"Thunderflix is made by metalheads for metalheads." Can we get a hell yeah?
The television streaming era is excellent - we have never-ending tv series, movies and documentaries flowing from too many streaming services.
But what if you didn’t have to browse through Amazon Prime, Netflix, Stan and the rest just to find the metal doco you want to watch? What if there was one place for everything metal?
Streaming service Thunderflix has answered those prayers. For just $6.66 a month or $66.60 a year, metalheads can watch Slipknot: Day Of The Gusano (Live In Mexico), Scorpions: Forever And A Day, Rage Against The Machine: Live At Finsbury Park, Black Sabbath: The End, and more.
We'd love Kurt Cobain: Montage Of Heck, Murder In The Front Row: The San Francisco Bay Area Thrash Metal Story, Death By Metal and Hired Gun to make it on there, too.
Thunderflix is available on multiple devices. It’s compatible with iPhones, Apple TVs, and Fire TVs, to name a few. The subscription window allows for Australian users, but without a PayPal option, some users may be apprehensive about providing their card details.

“Imagine a Netflix, but all metal,” is the pitch offered by creator Samuel Douek. The idea for Thunderflix came from an “inability to find high-quality, heavy metal to entertain himself as a lifelong music fan.”
According to a press release, the goal of Thunderflix is “to be the main library of official concerts and films that have come out in the last 30-plus years,” Consequence Of Sound notes. This library will contain “concerts that only existed on VHS or DVD, even those DVDs we got on the limited edition digipaks with bonus concerts or making ofs.”
No metal sub-genre is off limits, Douek affirms, “From death metal to speed to black to thrash and power and folk … it’s important people know, Thunderflix is made by metalheads for metalheads.
“We’re not a big corporation; we’re metalheads that want to enjoy our concerts and documentaries! We want to pay artists and labels their fair amount. And we want everyone to enjoy it!”
