Available from September 17th on the Staccs TV channel on Samsung TV+ and Pluto TV only in the Nordics, ‘Heavy Metal HeyDaze’ will take viewers on an access-all-areas tour through the metal and rock music videos and concert recordings available on Staccs.
Taking a deep dive into the world of metal and rock, from exclusive live performances, documentaries, interviews and the most rocking videos from a curated Staccs playlist handpicked by Vanessa – new episodes of ‘Heavy Metal HeyDaze’ will be released each month, with repeats airing every Thursday at 9pm CET on the Staccs TV channel and Staccs.com.
Speaking on the announcement, Vanessa Warwick said:
“I’m so excited to be back on screen with ‘Heavy Metal HeyDaze’ on Staccs TV. It’s a walk down memory lane to those brilliant days of Headbangers Ball. But more than just an ode to the past, it’s a new opportunity to showcase the very best of metal and rock that Staccs offers and take fans closer to the music than ever before.”
“Fans are the heart and soul of rock music and I’ve got high hopes Staccs will be in top demand with its brilliant programming. Gone are the days of staying up late to watch these shows or having to record episodes on VHS, as Staccs can offer this rocking content on demand. Keep it heavy!”
Robert Kviby, CEO and Chairman of Staccs, said:
“It’s an absolute honour to welcome Vanessa Warwick to Staccs TV with this awesome format. Fans of metal and rock in the 90s will be able to make an epic time travel.”
