"Long hair? You got beat up!", Radio Hammer's interviews of the year

What do Soundgarden, Faith No More and Mastodon all have in common? They all took time to speak to the Metal Hammer Magazine Show this year...

It's been a busy year for the Metal Hammer Magazine Show, mic in hand, we've flown far and wide (Oz, the USA, even Derby) to talk to the great and the good of the metal world. The Darkness and Disturbed told us how they both made it back to music in the last year, Nightwish explained how they bonded as a band out in the Finnish countryside and Anthrax's Scott Ian reminisced about how having long hair could get you beaten up down at CBGB's. Find out all about that and more in ten of the best Hammer Show interviews conducted this year.


Bill Kelliher of Mastodon sat down with Alexander Milas in New York City and gave the Metal Hammer Magazine Show a world exclusive about the band's top secret appearance in Game Of Thrones, that and how he fell asleep on set and what he's expecting from the next Star Wars instalment.
