Today’s MetalTalk Radio show features some unbelievable music that you most probably haven’t heard before and really should check out.

Stuka Squadron rise from the grave to deliver their brand new track, ‘Tell Me Strange Things’, while NitroVille’s ‘Spitfire’ is sure to rouse those patriotic fires on the 100th Anniversary of the Royal Air Force.

April brings a mass influx of new albums from great bands, including Cruachan, The Amorettes, Paddy And The Rats, Midnattsol and many more and you can hear tracks from these releases alongside the usual mix of classics and regular features. The show is available to listen to right here:

This week’s You Spin Me Round show on MetalTalk Radio is a Prog spectacular featuring two very special guests, Trevor Horn of Yes and It Bites and Frost* vocalist/guitarist John Mitchell.

Andy Rawll spoke to Trevor about the new Yes offering, ‘Fly From Here – Return Trip’, a limited-edition version of their 2011 album with new lead vocals performed by Trevor, who produced the original and also remixed the new version.

John Mitchell resurrected prog supergroup Kino late last year with Pete Trewavas from Marillion, John Beck and drummer Craig Blundell, and tells us all about their new studio album, ‘Radio Voltaire’.

On this week’s show you’ll also get to hear tracks from new albums ‘All One Tonight’ by Marillion, ‘From Out Of The Skies’ by BulletBoys, Ayreon’s ‘Ayreon Universe’ and FM’s ‘Atomic Generation’.

You Spin Me Round is MetalTalk’s album review show featuring tracks that are being played for the first time with expert commentary by the top Metal reviewers around. The show is presented by Deputy Editor Liz Medhurst and is available to enjoy right here.
