'Get Thrashed: The Story Of Thrash Metal' DVD Release Pushed Back To August

"Get Thrashed: The Story of Thrash Metal" — the much-anticipated documentary profiling the thrash metal scene of the early Eighties and its impact on the music scene — has had its projected DVD release date pushed back to August from the previously announced May.

"Get Thrashed: The Story of Thrash Metal" traces the rise, fall and impact of thrash metal, an extreme style of heavy metal popularized in the early 1980s by bands like METALLICA, MEGADETH, SLAYER, ANTHRAX, SUICIDAL TENDENCIES and others. It is the story of the heaviest, hardest music of the '80s and early '90s as told by the bands that lived it, the fans and bands that grew up on it and by the artists that carry the "thrash metal" flag today. The documentary throws new light on an overlooked, yet incredible music scene and how it went from a simple rumbling in the underground to a loud, obnoxious and constant roar in the (almost) mainstream. The documentary is produced by Saigon1515 Productions in association with Kundrat Productions.

"Get Thrashed" was directed by Ernst and the documentary's associate producer is Rat Skates, founder and former drummer of OVERKILL.

Opeth is awesome band.

Unfortunately the cookiemonster singer fucks up the music.

Sometimes they can add a good element to some of their songs, but he makes up for it by being a phenomenal singer (when he sings normally) and a kickass guitarist.

I've gone through several metal phases. I'll always have a special love for old Metallica. Also, Tool is in my 'old favorites' folder. But more recently, I've been into the more hardcore styles.

Here's a short list:

Misery Signals

The Fall Of Troy

The Bled

Scary Kids Scaring Kids

Norma Jean

And so on. B)

This thread is METAL. So, no Page and Coverdale. The Runaways were sorta punk-ish. Not metal. Lita Ford did go metal, but not when in The Runaways. And if 'Kyuss' or whatever, aren't metal, then don't post them :rolleyes:

Anyway, I should update my list, becasue I have been listening to a lot more of it, so obviously:

MEGADETH (Best fucking metal band EVER)

Pantera

Metallica

Anthrax

Slayer

Lacuna Coil

H.I.M. (love metal)

Sepultura

Mercyful Fate

King Diamond

Arch Enemy

Chevelle (not entirely metal, however a lot of it is)

Mastodon

Metallica

Nightwish

Opeth

Pantera

Tool

Not a heck of a lot, that is just what I have on my computer, I am definitely going to get a lot more in the future though, when I find new metal bands to get into.

Metallica (cant wait for their new album with Robert Trujillo)

Are you serious! I love Metallica, they were my no.2 until Tool came along, but after hearing St. Anger. I wish they would stop before they become a joke. They are still kick ass, but they are suffering from an image problem. They say they are going back to their roots.

I basically love the popular metal bands, but i don't like the genre, even though most of what I listen to can be considered Metal.

Breaking Benjamin I wont classified as metal, but does have metal songs is my newest favorite.

I've been listening to Mastodon for the last couple of weeks and I've been loving it!

I don't usually listen to metal besides some Metallica occasionally, Kyuss or QOTSA that aren't exactly metal but have some elements I think. It was hard to assimilate at first all the loud, fast and somehow dark (because of the unusual scales used perhaps?) music that it is metal, again, because in my teenage years I used to listen to nu-metal bands like Korn, Limp Bizkit, P.O.D. and the likes, I loved the anger and energy that fueled that kind of music, but grew tired and bore of it as I got older and discovered other bands from other genres and eras.

But I gotta say I'm rediscovering the genre trough Mastodon, what I like about them is the progressive elements and high level of talent that they have as musicians, I'll certainly keep listening to them. B)

Jani Lane, the former lead singer of the metal rock band Warrant, has died in Los Angeles.

He was 47.

Officer Sara Faden says Lane's body was found Thursday in a Woodland Hills hotel. She had no immediate information on the cause or circumstances of his death.

With his long blond hair and tight leather outfits, Lane embodied the excess of 1980s "hair metal" rock bands. He joined Warrant in 1984 and wrote such hits as "Heaven," "Down Boys" and "Cherry Pie."

He had an on-and-off relationship with the band, leaving it in 1992 before returning and quitting again several times.

RIP Mr. Lane. Heaven will always be one of my favorite 80s guilty pleasures.

RIP Jani Lane! He used to have a great club here in the downtown bar district. It was a fun place with good live music to check out - called Jani Lane's Sunset Strip.

I vividly recall Jani Lane performing as the frontman for Warrant in a coveted support slot on a massive Motley Crue tour. Jani was a gifted entertainer and I'm saddened by his passing. -- SAJ

-----------------------------

Rockers Slash, Nikki Sixx, and Steven Adler have paid tribute to former Warrant star Jani Lane, who was found dead in a Los Angeles hotel room on Thursday night.

The body of the musician, 47, was discovered at the Comfort Inn hotel in Woodland Hills. No official cause of death has been released.

Lane's rock peers were stunned by the tragic news, and have taken to their Twitter.com pages to express their grief over his passing.

Bret Michaels tells fans, "We'd like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of Jani Lane regarding their loss."

Sixx states, "I just heard the sad news about Janie (sic) Lane. So hard to swallow when people have kids. RIP", while Adler adds, "Jani Lane, you were a great talent. The world will miss you. R.I.P. my brother."

In a post on his page on the microblogging site, Slash writes, "Just heard about Jani Lane. What a shame. RIP man." invisible.gif

Lane, who fronted the Cherry Pie hitmakers between 1986 and 2004 and briefly reunited with the group in 2008, was married three times and is survived by a wife and four children.

I saw them at a festival in 1988 or 89' at Paradise Valley Park Phoenix, AZ. They put on a great show along with Cinderella and a few other bands. I wish I could remember more but that night was a bit of a blur...college days ya know :D

Lane was a great performer and made everyone in the crowd feel special, he just had that gift. I remember going to the show to see Cinderella and having no interest in seeing Warrant because I thought their music was sophmoric at best. Jani Lane made a beliver out of me, the man was just so warm and kind and the music just came alive.

You will be missed...may flights of angels sing thee to thy rest.

He had two daughters, not four, but it's still tragic nonetheless.

Wow. Just. Wow.

Don't kick me. But, back in the 80s, I did love the hell out of "Heaven" and "Cherry Pie".

RIP Jani.

I was shocked when I first heard the news, even after knowing about his recent troubles with alcoholism. I grew up with Warrant, Poison, Bon Jovi etc.. and have seen Warrant many times during those years. They do get labeled a joke band, which I understand, but they've put on a great show every time I've seen them. Jani especially was a fantastic front man, and always had the crowd in the palm of his hands. He had a great sense of humor which I always remember from his shows, and from watching interviews. R.I.P
