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.
He is the metal god, he is the voice of Judas Priest, he is Rob Halford. With Rob fresh off the Revolver Magazine Golden God awards, a brand new song with the modern metal band Five Finger Death Punch and Judas Priest’s new DVD/Blu-Ray Epitaph there is a lot to discuss with Rob.
From a God to a King, this week we go In The Vault with the one and only King Diamond who explains the Mercyful Fate break of 1986 on British Television.
Our Power Set this week features 3 bands that have Scott Ian in them. Besides Anthrax the legendary guitarist also spent time in the hardcore band Stormtroopers of Death and most recently in The Damned Things. Those two bands plus a song from two different eras of Anthrax make up this week’s Power Set.
Our Then & Now is from the former Life of Agony drummer Sal Abruscato who is the lead singer and guitarist for A Pale Horse Named Death. That band also features the drummer that took Sal’s spot that he vacated to join LOA. That man is Johnny Kelly from Type O Negative. Follow? Just crank their new band and don’t worry about it.
And this week’s Heavy Metal Soundtrack Recommendation comes from one of the first main stream video games to feature strippers and bad language. The game was Duke Nukem and the album is called Duke Nukem: Music to score by. It features Megadeth, COC, Slayer and many others.
It’s another 3 hours of classic metal, this time with royalty inside Hangar 19.
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.
