VH1 Classic's centerpiece in original programming "That Metal Show"
returns this week with Richie Kotzen, Billy Sheehan, and Mike Portnoy
of The Winery Dogs. The band drops by to update hosts Eddie Trunk, Don
Jamieson, and Jim Florentine on how things have been going since the
release of their debut album, released last July. The band also
unveils a new deluxe edition of their debut that will be released in
the near future. Unfortunately, the band leaves mid-show because they
were performing that night in New York City.

TMS Alum, Vinnie Paul, returns for a third time to the show and
finishes the show alone. Vinnie fills the hosts in on the latest Hell
Yeah record, recounts tales from the road, and once again definitively
states that the rumors of the possible Pantera reunion with Zakk Wylde
on guitar are completely false. Vinnie eloquently states: "They call
it a 'reunion' for a reason, it means that all original members will
be returning. Well, with Dime no longer being here, that's not
possible. We had fourteen amazing years together, and in my humble
opinion there's no way to do that. I don't want to tarnish the legacy
of Pantera, and my brother. This just needs to be left alone, as it
is, and it's time for us to move on, man." Vinnie Paul also enlightens
the hosts in the "Put It On The Table" segment as he answers the
lightning fast Q&A portion of the show. Episode eleven of "That Metal
Show" airs this Saturday, March 29th at 11:00PM ET/PT.

Guitar legend Yngwie Malmsteen returns to TMS but this time as the
guest musician. Yngwie wowed the hosts, guests, and crowd with his
amazing fretwork and improvisational abilities. He even takes a full
guitar solo in the final segment of the show that is not-to-be-missed.

Episode eleven also features a "Metal Modem" segment with Michael
Poulson, of Volbeat, checking in from his home in Denmark. Michael
fills in the hosts about what is going on with Volbeat's upcoming
tour, what it was like to tour with Metallica, and how great it was to
be on the road with Hell Yeah and Vinnie Paul, hoping they can do it
again soon. The "TMS Top 5" tackles the Top 5 Greatest Hard Rock Trios
with all three hosts only agreeing on one band, Rush. This week's
"Stump The Trunk" finds Eddie regaining his dominance over the
audience's questions. When he gets one wrong it allows a lucky fan to
win one of Billy Sheehan's basses; autographed by the Winery Dogs,
which of course brings out everyone's favorite Miss Box Of Junk,

Since the January 18th premiere of Season 13, "That Metal Show"
continues to bring their audience the biggest names in hard rock and
heavy metal. The season 13 finale airs on April 5th at 11:00PM ET/PT
with guitar virtuoso Joe Satriani, comedians Artie Lange and Jim
Breuer, and Yngwie Malmsteen as guest guitarist, earning the
distinction as being the only repeat performer in season 13.

This season marks some monumental changes for the show as it returns
to New York City for Season 13. Previously the show was taped over
several days, in a course of a week, at Sony Studios in Los Angeles.
The new season is now shot at Metropolis Studios on Tuesday nights,
for broadcast that Saturday. Season 13 also consists of 12 new
episodes making it the longest season in the series history. Fans can
also catch the complete season 12 and brand new exclusive bonus clips
at and on the new VH1 app. New episodes of
season 13 launch on the web and in the app every Sunday morning
following the show's on-air premiere.

"That Metal Show" premiered on VH1 Classic in November 2008 and since

cable television. The show has been visited by some of the biggest
names in the genres including members of Black Sabbath, Aerosmith,

- all music should go to 11.
