Open Metalcast Special Interview Episode: On Wings of Wax

Recently we got the opportunity to speak with Adam Kluga, the sole member of the band “On Wings of Wax”. Adam (who hails from Melbourne, Australia)  produced and recorded the album “The Escape”, which chronicles the flight and eventual fall of the Greek Tragic Hero, Icarus. We spoke with Adam about the tern Djent, his recording set up, and why playing live music isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.

Songs in this episode (BY-NC-SA):

  • The Descent
  • Secrets
  • Where there’s Smoke

We’d like to than Adam for taking time to talk with us. Learn more about On Wings of Wax on their Bandcamp page (http://onwingsofwax.bandcamp.com) and follow them on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/onwingsofwaxmusic.

Apologies to those of you who were unable to download the OGG files. Turns out Nginx doesn’t support OGG out of the box (or at least the version I installed didn’t). Please let me know if you are still having problems getting to the OGG-versions of the episodes.

Stop SOPA / PIPA

Open Metalcast survives solely on using other folks content to create a show that you enjoy. Laws like PIPA and SOPA threaten shows like Open Metalcast because sites like Bandcamp, Jamendo, and Magnatune are vulnerable to overarching copyright protection. Without those sites, this show no longer exists.

Please consider supporting the efforts of the EFF (https://www.eff.org/action) and contact your congress-person to tell them that you vigerously oppose SOPA / PIPA.

Thank you.
