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!

Open Metalcast Episode #147: Salt the Earth

It’s mid-wintertime here at Open Metalcast Headquarters. Part of the fun of winter is the snow that inevitably shows up during this time. One of the ways to counteract the snow in this climate is to put down prodigious amounts of salt on the roads. The salt is pretty corrosive and gets everywhere. So, what does this have to do with Creative Commons-licensed metal music? Consider this show an assault in the making that will scatter metal music in your ears (See what I did there?)

We have a great line-up of music from Cirrhose Atak, Technickill, Brokenhead, Vera, Thesauros, Space Unicorn On Fire, and Vihmana. We also have a sneak-preview of a massive 45 minute black metal opus from Obitus, which is available for pre-order from Hypnotic Dirge Records.

It’s a show you won’t want to take with a grain of salt. Or miss for that matter.

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

Open Metalcast Episode #146: Jump In Anytime

Ever have one of those moments when you don’t know when to jump into a conversation? Where the time to speak doesn’t happen for a while? That’s what happened with this episode. Normally I jump in after the first few tracks but it didn’t seem right. And really, where would you interrupt such a great line-up of music from Dantalion, Feral, Abriosis, Totem Skin, Anopheli, and Sedulity? I don’t know the answer to that, but I do know this show is ready and waiting for your podcatching software of choice to download. Just make sure to leave yourself plenty of time to listen all the way through. You’d really hate to interrupt this set of amazing Creative Commons Metal Music.

Please support the bands in this show! Buy a T-Shirt, buy an album, head to the shows, or just buy up everything they’ve ever made. Whatever you can do to help these bands keep making music, please do it!

Open Metalcast Episode #144: Closing out 2016

It doesn’t feel like the end of 2016 is upon us. It also doesn’t feel like this should be the last regular episode of 2016. Yet, here we are.. But we’re going out with style, with brand new music from Dejadeath, Ag├│nica, and Minenwerfer. We also have tracks from Ishmael, Silent Path, Last Dive, Dehumanizing Process, and an ear-worm from Martes M├írtir. And while we bid a farewell to 2016 we’ll be back first-thing in the new year with more Creative Commons Metal Music to blast your ear-holes into the new year.

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