Gibson TV's second episode of Metal and Monsters celebrates the worlds of heavy metal and monster culture. Rob Zombie bassist, Matt “Count D” Montgomery hosts, joined by Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett. Count D and Kirk discuss monsters, metal, and horror memorabilia, featuring photos from the films that helped shape a lifelong love of horror including The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, The Exorcist, and Nosferatu.

We have an exclusive clip not seen in the episode, featuring Kirk listing his top ten horror books. From Poe to King, Kirk breaks down his most definitive horrors on the page. And yes, of course, Lovecraft makes the list, ahem "The Call of Ktulu" anyone?
