4/8: HALESTORM, ZAKK, KERRY KING TMS, MORE.
Another great taping of TMS last night in NYC. Lzzy Hale joined us on set for the first time, Kerry King also joined us once again, and Zakk Wylde played for the first time. The new Halestorm album is out this Tuesday and Lzzy said doing TMS was a bucket list item for her. Very honored for one of rocks top emerging newer artists! Kerry ranks 9 Slayer albums in this show and talks about their new album out in August. After the taping he treated us to a sneak listen to a few new songs and I can honestly say they sounded great. Obviously a pivotal album is the Slayer catalog being the first without Jeff and the first with Gary. It sounded exactly like Slayer should. No title for it yet. Zakk has his own line of amps now and showcased his Wylde Audio line shredding like a maniac to close the show. Hope you guys enjoy this one! It debuts this Saturday 9P ET on VH1 Classic.
