IN THE VAULT: TESTAMENT

On this weekend’s Hangar 19 we are focusing on all the amazing metal bands playing Knotfest in California next weekend including Slipknot, Anthrax, Black Label Society, HELLYEAH! Napalm Death, Fear Factory, Prong, and many more. One of those bands is Testament, here is their In the Vault segment taken from them in the studio working on the album Practice What You Preach.

 

INTERVIEW: FRANK BELLO OF ANTHRAX

anthraxwmfrank2This was pretty cool because I just randomly had the chance to sit down and have a talk with the bassist of Anthrax Frank Bello. Listen I’ve been a huge fan of Anthrax since I first heard the album Among The Living so it was pretty cool to have a laid back conversation with Frank about the direction of the band, the past drama of line-up changes and the ups and downs of the music business and how it pertains to metal. We caught up just before they left for the Motorboat cruise and besides a few technical difficulties it was an honor and a pleasure to talk to Mr. Bello on the latest Hangar 19 Podcast edition.

 

THINK SLIPKNOT HAS LOST A STEP?

sk_cover_GC.5 The Grey Chapter is the latest album from the Des Moines, IA band and it will be out next week Tuesday. This weekend in the Hangar we’ll be cranking some old school Slipknot to get fired up for Knotfest but have you heard the three new songs out from Slipknot? Check out the videos below and if you can seriously tell me that Slipknot has gone soft you and I aren’t going to be friends anymore. Ok but for real check these out.

 

REDEEMER OF SOULS TOUR PREVIEW IN THE HANGAR

Judas-Priest-Redeemer-of-Souls-Tour-2014This weekend inside Hangar 19 we will preview and get you all fired up for the this week’s kick off of the current Judas Priest North American Tour with opening band Steel Panther. We will cranks up some choice live Priest tracks from previous Judas Priest live records and special editions like Priest….Live! and Unleashed in the East. Plus we’ll hear some tasty Steel Panther cuts and get some words from the Metal God himself Rob Halford.

Comedian/actor/game show host Drew Carey must be quite the metal head because a few week’s ago we heard Dave Mustaine of Megadeth’s appearance on the show and this week we are going In the Vault with Motorhead’s appearance on the show.

lady_gaga___heavy_metal_lover_by_plgoldens-d54qzggSpeaking of mainstream pop culture icons being metal heads did you know that eccentric pop star Lady Gaga is actually metal head? I swear we’ve spotted her at a couple of different Slayer shows over the years and during a recent Redit she explained who her top metal bands were. This week’s Power Set will feature those four bands. They are Metallica, Iron Maiden, AC/DC and Black Sabbath. That’s not a bad list at all.

PhilmcoverNow mentioning Slayer of course they have a long history and one of the stranger parts is the story of their drummer situation. Going back and forth between Dave Lombardo and Paul Bostaph. Since Paul took over the drumming duties again were is Dave Lombardo? Well he’s playing in a band called Philm who just released their 2nd album. This week’s Then & Now will feature an old Slayer track plus a new Philm track.

Then there is this week’s Heavy Metal Soundtrack recomendation that also features Slayer, but it’s their version of Iron Butterfly’s “In-a-Gada-Davida.” The movie it’s from is 1987′s Less Than Zero starring Robert Downy Jr.

It’s another 3 hours of classic heavy metal inside Hangar 19.
