DESTRAGE launched a trailer on the Metal Blade Records youtube channel last week to serve as a preview of their extensive studio documentary.

No.” at length, including: Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal’s guest solo, interviews with the team behind every step of the production, individual tracking performances, and much more. This feature length film by director Giulia Gargano, is of a quality one would generally expect to see for sale as a bonus DVD.
