In-Vehicle Satellite Radio Service Debuts 24-Hour Commercial-Free Metal Channel!

February 14, 2002 is the official launch date for Sirius Satellite Radio, a new national radio service for the car that will provide 100 channels of digital entertainment coast-to-coast, including 60 original channels of completely commercial-free music. Among the music channels is Hard Attack, which promises to deliver "the heaviest music on or off the planet," and, based on an initial look at its playlist, certainly seems intent on playing more and heavier music than most commercial rock stations, with bands like SLIPKNOT, SLAYER, PANTERA, WILL HAVEN, MACHINE HEAD, and even acts like CRADLE OF FILTH and NAPALM DEATH prominently featured. The channel also promises to go beyond the standard "radio" songs from older acts like METALLICA, JUDAS PRIEST, and BLACK SABBATH and play deep album cuts. Sirius debuts its service this week in four cities — Houston, Denver, Phoenix, and Jackson, Mississippi — with its national rollout expected to be completed by the summer.
