JOE ELLIOTT FROM DEF LEPPARD IS IN THE HANGAR

Joe 03If you don’t think Def Leppard aren’t metal enough to get inside the Hangar you’d be wrong. When their first album On Through The Night came out it was on par to and considered part of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal. Their second album High ‘N’ Dry continued them down that path. It was 1983’s Pyromania that launched them into the stratosphere and shaped their sound to come on their following albums. Joe Elliott is the lead singer and we dig deep into the history of Def Leppard’s metal years this week in the Hangar.

Then for something a little more light hearted from the world of Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine we go In The Vault with Dave’s apperance on the Drew Carey Show in 1998 when he try’s out for Drew’s one night only band.

AnthraxStateOfEuphoria_ImprovedSpeaking of a Big 4 band our Power Set this week features a very underrated Anthrax album, State of Euphoria. Their 1988 follow-up to Among the Living had a lot to live up to sure but the album get’s a bad rap and we’ve got a few songs to prove it. Plus this week the album celebrates its 26th anniversary, being released September 18, 1988.

By this point you may know that Steve “Zetro” Souza is back in Exodus and that original Exodus (and current Metallica) guitarist Kirk Hammet plays on their new record. The song is called “Salt in the Wound” and we have it for an Exodus Then & Now.

Finally this week’s Heavy Metal Soundtrack Recommendation is from the 2007 comedy Balls of Fury

Hell yeah! It’s another 3 hours of old school metal inside Hangar 19, you ready?

 

20 FACTS ABOUT MEGADETH

Dave2Loudwire just posted an article called 20 Facts you Probably Didn’t know about Megadeth and it’s a pretty entertaining quick read. Here a couple gems:

After getting the boot from Metallica, Dave Mustaine began his second attempt at global domination by briefly working as a telemarketer.

Dave Mustaine got the idea for ‘Rust in Peace’ from a bumper sticker reading “May all your warheads rust in peace.”

The title track from ‘Countdown to Extinction’ was awarded the Humane Society’s Genesis Award in 1993; a yearly honor recognizing outstanding work in raising awareness of animal issues.

A late ‘90s episode of the ‘X-Files’ featured Agent Moulder telling his partner Scully to “Better hide your Megadeth albums.”

In 1998, Dave Mustaine made a cameo appearance on ‘The Drew Carey Show,’ where he failed an audition to join Carey’s band.

Dave Mustaine is a certified black belt in Tae Kwon Do and Ukidokan karate, so watch your mouth!

INTERVIEW: DAVE MUSTAINE

Dave2What can possibly say about Dave Mustaine that hasn’t already been said. By this point you know the story Dave got his start in Metallica but was fired just before the recording of Kill ém All. He then hooked up with bassist Dave Ellefson and formed a band that became almost as big as his previous one did. The legendary Megadeth frontman steps inside the Hangar once again for a conversation about Megadeth and shares some old stories, and some political ones as well on the latest Hangar 19 Podcast edition.

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.
