700,000 Tons of Metal it’s an annual metal cruise ands this week. In honor we are cranking up metal from Arch Enemy, Napalm Death, Gravedigger, Annilator, and more. For more information click here and if you missed this year’s no problem there are plenty if metal cruises out there now, including cruises put on by Kiss and even Motorhead.

Of course with another weekend inside the Hangar upon us you will hear all these bands this weekend on the only classic metal show on radio, Hangar 19.

MORE METAL AND THEN SOME MORE METAL

Here’s what to expect while cranking up Hangar 19 this weekend:

First our Heavy Metal soundtrack recommendation comes from the expansive Tony Hawk video game world. These classic skateboarding video games have long supported heavy metal and punk rock from the original Tony Hawk Pro Skater to the new as yet untitled game due out this year on all the next gen systems. Certain installments have even featured playable characters like members of Metallica and Iron Maiden’s mascot Eddie. Iron Maiden’s music has been featured on two different games and we’ll hear those tracks this weekend.

foreverThis week’s Power Set is a tribute to Twisted Sister. 4 songs from the Twisted Forever album. It’s the 2001 tribute album that featured classic Sister songs redone by Motorhead, Anthrax, Overkill, Vision of Disorder and more.

We will go In The Vault with Guns N’ Roses explaining the video for “Welcome to the Jungle” from MTV’s Headbanger’s Ball in 1987. The clip below is actually the best of Headbanger’s Ball and we’ll be taking clips from it for the In the Vault segment for the next few weeks inside the Hangar

BlindguardianbeyondstandardOur Then & Now will feature one the most unapologetic power metal bands that have existed over the last 25 years. The band is Germany’s Blind Guardian. Their new album Beyond the Red Mirror is scheduled to be released on the 30th and the now will feature their new song “Twilight of the Gods.” While the then will be a song featuring Kia Hansen from Helloween and Gamma Ray fame called Valhalla taken off their 1989 album Follow the Blind.

All that plus metal from Suicidal Tendencies, Warlock, Crowbar, DIO and more this weekend inside Hangar 19.

CLASSIC ALBUM SPOTLIGHT: MOTLEY CRUE

The self titled Motley Crue album turned 20 years old last year and is the one Motley Crue album to have a different singer. That singer is John Corabi. This album is also the follow up to Motley Crue pinnacle Dr. Feelgood. The deck was stacked against this line-up of the Crue from the start. New singer, heavier sound, years passed between albums, and most of the popular 80’s metal bands had fallen out of favor for that sound from Seattle. Think about this for a second, between the release of Feelgood and self-titled Nirvana had put out Nevermind and Kurt Cobain was less than a month away from committing suicide. Still the John Corabi fronted Motley Crue 20 years later still sound fresh and current. With Motley hanging it up in 2014 John decided to go do some shows celebrating this album in it’s entirety and at the tours kick-off him and I sat down for a conversation about his time in Motley. John is in the Hangar this weekend and this record is why.

CRUEArtist: Motley Crue

Mick Mars says:

“I thought that was probably… To me, and I can only speak for me, I think that was probably the best album we’ve done. Musical-wise, the songs, I felt, were strong. And just musically, to me, it was, I guess, my BEATLES ‘White Album'; that’s kind of how I feel about that one. I’m not saying that any of my other albums are crummy or anything like that — I love every album that we did — but that one just has a special thing for me.”

RE-LIVE 2014 IN METAL

With new albums from legendary bands like Judas Priest and At The Gates, side project releases like Killer Be Killed and live albums or compilations from Metallica and Iron Maiden there was a lot of good metal to keep the speakers cranked throughout the year. This weekend inside the Hangar re-live all the great moments in metal from the year and some of the bad ones.

In 2014 we also lost some legendary members of the metal community like Dave Brockie or otherwise known as Oderus Urungus frontman of the band GWAR. Plus Wayne Static of the nu-metal band Static-X.

Crank up the new memories as we recap the year that was this weekend inside Hangar 19.

IN MEMORY OF DIMEBAG DARRELL

Today (Dec. 8th) is the anniversary of former Pantera guitarist Dimebag Darrell’s tragic death. It was ten years ago that Nathan Gale walked into the back of the Alrosa Nightclub in Columbus, OH, went on stage where the band Damageplan had just started their set, took out a gun and shot the legendary metal guitarist and longtime road-crew member Mayhem to death. This weekend in the Hangar we will celebrate his life and crank up Pantera as loud as it will go. For now enjoy some old school interviews and appearances from Dimebag.
