Returning to the show this week is Faster Pussycat’s Taime Downe and making their TMS debuts are Black Veil Brides’ Andy Biersack and Slaughter’s Mark Slaughter. The guests sit down together with hosts Eddie Trunk, Don Jamieson, and Jim Florentine in a roundtable type setting; something the show has done a couple of times this season and has found to generate great conversations. Taime discusses his time in Faster Pussycat, working on a new album, and getting Eddie drunk on the recent Monsters Of Rock cruise. Andy talks about his love for “That Metal Show”, their recent appearance opening for Ozzy at Monsters Of Rock in Brazil, and unveils the new artwork and release date of their first-ever live DVD.

Mike talks about being on tour with Adrenaline Mob, the recent passing of drummer AJ Pero, the latest benefit show for AJ’s family, and a completed album he has in the can with AJ on drums.

Taime, Andy, and Mark “Put It On The Table” and realize when asked what the first song they ever learned was they all have a serious Kiss connection and appreciation. Eddie struggles through “Stump The Trunk” this week marking the return of Ms. Box Of Junk Jen after he went three for three last week. This week’s “Take It Or Leave It” centers on the recent trend of band’s airing their grievances in public evidenced by the recent statements from Ozzy Osbourne and Bill Ward of Black Sabbath. They all agree that social media, and the ease for artists to share their sides of the story, is best for the fans.

Checking in via “Metal Modem” this week is founding Judas Priest member, KK Downing. KK fills the panel in on what he’s been doing since leaving Priest, talks about some upcoming projects, and unveils his new cologne line, “Metal for Men”. This week’s “Throwdown” pits the legendary Judas Priest releasesBritish Steel against Screaming For Vengeance. When the panel deadlocks, they reach out to KK on the modem to give the definitive answer. No one argues with one of the creators of both albums when KK makes his pick.

“That After Show” this week talks about everyone’s pre-show rituals and warm-ups as Mike Orlando joins the panel. They reminisce about the most hammered they have ever been while performing and Andy recounts the time he broke his ribs during a promo performance in Los Angeles. Fans can watch all previous episodes and other exclusive bonus clips at ThatMetalShow.VH1.com and on the new VH1 app as well as the new “That After Show” segment.

Episode 10 of season 14 of VH1 Classic’s centerpiece in original programming “That Metal Show” marks the return of Kiss original guitarist Ace Frehley and the debut of former Grand Funk Railroad singer and guitarist Mark Farner.

Hammett flew in for the sole purpose of appearing alongside his guitar idol on the show hosted by Eddie Trunk, Don Jamieson, and Jim Florentine. As Hammett states in two recent tweets this week on his twitter account, “Today I was in fanboy hero worship mode w/ @MW Schenker Thanks @ThatMetalShow!” and later adding, “Still wrapping my head around yesterday.

Johnson also tweeted about his experience on the show on how he felt watching the guitar legends play, “Not a bad way to spend a Tuesday afternoon…”

This week’s “Rank” segment finds Hammett ranking his favorite Metallica albums in order. Kirk even declares if bassist Cliff Burton had been alive for the…And Justice For All recording Cliff’s bass lines would have been heard throughout the album, a common complaint about that album.

The “Throwdown” pits the two biggest MTV-era Scorpions albums against each other, Blackout against Love At First Sting and the hosts offer up their favorite new releases in the “Pick Of The Week”. Another episode highlight comes in the “TMS Top 5” as the hosts pick the Top 5 Better Live Songs (live version that is better than the recorded version) and is the probably the most agreeable they have ever been during this segment.

That-Metal-Show-2015-1

With Season 14 of “That Metal Show” already making history  (the Season 14 premiere was the second most watched Season Premiere in the history of the series) VH1 Classic’s centerpiece in original programming returns with an all-new episode this Saturday at 9:00PM ET/PT, repeating at 11:00PM ET/PT. This week Philm drummer and “the godfather of double bass drumming” Dave Lombardo stops by the acclaimed hard rock/heavy metal talk show, hosted by Eddie Trunk, Don Jamieson, and Jim Florentine. The ex-Slayer drum maestro discusses his musical influences, how he never warms up before he performs, and that he feels better than ever now that he’s 50. The hosts ask Dave about his much publicized departure from Slayer and if he’d ever consider a possible reunion, to which Dave replies, “Let’s just say if you see me on stage with Slayer again, then all of the issues have been resolved.”

The episode also features guitar hero, John 5, making his return to the “That Metal Show” doing double duty both as an interviewed guest and as the guest musician. John 5 updates the hosts on the latest developments with his trio, John 5 & The Creatures recording with Rob Zombie and later hitting the road him, and about his long friendship with David Lee Roth and the album they recorded together that’s yet to be released.  Or,  “that’s only been heard by two people.  Dave and John.”

Dave Lombardo and John 5 both get candid when they “Put It On The Table” this week and they both even have the same answer for one of the questions. Eddie regains his dominance with “Stump The Trunk” and “Take It Or Leave It” has the guys discussing the latest trend of musicians having multiple side projects. The “TMS Top 5” discusses the hosts’ Top 5 Best Side Projects, and it’s Marilyn Manson vs. Rob Zombie for the battle of the better showman in the “Throwdown.”

Motörhead checks-in from the recording studio via the “Metal Modem”. Lemmy, Phil Campbell, and MIkkey Dee update us on the new album the band is currently recording. They also tease an upcoming US tour in August that will end with the second voyage of Motörhead’s Motörboat at the end of September.  Fans can watch all previous episodes and other exclusive bonus clips at ThatMetalShow.VH1.com and on the new VH1 app as well as the new “That After Show” segment.

THAT METAL SHOW: Anthrax’s Frank Bello, Charlie Benante and Scott Ian To Appear On This Week’s Episode

That-Metal-Show-2015-1

Following last week’s highly successful return of “That Metal Show” featuring Rush’s Geddy Lee and Dream Theater’s John Petrucci (the Season 14 premiere was the second most watched Season Premiere in the history of the series) VH1 Classic’s centerpiece in original programming returns with an all-new episode this Saturday at 9:00PM ET/PT, repeating at 11:00PM ET/PT. This week Frank Bello, Charlie Benante, and Scott Ian of Anthrax stop by the acclaimed hard rock/heavy metal talk show, hosted by Eddie Trunk, Don Jamieson, and Jim Florentine. The guys from Anthrax give us an update on their new album, their side projects, and share stories about their longtime relationship with Eddie. The hosts get the Anthrax guys to “Rank” their own albums, to “Put It On The Table” with answers to some serious questions, and engage in a passionate debate in the “Throwdown” when it’s Kiss Unmasked vs Kiss Dynasty. Anthrax singer Joey Belladonna checks-in from the recording studio in Los Angeles via the “Metal Modem.” Joey updates everyone on how the recording is going for Anthrax’s new album while taking a break from tracking his vocals.

The episode also features Testament’s ace shredder, Alex Skolnick, making his return to the “That Metal Show.” The guitar wizard discusses his latest acoustic solo album Planetary Coalition. He also fills the hosts in on the upcoming Testament/Exodus tour, and how much he’s looking forward to those shows. Alex even donates one of his ESP LTD signature guitars to the Box Of Junk for one very lucky and excited winner.

“Stump The Trunk” gets dramatic this week when Eddie melts down after he mishears a question. “TMS Top 5” discusses the Top 5 Cover Songs, and this week’s “Take It Or Leave It” has the guys discuss the increase of bands recording and releasing cover albums these days, which leads to another tirade from Eddie about the Grammys.

This week’s “That After Show” consists of everyone discussing what music was important to them growing up. It makes for an interesting discussion and offers unique insights into the music that inspired the guys in Anthrax to make music. Fans can watch “That After Show” as well as previous episodes and other exclusive bonus clips at ThatMetalShow.VH1.com and on the new VH1 app.
