5.0 out of 5 stars Thrash till death!
This is a wonderful, nostalgic film for all us old thrashers and a great introduction to the scene for new fans. Some fascinating interviews with most of the big hitters from the scene...the main film covers 6 or 7 bands in detail ( Metallica, Anthrax, Slayer, Megadeth, Exodus, Kreator, Suicidal Tendencies and Pantera ( the latter of whom had too much time IMO ) )...

2.0 out of 5 stars "They were just extreme, dude!"
This documentary is little more than a long series of interviews with thrash bands commenting on other thrash bands. While it was nice to see the guys again, statements like "Dude, they ruled, you know?" or "Man, they were just extreme!" really don't provide much information.

Some musicians are pathetically self-centered (Dave Mustaine making himself look...

This is a wonderful, nostalgic film for all us old thrashers and a great introduction to the scene for new fans. Some fascinating interviews with most of the big hitters from the scene...the main film covers 6 or 7 bands in detail ( Metallica, Anthrax, Slayer, Megadeth, Exodus, Kreator, Suicidal Tendencies and Pantera ( the latter of whom had too much time IMO ) ) alongside detailed investigations into the creation of the genre, it`s fans, fashion and impact.

The bonus feature goes on for ages and covers a good bulk of the rest of the scene. The only down point is the lack of actual music from the bands...especially on the extras. I guess there was a rights issue. But overall it doesn`t matter too much, the documentary is fantatic on it`s own and I guess most of us have all those old Cds to listen to anytime!

This review is from: Get Thrashed - The Story Of Thrash Metal [2008] [DVD] (DVD)
This documentary is little more than a long series of interviews with thrash bands commenting on other thrash bands. While it was nice to see the guys again, statements like "Dude, they ruled, you know?" or "Man, they were just extreme!" really don't provide much information.

Some musicians are pathetically self-centered (Dave Mustaine making himself look stupid, yet again), others come off as genuinely interesting and likable people. Yet no-one even tries to be systematical, and the focus is almost exclusively on the US. Even Lars Ulrich, who repeatedly confessed that "without Motörhead, there'd be no Metallica", only dwells on Metallica's role, here. How to talk about the birth of thrash without mentioning Motörhead's "Overkill"? Apparently, it can be done - but it fails to be enlightening.

Ninety minutes of extras sounds great - but that is really just another hour and a half of bands going on about bands, now outside of the US, and how "extreme" they all were. This disc is, literally, without any music footage! Why not play at least one song per band?!

To sum up, intentions were good, no doubt, but the result is poor. Sam Dunn manages to provide five times the amount of information during the 45 minute thrash metal episode of Metal Evolution. So, unless you'll be content to have a six pack or two and listen to the boys congratulate one another, I suggest you go to Dunn, or keep looking.

Great documentary about best music genre ever! Lot of interesting interviews, videos, pictures and stories. It refreshes lot of memories from 80's. If you like thrash metal you'll love this DVD.

i've seen a lot of documentaries in my time but none as informative as this dvd. it's made by a few heads from other thrash metal bands but i dare not say who as it'll supprise you!
in short, this is easily the best dvd ever made on this subject. a must for all thrashers!

I bought Metal: a Headbangers journey first and loved it. This was more of the same but somehow seemed a little lacklustre. It was ok but too much of the same that I have already seen.

Was good though if you just love your thrash and want to see some of the earlier interviews and clips from the era.

Great footage from the 'big four' plus the other Bay Area legends. Well worth getting and a really interesting look into the early thrash metal scene.
