A trailer for the highly anticipated thrash documentary "Murder In The Front Row: The San Francisco Bay Area Thrash Metal Story" has been revealed.
Directed by Adam Dubin, the film is an extension of the incredible book "Murder in the Front Row: Shots from the Bay Area Thrash Metal Epicenter" (by Harald Oimoen and Brian Lew, buy here) that captured timeless snapshots of the rise of the Bay Area bands such as Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth, Exodus, Testament, Possessed, Death Angel and many more, in the early 80's.
The director stated: “What I loved about the book is that it wasn’t just about Metallica. It was documenting a vibrant scene, where all the bands were equal and there was real camaraderie. The photos captured the sweat of the clubs, the ringing in your ears and the power of young people. Harald [Oimoen] and Brian [Lew] captured the humanity of it, and they understood that I was somebody who could bring that out in a film.”
The film will receive its premiere on April 20th in San Francisco. In the meantime, here's the trailer:
