“‘This Was My Life’: The official Nick Menza documentary film is an unflinching exploration into the life of one of the most successful thrash-metal drummers of all time, authorized by the Menza family. From his childhood all the way through to the end of his life including a true blow-by-blow account of the repeated failed attempts of the classic Rust In Peace Lineup.
This Was My Life: Will also feature rare and never before seen photos and video footage from Nick’s personal archived VHS tape collection, personally filmed by Nick Menza himself from 1988 through 1991 – Featuring exclusive content showcasing Nick working at the studio, personal home movies, casual time and party time with his fellow band members, as well as other well-known bands of the era that Nick toured with.”
Menza’s longtime personal manger Robert Bolger also commented:
“I am very excited to be working with Screaming Butterfly Entertainment on Nick’s official documentary. There’s a lot of published misinformation out there about Nick that isn’t true and I am very happy to bring the truth forth. Nick loved his fans and always said without the fans none this would be possible. I really think Nick’s fans will enjoy this journey through his life.”
Executive producer Holly Mollohan from Screaming Butterfly Entertainment added:
“As both a filmmaker, and fellow metalhead who deeply values the metal community, I am honored and excited to go on this journey alongside all of you.”
