Gibson TV is thrilled to present the second episode of the original series, Metal And Monsters, the network’s first show dedicated to all things heavy metal and monster culture. Throughout Metal And Monsters, viewers are treated to different segments that explore the worlds of music, film, and tales from the dark side. All Gibson TV original shows are streamed for free on Gibson’s official website.
In its first-ever Halloween Special, Metal And Monsters host Count D (Rob Zombie band), sits down for an in depth interview with Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett to discuss monsters, metal, and horror memorabilia. Featuring photos from the films that helped shape Kirk’s love of horror, Kirk, and Count D talk about their love of films, including The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Exorcist, and Nosferatu. You can watch the episode below as Kirk discusses making music in Metallica, his new solo album Portals, and his top 10 horror bands of all time.
Every Metal and Monsters show features the following segments and interactive opportunities for horror and metal fans who tune-in around the world. The show takes the monster squad on the ultimate behind-the-scenes field trip to Halloween Horror Nights Universal Studios in Hollywood, CA. Count D visits Creative Director and Executive Producer of HHN, John Murdy and learns the process of how the Halloween Horror Nights mazes are designed and constructed.
