Eddie and the gang are back in business for their “lucky 13” season of the acclaimed music talk program, VH1‘s That Metal Show. Host and creator Eddie Trunk, along with Jim Florentine and Don Jamieson, are returning to New York City where the show started for the filming of the thirteenth season. The last few years, the show had been taped and produced at Sony Studios in Los Angeles, CA, with every episode being shot consecutively in a short 1-week time span. This upcoming season will be shot back in New York City at Metropolis Studios every Tuesday night for broadcast on the following Saturday. A special treat for fans, the new season will consist of 12 episodes, making it the longest season the show has ever had. The season premieres on January 18, 2014 on VH1 Classic.
“I’m thrilled that the show is coming back,” said host Eddie Trunk. “But, I’m really excited that we’re now shooting on a weekly basis, as fans will now have the opportunity to see the new episodes as soon as they are completed.” Since it’s inception in 2008, the talk show has brought fans a unique heavy music news and discussion experience. To date, the show boasts a roster of special guests including members of Aerosmith, Pantera, Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, KISS, Anthrax, Pearl Jam, Heart, Metallica, and many more. To hold fans over until the next season, full episodes and exclusive bonus clips from Season 12 are now airing on ThatMetalShow.VH1.com.
