Hammer melts down on NME

NME Radio is teaming up with Metal Hammer to launch a weekly heavy metal show each Sunday evening.

Metal Hammer Meltdown will be hosted by Hammer’s Gill and Beez (James Gill and Terry Bezer), with the first one sponsored by Sonisphere Festival Knebworth – the forthcoming festival headlined by Metallica and Linkin Park.

Listeners will hear an exclusive interview with Sonisphere organiser Stuart Galbraith, tracks from acts on the Sonisphere bill and a chance to win VIP tickets.

Metal Hammer Meltdown aims to mix brand-new tunes from upcoming and established acts championed by Metal Hammer – with hard-hitting classics from old-time favourites, seasoned with exclusive news, big-name interviews and backstage gossip.

Chris Ingham, Publisher of Metal Hammer, said: “Metal Hammer’s partnership with NME Radio is a big noise for both the music industry and fans of real music. Gill and Beez get two hours on national radio to evangelise the diverse breadth of metal that has made Metal Hammer the UK’s fastest-growing music magazine. NME Radio champions real and exciting music, and together we can create an unmissable weekly event for die-hard metal fans and those who like their rock a little harder.”

Sammy Jacob, Managing Director of DX Media, added: “At last fans of metal will have a radio show dedicated to bringing them the best Metal Hammer has to offer and I'm delighted NME Radio is the station bringing it to them."
