Rick Ernst is the producer and director of “Get Thrashed: The Story of Thrash Metal,” which is now out on DVD in a special encore edition.  We discussed the evolution of thrash metal, being a part of the “zine” scene (and how Lars Ulrich referred to it as the “Internet of the ’80s), and why many of the thrash metal albums sound timeless (hint: no gated snare drum).
