Anthrax Guitarist's 'Blood & Guts' To Premier Next Week
The Nerdist YouTube channel debuted on April 2 with a stellar lineup of programming that includes talent such as "Weird Al" Yankovic, Kids In The Hall, Harry Knowles and more. As Blabbermouth reports The latest addition to the channel's fantastic program is "Blood & Guts", a web series hosted by Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian, which premieres on October 3. In the series, Ian will meet with movie f/x artists to teach viewers how to create realistic-looking horror makeup. "I've been neck-deep in blood and guts for the last 30 years playing in ANTHRAX", stated Scott Ian, "so I couldn't be more excited to be hosting a show called "Blood & Guts" for you horror and metal fans". A 38-second promotional clip for "Blood & Guts" can be seen below. When asked how his collaboration with Nerdist came about, Ian told, "Just out of the blue last week, [Nerdist founder] Chris [Hardwick] hit me up and asked me if it was something I'd be interested in. He felt my personality was right for this. I guess the backstory on it would be that when they first came up with the idea for "Talking Dead", I got a call about shooting the pilot, and my job was field reporter. What they did for my segment was send me out to the set of one of the webisodes, and then Greg Nicotero and his team made me up as a zombie and I got to be a walker. I had closeups and everything in the webisode. When it got picked up, they didn't keep me as field reporter that position, I guess, wasn't something they were gonna move forward with but Chris just kept it in the back of his mind. I can only assume that when Nerdist and Fangoria had the idea to do this show, Chris said I'd be the right guy to be going out and hosting these things because of the bit I did on "Talking Dead"". On the topic of his favorite horror make-up moments of all time, Ian said, "The first thing to pop into my mind is when Tom Savini gets torn apart in "Dawn Of The Dead". That scared me as a kid and I guess you could kinda say it stayed with me in a good way. The scene in "Scanners" when his head blows up, that's a classic. Anything in "Evil Dead" or "Evil Dead 2". I know I mentioned this, but I just watched "Drive" last week and that scene where she gets her head blown off is straight out of an '80s horror movie. The movie's not necessarily slow, but very Michael Mann, '80s kinda pacing, very moody and all that - and then all of a sudden that hotel-room scene happens and you're just, like, "Holy crap!" and then from there it's just 100 miles an hour. I was blown away with that movie". Users can subscribe to the Nerdist Channel here.
