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 #178

It’s Powerzone time! This week, Joe the Roadie makes a right balls up (chortle, you’ll understand when you’ve heard it), we play loads of the upcoming Bloodstock festivals bands, including some seldom played on UK radio. Oh yes, we’ve got new tunes from Accept, Kreator, Wintersun, Sinner, Blood Stain Child, Dragonforce, Paradise Lost,  Crimfall, Xandria & Wind Rose, plus a load more besides. It’s a good show and would make an excellent soundtrack for when you’re sitting outside your tent between bands at a festival, so think on. Any requests welcome over at as usual! See you soon!

Anyway, you probably want to know about the show in more depth, right? Well, 2 epic tracks and a HUGE volt track, a touching tribute and new songs from Testament, Schizoid, Rage, Korpiklaani, Masterplan, Eluveitie, Wintersun, The Privateer and Edguy as well as a load of other awesome stuff.
