You might have heard about the documentary about the final years of The Beatles that was being done by Peter Jackson, and if you haven’t we’ve just solved that little problem for you on a brisk Monday afternoon haven’t we. Earlier, director Jackson offered up a sneak peek into the massive undertaking and its something you are really going to want to sit back and enjoy.

About The Film: “The Beatles: Get Back” is an upcoming documentary film directed by Peter Jackson that covers the making of the Beatles’ 1970 album “Let It Be”, which had the working title of “Get Back”. The film draws from material originally captured for director Michael Lindsay-Hogg’s 1970 documentary of the album. “The Beatles: Get Back” endeavours to recut Lindsay-Hogg’s film to show the friendly camaraderie that still existed between the Beatles, as well as to challenge longtime assertions that the project was entirely marked by ill-feeling.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I don’t recall ever having seen the original “Let It Be” film and think that like most people out there only saw the few clips from up on the rooftops. This really looks like a must see film and I cannot wait to sit down and enjoy it in full and then eventually own a copy for my video library. What do you readers think about what you saw in the trailer, I mean “sneak peek” clip? Chime in down below in the comments and always remember that during this crazy pandemic time “All You Need Is Love”….see you next time.

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).

I grew up on the music of The Beatles, well, okay they were doing their thing for a few years by the time that I got here but when I was listening to music I heard a lot of them thanks to my folks who offered up a proper musical education on their works. For those who were not aware of this, there is a new movie coming out that brings you back in time to their touring years. There was a Teaser Trailer but I didn’t post that and instead opted to wait for the full on trailer which we learned went online a couple of days ago. Check it out and then examine a brief bit of information about the film itself as culled from the Wikipedia entry.

“We Are Twisted F**king Sister” [Blu-ray] by Twisted Sister

Artist: Twisted Sister
Title: “We Are Twisted F**king Sister”
Label:
Eagle Vision
Release Date:
2/23/2016
Genre: Hard Rock/Heavy Metal Documentary
Rating: 4/5

Before I begin the discussion about this particular music history documentary, I must make the readership aware that I have been listening to the band Twisted Sister for a number of decades now and began my own personal journey with them around the time that the “Ruff Cuts” EP was released. Believe it or not I still have a copy of it somewhere in my collection of albums. That being said I was super interested in observing the documentary that Andrew Horn put together because it was not only going to give us insight from all of the band members that we know from the classic lineup, it would also get some insight from a former member or two and the people that worked closely alongside them at the very beginning.
