Severed Fifth album update, and a plea for help

Jono from Severed Fifth mentioned this morning that the album is coming along great. The drum tracks are absolutely rocking. Unfortunately, the guys need about $2,000 to finish up the album. If you’re aware of how studios work, you can’t just park where you left off, and pick up later; they need the money soon. If you liked what you heard on the Nightmares By Design album, please consider paying for it. And if you already have donated and can spare some more, please consider sending them some more. Everything you can give helps make the re-release of the album that more of a reality.

Head to http://www.severedfifth.com/pay/ and support the band so they can give you a head crushing album of the highest caliber!

Thanks!

Program Notes: OGG Vorbis in the house

Wanted to tell everyone about the new OGG Vorbis feed. If you look on the right of the site, you’ll see the MP3 and OGG feeds. Using the power of a slightly modified plugin, I now have the power of separating the feeds into the default feed (.mp3) and .ogg for the “audio and freedom connoisseurs”.

And so you don’t have to go hunting for it, the .ogg feed is available from here:

http://feeds.feedburner.com/OpenMetalcast/ogg

And for those who are curious what the changes were to the plugin, I’ve included those as well:

sil-enclosure-mimetype-filter.php

PLEASE let me know if you run into any problems with the feeds.

Had a bout of allergies this episode (ah, the joys of Michigan winters), so the voiceovers are a little short and sweet (and hopefully coherent. :))

Also, due to popular demand, I’m posting a .ogg formatted file. I didn’t get a chance to play with any plugins, so please let me know if downloading these files are rougher than they should be.

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