The Week’s Friday Guest DJs: RADIANT


Honest, powerful, melodic, Hard Rock! All that is Radiant!

Radiant play the kind of music that goes straight to your ear! The five-member hard rock band from Northern Germany was founded by Herbie Langhans (Avantasia, Voodoo Circle) together with Flo Gottsleben and Markus Beck (both ex. Seventh Avenue) in 2014. Manni Spalka on drums and Carsten Stepanowicz on lead guitar complete the lineup of the band.

Radiant‘s music is complex but catchy, and throws you right back to the true hard rock sound of the 70s and 80s. The band’s trademark is the exceptional and powerful voice of Herbie Langhans, who is known for his work in productions, such as Avantasia, Voodoo Circle, Sinbreed or Beyond The Bridge. The idea behind the band is more rock, less metal, more hooks, less speed, but without losing the passion and energy. A first self-titled album in 2018 comes as a result.

Radiant‘s Herbie Langhans is this week’s Guest DJ – make sure you know his 10 most influential tracks!

Tune in at 15:00 and 21:00 CET/ 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. EST this Friday to hear the show!

  • Stig G. Nordahl

    Stig is the founder and the president of Metal Express Radio, based out of Oslo, Norway. He has been around doing Metal radio since the mid-eighties. In fact, running Metal Express Radio takes almost all of his time. Is it worth it...? "Most times, yes," Stig says. "My philosophy is to try to give all Metal releases a fair chance to get promoted in one way or another. As you can imagine, it can be an arduous task to listen through about 20 albums every week! Still, I know we have the best METAL dedicated radio on this planet, and that is a reward in and of itself. I hope one day the whole Metal community can and will make listening to Metal Express Radio part of their daily rituals! Yeah, right..."
