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

Plus this week’s heavy metal soundtrack recommendation comes from the movie Scream 3.

Plus another 3 hours of classic metal inside Hangar 19.


martyfriedmanBetween 1990 and 2000 Marty played lead guitar for the legendary heavy metal band Megadeth. To put that into album’s terms that’s Rust in Piece through Risk, and includes some of the best metal albums of the 90′s. In 2002 Marty had already left Megadeth and moved to Japan where has done some solo work and has worked as a producer, musician for hire, and even a TV host. With the release of his amazing new solo album Inferno Marty is stepping back into the heavy metal limelight and he’s joining us inside Hangar 19 this weekend to debut a bunch of tracks from this record.

During the show Marty talks about some of his biggest influences and maybe his biggest was the double live album from Kiss called Alive! This week we will go In The Vault with Gene and Paul about the be all end all of live records.

metalmassacreFor this week’s Power Set we go back in time to 1982 and for a compilation put out by then completely unknown record label Metal Blade Records. A compilation that allowed us to hear Ratt and Metallica for the very first time. This collection of metal classics was huge on the tape trading circuit and it was just simply called Metal Massacre 1.

INFERNO_FRONT_FIXThen our Then & Now this week will feature more Marty Friedman, in fact throughout the show this week we will feature Megadeth/Marty Friedman Then & Now’s. The Thens will be songs that Marty co-wrote in Megadeth and the now are songs from his new album Inferno. An album which features CHILDREN OF BODOM’s Alexi Laih, REVOCATION’s Dave Davidson, Danko Jones and more.

Finally our heavy metal soundtrack recommendation comes from a soundtrack that Ministry’s Al Jourgensen oversaw that featured songs from Ministry, Rev Co, Prong among others. The Movie was 2008′s Wicked Lake.

It’s another 3 hours of metal inside Hangar 19



That should be a given inside Hangar 19, but once in awhile it’s good to have a reminder about the greatness of this genre. No guests this week just 100% pure metal!

It is a classic metal show after all so this week we go In the Vault with none other than AC/DC. This clip has the rest of the band including the late Bon Scott talking about the greatness of rhythm guitarist Malcolm Young who unfortunately has become ill and will not be writing or performing with the band on the upcoming new album and tour.

n0506zetro1In the wake of Steve “Zetro” Souza rejoining (for the third time) legendary bay area thrash metal band Exodus this week’s Power Set features three songs from the hey-day of thrash and one from Zetro’s second stint in the band.

CrowbarsymmetryinblackcdThe sludgier side of metal was born in New Orleans and the band Crowbar has helped lead us through the muck. They have just released their tenth studio album entitled Symmetry in Black. This week’s Then & Now will feature a classic and a new song written in honor of the late Type O Negative frontman Peter Steele.

Then this week’s Heavy Metal soundtrack recommendation is actually taken from a classic video game that was inspired by all the metal legends. It is said the 1993 video game Doom’s intro scene was based off King Diamond’s “The Family Ghost” and some of the music was based off Metallica’s “Phantom Lord” & “Master of Puppets” along with metal songs. In fact find all the metal songs that Doom was influenced by right here on this Doom music wiki.

This and another three hours of 100% Heavy Metal inside Hangar 19. If it’s not on your favorite hard rock radio station call, email, tweet, or whatever and let them know you need your metal fix.


When a band covers a song it can be the ultimate tribute to their heroes and to their peers. Take Metallica’s Garage Inc. album or the latest tribute record to Dio. There are incredible versions of incredible songs on some amazing records. There are also live records with cover songs, or songs recorded in the studio and used as B sides or soundtrack songs. This weekend inside Hangar 19 it’s classic (and a couple of current) metal bands covering other rock and metal bands.

We are going to go In the Vault with Motley Crue circa 1985. Of course they had a huge song with their cover of “Smoking in the Boys Room” from the album Theater of Pain.

nativity_in_blackThis week’s Power Set is a tribute to Black Sabbath. Both Megadeth and Pantera have covered Sabbath more than once and we’ll hear some gems from both bands this week taken from Nativity in Black 1 and 2. Both records were tributes to the classic 1970′s Black Sabbath line-up.

f4bf3918f75592183f45ceea22db2f56In the last few years the female fronted band Halestorm have become world wide rock stars. In 2011 they put out a covers e.p. called ReAniMate: The Covers E.P. The disc starts off with a pretty killer cover of Skid Row’s “Slave to the Grind.” So this week’s Then & Now has both the Skid Row version and the Halestorm version.

maxresdefaultOur soundtrack recommendation is something a little different as it will be a couple of metal bands covering wrestling theme music from the album WWF: Forceable Entry. 

This plus metal covers by and from Annihilator, Sepultura, Guns N’ Roses, Anthrax, and even a female tribute band to Iron Maiden for 3 hours of metal inside Hangar 19.
