Metallically raised in Arizona, Jose was going to grad school to be a pharmacist when he chose rock ‘n’ roll instead! Since 2000, Mangin has ruled SiriusXM on air and as programmer of Octane, Liquid Metal & Ozzy’s Boneyard. On television, Jose hosted Headbangers Ball on MTV2, Latination TV, and AXS-TV specials. Along with Jose’s hosting duties, he’s also VP of Brand Management at Affliction Clothing based in California, working closely with artists on all Affliction music branding.
Jose stopped by our studios to spread the gospel of metal and to tell us what keeps his drive alive.
