Welcome to the very first edition on Powerzone Extended Play! The name is a throwback to our roots, when we started off as a power metal addendum to an already existing show, The Metalheadz. We were the Metalheadz Extended Play all those years ago, back in 2013. After 50 shows, we changed to Powerzone and unfortunately the Metalheadz went by the wayside. But we remained!
This isn't a normal Powerzone show. We've cut out a lot of chat and our features, and condensed it all into a one hour, powerful ball of METAL. Each week, we're celebrating a particular genre of metal, this week, it's FOLK METAL, with great songs from: Finntroll, Equilibrium, In Extremo, Eluveitie, Turisas, Korpiklaani, Dalriada, Trollfest, Svartsot, Verikalpa, Metsatöll, Skálmöld & Ensiferum.
Don't worry, Extended Play is just here for a few weeks until me and the Roadie can get back together to record our 300th show in the same room, to give it the celebration such a landmark show deserves. But that doesn't mean we can't have a bit of fun in the meantime. Over the coming weeks we'll be exploring THRASH METAL, BLACK METAL, POWER METAL, DEATH METAL and plenty more besides.
Do you have a genre you'd like us to do a full show on? Get in touch with us on our FACEBOOK page.
