Music biopics are things that are riding high at the moment if you can count the success of the recent “Bohemian Rhapsody” film and the unnerving revelations of “Lords Of Chaos” as a part of the puzzle but as far as documentaries about the music that stick with people for long afterward and become constant topics of conversation, the number is limited for sure. The documentary “Murder In The Front Row” takes its name from the part of the song by Bay Area Thrashers Exodus from the song “Bonded By Blood” and will bring the audience back to the days were on any night of the week a live music craving Metalhead would be able to see the likes of Metallica, Slayer, Exodus, Possessed and even New York’s Anthrax in small clubs as a new music scene was building. The trailer for the documentary was just recently revealed so let’s watch it right now. I recommend holding back on any circle pit activity and stage diving until you have completed for your own safety and for that of your preferred devices.

About The Film: “Murder In The Front Row: The San Francisco Bay Area Thrash Metal Story”. In the early 1980’s, a small group of dedicated Bay Area headbangers shunned the hard rock of MTV and Hollywood hairspray bands in favor of a more dangerous brand of metal that became known as thrash! From the tape trading network to the clubs to the record stores and fanzines, director Adam Dubin reveals how the scene nurtured the music and the music spawned a movement. “Murder In The Front Row” is told through powerful first person testimony and stunning animation and photography. The film is a social study of a group of young people defying the odds and building something essential for themselves. Featuring interviews with Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, Anthrax, Exodus, Testament, Death Angel, Possessed and many more! Narrated by Brian Posehn. (c/o Official YouTube Channel).
