Thatmetalshowlogo Episode 8 of season 14 of VH1 Classic’s centerpiece in original programming That Metal Show is the heaviest show of the season as Kerry King of Slayer returns. Kerry sits down with hosts Eddie Trunk, Don Jamieson, and Jim Florentine to discuss the upcoming Slayer album, getting the rust off for the upcoming summer tour, and even reveals some information about material for another record exclusively on the show.

The second guest on the episode welcomes Lzzy Hale of Halestorm to the set for the first time. Lzzy appeared on the show last season via the Metal Modem and talks about the new Halestorm album. They recorded the new album in a church in Nashville all playing together live, something they have never done before.

The episode features the debut of Zakk Wylde from Black Label Society as the guest musician. Zakk has been asked to perform on “That Metal Show” every season and finally in season 14, he obliged. Zakk wowed the crowd with playing abilities while showcasing his new custom audio equipment, Wylde Audio. In a first for the show, Zakk played out the final segment of the show with an extended off-the-cuff solo arrangement.

One of the episode highlights comes in the “Stump The Trunk” segment this week. The audience questions Eddie again, but this time also comes under fire with questions from Zakk himself, Joe Hottinger from Halestorm, and even Ed’s own mother gets a stump in. Take It Or Leave It returns this week with the hosts debating the recent announcement of Skid Row’s new singer and they offer up their favorite new releases in the Pick Of The Week. The TMS Top 5 looks at the Top 5 Zakk Wylde Songs and tracks like Miracle Man, No More Tears, In This River, and Stillborn all find their way in to the discussion.

Fans can watch all previous episodes, exclusive bonus clips and the new That After Show segment at ThatMetalShow.VH1.com and on the new VH1 app.

Audience tickets for upcoming tapings are now available via Gotham Casting at gothamcasting.com/gothamrsvp/.

    Looking forward to the episode! Always love it. I hope Kerry stops the madness and gets Lombardo back. I wonder if this will be addressed on the show…?

    This episode will be epic, I can feel it! In honor of Zakk’s drinking days, I will have some ice cold Becks beer ready to go. There’s a video my brother shot without my knowledge that he keeps threatening to post on YouTube of me mowing my lawn on a riding a lawnmower, beer in one hand, headphones on, listening to BLS and singing “Crazy Horse” at the top of my lungs.

    So glad you get Lzzy to come on. The girl has incredible pipes. Just a killer voice,and is one of the nicest people you’d ever hope to meet. DAYUM Ed,Taylor Momsen last week and a Lzzy this week.You guys managed to get the 2 coolest (new) women in rock on the show, and in successive weeks! At least we know that there is somebody for Ann Wilson to pass the torch to now when she decides to retire the best voice in rock….
