Kerry King, Lzzy Hale + Zakk Wylde Guest on ‘That Metal Show’
You'll want to turn your TV up way past 11 this weekend for the latest episode of VH1 Classic's That Metal Show. Hosts Eddie Trunk, Don Jamieson and Jim Florentine will welcome Slayer's Kerry King and Halestorm's Lzzy Hale as the special guests, while That Metal Show favorite Zakk Wylde returns as the special guest musician for the episode.
King is on hand to offer an update on Slayer's next studio album, which is expected later this year. He'll also talk about the band's summer tour plans and exclusively spill some info about material for another record during the interview.
As for Hale, she makes her That Metal Show debut in the studio (she appeared via the "Metal Modem" last year) discussing Halestorm's Into the Wild Life album and the unique recording process of laying down the music in a converted church studio.
And finally, Black Label Society's Zakk Wylde shows off his masterful guitar skills leading into the commercial breaks while also showing off some of his new custom equipment from his Wylde Audio line. In a first, Wylde plays out the final segment of the show with an extended off-the-cuff solo.
Other highlights from the show include a "Stump the Trunk" segment featuring questions from Halestorm's Joe Hottinger, Wylde and even Eddie's own mother. The "TMS Top 5" has the hosts ranking their top Zakk Wylde songs and "Take It Or Leave It" addresses the announcement of Skid Row's new singer.
Tune in to this week's episode of That Metal Show on Saturday, April 11, at 9PM ET/PT, with a repeat at 11PM ET/PT.
