Open Metalcast Episode #164: A Little of Each

When putting together an Open Metalcast show sometimes they take on a life of their own. While I try not to make “themed” shows some sections tend to get a bit of a theme to them. Sometimes the theme is to try not to have much of a theme at all for that section and instead throw together a lot of similar yet different musical styles together. This is one such episode where each song is slightly related to the song that preceded it. But when you have a collection of artists like Khroma, Demimonde, Locus Mortis, Gateway to Hell, Deep Space Destructors, Illuminus, GERANIÜM, and Potato Hate Explosion sometimes you just have to throw caution to the wind and let the music take you where it will.

Open Metalcast Episode #163: Strictly Non-Palindromic

We got a little off-schedule from the last show but it was most certainly not because of a lack of great metal music. So much great music was released lately including brand new Hela and split between Ah Ciliz and Chiral from Hypnotic Dirge Records. This episode features tracks from Ósserp, Catalytic, Expain, Hela, Tornet, Le Mur, Ah Ciliz, and Urizen. It’s a show chock full of Creative Commons Metal Music you won’t want to miss!

Open Metalcast Episode #162: Infinite Possibilities

Every time I think about the varieties of sound that are conveyed by 16 bits at 44.1KHz it boggles my imagination. So many bits, so many possibilities. One moment it can play brutal death metal, the next a brief punk song, and then smooth sludge metal. It can encompass guitars, drums, organs, voices; you name it – it can do it with incredible fidelity.

We have a great show of amazing Creative Commons metal lined up for you. We have tracks by Deadeye Dick, VULTURYON, Colorblind, Enuma Elish, Phantom Elite, Heavy Temple, Blank Spell, and the crushing Hammond Organ of Mount Atlas.

Please support the bands in this show! Buy a T-Shirt, buy an album, head to the shows. Whatever you can do to help these bands keep making music, please do it!

Open Metalcast Episode #161: Judicious Use of Headphones

This episode is a tribute to those little bits of plastic, metal, and silicone that help keep us sane during the day. This is also dedicated to the friends of the show that help keep it going via sending albums via the Bandcamp wishlist. Between headphones, friends, and music what more could one ask?

We’ve got a great show to exercise your headphones, including tracks from Dropthehammer, Photonoid, anal botox, Odradek Room, MOTOR, Dendrites, Thunderhag, Inhaling the Plague, and Neverside. Plus it’s CC-licensed so you can exercise your friends headphones as well.

Open Metalcast Episode #160: Longer Brief Thoughts

Sometimes short and sweet is the order of the day. Sometimes there’s more to be said.

This episode is on the shorter-end of the spectrum but that doesn’t make it any less potent. Especially with bands like humanhostbody, Crowned In Flesh, Throne of Botis, Old Man Wizard, Neptuniam, Cyborg Octopus, Wombripper, and Noble Beast pushing the limits of awesome Creative Commons metal.

Perhaps we should re-brand it as concentrated or ultra-strength?
