Heavy metal and horror go hand in hand together, so of course we’re thrilled when we hear that Rob Zombie bassist Piggy D is hosting a show that blends the two together!
As reported by Bloody Disgusting, Gibson TV – the media branch for Gibson guitars – has just launched its first show dedicated to the worlds of heavy metal and monster culture in a new series called Metal and Monsters. And you can start watching it today!
Metal and Monsters is hosted by Rob Zombie bassist Piggy D (Matt “Count D” Montgomery). Through Metal and Monsters, Count D is excited to share his passion for music and film with both metalheads and monster movie lovers.
Regarding the series, Piggy D shares, “We’ve really taken our time to make sure this show feels exactly like the campfire it’s supposed to be for metal and monster fans of the world. As a full time monster and musician, I’m so humbled and honored to take this journey with such an incredible team into the darkest and heaviest corners of the universe.”
In the first episode of Metal and Monsters, one of the most iconic metal songs in horror reunites with its iconic franchise.
The Rob Zombie bassist, along with Don Dokken, and Robert Englund (the latter who is best known for his role as Freddy Kruger) celebrate the 35th anniversary of the 1987 horror movie, A Nightmare On Elm Street: Dream Warriors, as well as Dokken’s song for the film.
