31Hard to believe but the guy who has been singing for Sepultura the longest does not have the last name Cavelera. It’s Cleveland born Derek Green who joined the legendary Brazilian metal band in 1998 after Max Cavelera left the band. We focus a bit of Hangar 19 on this era of Sepultura this week as Derek Green steps up and gives us his heavy metal history.

Then we go In The Vault with the original Skid Row somewhere around 1989 as Sebastian Bach recounts being mistakenly named as an influence or songwriter on other people’s records, because well you know he’s not that other Bach.

Iron_Maiden_-_PowerslaveThis week’s Power Set celebrates the 30th anniversary of Iron Maiden’s Powerslave. Released September 3, 1984 it’s one of the big 80′s Iron Maiden albums featuring classics like the title track plus “2 Minutes to Midnight” and “Ace’s High”

In_Flames_-_Siren_Charms_(album_cover)Then for our Then & Now we go to Gothenburg, Sweden for the latest from In Flames. In Flames are one of the originators of the melodic death metal sound that originated from Sweden in the mid-nineties.  Their 11th studio album entitled Siren Charms just hit stores and although it’s a little more melodic than what people may be used to the song writing has been upped a notch. We’ll crank a new tune and old this week.

And since we are globe setting this week inside Hangar 19 we will go to Denmark for this week’s heavy metal soundtrack recommendation. The movie itself take’s place in New Jersey but the soundtrack features two songs that we’ll play from King Diamond. The movie by the way is Clerks 2.

All this plus another 3 hours of classic heavy metal inside Hangar 19.


nickhipaThe story of American hardcore-metal band As I Lay Dying took a bad twist last year when lead singer Tim Lambesis was arrested for attempting to hire a hitman to murder his wife. The rest who of course still wanted to make music decided to get a new singer and start a completely new band called Wovenwar. Guitarist Nick Hipa joins us in the Hangar to discuss this and give us the story of how As I Lay Dying became Wovenwar.


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.


There is no one in the Hangar this week telling their heavy metal story but we do have all the legend’s and their most important gift offering, their music. The kind of music we love and worship, the kind of music that can only be played one way, loud! This is metal! but…

Live_at_Luna_Park_Dream_TheaterFor this week’s Power Set we will visit the latest live offering from Dream Theater. The 5 disc (3 CD / 2 DVD) set entitled Live at Luna Park is now out and it’s incredible. Luna Park is a Soccer stadium in Argentina. Yes Dream Theater did two nights in a soccer stadium and they filmed or recorded every minute of it. After we preview a few tracks for the Power Set guitarist John Petrucci will be back in the Hangar to tell you about this set and what makes it special.

Have you ever wondered why a weird sounding metal band from Bakersfield, CA would call themselves Korn? Lead singer Jonathan Davis will relive the story on where that name came from as go In The Vault with Korn.

SlayerHow about a second Power Set? All four big 4 bands back to back. Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax as Tom Araya of Slayer told Gazette.net that there are some politics within one of the bands holding back more shows. Read the entire interview here.

sepultura-albumThe current incarnation of Brazil’s legendary extreme metal band Sepultura have just put out their 13th studio album entitled The Mediator Between Head and Hands Must Be The Heart. In honor of this Sepultura will be the subject of this week’s Then & Now.

Also don’t forget about this week’s Heavy Metal Soundtrack recommendation. Metal shows up in all forms of pop culture and was especially prominent in extreme sports. So it should be no surprise that when a soundtrack came out to accompany the 1996 X-Games it was filled with metal bands.

And finally there’s this.


9780306822186-insert 13_2For the last 30 years Al Jourgensen has been the voice and image of industrial metal as the frontman and mastermind of Ministry. With the death of his long time guitarist Mike Scaccia Al has decided to disband the legendary band once and for all. It was during the recording process of Ministry’s swan song From Beer to Eternity that Mike passed, but the final product is one of Ministry’s finest albums. Al is looking forward to the future is in the Hangar this week to tell us whatever Al wants to, because once he starts talking there’s no stopping him.

Also this weekend we will go In the Vault with one of the creators of the Swedish death metal sound, In Flames. Lead singer Anders Friden explains how he got into metal.

Kill-Devil-Hill-063-300x200Then we get a taste of something new from a drummer that’s been in metal almost since the beginning. Vinny Appice most notatably was the drummer for Black Sabbath during the DIO years and then went on to play with Dio throughout the 80′s. A few years ago he joined up with former Pantera bassist Rex Brown to form Kill Devil Hill. With Kill Devil Hill’s second record out and the band tearing up clubs around the country we will get a taste of Vinny’s work with Dio and his new band.

We also take a look at the ultimate heavy metal movie, The Decline of the Western Civilization Part 2: The Metal Years. This movie serves as a documentary of metal in the mid 80′s from Sunset Strip scene in L.A. The soundtrack reflects this with songs from Motorhead, Queensryche, Armored Saint, Faster Pussycat and more.

All this plus 3 hours of the most ear blistering classic heavy metal around, not just this week, but every week inside Hangar 19.
