'METAL' MIKE Scores Theme For FUSE TV's 'Talking Metal On Fuse' Show

Guitarist "Metal" Mike Chlasciak, who is known for his work with HALFORD, SEBASTIAN BACH, TESTAMENT and his own outfit PAINMUSEUM, has scored and recorded the music theme for the "Talking Metal on Fuse" show, which is set to debut Friday, November 9 at 12:30 a.m. ET on Fuse.

"Talking Metal on Fuse", a one-hour pilot that brings the number-one heavy metal/hard rock podcast on iTunes to television. Hosted by Mark Strigl and John Ostronomy — the ultimate metal geeks and hard rock aficionados — the show provides a unique perspective and insider's view into the world of metal and hard rock music.

Asked about his involvement, Mike commented, "I have been asked by John, Mark and Fuse if I was interested in delivering a kick-ass opening theme for the show.

"I have known John and Mark from their 'Talking Metal' podcast for some time and they always struck me as really great guys, full of knowledge and excitement for metal. And because of that, and because it felt like a fun exciting thing to do, I was more than happy to do just go ahead and record something ripping for them that I feel is worthy of the show.

"I do believe that there will be some very, very exciting official news about this theme song coming in just a couple of days — so stay tuned please!

"I recorded the piece right here at my own House Of Metal Studios, a private studio that I own and use for writing and recording metal. I have recorded many things here to date, including several solos for the HALFORD 'Crucible' album, some vocals and solos for PAINMUSEUM, my guest appearance for DREAM EVIL's 'Book Of Heavy Metal' record and most of the solos for Sebastian's 'Angel Down' album. The latter recorded in only 8 hours, to be exact, just enough time to drop off the FedEx to producer Roy Z and jump on the plane to Japan to play with KISS. Talk about timing.

"But, returning to the show, yeah, I do feel that 'Talking Metal on Fuse' will have a great future and I am very, very honored to be a part of it. You will additionally see me in the show as well playing riffs, adding my two cents and creating havoc. Did I mention the pretty girls that were our in-studio guests?

"It was a good night of metal. Those guys have my full support!"
