cropped-gwarbq2014headerThe 5th annual GWAR-B-Q is going to be a can’t miss experience for any GWAR fan after the death of frontman Oderus Urungus (AKA Dave Brockie.) The  night before the party a special memorial will be held in with the head of ceremonies being Jello Biafra of The Dead Kennedy’s. Also recently announced The Misfits will be performing during the B-B-Q as will Hatebreed, Goatwhore, Body Count and more.

Here’s the announcement from GWAR:

GWAR demands that all attend the Dave Brockie Memorial one day before the GWAR B-Q. Fans, friends and possibly protesters from the Westboro Baptist Church will gather from 4:00pmto 7:00pm on Friday, August 15 at Hadad’s Lake. We can now announce that Jello Biafra – punk icon, Dead Kennedys front man and actor in GWAR’s long-form video Skulhedface – will serve as the memorial’s master of ceremonies. Tribute will be paid to both Brockie and Oderus Urungus, as the Scumdog soldier will receive a Viking funeral set ablaze upon the SS Boat. Show up and bid Oderus farewell as he travels to Valhalla and beyond!

oldexodudusWhat?! Ok so what you’re saying Exodus camp is Steve “Zetro” Souza is back as the singer and you have founding member plus gigantic rock star as a member of Metallica Kirk Hammett playing on a tune for the new Exodus album? Well played guys, well played.

There doesn’t seem to be a release date yet but in talking with Rolling Stone Magazine Mr. Hammett had the following to say:

“Me, recording a solo on their album was a huge thing for me. Other than the Exodus demo that’s been heard by a lot of people, it’s the only time I ever recorded with Exodus. It was a huge thing for me.”

He adds:

So there you have it






By live we mean live metal! We are playing metal from some of the greatest live albums ever released in the world of hard rock and heavy metal. Here are a few that’ll we be cranking metal from.

Metallica Live S***: Binge and Purge

Metallica’s 1993 box set featuring 3 videos and 3 CD’s plus tour booklet and stencil of the famous scary guy logo all inside of mock up of a Metallica road case featuring concerts from Seattle, San Diego and Mexico City was a fan’s dream come true.

Kiss Alive

We cannot call ourselves a classic metal radio show and not play something off the live album that popularized the live album during an all live metal version of Hangar 19.

Slayer Decade of Aggression: Live

This 1991 double LP or CD live album from Slayer pretty much cemented just how fast, technical and evil they were really were. It’s also the final release from the classic Slayer era and pretty much summed up the intensity of unholy trifecta of albums.

Judas Priest Unleashed in the East

Recorded in Japan while on tour for Hell Bent for Leather upon this live album’s release it was the best selling Judas Priest album to date. Of course that would change.

Anthrax Live: The Island Years

It’s as simple as what the title says it’s Anthrax live in the late 80′s when they were still on Island records releasing thrash metal classics.

Ozzy Osbourne Tribute

It’s a live tribute to the greatest guitarist to ever live…enough said

That’s just a taste of some the most legendary live metal records you’ll hear from this weekend inside Hangar 19.



Dave2What can possibly say about Dave Mustaine that hasn’t already been said. By this point you know the story Dave got his start in Metallica but was fired just before the recording of Kill ém All. He then hooked up with bassist Dave Ellefson and formed a band that became almost as big as his previous one did. The legendary Megadeth frontman steps inside the Hangar once again for a conversation about Megadeth and shares some old stories, and some political ones as well on the latest Hangar 19 Podcast edition.

Overkill_-_White_Devil_ArmoryToday marks the release of Overkill’s 17th studio album White Devil Armory. Bobby “Blitz” Ellsworth joined us in the Hangar a couple of weeks ago to talk about the record and the history of Overkill. It’s another lesson in old school thrash done the right way. Check out the videos below for a taste of the record and a look behind the scenes with Overkill bassist D.D. Verni
