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.

SCOTT IAN IS IN THE HANGAR

unnamedYeah he’s that one guy from that one heavy metal band that you might have heard of, and yeah you may have seen him on some random VH1 show but truly in our world he is a giant. Scott Ian is one of the founding members of one of the big 4 of thrash metal bands Anthrax. For 30 years Anthrax have made it through thick and thin to be where they are now and it’s about damn time one of them wrote a book. Yes Scott Ian is now an author writing the book I’m the Man: The Story of that Guy from Anthrax. The book is out now and it’s pretty awesome read. Scott gets in the Hangar to tell us all about it and some Anthrax stories as well.

A few weeks ago I (Cutter) got to see Doro Pesch bring her 30th anniversary show to New York’s Gramercy Ballroom and what an incredible show it was. Doro performed everything you’d want including old Warlock songs plus a few covers like “Breaking the Law” by Judas Priest and “Egypt” by DIO which is on the Dio tribute album. Not to mention special guests like Bobby “Blitz” Ellsworth from Overkill and Jeff Waters from Annihilator. This week to help celebrate this German metal Queen’s dominance in metal we are going In the Vault to one of her first appearance’s on the original Headbanger’s Ball.

machine-head-now-we-die-single-cover-art-2014With the release of a new Machine Head album Bloodstones & Diamonds it would normally mean a new tour and chances to see the legendary bay area band all over the world. Unfortunately a tour was cancelled and it sounds like the band is waiting to do things their own way. We can’t fault them for that but the internet “trolls” weren’t exactly happy about some jokes singer Robb Flynn made. Forget all that we’re cranking up a Power Set of Machine Head tunes this week.

cavaleraconspiracypandemoniumbiggerThis week’s Then & Now features the latest output but the brothers Cavalera. First Max and Igor were together in Sepultura and in 2007 decided to write new music again under the name Cavalera Conspiracy. They have just released their 3rd record Pandemomnium so we’ll crank a new song and an old school Sepultura song as well.

Also this week’s Heavy Metal Soundtrack Recommendation comes from the CBS dramatic series Criminal Minds. Believe it or not a couple episodes every season will feature a metal song in the show. We’ll look to their most recent Halloween episode were they had a song from the band Beartooth playing and an episode from Season 9 that featured Toxic Halocaust.

This plus another 3 hours of classic metal on your home for true heavy metal Hangar 19.

CLASSIC ALBUM SPOTLIGHT: MOB RULES

Released 33 years ago this week Mob Rules is the 2nd album from Dio era of Black Sabbath. One listen to this album and you know that if Ronnie James Dio, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler and Vinny Appice this era of Sabbath could have been as big and maybe bigger than the Ozzy fronted version of Sabbath. That’s saying something when we’re talking about the band that invited heavy f****** metal! It’s just hard to deny the magic that Dio and Iommi had together.

Mob rulesArtist: Black Sabbath

Album: Mob Rules

Release Date: November 4, 1981

Recommended listening: Turn Up the Night, The Mob Rules, The Sign of the Southern Cross

Anthony Maisano from Metal Insider says:

This is my favorite album of all time. It’s just a masterpiece. This album is EVERYTHING Heaven and Hellwas, but with a TON more fire and energy behind the band. Songs like “Voodoo” and the title track are some of Iommi’s best riffs of all time. Period. Any era of Sabbath. Then you have songs like “Falling Off the Edge of the World” and “The Sign of the Southern Cross” which shows an ambitious side of Sabbath, which was never, ever seen before this album. “Slipping Away” has an amazingly powerful Dio chorus, and “Over and Over” might be one of Sabbath’s most depressing songs ever. Where Heaven and Hell had, what I consider to be, safer, more melodically focused material, Mob Rules is straight up heavy Sabbath material, with that untouchable Dio kick to it. Vinny Appice adds a rock solid groove that this album needed, and really compliments Geezer Butler well in a different way than Bill Ward did. He’s not as busy as Bill Ward, any my preference for Vinny is by no means a knock on Bill Ward, but I think Vinny is far heavier, and just has a great groove for these songs.

HALLOWEEN METAL MASSACRE 3

oderusripAs most of us celebrate Halloween through the weekend we give you the soundtrack for your evil ways. As we resurrect the immortal Oderus Urungus of GWAR you’ll get to hear him explain how humans should be enslaved plus a ton of great GWAR music. The man behind Oderus Dave Brockie passed away earlier this year from a heroin overdose at the age of 50 but Oderus lives on forever.

Not only will we hear Oderus’ last ever conversation for Hangar 19 but we are also going In the Vault with his and Beefcake the Mighty’s appearance in 1990 on the Joan Rivers Show, who also passed away earlier this year.

keeper7keysOur power set will feature 4 songs from the band Helloween’s album’s Keeper of the Seven Keys Parts 1 & 2. I mean they are called Helloween and their song Halloween is metal staple.

ObituaryInkedInBloodThis week’s Then & Now is from the legendary death metal band Obituary. As they celebrate the 25th anniversary of their Roadrunner Records debut Slowly We Rot we’ll hear a tune from their new album Inked in Blood.

We can’t have a Hangar 19 Halloween Metal Massacre with out some Creeper himself. This week’s soundtrack recommendation comes from the Rob Zombie remakes of the Halloween movies and will feature tunes by Kiss and Motorhead.

All that plus 3 hours of old school heavy metal to get your Halloween fix. Oh and also The Misfits doing Monster Mash this week inside Hangar 19.

IN THE VAULT: UGLY KID JOE ’93

This is a Power 30 Interview 1993 with Whitfield Crane and Dave Fortman of Ugly Kid Joe. What makes this great is both Whit and Dave try their best to make the interviewer uncomfortable as they pretty much just hit on her the whole time.
