A new clip has surfaced of drummer Lars Ulrich discussing the early influences of Metallica in the new documentary, The Rise of LA Thrash Metal. Ulrich discusses the “kinship” between the punk and metal scenes and how Metallica nested between them.
The first part of the two-part series will be released on January 19th and focuses on the early days of the thrash scene. The documentary is directed by Bob Nalbandian and features in-depth interviews from metal legends such as Brian Slagel (Metal Blade Records), David Ellefson (Megadeth), Frank Bello (Anthrax), Gene Hoglan (Dark Angel/Testament) and more!
