REDEEMER OF SOULS TOUR PREVIEW IN THE HANGAR

Judas-Priest-Redeemer-of-Souls-Tour-2014This weekend inside Hangar 19 we will preview and get you all fired up for the this week’s kick off of the current Judas Priest North American Tour with opening band Steel Panther. We will cranks up some choice live Priest tracks from previous Judas Priest live records and special editions like Priest….Live! and Unleashed in the East. Plus we’ll hear some tasty Steel Panther cuts and get some words from the Metal God himself Rob Halford.

Comedian/actor/game show host Drew Carey must be quite the metal head because a few week’s ago we heard Dave Mustaine of Megadeth’s appearance on the show and this week we are going In the Vault with Motorhead’s appearance on the show.

I swear we’ve spotted her at a couple of different Slayer shows over the years and during a recent Redit she explained who her top metal bands were. This week’s Power Set will feature those four bands. They are Metallica, Iron Maiden, AC/DC and Black Sabbath. That’s not a bad list at all.

PhilmcoverNow mentioning Slayer of course they have a long history and one of the stranger parts is the story of their drummer situation. Going back and forth between Dave Lombardo and Paul Bostaph. Since Paul took over the drumming duties again were is Dave Lombardo? Well he’s playing in a band called Philm who just released their 2nd album. This week’s Then & Now will feature an old Slayer track plus a new Philm track.

Then there is this week’s Heavy Metal Soundtrack recomendation that also features Slayer, but it’s their version of Iron Butterfly’s “In-a-Gada-Davida.” The movie it’s from is 1987′s Less Than Zero starring Robert Downy Jr.

It’s another 3 hours of classic heavy metal inside Hangar 19.

INTERVIEW: SLASH

slashWhat could I possibly say about Slash that hasn’t already been said. He’s a legend without a doubt. From his early days as the lead axeman in Guns N’ Roses to his own work in Slash’s Snakepit plus Velvet Revolver and his latest project with Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators. He’s not just metal, he’s the epitome of the guitar in hard rock. It’s Slash discussing all his latest happenings and some old stuff as well on the latest Hangar 19 Podcast edition.

 

FRANK BELLO OF ANTHRAX JOINS US IN THE HANGAR

anthraxwmfrank2Believe it or not no member of Anthrax has joined us in the Hangar since we launched, well this weekend that changes as bassist Frank Bello steps up fresh off the Motorboat cruise with Motorhead. Anthrax have also just released their live concert film Chili on Hell. Frank has stories to tell and we have Anthrax music to crank up.

cover_cliffemallSpeaking of amazing metal bass players it was 28 years ago that the world lost Metallica bassist Cliff Burton. Cliff is widely regarded as one of the greatest metal bassists to ever live. We will revisit Cliff ‘em All for this week’s In the Vault.

MalAlso if you missed the news recently AC/DC founding member and rhythm guitarist plus songwriter Malcolm Young has dementia so bad that he is no longer playing with the band and has sat out recording their new album plus will not be joining them on tour. So we’ll dedicate a Power Set of some of the best Malcolm Young songs to the man and of course we wish him and his family the best.

machine-head-now-we-die-single-cover-art-2014Machine Head recently had a new song leaked entitled “Now We Die” but before it got out of hand the band decided to release upon the world themselves, and we’re happy they did. We will debut the tune as part of a Machine Head Then & Now that will also feature a classic from their debut Burn My Eyes.

Finally our soundtrack recommendation this week goes back to the video game world. It’s only fitting that when the makers of Splatterhouse, one of the original horror themed video games, remade the game in 2010 that it included a soundtrack featuring metal heavy weights like Lamb of God, Mastodon and the Cavalera brothers.

All this and yes another three hours of old school metal served exactly the way you want it….LOUD!

 

CLIFF ‘EM ALL

On September 27, 1986 Metallica’s tour bus hit a patch of black ice while on tour in Europe and in an instance the metal world lost one if it’s greatest heroes, Metallica bassist Cliff Burton. To remember him here is the full tribute documentary Cliff ‘em All.
