The first official trailer for Metal Lords, is here! The new Netflix coming-of-age comedy written by D.B. Weiss. David Benioff, the team behind Game of Thrones. Rage Against The Machine, guitarist and heavy music virtuoso, Tom Morello was hired to serve as an executive music producer for this film, which stars Adrian Greensmith and Jaden Martell as a pair of metal heads desperately seeking to form a metal band for a high school battle of the bands.
Morello said the following on the film to Billboard.com:
“I grew up in a small, cloistered, conservative suburb where my musical tastes ran against the grain of almost everybody else in school and certainly all of the teachers, so this is something I can very much relate to. It’s a story of kids trying to get their first band together and having a dream, but perhaps not having the technical ability or the artistic vision to make that dream real. Or do they?
For me, it harmonizes in a lot of ways with the real story of so many kids who are locked in these suburban hells and the key to get out is an electric guitar or drums or rock and roll music. The music shows a way to transcend this stifled daily existence, to try to be something better, be something more authentic and true than what’s handed to you by your surroundings.”
Metal Lords is set to premiere on April 8th via Netflix.
