GET THRASHED: THE STORY OF THRASH METAL Get Thrashed is the story of how bands like Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, Anthrax, Exodus and others pioneered a new form of heavy metal in the early 1980's. This new music was called "thrash metal" and many of the bands went from playing friend's parties and small clubs to headlining arenas. Along the way, there were drugs, drinking, fights, death, mosh pits, leather jackets, long hair and most of all - groundbreaking new music. The seeds these bands planted gave rise to the new breed of extreme heavy metal music we see and hear today.
It's eye-opening to see this history come alive. -- Rick Ernst, STYLUSMAGAZINE.COM
