VH1 Classic is bringing back “National Metal Day” for its second year, as the network will deliver a daylong celebration of all things metal on Nov. 11 (aka 11-11, as in ‘Turn It Up to 11″).

The lead-in to ‘National Metal Day’ actually begins on Nov. 1 at 8PM ET/PT on the network with a series of concerts and documentaries from some of metal’s finest, as well as ‘America’s Hard 100,’ hosted by Fozzy‘s Chris Jericho. The viewer-voted countdown kicks off Nov. 1 and airs each night at 9PM, with the final 10 being revealed on Nov. 10, the night before “National Metal Day.” The entire 10-hour countdown will re-air on Nov. 11 beginning at 10AM.

‘National Metal Day’ wouldn’t be complete without ‘That Metal Show,’ and hosts Eddie Trunk, Don Jamieson, and Jim Florentine will look back at the past 11 seasons of the show with ‘That Metal Special,’ which features special guests Sebastian Bach and Ace Frehley. Look for ‘That Metal Special’ at 8PM on Nov. 11.

Rounding out the metal programming will be the premiere of the concert film, ‘Judas Priest at the US Festival 1983,’ which revisits one of the band’s most memorable shows. The film starts at 9PM, followed by an encore of Iron Maiden‘s documentary, ‘Iron Maiden: Flight 666,’ that concludes ‘National Metal Day.’ So get ready to turn it up to “11″ for VH1 Classic’s ‘National Metal Day’ programming on Nov. 11.
