METAL BABY PLAYS DRUMS TO PANTERA

A couple of weeks ago there was a video that took over the world heavy metal on youtube. The video is of a 8 month old baby named Wyatt drumming along to Pantera’s classic “5 Minutes Alone” In case you didn’t see it check it out.

Well Wyatt took the big stage on Jimmy Kimmel Live! to prove that it could be done live.

 

INTERVIEW: SCOTT IAN OF ANTHRAX

unnamedYou know Scott Ian as that guy from Anthrax but Scott is also an actor, a television host, a comic book guru, and now an author. Scott has just released his book Scott Ian: The Story of That Guy from Anthrax. It’s a good read and not just for fans either. Scott stopped by for a quick conversation but all things Anthrax and his new book.

 

DAVE LOMBARDO STEPS INTO THE HANGAR

25e77aea5fIf the name Dave Lombardo doesn’t immediately ring a bell maybe this will help. Dave is one of the founding members of Slayer, playing drums in the legendary band through out the 80’s and again in the 2000’s. He also played on Testament’s 1999 album The Gathering. Then there are his many other projects like Grip Inc. or his newest band Philm and being the drummer for the Mike Patton fronted The Fantomas. That’s a lot of killer metal coming from one guy, good thing Dave Lombardo is joining us in the Hangar this weekend to walk us through it all.

With all the many projects of Dave Lombardo he will be involved in all our normal features like The Fantoma’s album The Director’s Cut being the subject of our Heavy Metal soundtrack recommendation. Then we will crank up Testament for our Power Set and go In the Vault with Grip Inc.

But for our Then and Now we go back to one of the best metal releases of 2014, Exodus’ Blood in, Blood Out. The title track will the now for an Exodus Then & Now. In the meantime check out the video.

It’s another 3 hours of old school metal with metal from Iron Maiden, Motorhead, Suicidal Tendencies, Kiss, Venom, Metallica and of course this week’s guest Dave Lombardo inside Hangar 19.

MACHINE HEAD TOURING BY THEMSELVES

Machine-Head-2014In something reminiscent of Metallica’s “Wherever I May Roam” tour Machine Head have decided to go out on the road with no openers and just play clubs around North America by themselves.

Machine Head singer Robb Flynn said this:

We’re doing “An Evening With” Machine Head.
Meaning: it’ll just be us, folks.
We are really excited about the idea, playing longer sets, throwing in some deep cuts, and just having our own world.  Promoters in the US seem really stoked about it, some have said it feels like “an event.”
Venue space permitting we might do a video montage (“we’re gonna need a MON-TAGE!”) beforehand. We’ll see.
