Syfy’s ‘Metal Crush Mondays’ to Feature Some Big Music Names Between Movies
Syfy is launching "Metal Crush Mondays" in August. One day a week, some bonafide stars of hard rock and heavy metal will appear between some decidedly "metal" movies on the science fiction television channel.
That means fans who love metal and sci-fi flicks can tune in to see members of Slipknot, Korn, Anthrax, In This Moment, Sevendust and more. The month-long feature will have the rockers chatting with Syfy Wire's Whitney Moore in the middle of movies such as Resident Evil: The Final Chapter and Anaconda.
As Syfy Wire Senior Vice President and metal aficionado Sandy Deane explained in a press release on Wednesday (July 29), "We know there's a natural connection between fans of metal and genre. Syfy is bringing both together in a way that may seem surprising to some, but makes perfect sense to us."
Other movies on the docket include Lake Placid and Underworld: Blood Wars. Further, viewers can visit SyFy Wire's YouTube page after each program to listen to a limited podcast series that will feature full conversations with each artist about their favorite sci-fi and horror films, among other topics.
In addition to host Moore, who's done work for MetalSucks and DC Comics, "Metal Crush Mondays" features writing and production from audio-video extraordinaire Mark Strigl of the Talking Metal podcast.
Below, see the full "Metal Crush Mondays" schedule and roster of guests after a quick teaser video for the first Monday's showing. Metal fans and movie lovers alike won't want to miss out on this unique television experience.
