Gibson TV is thrilled to present its first show dedicated to the worlds of heavy metal and monster culture in the new series “Metal and Monsters.” The host of this adventure is Matt “Count D” Montgomery – bassist for the King Freak himself, Rob Zombie. Having been a staple of the Zombie band and live show for the last 16 years, Count D looks forward to sharing his passion for music and film with metal and monster fans worldwide. 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! And there’s more! Count D takes the monster squad 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.” But that’s not all! In a historical piece titled “Exhumed from The Tomb,” Count D sits down with guitarist Bill Steer from the legendary death metal band Carcass to explore the band’s 35-year history. Filmed on location in downtown Los Angeles, the backdrop for “Metal and Monsters” is the historic 2,000 seat Los Angeles Theatre. Constructed in 1930, Charlie Chaplin helped fund the completion of the building so it would be ready to premiere his film “City Lights” in January of 1931. After closing its doors in 1994, the Los Angeles Theatre sat vacant for many years until serving as a film and television location for productions including “Man on The Moon,” Charlie’s Angels,” “Mad Men,” and “The Lords of Salem.” So, if you like blast beats and things that go bump in the night, then this is the show for you!

“We are always trying to push the boundaries of what we can do with Gibson TV as a platform,” says Mark Agnesi, Director of Brand Experience at Gibson Brands. “As a guitar brand, it would be easy to just make product demos and call it a day, but that was never our vision. Our goal was to create TV shows that could compete with any network or streaming service, and ‘Metal and Monsters’ is our most ambitious effort to date. This show has been a passion project of ours for over two years now and we are so excited to unleash it onto the world.”

“With 2022 being the 35th Anniversary of the film A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors, I can’t think of a better way to celebrate than reuniting two pillars of the metal and monster genre,” says Todd Harapiak, Gibson TV Content and Director. “Robert Englund and Don Dokken have meant so much to all of us for decades and having them appear in the first episode of ‘Metal and Monsters’ is a dream come true.”

“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,” explains “Metal & Monsters” Host Matt “Count D” Montgomery. “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. Hit the lights! Here we go!”
