In early 2013, one man had a dream to bring the best Metal in the world into one show. Backed by Calon FM, the same station where Pete Bailey got his start, Powerzone was born.

After 50 successful shows, the host, Dani, otherwise known as The Gentleman of Metal decided to freshen up the format, and now brings you… POWERZONE!

With help from talkative co-host Joe, and occasional guest host Mark, POWERZONE! strives to continue the good work and give you diverse Metal from the world over, belted out at high volume for your vulgar delectation.

The Wyrd Ways Rock Show Presents: Powerzone! Show #191

Back once again with the power metal masters, this show should have been called Happyzone this week as the Roadie was on fine form, plus we’re more than made up with our new logo designs. Got any feedback, let us know at the usual place, our Facebook page! ( In terms of new tunes, we had a few from Harpyie, Hulkoff, Kreator, Helloween and Almanac, we had all the usual features including everyones new favourite, Roadie Roulette. If you want to leave it a surprise, don’t read the playlist below! Anyway, tune in next week and don’t forget to SHARE the metal! \m/
