NEW WAVE OF AMERICAN HEAVY METAL INSIDE THE HANGAR

NickhipaThis explosive era of heavy metal took the metal and even hard rock world by storm at the turn of the century. Launching the careers of mainstay bands like Killswitch Engage, All That Remains, Lamb of God, and Avenged Sevenfold among many others. On the heavier side of things San Diego’s As I Lay Dying gained an extreme amount of fans and a ton of respect. Earlier this year their lead singer Tim Lambesis was arrested and sentenced to prison for attempting to have his wife murdered causing the rest of the band to hire a new singer and change their name to Wovenwar. Nick Hipa who plays guitar in Wovenwar and did play guitar in As I Lay Dying joins us to tell us the story of what the hell happened to As I Lay Dying.

During this era we saw the rise of not one but two Pantera side projects. Damageplan featuring Vinnie Paul and Dimebag Darrell, and Superjoint Ritual featuring Phil Anselmo. With the recent announcement that Superjoint Ritual will be active again for the first time in a decade we go In the Vault with the entire band when the appeared on Fuse TV’s Uranium.

In the early part of the 21st century there were many great soundtracks as so many B-level movies came out featuring heavy music on it’s soundtrack. One of them was the movie that paired two of horrors greatest villains in a film where they battle to the death, 2003′s Freddy Vs. Jason.

3 hours of New Wave of American Heavy Metal on this labor day weekend inside Hangar 19.

A PLETHORA OF METAL STARS

korn-cutterWhat happens when you get to go hang out at a four day music festival packed tight with metal bands? If you’re me you get to have some pretty amazing conversations in front of a live audience. This week in the Hangar we get some music of course and some quick talks with some metal legends, and some soon to be metal legends like Head and Fieldy from Korn, Phil Labonte from All That Remains, Tom Maxwell from HELLYEAH! and Ivan Moody from Five Finger Death Punch all from the Rock USA festival in Wisconsin.

We will then go In the Vault with Anders Fridén from In Flames from actually just a few years ago courtesy of Horns Up Rocks.

Rob-Halford-Metal-God-HoustonThis week’s Power Set will feature four songs that feature The Metal God himself Rob Halford. Rob has guested on some pretty big time records with some pretty big time bands including Krokus’ Headhunter, Ugly Kid Joe America’s Least Wanted, Five Finger Death Punch’s The Wrong Side of Heaven and the Righteous Side of Hell, and even the Buffy the Vampire Slayer Soundtrack.

hellyeah-bloodOur Then & Now will have to feature the, no longer a supergroup but a real band, HELLYEAH! The band that features former Pantera drummer Vinnie Paul plus Mudvayne vocalist Chad Grey and of course our guest former Nothingface guitarist Tom Maxwell put out their 4th album Blood for Blood recently and is probably the best of their career.

MARTY FRIEDMAN STEPS INTO THE HANGAR

martyfriedmanBetween 1990 and 2000 Marty played lead guitar for the legendary heavy metal band Megadeth. To put that into album’s terms that’s Rust in Piece through Risk, and includes some of the best metal albums of the 90′s. In 2002 Marty had already left Megadeth and moved to Japan where has done some solo work and has worked as a producer, musician for hire, and even a TV host. With the release of his amazing new solo album Inferno Marty is stepping back into the heavy metal limelight and he’s joining us inside Hangar 19 this weekend to debut a bunch of tracks from this record.

During the show Marty talks about some of his biggest influences and maybe his biggest was the double live album from Kiss called Alive! This week we will go In The Vault with Gene and Paul about the be all end all of live records.

metalmassacreFor this week’s Power Set we go back in time to 1982 and for a compilation put out by then completely unknown record label Metal Blade Records. A compilation that allowed us to hear Ratt and Metallica for the very first time. This collection of metal classics was huge on the tape trading circuit and it was just simply called Metal Massacre 1.
