Am I the only one who has a hard time getting a date with Rocket Queen columnist Hannah Levin on a Saturday night? First it was, "Um, sorry, dude, I've got, um, to host Audioasis over at KEXP." How about when you get off, at 9 p.m.? "Well, yeah, I'd love to, Chris, but, um, I've gotta tend to things at Gainsbourg. Next time, though, right?" Now that Levin is producing/hosting Seek and Destroy, the new metal show from Midnight to 2 a.m. on Saturday nights (aka Sunday Mornings), it's gonna be that much harder to pin her down.

When we found out about the new gig a couple weeks ago, we asked Hannah to school us a bit, and give us a peek at what we should expect from Seek and Destroy. What followed was a list of her "Heavy 10," metal's essential records. The 10th installment will drop tomorrow, before her show. But, here's a look at what you can expect from Levin during her second shift at KEXP on Saturday nights, starting tomorrow.

-- Akimbo, Jersey Shores

-- Girlschool, Screaming Blue Murder

-- Metallica, Kill 'em All

-- Iron Maiden, Piece of Mind

-- Queens of the Stone Age, Songs for the Deaf

-- Judas Priest, Screaming for Vengence

-- Mastadon, Leviathan

-- Def Leppard, High 'n' Dry

-- Slayer, Reign in Blood
