Welcome to the 150th episode of Open Metalcast, where we’ve been exploring the world of Creative Commons Metal Music for lo these many episodes.

And this episode delivers on that promise with music from Dismalfucker, Dancerobot, Mortals Path, Cuerno, Cerderben, Vukodlak, Constrictor, and netra. There’s something for everyone in this episode.

Open Metalcast Episode #149: Chaotic Neutral

Welcome friends to the 149th episode of the podcast we humbly call “Open Metalcast”. In this chapter our hero discovers that the old man in the tavern was indeed a sorcerer who sent him in search of the best in Creative Commons Music. He scoured the internet and discovered eight new tracks, which he stuffed into his knapsack and dragged back into town. Feast your eyes upon such treasures by the likes of Human Ashtray, Maleek, BloodeviL, Tinnitia, Sunvoid, Lacrima, Death of a Poet, and Isyocel. It’s a 42 minute journey that only requires your headphones, your podcatcher of choice, and a place to listen to it. Chips and beverages optional.

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

Open Metalcast Episode #148: Dunbar’s Number

According to Wikipedia (who is never wrong) Dunbar’s Number is a suggested cognitive limit to the number of people with whom one can maintain stable social relationships. Dunbar put that number at 148, which is usually rounded to 150. Whether that’s true or not is not ours to debate here, for our purpose is to provide you with the finest Creative Commons Metal the Internet has to offer. And we have nine bands we love in this episode, including Skinlepsy, a return of Narada, Mycelia, the latest from AATHMA and Santo Rostro, Talsur, Aethyr, netra, and a dip into the archives with Goat Father. So while you may only be able to have meaningful relationships with 148ish people you can still relate to 58 minutes of the best Creative Commons-licensed metal. Just remember to write every now and again.

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