5.0 out of 5 stars Essential!!!!! September 19, 2008
'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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Just like Evil, Thrash Never Dies September 19, 2008
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Old School at it's Finest October 30, 2008
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...

5.0 out of 5 stars It's Not Even Music, It's Just A Bunch Of Noise!!! January 11, 2009
Get Thrashed is a very entertaining and very informative documentary on the 80s Thrash scene. Many Metal documentaries get complaints from certain folks coz "X" band was not mentioned or covered. Get Thrashed is rather well researched and covers quite a bit of ground. It begins with Thrash's beginnings, the bands, the scene, the fans, it's downfall, and ultimately it's resurrection and influence on recent bands(it it nice to hear younger more recent bands speak so highly of these old thrash groups, it's just unfortunate that they didn't seem to learn much from them). The film is 99 minutes, so it does go into depth. The big four Thrash bands are covered, but many more obscure bands are given their due. Lots of interviews and commentary with bands old and new. There really isn't enough time to go into every Thrash band in history, but that's where the Bonus Features come in. The Bonus Feature is a world map where you can highlight a particular country or city and get a short description of the scene and/or the bands from that particular area. This is a wonderful addition because it can bring to your attention some bands you may have never heard of. Plus it helps in the "this band wasn't mentioned" category that Metal fans tend to get so picky about.
Naturally it goes without saying that this documentary will only appeal to a certain crowd. I can't see the average Bowling For Soup fan getting much out of this, but you never know. But this is highly recommended to the metal fans, even the younger ones so they can see where this whole thing came from and who the masters are. I can't imagine too many metal fans will find many flaws in this film.
