The Rise of LA Thrash Metal 2 explores the ''''80s metal counterculture with first-hand insight from the bands and artists

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, 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.
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. Previous INSIDE METAL titles Pioneers of L.A. Hard Rock & Metal and L.A. Metal Scene Explodes (both 2-volume documentaries) are also available on MetalRock Films.
