'Talking Metal On Fuse' To Premiere Next Week

Fuse, the national music television network, has green-lighted "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.

Premiering on Friday, November 9 at 12:30 a.m. ET, "Talking Metal on Fuse" brings Mark and John's zany antics and superfan-style perspective to viewers. They take fans on a wild ride where anything can happen, including guitar lessons with Dave Mustaine (MEGADETH), a book-signing road trip with Nikki Sixx (MÖTLEY CRÜE, SIXX A.M.), cocktails with Serj Tankian (SYSTEM OF A DOWN) and a home studio makeover-turned-impromptu jam session with members of GUNS N' ROSES. Mark and John are joined by sidekicks Bud Friendly (the metal wrestler/commentator), resident guitarist "Metal" Mike Chlasciak (member of Rob Halford's and Sebastian Bach's solo bands) and the "Talking Metal" fans, a rotating group of in-studio guests who join in on the metal conversation by offering opinions and throwing up the metal horns.

"Heavy metal has some of the most loyal and passionate fans, and has been one of the most consistent performers in music television," said Eric Sherman, president, Fuse. "Fuse is committed to showcasing a variety of music genres and we're thrilled to be able to bring Mark and John's distinctive voice, along with their number-one podcast to our network."
