A new documentary film will be screened in San Fransisco on April 20th. It’s title is “Murder In The Front Row: The San Francisco Bay Area Thrash Metal Story” and it was directed by Adam Dubin. The movie features interviews from James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, Kirk Hammett,Robert Trujillo, Tom Araya, Kerry King, Gary Holt, Dave Mustaine, David Ellefson, Chuck Billy, Alex Skolnick, Robb Flynn, Charlie Benante, Mark Osegueda, Dave Lombardo. Both the inspiration and the title comes from the photobook by Harald Oimoen and Brian Lew, as the director says: “What I loved about the book is that it wasn’t just about Metallica. It was documenting a vibrant scene, where all the bands were equal and there was real camaraderie. The photos captured the sweat of the clubs, the ringing in your ears and the power of young people. Harald and Brian captured the humanity of it, and they understood that I was somebody who could bring that out in a film.”
