"That Metal Show" Season 12 is back on VH1 Classic and is jam-packed with a star-studded lineup of the "who's who" in heavy metal. "That Metal Show" hosts Eddie Trunk, Don Jamieson and Jim Florentine are the only trio on television ready to discuss, dissect and debate all things hard rock and heavy metal. Metal enthusiasts will delight in watching Eddie, Don, Jim and their guests dish on all things rock, music and mayhem.

Season 12 is back with fan-favorite segments like "Stump the Trunk" and "The Vault," but will also feature some new additions this season: "Metal Modem" features an online video chat with the biggest names in metal and hard rock from the far reaches of the globe, "Take It or Leave It" where the hosts discuss an array of current topics and share their overly biased opinions, and many other surprise segments this season. Also returning this year is the "Guest Musician" where a legendary guitarist or drummer performs as a one-man house band throughout the show. This season's guest musicians feature Ex-Ozzy Osbourne guitarist, Jake E. Lee, return guitarist Richie Kotzen, and on drums, the brothers Carmine and Vinny Appice.

The season 12 premiere welcomes to the show for the first time, Jason Newsted, former long-time bassist of Metallica. Newsted is currently the front man and bass player for his latest project, Newsted, but is also known for his work in the past with Flotsam and Jetsam, Echobrain, and Voivod, to name just a few. During this episode, Jason talks about his time in Metallica, the injuries sustained on the road, and his new music and regrets.

Season 12 will also feature the 100th episode, featuring the bassist for Pantera, Rex Brown, and his long time friend in the industry, Sebastian Bach, formerly of Skid Row. The two of them became friends on the road when Pantera and Skid Row toured together, and they retell some of their greatest stories from those days.

Season 12 guests include Jason Newsted (former Metallica bassist/Newsted), Corey Taylor & Josh Rand (Stone Sour), Rex Brown (Pantera, Kill Devil Hill) and Sebastian Bach, Jake E. Lee (former Ozzy Osbourne guitarist / Badlands) and Rick Allen (Def Leppard), Queensryche (Scott Rockenfield & Todd La Torre) and Dave Mustaine (Megadeth), Rob Zombie & John 5 and Tom Keifer (Cinderella), Scott Gorham & Ricky Warwick (Thin Lizzy/Black Star Riders) and Neil Fallon (Clutch), and Buck Dharma (Blue Oyster Cult) & Kix (Steve Whiteman & Brian Forsythe).
