Inside Metal is a series, of documentaries, put out by MetalRock Films. These documentaries give you really good insight into the LA music scene. The first documentary, in this series, is called Inside Metal: Pioneers of the of L.A. Hard Rock and Metal. The first film, in this series, covers the L.A. rock scene from 1982 - 1986. I decided to check out the second one first, because it starts from 1975 - 1981. I'm not sure why they didn't do these in order, other than the fact, that maybe they thought that the 82 - 86 era, would be more popular. It totally makes sense, if that is why they did it.
Inside Metal 2, is a very informative documentary, covering the rise of the L.A. Hard Rock and Metal scene. It takes you back to when Van Halen broke, and covers the challenges that many of these bands faced, trying to emerge from the pack. The DVD is chocked full of interviews, from some of your favorite artists. I was also impressed that they had representation from some of the more obscure bands, from the era, like Max Havoc. I have to say, this was a thoroughly entertaining watch, and left me craving more. I'm definitely putting my order into Amazon, for Part 1.
Bottom Line: An in depth look, into one of the greatest rock scenes, to emerge from the USA. lots of great interviews and information from the scene that would impact the metal world forever.
-Ragman is glad he decided to go in order.
