San Francisco thrash metallers Death Angel have announced that they will be debuting a sneak preview of their recently-filmed documentary "Death Angel: A Thrashumentary" this weekend at Los Angeles' Heavy Metal Film Festival.
The "thrashumentary" is a combination live video and documentary, alternating between concert footage, interviews with the band, and shots of life on the road. Directed by Tommy Jones, the documentary was filmed during the band's "Relentless Retribution" world tour in support of their latest album. The video aims to give viewers an unprecedented glimpse into the world of Death Angel, as the band members reflect on their careers and the nearly 30 year history of the group.
The full film is not scheduled for release until Spring 2012, but a shortened sneak preview will be aired this weekend as a part of the very first Los Angeles Heavy Metal Film Festival from March 31st through April 2nd, 2011. The lineup for the festival can be viewed here.
