Hard 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.
This 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”

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.
