Here’s what to expect while cranking up Hangar 19 this weekend:
First our Heavy Metal soundtrack recommendation comes from the expansive Tony Hawk video game world. These classic skateboarding video games have long supported heavy metal and punk rock from the original Tony Hawk Pro Skater to the new as yet untitled game due out this year on all the next gen systems. Certain installments have even featured playable characters like members of Metallica and Iron Maiden’s mascot Eddie. Iron Maiden’s music has been featured on two different games and we’ll hear those tracks this weekend.
This week’s Power Set is a tribute to Twisted Sister. 4 songs from the Twisted Forever album. It’s the 2001 tribute album that featured classic Sister songs redone by Motorhead, Anthrax, Overkill, Vision of Disorder and more.

We will go In The Vault with Guns N’ Roses explaining the video for “Welcome to the Jungle” from MTV’s Headbanger’s Ball in 1987. The clip below is actually the best of Headbanger’s Ball and we’ll be taking clips from it for the In the Vault segment for the next few weeks inside the Hangar
Our Then & Now will feature one the most unapologetic power metal bands that have existed over the last 25 years. The band is Germany’s Blind Guardian. Their new album Beyond the Red Mirror is scheduled to be released on the 30th and the now will feature their new song “Twilight of the Gods.” While the then will be a song featuring Kia Hansen from Helloween and Gamma Ray fame called Valhalla taken off their 1989 album Follow the Blind.
