David Benioff and DB Weiss, the minds behind HBO’s epic fantasy series ‘Game of Thrones’, are back to take you on a musical journey with their latest offering ‘Metal Lords’. The upcoming Netflix movie revolves around two kids who are ardent fans of metal music and they feel really bad that they are the only two who care about the genre.

Although many bands claim to be “metal” specialists, Kevin and Hunter believe that they can do much better. The duo decides to form a band, but they are not able to find a bassist. However, everything changes when a girl named Emily, a girl who plays cello, meets them and becomes a part of the band. The trio would have to work together and make music that would help them in winning the Battle of the Bands competition.
