrash metal. Now it didnt really tell me anything I didnt already know about thrash, but it was very enjoyable to hear the music legends talk about a genre they obviously cared alot for. One drag was that I had to listen to bands like Shadows Fall, Corey Taylor, Lamb Of God, and Hatebreed give their opinions. But it wasnt a big distraction form the overall film. They interview every band you'd think should be in there, and the bonus features covers any they missed, with the exception of a few,(Demolition Hammer). All in all, I enjoyed this film alot, and am glad to have it in my collection.

I have been waiting for this for a loooong time and it is by far the best documentary ever! I relived many memories watching this. The documentary is very well done, edited and the songs are insane. This is an absolute must for every metal fan!

Back in the early 2000's I heard that a documentary on Thrash Metal was being made. I could not have foreseen how long it would take for me to see it but finally by the end of 2008 I had a copy of this DVD in my hands. Who ever considers him or herself a true thrasher must have a copy of GET THRASHED. It's hard for any documentary to fully embrace and review the whole scene so some lesser known bands have been omitted but the key players are fully covered. People tend to forget that METALLICA basically kick started the scene and you get commentaries from people who were in the thick of it: Brian Slagel (founder of Metal Blade Records), Johnny and Marsha Zazula (founders of Megaforce Records), Ron Quintana (Radio DJ and Fanzine editor), Slayer, Kreator, Harald O (close METALLICA friend), etc. The so called "BIG FOUR" are extensively covered here; SLAYER, MEGADETH, ANTHRAX and of course, METALLICA. EXODUS is also given plenty of time as well as TESTAMENT and OVERKILL (whose original drummer, Rat Skates, Co-produced this project). Bands and people talk about how the movement started, where the influences came from, how was life on the road, the underground tape trading, scenes from other countries (specially Germany!),etc. Newer bands like LAMB OF GOD, THE HAUNTED, MESHUGGAH, SHADOWS FALL, KILLSWITCH ENGAGE and MUNICIPAL WASTE express how these thrash metal bands influences their own bands. As with any genre, sometimes it's difficult to tell when a style of music stops and another one begins. While bands like MERCYFUL FATE and ANVIL are discussed as "thrash", other bands like Germany's HELLOWEEN and RAGE are completely overlooked. FATE and ANVIL were essential in the development of thrash metal, but were more akin to conventional or classic metal like PRIEST or MAIDEN.Read more ›

History seems to be repeating itself, and thrash is making a foothold again in the mainstream of metal, this DVD shows how the soul of thrash never did die out, it just went underground... bands like Overkill and Metallica, Exodus, and Testament never went away, and thier new releases are selling great... bring it on, bring it all on... if you are a fan of early, or current Thrash, this is the video for you...

This is a great video view into the beginings of Thrash, on the west, and east coasts... Interviews with Thrash legends like Overkill, Slayer, Death Angel, Exodus, Anthrax, Testament, and new thrash acts like Municpal Waste, ans Evile bring the Thrash right to your face, so close up, and personal, you can almost SMELL the stale beer, and sweat...

Begining with the west coast, bands like Metallica, Slayer and Exodus, the video delves into the roots of Thrash, and how the hair bands, and the punks had shunned the early Thrash bands, forcing Metallica to move north to the Bay Area, joining the Bay masters, Exodus, in creating the mighty metal scene there... Slayer stayed in LA, bludgeoning the "posers" into submission... when Metallica flew to New York, eventually sending Dave Mustaine packing, and bringing in Exodus guitarist Kirk Hammet, New York bands like Anthrax, and New Jersey's Overkill welcomed them into a huge scene of thier making...

This vid is fantatic if you are a fan of Thrash, or even just the New York metal scene back then, as the bonus features delve into the crossover bands, and New York hardcore...

Overall if you are fan of any metal, this vid will show you how it was done BEFORE the internet, and BEFORE the labels took over every aspect of music, when metal was ugly, pure, and real... it is a must see...
