After much waiting Heather and Kat are back with another episode of Hell’s Belles where they turn it up to eleven in order to celebrate the golden era of heavy fucking metal, focusing their attentions on two of the most loved, and most quoted, mockmentaries on the subject, Rob Reiner’s This is Spinal Tap (1984) and Comic Strip Presents: Bad News (1983). They also take a look at more serious films from the era such as The Decline of Western Civilization Part II: The Metal Years (1988).

Other topics include what it means to be a metalhead, why The Scorpions went shit. And, if you have been dying to know which Spinal Tap character Heather most identifies with, this is the place to find out.

So get your spandex on, wear your crab face proud, turn it up, play it loud.
