Today, I'm here to give you some details on our next big project: BangerTV.
BangerTV will continue the mission we started ten years ago with our first film Metal: A Headbanger's Journey — to explore what metal means to people around the world. We all know how big this music is, and how it important it. We believe metal deserves its own dedicated channel, delivered direct to you, the fans of metal music.
In the weeks ahead, you're going to see some exciting new web series and short-form documentaries, like Metal Evolution: Albums, a series devoted to the most influential records of the metal underground. We're still thinking global—watch for my new travel series reporting on scenes from Gothenburg to Johannesburg. And we'll continue to bring you interviews with the most important names in metal.
Starting today, you can preview BangerTV on our Youtube channel. Here's some of what you can watch right now:
Raw and Uncut - The very best interviews from Banger's 10-year history, with brand new director's commentary from me. Check out two of my favourite interviews ever, with Bruce Dickinson, and a young Lamb of God.
This Band Changed My Life - From our extensive interview archive, metal musicians share the artists, albums and concerts that made them who they are today. Check out the first episode with Bill Ward of Black Sabbath, Kirk Hammett of Metallica, Ace Frehley, Death Angel, and the late Oderus Urungus of Gwar
Metal Giants - New original interviews with metal's legacy artists. Starting with Kerry King from Slayer and Nergal from Behemoth.
New clips will be added every week. Go forth, share and comment! (We know metal heads are full of opinions so don't hold back!)
Details on the full BangerTV channel launch are coming soon. As a subscriber to this newsletter, you'll be the first to know!
