"Rise Of L.A. Thrash Metal", the third title in the INSIDE METAL series, will be premiered on Monday, June 19 at 7:00 p.m. at the Regency Valley Plaza 6 Theater in North Hollywood, California. This is the only screening date that is scheduled and the filmmakers have set aside a limited number of tickets available to the public. "Rise Of L.A. Thrash Metal" will be available on DVD and major streaming outlets late this summer through MetalRock Films as a two-part DVD. This documentary film focuses on the Los Angeles thrash metal uprising of the early/mid-'80s and is the follow-up to the first two INSIDE METAL titles, "The Pioneers Of L.A. Hard Rock & Metal" and "L.A. Metal Scene Explodes". (All are two-volume DVDs available for streaming and airing on select cable channels.) The fourth INSIDE METAL title will be on the Bay Area metal scene of the '80s and it's currently in the editing stages and planned for an early 2018 release. "Rise Of L.A. Thrash Metal" was directed by Bob Nalbandian with narration by David Ellefson of MEGADETH. It was produced by Bob Nalbandian, Carl Alvarez and Joe Floyd, executive-produced by Warren Croyle and edited by Curtis Don Vito of SNEW.
