Metal Insider posted this but it’s a christmas card sent out to the fan club members of Iron Maiden that possibly hints a new album and tour in 2014.
Their last studio album The Final Frontier came out in 2010.
Today (Dec. 8th) is the anniversary of former Pantera guitarist Dimebag Darrell’s tragic death. It was ten years ago that Nathan Gale walked into the back of the Alrosa Nightclub in Columbus, OH, went on stage where the band Damageplan had just started their set, took out a gun and shot the legendary metal guitarist and longtime road-crew member Mayhem to death. This weekend in the Hangar we will celebrate his life and crank up Pantera as loud as it will go. For now enjoy some old school interviews and appearances from Dimebag.

Max was of course the lead singer and guitarist for Sepultura up until the late 90’s when he left and formed the band Soulfly. Max has done many other projects as well like Nailbomb, Killer Be Killed and the band Cavalera Conspiracy a band he formed with his brother Igor who had also played in the mighty Sepultura. In fact check out the video for their latest tune ‘Babylonian Pandemonium”
(Cavalera Conspiracy promo picture from the official site.)
Also this week in the Hangar we will go In the Vault with Nikki Sixx of Motley Crue in 2007 on the Howard Stern show talking about his divorce.
Then our Then & Now features a new super group from the minds of legendary drummer Carmine Appice (Vanilla Fudge/Cactus/Ozzy) & singer Jeff Lynn Turner (Rainbow/Deep Purple/Yngwie Malmsteen) called Rated X.
And this week’s heavy metal soundtrack recommendation comes from season 3 of the Walking Dead. A scene that has Merel cranking up some Ted Nugent and Motorhead to go have himself a good old fashioned zombie killing!
All this plus another 3 hours of old school heavy metal this and every weekend inside Hangar 19.
