June 30, 2015 at 12:33 PM (PT)
As part of its 4th Of JULY celebration, SETON HALL Rock WSOU (89.5 FM PIRATE RADIO)/SOUTH ORANGE, NJ, will count down the Top 50 Metal/Hardcore bands as voted on by the station’s current and alumni DJs. The countdown begins at 11a (ET) on SATURDAY, JULY 4th and continues until 8p (ET).
The countdown features a diversity of the bands both old and new. Listeners can expect to hear staple metal acts such as METALLICA and PANTERA, as well as more recent bands such as MASTODON and NEW JERSEY’s DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN.
“It is interesting to see who the WSOU staff thinks are the best metal bands in the scene today,” said WSOU MD ROHIT RAVI. “Adding alumni input to the selection process added a new perspective and produced for our listeners a nice mix of music from all the decades of the metal and hard rock.”
Immediately following the aired countdown, WSOU will post on www.wsou.net the complete countdown playlist. In addition to its Top 50 Countdown, WSOU special programming for JULY 4th includes an INDEPENDENCE DAY edition of its weekly program "Veterans Now" (SATURDAYS at 7:30a ET).
