Open Metalcast Episode #185: Wending Ways

This episode was going to be completely different. I’d selected a few tracks here and there, but upon hearing the latest Oak Pantheon / Amiensus split the show pretty much demanded a different course. What came together for the show surprised me and I hope it surprises you too. Never let it be said that sometimes things have a way of their own and the best we can do is get out of the way and let them take their final form.

We have a great selection of music from Oak Pantheon, NONE, Blank Faces, Kosmogyr, The Loom of Time, and Kraken to bring your ears along for the ride.

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

Open Metalcast Episode #184: Desktop Cat

Part of the fun in recording a podcast is trying to get everything done in one take without making mistakes. Sometimes that just happens, where I start to say a name of a band and then sound like I have marbles in my mouth. Other times there will be “technical difficulties” like having a cat decide that she needs to be up on the desk at the same time. But we never let these issues stand between you and the amazing Creative Commons Metal Music that awaits your ears. We have music from Hedphelym, EntröpiaH, Six is the God’s Number, COMMUNION, Gmork, Recuerda Que Puedes Morir, Insidious Process, and Skankshot. Now if you’ll excuse me there’s a cat that is not letting me get these show notes typed up. I mean, it’s only been an hour since she was last fed, and yet she’s recording vocal parts for an amazing metal album. Roaaaawr indeed.

Open Metalcast Episode #183: Temperate Zones

Here at the Open Metalcast Headquarters we’re watching the final vestiges of summer come to a close as the chill of fall settles in. The crunch of leaves under foot greet us before the icy cold of winter stretches its fingers out to embrace us. And as anyone in wintery climates can tell you it’s best to dress in layers for the cold. And what better way to layer up than with layers of Creative Commons Licensed Metal Music to warm your ears. We have an amazing show featuring Dark Devotion, Absolute Zero, Norilsk, Forge of Clouds, Wet Cactus, Opus of a Machine, The Capaces, and Kval. About the only thing that could make this show any better would be warm beverages, but until we figure out how to deliver those over the Internet we’ll have to settle with what we have.

Open Metalcast Episode #182: Thoughts Become Air

Here at the Open Metalcast Headquarters we mourn one of the great broadcasters in the Detroit-are. Chris Felcyn was a broadcaster on WRCJ FM (a classical and jazz radio station) and hosted a show called “The Well Tempered Wireless”. He was very knowledgeable about classical music and was an excellent storyteller. His shows were part listening room, part conversation, and part storytelling.

We honor Chris Felcyn by dedicating this episode to him. He likely never heard a second of this podcast (his idea of heavy metal was Verdi’s “Requiem”), but he help inspire this show. He will be missed.

This episode features music by Skyglow, Colosso, Signals From Saturn, Potmos Hetoimos, Chamber of Torture, SCALD, The Neptune Power Federation, and Neurotech.

Open Metalcast Episode #181: Fallen Back

Here at Open Metalcast Headquarters we’re nearing the end of summer and heading headlong into the most metal of seasons: Fall. Now you may say that Winter is the most metal of seasons, but I’d beg to differ with you. And because I’m doing the writing I get to say that it’s Fall and there’s very little you can do to dissuade me from this notion. What makes this season so metal? Other than leaves falling from trees, Halloween, and darkness falling ever sooner over the land I really can’t think of much else. 🙂 And we have an amazing collection of metal to lead you into fall. We have tracks from Muldjord, Petroglyphs, Colosso, Khayman, Angus Black, R.O.L.F., Maeth, and Oak Pantheon. So sit back, brew your favorite warm beverage and let the darkness fall over you.
