Yes the big 4 as in Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax have been turned into an 8 bit video game
Max was of course the lead singer and guitarist for Sepultura up until the late 90’s when he left and formed the band Soulfly. Max has done many other projects as well like Nailbomb, Killer Be Killed and the band Cavalera Conspiracy a band he formed with his brother Igor who had also played in the mighty Sepultura. In fact check out the video for their latest tune ‘Babylonian Pandemonium”

Also this week in the Hangar we will go In the Vault with Nikki Sixx of Motley Crue in 2007 on the Howard Stern show talking about his divorce.
Then our Then & Now features a new super group from the minds of legendary drummer Carmine Appice (Vanilla Fudge/Cactus/Ozzy) & singer Jeff Lynn Turner (Rainbow/Deep Purple/Yngwie Malmsteen) called Rated X.
And this week’s heavy metal soundtrack recommendation comes from season 3 of the Walking Dead. A scene that has Merel cranking up some Ted Nugent and Motorhead to go have himself a good old fashioned zombie killing!
All this plus another 3 hours of old school heavy metal this and every weekend inside Hangar 19.
Believe it or not no member of Anthrax has joined us in the Hangar since we launched, well this weekend that changes as bassist Frank Bello steps up fresh off the Motorboat cruise with Motorhead. Anthrax have also just released their live concert film Chili on Hell. Frank has stories to tell and we have Anthrax music to crank up.

Speaking of amazing metal bass players it was 28 years ago that the world lost Metallica bassist Cliff Burton. Cliff is widely regarded as one of the greatest metal bassists to ever live. We will revisit Cliff ‘em All for this week’s In the Vault.

Also if you missed the news recently AC/DC founding member and rhythm guitarist plus songwriter Malcolm Young has dementia so bad that he is no longer playing with the band and has sat out recording their new album plus will not be joining them on tour. So we’ll dedicate a Power Set of some of the best Malcolm Young songs to the man and of course we wish him and his family the best.

Machine Head recently had a new song leaked entitled “Now We Die” but before it got out of hand the band decided to release upon the world themselves, and we’re happy they did. We will debut the tune as part of a Machine Head Then & Now that will also feature a classic from their debut Burn My Eyes.

Finally our soundtrack recommendation this week goes back to the video game world. It’s only fitting that when the makers of Splatterhouse, one of the original horror themed video games, remade the game in 2010 that it included a soundtrack featuring metal heavy weights like Lamb of God, Mastodon and the Cavalera brothers.
All this and yes another three hours of old school metal served exactly the way you want it….LOUD!
This post is from Metallica.com:
We’ve been extremely proud to offer virtually every show we’ve done in the past ten years as a download within days of the shows happening… sometimes even hours! Over the years we’ve been able to offer more download options adding HD audio and Apple lossless files to the mix, but we still get requests for the “old school” compact disc. To celebrate ten years of Live Metallica, we’re going to make that happen! Starting today through the end of this year, every show that we’ve played in 2014 will be released on CD! All shows with the exception of the MAP Benefit concert and Glastonbury are from the By Request tour with songs that you voted on… each night on the tour presented a different set list.
We want to keep it simple so we’ll go in order of when the shows were played starting with Bogotá, Colombia, Quito, Ecuador and Lima, Perufrom the March South American run. Next week the next three shows will be available and so on, rolling out three shows at a time on Mondays. For those of you who want it all, we’re also giving you a chance to pre-order a box set with all 27 shows included, which will ship in December. There’s that special concept of a volume discount and you’ll have a box to store all your CD’s in. CD’s will be priced at the very clever price of $19.81 a pop with the box set at $417.00 (spot the savings!) and you can place your orders at either LiveMetallica.com or in theMet Store.
And for you vinyl junkies, select shows will be released on limited edition 180-gram vinyl early next year. And once again, we here at your friendly Metallica HQ want your input as to which shows you would like to see on vinyl… YOU choose from the 27 shows we’ve played this year by voting for your favs here. We’ll take the top four that receive the most votes and press them up for you to order in early 2015. Voting will close on September 26.
Let us know what you think and look for many more releases and some cool box sets in the New Year!
Looks like us die-hard Metallica fans are about to go broke
