“It’s been a bit of a lay-off but I’m so thrilled to be coming back with season 14 of ‘That Metal Show’ on February 21st at our new time of 9PM ET!”, exclaims host Eddie Trunk. “We’re already lining up a great roster of new and returning guests from the world of rock and metal that I’m sure everyone will love. I want to thank all the TMS faithful for their support, it’s great to finally be back!”
If previous seasons are any indication, season 14 will be the biggest season of “That Metal Show” to date. Last season marked some monumental changes for the show as it returned to New York City. Previously the show was taped over several days in a course of a week, at Sony Studios in Los Angeles. But Season 13 was shot at Metropolis Studios on Tuesday nights, for broadcast the following Saturday, which will be the same for this new season. Fans can watch previous episodes and other exclusive bonus clips at ThatMetalShow.VH1.com and on the new VH1 app.
Last season brought some of the biggest names in hard rock and heavy metal including members of Kiss, Motley Crüe, Alter Bridge, Lamb of God, Living Colour, The Winery Dogs, Sevendust, Anthrax, and Megadeth. Season 13 also featured icons Ted Nugent and Dee Snider, and some of the best musical performances in the show’s history, featuring Lita Ford, and guitar virtuosos Yngwie Malmsteen, Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal, Joel Hoekstra, as well as drummers Charlie Benante and Richard Christie.
That Metal Show first premiered on VH1 Classic in November 2008 and since has become the only place for all things hard rock and heavy metal on cable television. The show has been visited by some of the biggest names in the genres including members of Black Sabbath, Van Halen, Metallica, Aerosmith, Pantera, Kiss, Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Pearl Jam, Guns ‘n Roses, Queensrÿche, Heart, and many more.
