Then we are going In The Vault with Anthrax, but not just any old Anthrax clip it’s the band in 1991/1992 on the Fox sitcom Married With Children.

Deliverance_(COC_album)With the news recently that Pepper Kennan is going to reunite with his Corrosion of Conformity band mates for a series of shows in Europe that would put the Deliverance era line-up of the band back together since that era, it’s time for a COC Power Set from their most successful album.

AcceptBlindRageThis week’s Then & Now comes from the German metal attack that is Accept. A band that found success starting in the early 80′s when they had their biggest American hit “Balls to the Wall” Their third album with current singer Mark Tornillo Blind Rage is in stores now.

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



Yes the parody cooking animated series Cooking with Phil Anselmo is back for it’s fourth installment and this time Phil Anselmo actually lends his real voice to the episode. It also features guest appearances (voice parodies) from Chuck Billy of Testament, Ozzy, Chris Cornell of Soundgarden, Evan Seinfield of Biohazard/Anika 7, Lips from Anvil and guitarist Buckethead.

To me the best part is how they actually incorporate classic songs from these artists into recipes. Credit goes to Joey Siler who birthed this show out of his brain and does all the animation. Also to the Pantera tribute band Good Friend and A Bottle Booze for doing the music.




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.



Yesterday August 11th from now moving forward will be known as the day we found out Robin Williams had passed away. The actor/comedian was 63 years old and had been suffering from severe depression.

zakkandmeAt this point we all know who Zakk Wylde is. He’s the former guitarist for Ozzy, the current leader of the Black Label Society and one of the greatest guitarists in metal or rock the world has known. He also finds himself inside the Hangar on a pretty regular basis. Here’s a quick conversation with Zakk Wylde on the Hangar 19 Podcast edition.
