Open Metalcast Episode #158: Don’t let up

Sometimes it’s easier to let go. Sometimes it’s easier just to put down the sword and stop fighting. Sometimes it’s easier to just let the hordes run right over you. Sometimes it’s easier to let them win.

It’s harder to fight. It’s harder to give them hell every step of the way. It’s harder to fight for every scrap of land you take back, every idea you hold dear, every single fucking note in every song.

This show is dedicated to the bands and labels that keep making Creative Commons Metal music. Don’t let up. Ever.

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

Open Metalcast Episode #157: Third of July

Over here in the USA we’re planning on celebrating yet another year of independence by finding anything that goes boom and setting it on fire. And much in that spirit of freedom and independence we here at the Open Metalcast Headquarters have lit the proverbial fuse on an amazing collection of music. We’ve collected tracks from Worselder, Fortune Drives to Vegas, ReRaise, The Unwritten, Dark Habits, Affres, Goatfather, and Drakum. It’s a show that is bound to impress and possibly frighten the small furry creatures in your house.

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

Open Metalcast Episode #156: Screaming into the void

There’s a saying “if you stare at the void the void stares back at you”. But what if you scream at the void? What if you play loud music (such as this fine episode here) at the void?

Hey, stop looking at me like that, you void you.

We’ve got a great episode of Creative Commons licensed metal lined up for your (and your void’s) listening pleasure. This episode includes new music from Canvas Black, Sartoraaus, Stabbed, Sarin, Celacanto, Sechem, Tornado Kid, and Mavradoxa. It’s a show that will have the void rocking while it stares back at you.

Open Metalcast Episode #154: Make Mine Metal

Here at the Open Metalcast headquarters we keep our ear to the ground of the metal world to hear the double-bass-drum rumblings within. So when we heard news that there was a release by Necrosexual we were intrigued. When we found out was also Creative Commons Licensed material we knew we had to have it on the show. When we also found that the latest release by the magnificent Eruption was also CC-licensed we could hardly contain our enthusiasm. Add to that the release of Skinlepsy’s full album, AutotheisM, Gustav Eisen, F41.0, Noituma, and oblivion and you’ll wonder how we can still stand upright after the onslaught of amazing metal.
