IT’S AN ALL LIVE HANGAR 19

By live we mean live metal! We are playing metal from some of the greatest live albums ever released in the world of hard rock and heavy metal. Here are a few that’ll we be cranking metal from.

Metallica Live S***: Binge and Purge

Metallica’s 1993 box set featuring 3 videos and 3 CD’s plus tour booklet and stencil of the famous scary guy logo all inside of mock up of a Metallica road case featuring concerts from Seattle, San Diego and Mexico City was a fan’s dream come true.

Kiss Alive

We cannot call ourselves a classic metal radio show and not play something off the live album that popularized the live album during an all live metal version of Hangar 19.

Slayer Decade of Aggression: Live

This 1991 double LP or CD live album from Slayer pretty much cemented just how fast, technical and evil they were really were. It’s also the final release from the classic Slayer era and pretty much summed up the intensity of unholy trifecta of albums.

Judas Priest Unleashed in the East

Recorded in Japan while on tour for Hell Bent for Leather upon this live album’s release it was the best selling Judas Priest album to date. Of course that would change.

Anthrax Live: The Island Years

It’s as simple as what the title says it’s Anthrax live in the late 80′s when they were still on Island records releasing thrash metal classics.

Ozzy Osbourne Tribute

It’s a live tribute to the greatest guitarist to ever live…enough said

That’s just a taste of some the most legendary live metal records you’ll hear from this weekend inside Hangar 19.

INTERVIEW: DAVE MUSTAINE

Dave2What can possibly say about Dave Mustaine that hasn’t already been said. By this point you know the story Dave got his start in Metallica but was fired just before the recording of Kill ém All. He then hooked up with bassist Dave Ellefson and formed a band that became almost as big as his previous one did. The legendary Megadeth frontman steps inside the Hangar once again for a conversation about Megadeth and shares some old stories, and some political ones as well on the latest Hangar 19 Podcast edition.

NEW OVERKILL IN STORES TODAY

Overkill_-_White_Devil_ArmoryToday marks the release of Overkill’s 17th studio album White Devil Armory. Bobby “Blitz” Ellsworth joined us in the Hangar a couple of weeks ago to talk about the record and the history of Overkill. It’s another lesson in old school thrash done the right way. Check out the videos below for a taste of the record and a look behind the scenes with Overkill bassist D.D. Verni

THE METAL GOD IS BACK

Rob-Halford-Metal-God-HoustonWe are homered and humbled to once again have The Metal God Rob Halford of Judas Priest back inside Hangar 19. With the release of Judas Priest’s 17th studio album Redeemer of Souls there is a lot to catch up on. Plus Rob will go in detail on 3 new metal classics as we do a Judas Priest Then and Now each of our 3 hours of the heaviest music around.

Remembering that Judas Priest are one of two legendary metal band’s from Birmingham, England we are going In The Vault with the mighty Black Sabbath.

 

Speaking of Sabbath they just recently headlined the annual Hyde Park music festival in London and while rumors were abound it would be their last show it was Faith No More that came out and stunned the crowd by finishing their set with their first new music in 17 years. This week’s Power Set is taken from their 1991 live album Live at Brixton. 

Then our Heavy Metal soundtrack recommendation is from Hollywood’s re do of Bad News Bears featuring tunes from Alice Cooper and Senses Fail
