The First Four Episodes of the Heavy Metal Hitchhiker TV Show are Out Now
Heavy Metal Hitchhiker, the new series from BangerTV, is now four episodes deep into its eight episode run, providing some much-needed levity and heavy metal entertainment in these weary and concert-less times.
Brought to you by Sam Dunn, the man behind the iconic documentary, Metal: A Headbanger’s Journey (and other excellent productions since), the series follows… well, a heavy metal hitchhiker! Here’s the synopsis:
“This action-packed comedy series follows a day in the life of Mitch, a heavy metal-loving gas station attendant, who stumbles upon an abandoned guitar that belongs to his favourite band, RÄGR. In a moment of happenstance, Mitch realizes that he must follow in his father’s roadie-shaped footsteps and return the six-stringed axe to the band in time for their headlining concert. Without money or wheels, Mitch’s only option is to hitchhike. He’s got 10 hours to travel 247 kilometers to fulfill his destiny.”
The series premiered on April 20 (4/20, maaaaan!) with three episodes released since. At between six and eight minutes each, they’re the perfect length for internet attention spans (my own included), meaning you can knock out the entire first half of the series in just 30 minutes.
Music on the show includes cuts by Power Trip, Carcass, Municipal Waste, Earthless, Possessed, Exciter, KEN Mode, Protest the Hero, Cancer Bats and more.
