JOE ELLIOTT FROM DEF LEPPARD IS IN THE HANGAR

Joe 03If you don’t think Def Leppard aren’t metal enough to get inside the Hangar you’d be wrong. When their first album On Through The Night came out it was on par to and considered part of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal. Their second album High ‘N’ Dry continued them down that path. It was 1983′s Pyromania that launched them into the stratosphere and shaped their sound to come on their following albums. Joe Elliott is the lead singer and we dig deep into the history of Def Leppard’s metal years this week in the Hangar.

Then for something a little more light hearted from the world of Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine we go In The Vault with Dave’s apperance on the Drew Carey Show in 1998 when he try’s out for Drew’s one night only band.

AnthraxStateOfEuphoria_ImprovedSpeaking of a Big 4 band our Power Set this week features a very underrated Anthrax album, State of Euphoria. Their 1988 follow-up to Among the Living had a lot to live up to sure but the album get’s a bad rap and we’ve got a few songs to prove it. Plus this week the album celebrates its 26th anniversary, being released September 18, 1988.

540F1D3C-exodus-premier-salt-the-wound-track-featuring-metallicas-kirk-hammett-lyric-video-streaming-imageWe’ll stay away from Gothenburg this week for our Then & Now but we will stay on the thrash metal route. By this point you may know that Steve “Zetro” Souza is back in Exodus and that original Exodus (and current Metallica) guitarist Kirk Hammet plays on their new record. The song is called “Salt in the Wound” and we have it for an Exodus Then & Now.

Finally this week’s Heavy Metal Soundtrack Recommendation is from the 2007 comedy Balls of Fury

Hell yeah! It’s another 3 hours of old school metal inside Hangar 19, you ready?

 

 

27 LIVE METALLICA ALBUMS

This post is from Metallica.com:

2010_WM_stage_800We’ve been extremely proud to offer virtually every show we’ve done in the past ten years as a download within days of the shows happening… sometimes even hours! Over the years we’ve been able to offer more download options adding HD audio and Apple lossless files to the mix, but we still get requests for the “old school” compact disc. To celebrate ten years of Live Metallica, we’re going to make that happen! Starting today through the end of this year, every show that we’ve played in 2014 will be released on CD! All shows with the exception of the MAP Benefit concert and Glastonbury are from the By Request tour with songs that you voted on… each night on the tour presented a different set list.

We want to keep it simple so we’ll go in order of when the shows were played starting with Bogotá, ColombiaQuito, Ecuador and Lima, Perufrom the March South American run. Next week the next three shows will be available and so on, rolling out three shows at a time on Mondays. For those of you who want it all, we’re also giving you a chance to pre-order a box set with all 27 shows included, which will ship in December. There’s that special concept of a volume discount and you’ll have a box to store all your CD’s in. CD’s will be priced at the very clever price of $19.81 a pop with the box set at $417.00 (spot the savings!) and you can place your orders at either LiveMetallica.com or in theMet Store.

And for you vinyl junkies, select shows will be released on limited edition 180-gram vinyl early next year. And once again, we here at your friendly Metallica HQ want your input as to which shows you would like to see on vinyl… YOU choose from the 27 shows we’ve played this year by voting for your favs here. We’ll take the top four that receive the most votes and press them up for you to order in early 2015.  Voting will close on September 26.

Let us know what you think and look for many more releases and some cool box sets in the New Year!

Looks like us die-hard Metallica fans are about to go broke

 

PRIMUS WITH DANNY CAREY

Well since Tool isn’t doing anything right now drummer Danny Carey is filling in for Primus’ Tim “Herb” Alexander while he is recovering from successful open heart surgery. Primus played Riot Fest in Denver and fans of both bands got a treat as Primus again with Danny Carey did a cover of Tool’s “Ænema, well it’s more of an interlude really. You can see the fan shoot footage of it below and while the audio quality isn’t very good plus and it’s still a pretty cool moment to see.

 

KYUSS FRONTMAN JOHN GARCIA IN THE HANGAR

10610674_467273366748849_5211889566923275352_nMeeting Nick Oliveri, Josh Homme and Brant Bjork in high school was the basis for Kyuss lead singer John Garcia. As he puts it the music heads find each other. From 1987 to their break up in 1995 this desert rock band gained a ton of fans by doing it on their own and popularizing a certain type of sound that was all their own. Now with the release of his first ever solo album John Garcia is back behind a mic where he belongs.

Of course we’ll go In the Vault this week and this time we are going to go back to the Hard N’ Heavy TV show for what amounts to a bunch of random thoughts from the band Faith No More.

xmarilyn-manson-sons-of-anarchy-s7e1.jpg.pagespeed.ic.6en3vIs2ciOur Power Set this week will come from Marilyn Manson in honor of his reoccurring roll on the FX TV show Sons of Anarchy. The show just started it’s final season and Mr. Manson is playing a white supremacist. Let’s not forget though the guy was a gigantic rock star who wrote evil and menacing Industrial Metal songs.

thehauntedexitwoundscdThis seems to be the year for new albums from Gothenburg, Sweden bands as now The Haunted have just hit with Exit Woulds their first since their former singer Marco Aro rejoined the band.

Our soundtrack recommendation this weekend goes back to The Crow. When you have a soundtrack this good it’s hard to play it more than once.

All this plus another 3 hours of classic heavy metal inside Hangar 19.

 

INTERVIEW: DERRICK GREEN OF SEPULTURA

31After Max Cavalera’s final performance with Sepultura in December of 1996 the band started the search for a new singer and in 1998 came Cleveland, OH native Derrick Green. Derrick has been in the band ever since and joined us in the Hangar to discuss the process of him becoming the frontman of one of metal’s most legendary bands. Plus check out their latest album The Mediator Between Head and Hands Must Be the Heart.
