A notable, now former segment of the program is the 'Corpse Classic' - 3 songs played throughout the show off a pre-1987 heavy metal vinyl. Bands featured on this segment have been: Bathory, Suicidal Tendencies, Mötley Crüe and Spinal Tap, Iron Maiden among others. The 'Corpse Classic' was replaced with the similarly themed 'Heavy Metal Troopers' in 2008 because of 'running out of vinyl'.
Heavy Metal Troopers involves playing songs by a band that has put out 6 or more albums, regardless of their activity. Artists to be featured so far include Deicide, Death and Australian figureheads Alchemist.
Other regular segments on the show are "Metal Gods" and "Living After Midnight - Priest Salute". Metal Gods (named after the song by Judas Priest and using the chorus from the song as its intro) is a trivia segment, where callers must correctly answer three questions to be crowned "Metal God". Living After Midnight, also named after Judas Priest, occurs as the name suggests around midnight each week, and simply involves a Judas Priest track played. It replaced the similarly-themed "2 Minutes to Midnight" (an Iron Maiden salute) in mid-2008.
