COOKING WITH PHIL ANSELMO #4

Yes the parody cooking animated series Cooking with Phil Anselmo is back for it’s fourth installment and this time Phil Anselmo actually lends his real voice to the episode. It also features guest appearances (voice parodies) from Chuck Billy of Testament, Ozzy, Chris Cornell of Soundgarden, Evan Seinfield of Biohazard/Anika 7, Lips from Anvil and guitarist Buckethead.

To me the best part is how they actually incorporate classic songs from these artists into recipes. Credit goes to Joey Siler who birthed this show out of his brain and does all the animation. Also to the Pantera tribute band Good Friend and A Bottle Booze for doing the music.

 

 

100 % PURE METAL

We’ve had some great guests inside the Hangar recently and as much as we love hanging out with and talking to these legendary metal figures this week we are turning the spotlight back to where it belongs, the music. It’s 3 hours of old school metal featuring some of the best that metal has to offer.

We will also go In the Vault with Trent Reznor and Nine Inch Nails. Trent has had his moments over the years where he can get a little angry. Of course listening to his music is a pretty dead giveaway of that. Gigwise has put together a compilation video of Trent Reznor’s angriest moments.

Queensryche_-_Operation_Mindcrime_coverThis week’s Power Set will feature 4 songs from Queensryhe’s set of Operation Mindcrime albums. Since former singer Geoff Tate is now going by the band name Operation Mindcrime and he is the only one who can perform those two albums in the entirety live it’s time to take another lesson to one of the greatest concept records in history.

MadballHardcoreLivesNew York has been home over the years to some of the greatest metal in history and more specifically to the cross over genre Hard Core. Hard core is a mix between the heaviness of metal and the attitude of punk. No one can deny the significance of the band Agnostic Front but it was the spin off band Madball that took it to the mainstream. Madball has just put out a new record entitled Hard Core Lives and we will feature it during this week’s Then & Now.

Finally this week’s Soundtrack recommendation is from the original Fast and The Furious, but not the first edition of the soundtrack which featured mostly rap music. It’s from the album titled More Fast and the Furious which featured some killer hard rock and heavy metal.

 

METAL TRIBUTES TO ROBIN WILLIAMS

Yesterday August 11th from now moving forward will be known as the day we found out Robin Williams had passed away. The actor/comedian was 63 years old and had been suffering from severe depression. There weren’t many people in this world that weren’t fans of his or at least enjoyed a few of his movies. The metal world feels the same,

INTERVIEW: ZAKK WYLDE

zakkandmeAt this point we all know who Zakk Wylde is. He’s the former guitarist for Ozzy, the current leader of the Black Label Society and one of the greatest guitarists in metal or rock the world has known. He also finds himself inside the Hangar on a pretty regular basis. Here’s a quick conversation with Zakk Wylde on the Hangar 19 Podcast edition.

A PLETHORA OF METAL STARS

korn-cutterWhat happens when you get to go hang out at a four day music festival packed tight with metal bands? If you’re me you get to have some pretty amazing conversations in front of a live audience. This week in the Hangar we get some music of course and some quick talks with some metal legends, and some soon to be metal legends like Head and Fieldy from Korn, Phil Labonte from All That Remains, Tom Maxwell from HELLYEAH! and Ivan Moody from Five Finger Death Punch all from the Rock USA festival in Wisconsin.

We will then go In the Vault with Anders Fridén from In Flames from actually just a few years ago courtesy of Horns Up Rocks.

Rob-Halford-Metal-God-HoustonThis week’s Power Set will feature four songs that feature The Metal God himself Rob Halford. Rob has guested on some pretty big time records with some pretty big time bands including Krokus’ Headhunter, Ugly Kid Joe America’s Least Wanted, Five Finger Death Punch’s The Wrong Side of Heaven and the Righteous Side of Hell, and even the Buffy the Vampire Slayer Soundtrack.

hellyeah-bloodOur Then & Now will have to feature the, no longer a supergroup but a real band, HELLYEAH! The band that features former Pantera drummer Vinnie Paul plus Mudvayne vocalist Chad Grey and of course our guest former Nothingface guitarist Tom Maxwell put out their 4th album Blood for Blood recently and is probably the best of their career.

Finally a Soundtrack recommendation that features all kinds of killer metal and hard rock from The World’s Strongest Man Competition. This soundtrack from 2008 is meant to be the music to accompany the competition and also features the theme song.

All of this plus 3 hours of classic metal inside Hangar 19
