The makers of Gimme Metal Radio are now adding a visual aspect to the app, with the launch of Gimme Metal TV, a streaming video service ontop of their radio service.
Gimme TV combines the power of MTV-like linear broadcasting with live streaming and will feature music videos, short form artist-created content, long form music documentaries and movies, live streaming music performances, live streaming artist lifestyles/storyteller pieces and even some classic Metal Injection clips in there as well. Download the app in Android store or the iOS app store or on gimmemetal.com.
While many music fans are at home and streaming more than ever, Gimme TV is super-serving their music community with a wide range of live streams, unmatched behind the scenes content, and firsthand stories. Fans can watch the highest production events as well as impromptu at-home sessions. Gimme knows that fans want more than just shows; they want intimate access to their favorite artists' lives, a tour through a musician's record collection, quarantine projects that have been keeping their favorite bands busy, and more. Another unique aspect of Gimme TV will be live interaction with various artists while watching content.
Gimme Metal TV's programming will commence this week with Death/Chuck Schuldiner documentary Death By Metal. Director Felipe Belalcazar will be available in the live chat giving viewers deeper insight and context into the movie they won't find anywhere else.
Additionally, Gimme Metal TV has over ten years of exclusive interviews and footage from Metal Injection as well as music videos from labels such as Relapse, Season Of Mist, Metal Blade, and more. With the capability to offer live music, unreleased content, and exclusive access, Gimme Metal TV is truly presenting the ultimate fan experience.
Gimme CEO Tyler Lenane comments, "Right now, there is this mad rush to become the live streaming destination. But I think these other companies are missing the point that fans don't just want to watch a live performance in an empty club on their laptop… they want deeper access to artists and they want to experience it with other fans. Gimme learned how to build communities with online radio and we are going to make those communities even stronger with real video."
Megadeth's Dave Mustaine, host of GIMME METAL's The Dave Mustaine Show, raves, "Adding video to Gimme Radio is something that I've wanted to do since I first met the Gimme creators! How rad would it be for GIMME METAL fans to be watching music videos with me and other metalheads around the world? There will be so much killer stuff too! How does watching official videos of the songs, live concert footage, recording of records, b-roll, cool jamming, and of course our amazing DJs, live in their studios sound? This is game changing."
