The Story

Welcome to the website of A History of a Time To Come - the story of UK thrash, a documentary telling the tale of british thrash metal through the ages, from the early 80s to the present day.

The film aims to fill in the blanks in the history of the genre, where those bands who were once so popular, have faded from memory.

We, the film makers, are fans of the genre, and we're looking for as much input as possible from our fellow fans. If you have any memories/memorabilia, photos, videos or stories we'd love to hear from you, via Twitter, E-Mail or Facebook.
