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.
HORNS UP THRASHERS!!!!
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...

Fantastic film. The story of thrash from the musicians, DJ's, industry people, and fans who were there. It has a strong focus on the American scene, but that's okay. Read morePublished 14 months ago by MetalheD
Just watched this documentary and was completely blown away. It's very in depth and there's not much they don't touch on. Read morePublished 16 months ago by Drew T. '77
