(Thu 27th / 8pm / £3/2)

Get Thrashed: The Story of Thrash Metal is the story of how bands like Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, Anthrax, Exodus and others pioneered a new form of heavy metal in the early 1980s. This new music was called ‘thrash metal’ and many of the bands went from playing friend’s parties and small clubs to headlining arenas. Along the way there were drugs, drinking, fights, deaths, mosh pits, leather jackets, long hair and most of all – ground breaking new music. The seeds these bands planted gave rise to the new breed of extreme heavy metal we see and hear today.
