Beginning Monday, August 3, Syfy will premiere "Metal Crush Monday", a month-long programming stunt featuring interviews conducted by Syfy Wire's Whitney Moore, with some of the biggest names in heavy metal. In segments surrounding "metal" movies, artists including Corey Taylor (SLIPKNOT, STONE SOUR), Scott Ian (ANTHRAX), Jonathan Davis (KORN), Maria Brink (IN THIS MOMENT), GWAR and more, share their love for sci-fi, fantasy and horror… discuss the organic crossover between genre and heavy metal… and watch and discuss the Syfy movie of the week. Additionally, fans will be able to go online to Syfy Wire's YouTube page or listen to an original limited-series podcast (available on Syfy.com and major podcast platforms), for full conversations that dig deeper into each artist's favorite sci-fi and horror content, metal inspirations and more.
"We know there's a natural connection between fans of metal and genre," shared SVP of Syfy Wire and personal heavy metal aficionado Sandy Deane. "Syfy is bringing both together in a way that may seem surprising to some, but makes perfect sense to us."
