THE CREATORS OF ‘INSIDE METAL: THE PIONEERS OF LA HARD ROCK AND METAL” DOCUMENTARY FILM SERIES, FEATURING SOME OF THE BIGGEST NAMES OF ’80S METAL, IS OFFERING FANS A CHANCE TO BE INCLUDED IN THESE HISTORICAL MOVIES!

 

The early ’80s metal scene in Los Angeles has become legendary, as it spawned such worldwide headliners as Mötley Crüe, Ratt, Dokken, W.A.S.P. and countless others. Many of those very artists now live in and perform in our neon and glittery Sin City ( have you never been to Vamp’d? Vinyl? LVCS? Dive? Triple B? ) And the new documentary, ‘Inside Metal: Pioneers of L.A. Hard Rock & Metal,’ chronicles the ENTIRE scene from the Starwood to the Whiskey and beyond.

The film is directed by Bob Nalbandian and produced by Metalrock Films. ‘Inside Metal’ features all-new interviews with countless bands and artists that thrived on the scene, and tell its story, first hand. But as everyone knows it takes money to do it up proper, and to ensure that this killer documentary receives the attention it deserves, a fundraising campaign has been set up at WWW.METALROCKFILMS.COM – which will help strengthen the film’s distribution, marketing and promotion.

INSIDE METAL includes exclusive, never before seen candid interviews with members of Metallica (Lars Ulrich), Ratt (Stephen Pearcy), Dokken (Don Dokken), Quiet Riot (Carlos Cavazo), W.A.S.P. (Chris Holmes), Megadeth (David Ellefson), Great White, (Jack Russel), Y&T, (Dave Meniketti), Stryper (Michael Sweet) and Armored Saint (Joey Vera).

‘Inside Metal’ is about giving fans the real inside story from the behind the scenes world of metal and hard rock with in-depth interviews, ultra-rare concert footage and photographs, and an original music score from that era; in this no-holds-barred, never before seen, recollection of untold stories.

 

 

Early feedback has been exceptional, and Metalrock Films asks – and wants – real and serious metal fans to be a part of this historic documentary and spread the word that this was the scene where it all began, ground zero- LA- The Sunset Strip. “Our Fanbacked campaign will raise the direly needed financial support to bring this film to one and all in the US and Internationally in order to pay for the marketing and promotion to get it noticed by the general public. We want to bring this film to your theatre, town, bar, club and living room! Unite and support us. We have created some one of a kind opportunities for our friends and fans to participate with us in birth of this film. Get your name on the screen and let the world know that you support metal and the bands that create it. Help us tell the story of the music you love and let the world know you love it. Join in the festivities of our, and your, accomplishments by being at the premiere of the movie and interact with the artist that participated in its creation. Commemorate your participation with a plaque, t-shirt, poster or other limited edition merchandise items that says ‘Metal Rules.'”

ZRockR supports the film maker’s efforts and thinks the film will be AMAZING and a DO NOT MISS for ANY metal fan, but it has to get out there and the big studios don’t give 2 shits about what we want- so let’s get behind this and help INSIDE METAL get the press, promotion and distribution it really deserves!

Editor/ Staff Writer and Co-Founder of ZRock'R Magazine. Sylvia has worked in and around music since she was 16, though it has always been a part of her life. In radio ( her last radio job was in the mid-90's at KKLZ before departing for other pursuits) , as part of various tour support/production crews, in promotion of both bands and even clubs (recipient of the Climax/Plan C Entertainment Blackberry Award in 2007 for her work as production manager of the Las Vegas MC Jin show ) and in rock journalism with a music column in the late 80′s called MusicLine in the Independent News in central Illinois. Sylvia has also has written articles and reviews for SCOPE, The Reader, Las Vegas Music Scene Magazine, Vegas SoundZ (she was PR director for LVMS where she helped push a little known and upcoming at the time Vegas photographer then known as Shane O'Neil Dobbs ( he later dropped the Dobbs), landing him his first concert shoot for a publication with Nine Inch Nails at the Thomas and Mack in '95) and she also did PR for Vegas SoundZ when they were in print). She also was a contributor to LA’s FIX Magazine. Sylvia credits her love of rock journalism and working in and around it to the person she calls the “First Lady of Rock n Roll Journalists” The legendary Jaan Uhelszki who co-founded influential music publication CREEM Magazine, but also gives a nod to the women who were also involved in the early days like Lisa Robinson and photographer Lynn Goldsmith. Sylvia's eye for talent and ear for great music have never failed her. Ever sarcastic with a love for Metal, Grunge, Punk, and Industrial Music; the occasional glass of fine wine; enjoying some classic movies (the original Universal horror films are a favorite) or binging episodes of Monty Python's Flying Circus, Good Omens or all 4 seasons of Stranger Things - she is the fearless leader of this bunch of talented lunatics.
