IN MEMORY OF DIMEBAG DARRELL

Today (Dec. 8th) is the anniversary of former Pantera guitarist Dimebag Darrell’s tragic death. It was ten years ago that Nathan Gale walked into the back of the Alrosa Nightclub in Columbus, OH, went on stage where the band Damageplan had just started their set, took out a gun and shot the legendary metal guitarist and longtime road-crew member Mayhem to death. This weekend in the Hangar we will celebrate his life and crank up Pantera as loud as it will go. For now enjoy some old school interviews and appearances from Dimebag.

METAL BABY PLAYS DRUMS TO PANTERA

A couple of weeks ago there was a video that took over the world heavy metal on youtube. The video is of a 8 month old baby named Wyatt drumming along to Pantera’s classic “5 Minutes Alone” In case you didn’t see it check it out.

Well Wyatt took the big stage on Jimmy Kimmel Live! to prove that it could be done live.

COOKING WITH PHIL ANSELMO #4

Yes the parody cooking animated series Cooking with Phil Anselmo is back for it’s fourth installment and this time Phil Anselmo actually lends his real voice to the episode. It also features guest appearances (voice parodies) from Chuck Billy of Testament, Ozzy, Chris Cornell of Soundgarden, Evan Seinfield of Biohazard/Anika 7, Lips from Anvil and guitarist Buckethead.

To me the best part is how they actually incorporate classic songs from these artists into recipes. Credit goes to Joey Siler who birthed this show out of his brain and does all the animation. Also to the Pantera tribute band Good Friend and A Bottle Booze for doing the music.

 

WE ARE GOING FULL COVERAGE IN THE HANGAR

When a band covers a song it can be the ultimate tribute to their heroes and to their peers. Take Metallica’s Garage Inc. album or the latest tribute record to Dio. There are incredible versions of incredible songs on some amazing records. There are also live records with cover songs, or songs recorded in the studio and used as B sides or soundtrack songs. This weekend inside Hangar 19 it’s classic (and a couple of current) metal bands covering other rock and metal bands.

We are going to go In the Vault with Motley Crue circa 1985. Of course they had a huge song with their cover of “Smoking in the Boys Room” from the album Theater of Pain.

nativity_in_blackThis week’s Power Set is a tribute to Black Sabbath. Both Megadeth and Pantera have covered Sabbath more than once and we’ll hear some gems from both bands this week taken from Nativity in Black 1 and 2. Both records were tributes to the classic 1970’s Black Sabbath line-up.

f4bf3918f75592183f45ceea22db2f56In the last few years the female fronted band Halestorm have become world wide rock stars. In 2011 they put out a covers e.p. called ReAniMate: The Covers E.P. The disc starts off with a pretty killer cover of Skid Row’s “Slave to the Grind.” So this week’s Then & Now has both the Skid Row version and the Halestorm version.

maxresdefaultOur soundtrack recommendation is something a little different as it will be a couple of metal bands covering wrestling theme music from the album WWF: Forceable Entry. 

This plus metal covers by and from Annihilator, Sepultura, Guns N’ Roses, Anthrax, and even a female tribute band to Iron Maiden for 3 hours of metal inside Hangar 19.

KROKUS IS IN THE HANGAR

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.
