In case you missed Black Sabbath’s town hall from Tuesday night here it is.
It’s one of the most legendary stories in metal, in 1983 Metallica kick out their lead guitar player while in New York to record their debut album Kill ‘em All for being too much of a drunk. That guitarist then goes back to the west coast and immediately starts a new band called Megadeth, and the rest is history. Megadeth have gone on to become one of, and at times, the biggest metal bands in the world. With the release of their 14th studio album Super Collider Dave Mustaine joins us to re-live some history and lay down the details on the new album.
Then this hasn’t been the greatest year for keeping our metal heroes alive and one of the saddest stories is that of Deftones bassist Chi Cheng who passed away almost 5 years after a car accident that left him in a coma. This week we go In The Vault with Chi talking to MTV about Nu-Metal in 2001.
This week’s Then & Now comes from a thrash metal band that inspired modern thrash, a band that was one of the biggest bands of German thrash metal. Along with Kreator the band Sodom put that scene on the map. Sodom is back with a new album and we’ll play a new song along with a classic.
Also this week’s Heavy Metal Movie and Soundtrack Recommendation comes from a movie based on a video game. Mortal Kombat wasn’t the worst movie of it’s genre ever made but we can’t exactly say it was good either. The soundtrack on the other hand was a lesson in mid 90′s industrial and extreme metal.
All this plus music from Accept, DIO, Michael Schenker, Sepultura, Infectious Grooves and more. It’s 3 hours of classic metal this and every week inside Hangar 19.
This weekend inside Hangar 19 it’s pure unadulterated metal! 3 hours of it even. No guest, no B.S. just flat out metal, with tunes from Slayer, Testament, Riot, Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath, Overkill and more.
Our In The Vault comes from the former Guns n’ Roses guitarist Gilby Clarke. He was on MTV’s Headbanger’s Ball in 1994 talking about his solo release Pawnshop Guitars and at this point he thought (as did everybody) that G-n-R would be getting back together, of course that never happened and Gilby has been solo ever sense.
We will also have a Power Set of live DIO medleys. Two medleys of DIO classics taken from his upcoming release Finding the Sacred Heart – Live in Philly 1986. This week was the 3 year anniversary of the death the metal legend and creator of the devil horns, Ronnie James Dio. R.I.P.
Our Then & Now comes from the reunited Ugly Kid Joe who released the E.P. Stairway to Hell last summer. Their new song “Devil’s Paradise” will be the now while the classic metal anthem “Neighbor” will be the then.
All that plus a heavy metal soundtrack recommendation that features music from all genres but has metal represented well with Korn and Motley Crue, and the movie has 3 beautiful women kicking ass.
Snake Sabo along with Rachel Bolan started Skid Row in 1986, then went on to sell millions of records with former lead singer Sebastian Bach. After Bach left the band re-formed in 1999 with current singer Johnny Solinger they haven’t looked back. Now with a new E.P. out United World Rebellion they are proving they are still in fact the Skid Row that everyone loves and remembers.
Then we are going to go In the Vault with the all female New Wave of British Heavy Metal Band Girlschool
This week’s Power Set is from Exodus. The story goes that Exodus guitarist Gary Holt was supposed to join us, but with Jeff Hanneman of Slayer passing away and since Gary had been filling in for him in Slayer we thought it would be better for Gary to join us at a later date. Least we can do is pay tribute to his own band and get on four songs from Exodus.
Plus this week’s Heavy Metal Soundtrack recommendation comes from the early 90′s MTV animated TV show Beavis & Butthead.
3 hours of classic metal this and every weekend inside Hangar 19.
Ian Gillan has been doing this along time. In fact Deep Purple’s debut came out in 1969, the same year we put someone on the moon for the first time, when hippies still ruled the alternative scene and the Vietnam war was a thing. Since then Ian and the band Deep Purple have influenced millions of people worldwide from members of Metallica to this radio host. Now not only is he the lead singer but he has been for Black Sabbath, solo work with Tony Iommi and his various own bands. Enjoy the latest edition of the Hangar 19 Podcast with the legendary Ian Gillan.
