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 This is where it ALL started. October 24, 2008
Out of all the music Documentaries I've seen, GET THRASHED is seriously the best chunk of DVD I've ever been privy to watch. It took me back to the music I listened to that wasn't on the radio, wasn't in the major chain of record stores. I had to travel to college towns with my lunch money to pick up the latest Metal imports, that's exactly where this DVD took me.
GT Covers the New York & California scene, and gives props to the San Francisco Bay Area, where Thrash really thrived. They show the music crossover into Hardcore Punk, They show the origins of the biggest bands, and interview the great smaller ones as well. The extra features go on a nationwide clickable map where you can go from city to city to check out that area's scene, which has as much footage as the movies itself.

My only complaint isn't much of one - They cover John & Marcia Z. of Megaforce records & Metal Blade from the west coast, but nothing was mentioned of COMBAT records. Oh, and Phil Anselmo from Pantera was too stoned to hold the Microphone. I'm leaving out a bunch, but you need to own this if a fan at all. It was put together by Overkill's ex-drummer Rat Skates and Anthrax Bassist Frank Bello. Well worth the year wait I knew about it.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Definitive Review of Thrash Metal's History April 24, 2011
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 ›
