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…
For 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.
How 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.

The 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.
