Since the dawn of the 80s and long, wavy manly hair brushing up against their Les Paul, heavy metal and horror movies have had a beautiful matrimony of an alliance that is hard to ignore. The likes of Gibson TV recognizes this and we are thrilled to present its first show dedicated to the worlds of heavy metal and monster culture in the new series “Metal and Monsters.”
Hosted by Matt “Count D” Montgomery – bassist for King Freak himself, Rob Zombie, the legendary maestro of the bass shares his passion for music and film with metal and monster fans worldwide. The show, worth noting, is filmed on location in downtown Los Angeles in the historic 2,000 seats Los Angeles Theatre.
In the first episode of “Metal and Monsters,” Count D takes us to Elm Street as he reunites Don Dokken and Robert Englund to celebrate the 35th Anniversary of the film “A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors.” Featuring never before seen photos from the “Dream Warriors” video shoot, Robert and Don share stories of musical influences to behind-the-scenes tales of one of the most successful horror franchises in film history.
Throughout the 60 minute episode, viewers are also treated to different segments that explore the worlds of horror and heavy metal! In a segment titled “Tunes from The Crypt,” Count D revisits Metallica’s 1991 groundbreaking release “The Black Album” and gives fans a chance to win some exclusive prizes! The show also takes viewers on a field trip to the offices of Super7 in San Francisco to talk with founder Brian Flynn and the Super7 team to learn more about their projects with Motörhead, Iron Maiden, and Megadeth in a segment titled “Terror Trek.”
