San Francisco Bay Area to get two part historical documentary

The famous San Francisco Bay Area gets the MetalRock Films treatment, with the first part of a two part series ‘Bay Area Godfathers’ set for release 6 October 2020.

Directed by Bob Nalbandian and produced by Warren Croyle, the film features contributions with many of the Bay Area Thrash Metal icons of the time, including musicians, managers, journalists and label execs.

You can watch director Bob Nalbandian and co-producer John Strednansky discussing the film here:

The film includes contributions from Lars Ulrich (Metallica), Dave Meniketti (Y&T), Steve Souza and Tom Hunting (Exodus), David Ellefson (Megadeth), Dave Lombardo (Slayer, Suicidal Tendencies), and Eric Peterson (Testament), among many others.

It covers the golden era from the late ’70s into the early ’90s, when the local hard Rock and Metal scene of the San Francisco Bay Area literally took the world by storm.

The film is packed with exclusive interviews, ultra-rare archival concert footage and photographs of the influential artists of that groundbreaking era.
