from the looks of the bands that were interviewed for this, about half aren't thrash. hopefully they will just be dicussing thrash and arent actually being considered as thrash. because if they are then i'll pass on this. pretty good clip of scott ian though.

Metal documentaries are notoriously bad, feeble attempts to both cover metal and yet pull in people to view their docco's by including big names. The series on Gorgoroth and Metal: A Headbanger's Journey (which featured some of the Gorgoroth material I think) have been about the only one's that live up to their title. I mean, they're always an interesting watch, and you know you can never have too many interviews with Lars or Kerry King - but some are pretty shameless.

Two in particular come to mind - can't remember the names but one was something like a four part on a history of heavy metal. Of course, 2 parts had to pretty much focus on Glam metal, 1 part for the early days and another tacked on hodge podge of Metallica and Iron Maiden interviews. The others were the same.

In the end, the reason they include interviews with Killswitch Engage and Kittie and not thrash bands below the top tier is to pull in the kids (aka selling the f*** out). It'll probably be a good watch but far from what it could or SHOULD be.

Alot of the bands like Kittie, Fozzy, KSE etc. aren't on there because they're considered thrash (because they're not) but to discuss how thrash metal affected them, how it inspired them as musicians and people and so forth, so I don't think they'll be on it too much. As far as I know it's more interviews with Exodus, Testament, Anthrax and such so don't worry.
