'Get Thrashed': DVD Version Of Thrash Documentary To Contain Loads Of Bonus Footage

The makers of "Get Thrashed", the upcoming documentary profiling the thrash metal scene of the early Eighties and its impact on the music scene, have announced that the DVD version of the film — due in early 2005 — will feature over an hour of extra footage that will not be seen when "Get Thrashed" airs on cable television this fall. An simultaneous international DVD release is also planned. "We are still working on an international television airing as well but as of right now that is [to be determined]," reads a posting at GetThrashed.com.

As previously reported, filming for "Get Thrashed" was recently completed and the show is currently being edited. Post-production should be completed this fall, with an air date and location to follow soon after.
