Watch A Video Recap Of ‘Rise Of L.A. Thrash Metal’ Premiere

An eighteen-minute video recap of the June 19 premiere of Rise Of L.A. Thrash Metal, the third title in the Inside Metal series, is now available.

Rise Of L.A. Thrash Metal will be available on DVD and major streaming outlets late this summer through MetalRock Films as a two-part DVD. This documentary film focuses on the Los Angeles thrash metal uprising of the early/mid-’80s and is the follow-up to the first two Inside Metal titles, The Pioneers Of L.A. Hard Rock and Metal And L.A. Metal Scene Explodes. (All are two-volume DVDs available for streaming and airing on select cable channels.) The fourth Inside Metal title will be on the Bay Area metal scene of the ’80s and it’s currently in the editing stages and planned for an early 2018 release.

Rise Of L.A. Thrash Metal was directed by Bob Nalbandian with narration by David Ellefson of Megadeth. It was produced by Bob Nalbandian, Carl Alvarez and Joe Floyd, executive-produced by Warren Croyle and edited by Curtis Don Vito.
