Metal is still one of the largest genres in the world, and Banger TV is one of the biggest names in the game. Producing massively popular documentaries and series since 2005, the Canadian channel has amassed over 145,000 followers on Facebook and some 169,000 subscribers on YouTube. Now, they’ve just enlisted a Maltese band to promote their latest project.
Taking to social media to announce a new series, Overkill Global, all about “unique, niche music scenes” from all over the world, Banger TV released a trailer with a song that Maltese metal fans will definitely recognise.
The track, The Black Hand, was actually released just one month ago by local melodic death metal band Angelcrypt.
“The song was selected amongst hundreds of submissions from all over the world,” Angelcrypt’s Shawn Mizzi told Lovin Malta. “This is honestly a great honour for us, for Malta and the Maltese metal scene.”
Overkill Global premiered its first episode last Tuesday, with Banger TV’s Blayne Smith introducing the audience to some of the top albums to look out for from Iceland’s black metal scene.
While there’s no word on a Maltese episode, here’s hoping Angelcrypt’s feature is only the beginning of the island’s appearance on the global stage.
