Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello has a lot going on. He has a radio show, still does the music thing, and now add producer to his credit. He signed on to be the executive music producer of the Netflix film Metal Lords from the Game of Thrones team of David Benioff, D.B. Weiss and Greg Shapiro.

The film centers on two high school kids who are the only metal fans in their school who decide they want to start a heavy metal band. Jaeden Martell (Knives Out, It), Isis Hainsworth (Misbehaviour, Emma) and newcomer Adrian Greensmith are set to star in the film.

The subject matter seems something that would be right up Morello’s alley as the guitarist has often spoken about his early attempts at bands and shared eloquently some of the group’s that inspired his love for heavy music,

For Morello, this continues a relationship that he’s held with the Game of Thrones creators. Fans might remember in 2019 when Morello joined Weiss as well as fellow guitarists Scott Ian, Nuno Bettencourt and Game of Thrones composer Ramin Djwadi for a jam session rocking Fender created Game of Thrones-inspired guitars while playing the Game of Thrones theme.
