FRANK BELLO OF ANTHRAX JOINS US IN THE HANGAR

anthraxwmfrank2Believe it or not no member of Anthrax has joined us in the Hangar since we launched, well this weekend that changes as bassist Frank Bello steps up fresh off the Motorboat cruise with Motorhead. Anthrax have also just released their live concert film Chili on Hell. Frank has stories to tell and we have Anthrax music to crank up.

cover_cliffemallSpeaking of amazing metal bass players it was 28 years ago that the world lost Metallica bassist Cliff Burton. Cliff is widely regarded as one of the greatest metal bassists to ever live. We will revisit Cliff ‘em All for this week’s In the Vault.

MalAlso if you missed the news recently AC/DC founding member and rhythm guitarist plus songwriter Malcolm Young has dementia so bad that he is no longer playing with the band and has sat out recording their new album plus will not be joining them on tour. So we’ll dedicate a Power Set of some of the best Malcolm Young songs to the man and of course we wish him and his family the best.

machine-head-now-we-die-single-cover-art-2014Machine Head recently had a new song leaked entitled “Now We Die” but before it got out of hand the band decided to release upon the world themselves, and we’re happy they did. We will debut the tune as part of a Machine Head Then & Now that will also feature a classic from their debut Burn My Eyes.

Finally our soundtrack recommendation this week goes back to the video game world. It’s only fitting that when the makers of Splatterhouse, one of the original horror themed video games, remade the game in 2010 that it included a soundtrack featuring metal heavy weights like Lamb of God, Mastodon and the Cavalera brothers.

All this and yes another three hours of old school metal served exactly the way you want it….LOUD!

SLASH IS HERE

slashYes the immortal, top hat wearing guitar god Slash is joining us in the Hangar to discuss his new album with Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators World on Fire. Of course we’ll talk some old school Guns N’ Roses as well plus play some live tracks featuring his current band playing the old Guns stuff.

Then do you know how Black Sabbath got their name? It was this movie Black Sabbath from Boris Karloff that put the thought in Tony Iommi’s head as we go In The Vault with the trailer from this horror classic.

MI0001614682In 2000 a new tour concept that put heavy metal bands with tattoo artists came to fruition. On paper this tour looked incredible featuring Slayer, Slipknot, Hatebreed, Sevendust and more alongside some of the best tattoo artists in the business. Unfortunately due to health laws the artists weren’t able to tattoo the concert goers and instead had to relate to booths that showed off their work while someone else did henna. Therefore the tour never happened again but it did spawn a pretty killer live compilation called Tattoo the Earth: The First Crusade. This week’s Power Set will feature the aforementioned bands from this live album.

downloadA few months ago Prong put out their latest record Ruining Lives and now have put out a 7″ single for the song “Remove, Separate Self” Yes a 7 inch record. So in honor that will be the subject of this week’s Then & Now.

Finally our heavy metal soundtrack recommendation once again comes from Tales from the Crypt Presents: Demon Knight. With so much great metal on one soundtrack it’s hard not to spotlight this one a couple of times.

Slash and three more hours of old school metal on the one and only Hangar 19.

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.

540F1D3C-exodus-premier-salt-the-wound-track-featuring-metallicas-kirk-hammett-lyric-video-streaming-imageWe’ll stay away from Gothenburg this week for our Then & Now but we will stay on the thrash metal route. 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?

 

THE LONGEST RUNNING SEPULTURA SINGER

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.

INTERVIEW: NICK HIPA

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.
