The Battle of the Bands is a fun competition that gets overlooked these days. Music has to start somewhere. In Netflix‘s newest movie, Metal Lords, they’re taking the idea of the Battle of the Bands and adding a classical look to it. Here’s the synopsis.
Two kids want to start a heavy metal band in a high school where exactly two kids care about heavy metal. Hunter (Adrian Greensmith) is a diehard metal fan who knows his history and shreds. His dream is to win the upcoming Battle of the Bands. He enlists his best friend Kevin (Jaeden Martell) to man the drums. But with schoolmates more interested in Bieber than Black Sabbath, finding a bassist is a struggle. Until Kevin overhears Emily (Isis Hainsworth) playing her cello. The motley crew must contend with school, parents, hormones and teen angst while trying to get along long enough for Skullf*cker to win the Battle of the Bands.
Metal Lords stars Jaeden Martell, Isis Hainsworth, Adrian Greensmith, Sufe Bradshaw, Noah Urrea, Analesa Fisher, Michelle Fang, Phelan Davis, with Brett Gelman, and Joe Manganiello. It’s directed by Peter Sollett and has a screenplay by D.B. Weiss. It releases on Netflix on April 8th, 2022.
