While Heavy Metal is often accused of being static and conservative, in truth it is a radical form that regularly re-invents itself, and one which attracts generation after generation of musicians willing to learn from the past, but hungry to evolve with the future. And so it was that, in the early 1980's, a young man called Lars Ulrich was so taken by the New Wave of British Heavy Metal, then creating music paper headlines in the UK, that he came to England to track down obscure records, take them home to LA and, with his buddies, listen to them - until they came up with a genre of their own, soon be termed Thrash Metal.
This film is a study and review of this new dawn in rock music, and with the aid of those who were there at the time, presents both the story of this fascinating musical journey and reassess the sounds, the bands, the impact and the legacy of Thrash. Features: interviews with members of Metallica, Megadeth, Machine Head, Diamond Head, Elixir, Neurosis, Laaz Rockit, Sacrilege BC and many others; performance footage of all the pivotal Thrash bands, review and reassessment from journalists Malcolm Dome, Lonn Friend, and Joel Mclver, archive material, location shoots, and much, much more.
