Welcome to the fifth edition of 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 VIKING METAL, with great songs from: Amon Amarth, Asenblut, Grimner, Skálmöld, Týr, Moonsorrow, Månegarm, Vanir, Black Messiah, From North and Svartsot.
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, hopefully this should be the 8th May. But that doesn't mean we can't have a bit of fun in the meantime. Next week is our last Extended Play, so we're going to go with POWER METAL. (It's our bread and butter, after all).
We might do a full run of these EP show again in the future, so do you have a genre you'd like us to do a full show on? Get in touch with us on our FACEBOOK page.
