The promotional video recapping the premiere of Inside Metal: The LA Scene Explodes part two has been released by Metal Rocks Films. Filmed on June 2nd 2016 at The Attic in Hollwood, Ca, and on June 6th, 2016 at The Regency 6 in North Hollywood, Ca. Inside Metal The LA Scene Explodes is a two part documentary produced by Bob Nalbandian covers the era of 1981-1986 in Los Angeles music history when metal was king and the Sunset Strip became the epicenter of The Rock N Roll Universe.
The two part Inside Metal documentary has in depth interviews with many of the key players who shaped the scene at that time, including musicians, managers, journalist and record exects. LA Metal Scene has been critically acclaimed. I found that the interviews included in the documentary were very in depth and a broad picture of the people involved in the scene were presented. The editing was fantastic and as a metal fan and Los Angeles native who thought they knew every thing that they could about the LA Metal Scene in the 1980’s was surprised at all the knowledge I never knew that was presented in this documentary.
