VH1 Classic's 'Metal Evolution': Sneak Peek of 'Thrash' Episode (VIDEO)
Vh1 Classic has just given Noisecreep a sneak peek of the newest installment of their 11-part rockumentary 'Metal Evolution.' Today's exclusive early look is of part 6 which is dedicated to the influential thrash scene of the late '80s.
In this clip, Metallica's Lars Ulrich and Metal Blade founder and CEO Brian Slagel talk about the first time they met at a Michael Schenker concert in Reseda, Calif. back in the early '80s. Metal Blade would eventually include Metallica's 'Hit the Lights' on their 1982 'Metal Massacre' compilation. Although it was the legendary band's vinyl debut, the early pressings of the compilation erroneously credited them as "Mettallica."
'Metal Evolution' airs every Saturday night at 10:00 PM ET on Vh1 Classic. The series is hosted by filmmaker and anthropologist Sam Dunn.
