NEW WAVE OF AMERICAN HEAVY METAL INSIDE THE HANGAR

NickhipaThis explosive era of heavy metal took the metal and even hard rock world by storm at the turn of the century. Launching the careers of mainstay bands like Killswitch Engage, All That Remains, Lamb of God, and Avenged Sevenfold among many others. On the heavier side of things San Diego’s As I Lay Dying gained an extreme amount of fans and a ton of respect. Earlier this year their lead singer Tim Lambesis was arrested and sentenced to prison for attempting to have his wife murdered causing the rest of the band to hire a new singer and change their name to Wovenwar. Nick Hipa who plays guitar in Wovenwar and did play guitar in As I Lay Dying joins us to tell us the story of what the hell happened to As I Lay Dying.

During this era we saw the rise of not one but two Pantera side projects. Damageplan featuring Vinnie Paul and Dimebag Darrell, and Superjoint Ritual featuring Phil Anselmo. With the recent announcement that Superjoint Ritual will be active again for the first time in a decade we go In the Vault with the entire band when the appeared on Fuse TV’s Uranium.

In the early part of the 21st century there were many great soundtracks as so many B-level movies came out featuring heavy music on it’s soundtrack. One of them was the movie that paired two of horrors greatest villains in a film where they battle to the death, 2003′s Freddy Vs. Jason.

3 hours of New Wave of American Heavy Metal on this labor day weekend inside Hangar 19.

Then our soundtrack recommendation this week comes from the modern video game Watch Dogs, which features a couple stellar metal tracks as part of it’s long list of music used in the game.

All this and another three hours of classic metal this weekend inside Hangar 19

100 % PURE METAL

We’ve had some great guests inside the Hangar recently and as much as we love hanging out with and talking to these legendary metal figures this week we are turning the spotlight back to where it belongs, the music. It’s 3 hours of old school metal featuring some of the best that metal has to offer.

We will also go In the Vault with Trent Reznor and Nine Inch Nails. Trent has had his moments over the years where he can get a little angry. Of course listening to his music is a pretty dead giveaway of that. Gigwise has put together a compilation video of Trent Reznor’s angriest moments.

Queensryche_-_Operation_Mindcrime_coverThis week’s Power Set will feature 4 songs from Queensryhe’s set of Operation Mindcrime albums. Since former singer Geoff Tate is now going by the band name Operation Mindcrime and he is the only one who can perform those two albums in the entirety live it’s time to take another lesson to one of the greatest concept records in history.

MadballHardcoreLivesNew York has been home over the years to some of the greatest metal in history and more specifically to the cross over genre Hard Core. Hard core is a mix between the heaviness of metal and the attitude of punk. No one can deny the significance of the band Agnostic Front but it was the spin off band Madball that took it to the mainstream. Madball has just put out a new record entitled Hard Core Lives and we will feature it during this week’s Then & Now.

Finally this week’s Soundtrack recommendation is from the original Fast and The Furious, but not the first edition of the soundtrack which featured mostly rap music. It’s from the album titled More Fast and the Furious which featured some killer hard rock and heavy metal.

A PLETHORA OF METAL STARS

korn-cutterWhat happens when you get to go hang out at a four day music festival packed tight with metal bands? If you’re me you get to have some pretty amazing conversations in front of a live audience. This week in the Hangar we get some music of course and some quick talks with some metal legends, and some soon to be metal legends like Head and Fieldy from Korn, Phil Labonte from All That Remains, Tom Maxwell from HELLYEAH! and Ivan Moody from Five Finger Death Punch all from the Rock USA festival in Wisconsin.

We will then go In the Vault with Anders Fridén from In Flames from actually just a few years ago courtesy of Horns Up Rocks.

Rob-Halford-Metal-God-HoustonThis week’s Power Set will feature four songs that feature The Metal God himself Rob Halford. Rob has guested on some pretty big time records with some pretty big time bands including Krokus’ Headhunter, Ugly Kid Joe America’s Least Wanted, Five Finger Death Punch’s The Wrong Side of Heaven and the Righteous Side of Hell, and even the Buffy the Vampire Slayer Soundtrack.

hellyeah-bloodOur Then & Now will have to feature the, no longer a supergroup but a real band, HELLYEAH! The band that features former Pantera drummer Vinnie Paul plus Mudvayne vocalist Chad Grey and of course our guest former Nothingface guitarist Tom Maxwell put out their 4th album Blood for Blood recently and is probably the best of their career.

Finally a Soundtrack recommendation that features all kinds of killer metal and hard rock from The World’s Strongest Man Competition. This soundtrack from 2008 is meant to be the music to accompany the competition and also features the theme song.

All of this plus 3 hours of classic metal inside Hangar 19

 

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.
