Metal Lords, the upcoming film about high school metalheads is going to arrive on Netflix on April 8th. But before the premiere date, the stars shared their experience working on the project and finding new bands to listen to.
Netflix original movie, Metal Lords, follows two high school students who are not into Biebermania. They are pure metalheads who hope to compete in the upcoming Battle of the Bands competition. But they are short of a bassist which is when they find a cellist to fill in as bassist for the band.
Jaeden Martell appreciated the “artistry” and “technicality” behind the music on the Netflix movie Metal Lords
Martell happily gushed about finding new music and bands to ComicBook.com. “I definitely was introduced to some new bands. But really, it allowed me to appreciate another side of the music, especially, not only constantly listening to it, but studying it and learning how to play it is a whole other thing.”
Like many of us, Hainsworth wasn’t into metal, but through the movie, she realized it was “special”. “And then, doing this movie, it was really a privilege to get to learn far more than I ever would’ve thought about this amazing genre of music,” she expressed.
Adrian Greensmith was inspired to learn guitar after watching School of Rock
Adrian wasn’t shy to admit that he had the itch to learn guitar after School of Rock. The journey was more of a “full circle” for him. He explained, “The movie which made me want to learn how to play guitar was School of Rock. And so, when I started playing guitar, I started with rock and Jimi Hendrix and stuff like that, and then I moved away from that. So this was going to be an opportunity to… It was full circle. It was really exciting to come back to a rock-adjacent thing, with metal.”
“And when we did the Battle of the Bands when we got up there and did that big scene, I remember looking at the two of them, and it felt like everybody was giving their all, and it was brilliant,” he added. They filmed together like a “unit” and it was “collaborative”.
