"Born In The Basement" has been receiving noteworthy acclaim for its candidness: an open, honest, internal assessment of an overlooked time period that began the most significant pivotal point in metal. Recently, the movie was privately screened by some well-known musicians and insiders in the industry: Scott Ian (ANTHRAX) said, "This looks deep into the scene we came up in, and should be required viewing for anyone starting a career in music," while Jay Jay French (TWISTED SISTER) agrees: "This exposes the deep inner-workings of a musician's vision and dedication, and the dirty little secrets of success in this business for any band, from any genre." Fellow thrash pioneers Gary Holt (EXODUS) and Charlie Benante (ANTHRAX) both "relived their past…very entertaining and 100% old-school." In the re-surfacing of his un-inhibited style, David Ellefson (ex-MEGADETH) said, "Rat is a great MC for our community, this is a really ballsy retrospect."
