BangerTV is the brainchild of Sam Dunn, who you may know from the ultimate metal genre map documentary Metal: A Headbanger’s Journey. Well, no surprise for a man so dedicated, his journey is far from up, and in fact, he’s putting the pedal to the metal with his new metal guitar competition show Shredders of Metal!
The SHREDDERS OF METAL trailer reveals some of the series guitar challenges, including “Speed Kills”, which will test playing precision at different speeds, and “Metalize This,” in which contestants must transform a children’s song into a metal shred.
As previously announced, seven guitarists will showcase their shredding skills for a panel of three judges: Alex Skolnick (Testament), Daniel Dekay (Diemonds, BangerTV) and Sam Dunn (Banger Films Co-Founder). The six-episode series is hosted by Blayne Smith and premieres Monday July 23rd, with new episodes daily during “Shredders Week” – July 23 to 28.
At the end of each episode, one contestant will be eliminated, until the finale episode featuring a guitar duel to determine one champ.
“No one’s ever really done a show like this before,” – Sam Dunn
