The documentary is getting rave reviews from viewers and artists in the industry. Blasko, the bassist for Ozzy Osbourne stated he “…didn’t know much about this era of the rock scene in LA as I was too young to experience it. Inside Metal was a fun and informative look into the foundation of the LA Metal scene.” Madonna’s guitarist Monte Pittman said the documentary was “…like a college course in music history.”
