Throughout history, the San Francisco Bay Area has long been named as the epicenter for “Thrash Metal;” whereas Los Angeles is invariably considered the “Hair-Metal” capitol. True, San Francisco has birthed many exceptional thrash bands since the early ‘80s, but the fact is LA is the birthplace of three out of the “Big 4” thrash bands as well as the breeding grounds for many of the more unconventional speed/thrash/punk-metal bands. Whether it’d be the legendary icons METALLICA, SLAYER, and MEGADETH, or punk/metal renegades SUICIDAL TENDENCIES, or underground thrash legends DARK ANGEL and HIRAX, like it or not, they all originated from this pretentious, megalopolis, hellhole we call Los Angeles!

So why is it that LA thrash metal has taken a backseat to the NorCal Bay Area? This is one of many issues that will be revealed in this compelling 2-Volume documentary presented by MetalRock Films. This third installment of the groundbreaking INSIDE METAL series takes the viewer on a journey into the evolution of Thrash Metal…or “speed metal” as it was originally labeled. Appropriately titled “The Rise of LA Thrash Metal” explores the ‘80s metal counterculture with first-hand insight from the bands and artists that ruled the LA Metal underground as well as journalists, scenesters, and insiders from a time in history when metal music was becoming more and more creative, experiential, uncompromising and extreme. A time when Thrash Metal was thriving in LA!

Featuring exclusive, never-before seen, interviews with Lars Ulrich (Metallica), David Ellefson (Megadeth), Dave Lombardo (Slayer, Suicidal Tendencies), Rocky George (Suicidal Tendencies), Eric Peterson (Testament), Gene Hoglan (Dark Angel, Testament, Dethklok), Brian Slagel (Metal Blade Records), John Bush (Armored Saint, Anthrax), Joey Vera (Armored Saint), Frank Bello (Anthrax), Chris Poland (ex-Megadeth), Marty Friedman, Juan Garcia (Agent Steel, Abattoir, Body Count), Katon De Pena (Hirax), Eric Meyer (Dark Angel), Greg Durschlag (The Weasels), Felice LoCoco and Kurt Markham (Overkill L.A.), Malcolm Dome (UK Journalist), Bill Metoyer (Producer), Diego Negrete (MX Machine), Scott Peterson (Cryptic Slaughter), Mike Inez (Alice In Chains), Wolf Hoffmann & Peter Baltes (Accept), John Gallagher (Raven), Brian Tatler (Diamond Head) and many others.

Throughout history, the San Francisco Bay Area has long been deemed as the epicenter for Thrash Metal whereas Los Angeles has invariably been considered the stomping ground for Glam and Hair-Metal. True, San Francisco has birthed many exceptional thrash bands since the early ‘80s but the fact remains, Los Angeles is the rightful birthplace of three out of the “Big 4” thrash bands and is the breeding grounds for unconventional thrash/punk-metal bands. >From legendary thrash icons Metallica, Slayer, and Megadeth, to punk/metal renegades Suicidal Tendencies and combative thrash stalwarts Dark Angel and Hirax, they all generated from this pretentious, megalopolis hellhole we call Los Angeles.

So why is it that L.A. thrash metal has taken a backseat to NorCal Bay Area bands? This is one of many topics that are revealed in Part Two of this compelling 2-Volume documentary presented by MetalRock Films. This third installment of the groundbreaking INSIDE METAL series takes the viewer on a journey into the evolution of Thrash Metal…or “speed metal” as it was originally labeled. Appropriately titled The Rise of LA Thrash Metal, this film explores the ‘80s metal counterculture with first-hand insight from the bands and artists that ruled the L.A. Metal underground as well as journalists, scenesters, and insiders from a time in history when metal music was becoming increasingly more creative, experiential, uncompromising and extreme. Despite the lack of media attention and being deemed irrelevant by the mainstream press, there’s no denying that by the mid-80s Thrash Metal music was thriving in Los Angeles!

Featuring exclusive, never-before seen interviews with Lars Ulrich (Metallica), David Ellefson (Megadeth), Dave Lombardo (Slayer, Suicidal Tendencies), Rocky George (Suicidal Tendencies), Eric Peterson (Testament), Gene Hoglan (Dark Angel, Testament, Dethklok), Brian Slagel (Metal Blade Records), John Bush (Armored Saint, Anthrax), Joey Vera (Armored Saint), Frank Bello (Anthrax), Chris Poland (ex-Megadeth), Juan Garcia (Agent Steel, Abattoir, Body Count), Katon De Pena (Hirax), Greg Durschlag (The Weasels), Malcolm Dome (UK Journalist), Bill Metoyer (Producer), Scott Peterson (Cryptic Slaughter), Mike Inez (Alice In Chains), Wolf Hoffmann & Peter Baltes (Accept), John Gallagher (Raven), Brian Tatler (Diamond Head), Marty Friedman and others.

In a high school where no one ever graduates, a headbanging hero will embark on a mission to have the heaviest band on the scene. With the help of his best friend Kurt and two Nigerian thrashers, their loud and brutal band Black Christ is poised to dominate the Portland suburbs and eventually the world. Until a zealous, ultraconservative school counselor persecutes Sage for his violent lyrics and he finds himself mesmerized by a mysterious Christian girl who wants only to save his soul from damnation. Sage must decide how far he is willing to go and what price he is willing to pay to defend his faith in all that is Metal.

This is the legend of Sage Negadeth and the band Black Christ, and how they were born, raised, slain and born again!

Featuring music by SCORPIONS, DESTRUCTION, PANZERGOD, BLACK KRIST, WITCHES MARK and THE WESTERN VIRUS.
