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.
