Metalhedz is an online comedy/drama that delves into the personal lives of rock music fans, chronicling their love lives and journeys from immature, sex-obsessed drunks to adults that have to face responsibilities. Launching in 2014 the Scottish show debuted on YouTube and has been running each year, with the third and final season set for release on November 22nd, with a new episode each week for six weeks.
Over the course of the first two seasons we met Ginge; the womaniser with a fear of getting attached who then fell for Chloe, a girl with trust issues. After she finally agreed to give him a chance their relationship quickly became strained as both their fears clashed. Things weren’t helped by the sudden appearance of Ginge’s ex-girlfriend Bones – the one who initially caused him to distrust relationships, and who the debauched Skull quickly took a fancy to. Whereas Ginge’s best friend and flatmate Tails; a geeky, gamer girl, had fallen for their third flatmate Beki.
After a lot of will-they-won’t-they Tails finally stepped up and made her move. At first it all seemed to be bliss, but Tails insecurities were wearing down Beki who prefers to just let life happen. Her avoidance only fueled Tails paranoia, which drove her towards a drunken mistake with the already lonely Ginge. Season 3 picks up shortly after the fallout from Season 2, where Ginge is still hurting from losing both his best friend and girlfriend in one day, and so has taken to being closed off emotionally to those around him. Meanwhile the reprehensible Skull couldn’t be happier in his new-found situation with the equally as foul-mouthed Bones, but can he offer her more than just a bit of fun in the bedroom?
For Season 3 the show takes a bit of a festive twist, parodying Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, with Skull being visited by three Ghosts who try, frustratingly, to show Skull how much his friends need him to grow up and help put the group back together. Airing via YouTube, supported by fans and sponsored by CRMC Clothing; an independent, alternative clothing company, the show also features and helps to promote local bands and businesses.
