Deathgasm tells the tale of a teenage Kiwi metalhead sent to live with his ultra-conservative aunt and uncle in small-town New Zealand. Until all hell breaks loose, and it’s up to a group of headbanging heroes to fight off a demon invasion.

The low-brow, high-octane, and hilarious film features a soundtrack that is an ear-splitting collection of local and international bands.

Music 101’s resident bogan, Craig Hayes, caught up with Deathgasm director Jason Lei Howden to discuss shredding guitars and the satanic apocalypse before the film’s local premiere at the 2015 New Zealand International Film Festival.
