Open Metalcast Episode #132: Thank you for being a fan

One thing that most bands will tell you is that they keep making music for their fans. That’s true of podcasts as well. You’re part of the reason I do this podcast. Yes you, the one with the really neat smartphone. And you, the one who listens on the website. And I see you, site that re-broadcasts our content. Seriously, it’s because of you that we all keep doing this. So give yourself a pat on the back for being awesome. Because if it weren’t for you I’d be playing this all by my lonesome. Kudos!

We have a great show lined up for you, including new music from Fall of Man, Red Raw, Kudai, Subterranean Disposition, Defying, Holistic Hobos, Mesmer, and Dr. Zilog. It’s a mixture of metal I hope you enjoy and share with your friends.

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

Open Metalcast Episode #129: Traditional / Experimental

While the Open Metalcast interns scour the net for Creative Commons Metal Music (contrary to popular belief it’s not just one person searching Bandcamp on the Monday Evening before the show drops. Nope, not that at all) we’ve noticed a lot of tags for the music we find. One tag that can be a mixed bag is “experimental”, which can lead to some truly unique music, or can lead to something that sounds akin to, well, something else. Fortunately our crack team of interns (and not one guy on a Monday Evening) have steeled him, er, themselves against such sonic barrages to bring you the finest in Creative Commons Metal Music. Plus we have some straight up metal to punish your earholes. We have tracks from Maleceptor, Back to R’lyeh, VII ARC, Goatfather, La Agonía de Vivir, The Grajo side of the latest ATAVISMO & GRAJO split, Batchlight, and Cratylik Feat BassToss. We can’t thank our interns enough for taking a few hits here and there for the team, and once we clean up the mess maybe we can have some more.

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

Open Metalcast Episode #128: Unintended acts of human kindness

This week I got a strange note from one of my friends who wondered if I was moving in. Apparently on my recent order of CDs from Hypnotic Dirge Records I accidentally left it on the last shipping address I used. That address was his address from when I last sent him some CDs for Christmas. I had a few moments of confusion until I realized what was going on. But it all worked out because these were albums that I know he’d like anyway, so in a way it was an unintended act of human kindness. So Hypnotic Dirge Records got another order from me, and my friend got some amazing music. The moral of the story? Buy more music, share more music, and support the bands you love, even if it’s unintentional. What is intentional is the collection of tracks we have for you this episode. We have tracks from Shardana, The Look of Time, Twisted Wrath, Negative Voice, Mahidevran, and a brand new track from SUNNATA. Send them to all of your friends who will listen (and the friends who won’t listen. 😉 ).

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