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.

INFERNO_FRONT_FIXThen our Then & Now this week will feature more Marty Friedman, in fact throughout the show this week we will feature Megadeth/Marty Friedman Then & Now’s. The Thens will be songs that Marty co-wrote in Megadeth and the now are songs from his new album Inferno. An album which features CHILDREN OF BODOM’s Alexi Laih, REVOCATION’s Dave Davidson, Danko Jones and more.

Finally our heavy metal soundtrack recommendation comes from a soundtrack that Ministry’s Al Jourgensen oversaw that featured songs from Ministry, Rev Co, Prong among others. The Movie was 2008′s Wicked Lake.

It’s another 3 hours of metal inside Hangar 19



That should be a given inside Hangar 19, but once in awhile it’s good to have a reminder about the greatness of this genre. No guests this week just 100% pure metal!

It is a classic metal show after all so this week we go In the Vault with none other than AC/DC. This clip has the rest of the band including the late Bon Scott talking about the greatness of rhythm guitarist Malcolm Young who unfortunately has become ill and will not be writing or performing with the band on the upcoming new album and tour.

n0506zetro1In the wake of Steve “Zetro” Souza rejoining (for the third time) legendary bay area thrash metal band Exodus this week’s Power Set features three songs from the hey-day of thrash and one from Zetro’s second stint in the band.

CrowbarsymmetryinblackcdThe sludgier side of metal was born in New Orleans and the band Crowbar has helped lead us through the muck. They have just released their tenth studio album entitled Symmetry in Black. This week’s Then & Now will feature a classic and a new song written in honor of the late Type O Negative frontman Peter Steele.

Then this week’s Heavy Metal soundtrack recommendation is actually taken from a classic video game that was inspired by all the metal legends. It is said the 1993 video game Doom’s intro scene was based off King Diamond’s “The Family Ghost” and some of the music was based off Metallica’s “Phantom Lord” & “Master of Puppets” along with metal songs. In fact find all the metal songs that Doom was influenced by right here on this Doom music wiki.

This and another three hours of 100% Heavy Metal inside Hangar 19. If it’s not on your favorite hard rock radio station call, email, tweet, or whatever and let them know you need your metal fix.


2013_DIRTY_DYNAMITE_-_Band_Photo_BW500x_-_Copy_YELLOWYes the hard rock/heavy metal band from Switzerland Krokus. Krokus formed in 1975 with Marc Storace joining the band as their lead singer in 1980 for the now 4x platinum Metal Rendez-vous album and never really looked back. Other than a period in the mid 80′s where the band attempted (and failed) to go more commercial they have done it their own way. Love them or hate them almost 40 years into their astonishing career they just put out a live album Long Stick Goes Boom: Live at da House of Rust which we will hear a lot of this weekend as Marc joins us in the Hangar.

Then from the year 1992 we are going In the Vault with Black Sabbath’s Tony Iommi talking about their short lived reunion with Ronnie James Dio and the Dehumanizer album.

CD08As of late Metallica have covered some let’s say “unexpected” songs. In honor this week’s Power Set will feature four Metallica covers that are at this point classics. We’ll hear them covering Diamond Head, Queen and The Misfits.

prong-ruininglivesThis week’s Then & Now is from Prong. Tommy Victor called us and we played phone tag before he got annoyed so it’s the least we can do to play his latest with Prong. The new album is called Ruining Lives and we’ll check out the tune “Turnover.”

Plus this week’s Heavy Metal Soundtrack recommendation comes from the Nickelodeon cartoon Spongebob Square Pants. The show has featured metal heavy weights Pantera and Motorhead. Plus it’s Spongebob!

This and another 3 hours of old school metal on this Memorial Day Weekend inside Hangar 19.


This weekend inside Hangar 19 we are joined by special guest Brian “Head” Welch the guitarist from one of the creators of nu-metal sound Korn. For the last 20+ years Korn have been one of the biggest hard rock and metal bands around, but for almost a decade Head wasn’t in the band he helped form with his high school friends in 1993. The story goes that Head quit the band after kicking a long time drug habit and finding God. Now he’s back with his brothers and will be co-headling the annual touring festival with Avenged Sevenfold.

Avenged Sevenfold formed in 1999 as a “post hardcore band” (whatever that means.) It was their 3rd album City of Evil that put this band on the map and are now the biggest modern metal band in the world. Their latest album Hail the King sounds like a blast from metal’s past, and this band will be featured during this week’s Power Set.

Cannibal Corpse who helped popularize the death metal sound in the mid-nineties will be the subject of this week’s In the Vault, while Trivium’s latest will be featured during our Then & Now.

Plus with music from other bands on the tour like Mushroomhead and Texas Hippie Collation, this is the show to get you ready for the 2014 edition of the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Tour.
