    i just picked up this DVD last weekend. This documentary blew my mind and is now my new favorite DVD. It might have helped too that i was stoned when i watched it but either way this is a must have DVD for any thrash metal fan.:headbang:

    I read mixed reviews about it, but not one really bad. If you consider this one and "Metal: A Headbanger's Journey", "Flight 666" and "Anvil! The Story of Anvil", I think doing serious metal documentaries may become a new trend that will give more respectability to the genre IMO.

    "Metal: A Headbanger's Journey" was Sam Dunn first documentary about the subject, very good view albeit a bit shallow (you cannot go that deep into so many sub-genres in one DVD, so for me it was a really good honest effort, but no Cannes material :saint:), but "Flight 666" is his documentary about Iron Maiden's Somehwere in Time tour. It was (like the Anvil one) even shown in cinemas around the world. The DVD comes out in June. You didn't heard about it? o_O

    Stoned or not, it's a very good DVD. I'm glad someone else likes it. :)

    I agree about Metal: A Headbanger's Journey being a tad shallow... it was okay though, although the way he tried to pass off an everyday documentray as Anthropology slightly got on my nerves...

    Flight 666 I have already said I thoroughly enjoyed :) I'll always love Iron Maiden the best :lol: Makes it hard to be completely objective but I thought it was really good...

    Anvil was a well-made film, but it kind off left me feeling bummed out and wanting to give up being in bands and all that before I lose all my self-respect...

    Amazingly I still haven't seen Get Thrashed despite waiting for its DVD release for months... keep meaning to sit down and watch it with a mate...

    Well actually is an Anthropology (or Sociology) documentary!. Only Sam wanted to do it about his favorite subject: metal, and treated it from a cultural point of view. I think he actually show the music is a serious business and we're not a bunch of rebellious freaks (although we do have some stains in our history).

    I'm not mad about it and I don't own it, but I think it was a decent, serious effort to show the world who we really are and why metal means so much to us.

    My only complaint is that they didn't spend enough time on Kreator or any time on Sodom.
