Open Metalcast Episode #142: Thankful

We’re coming up on the Thanksgiving holiday here in the USA and I wanted to take a moment to thank you for listening to this humble podcast of Creative Commons Metal Music. It’s a privilege to bring you this episode every couple of weeks and though some episodes take a little more to put together than others, seeing folks download the episode warms my heart. We have a great episode lined up with new music from the upcoming Sonus Mortis album, as well as music from Æons Collide, Effigy, Monster Coyote, Neila, PhaZer, Shady Bliss and Seal of Beleth. It’s an episode you won’t want to miss.

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

Open Metalcast Episode #136: Low-Earth Orbit

I don’t tend to do “themed” episodes much, but decided after downloading a ton of stoner / doom / sludge metal to compile a little journey for you. Once the seatbelt sign goes off please feel free to move about the cabin. Enjoy your trip.

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

This episode features Santa Marta Golden, Anopheli, Funeral in Heaven, Codo, Ignota Palabra, The Electric Mountain, Overclock , and XÄCKSECKS. So go support the Internet of Metal and pick up these releases. And be sure to let me know if you find any more Creative Commons Metal. It’s a big internet after all.

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

Open Metalcast #97: Time immemorial

Time was in the early days of the Internet there weren’t many options for finding new music. However once better bandwidth came about the Internet became a wonderful and strange place indeed. Where else could one find a Symphonic Metal Opera album about My Little Pony (that’s actually really good)? And where else could you find more a seemingly endless source of metal music from talented bands like Napalm Strike, Obsidian Throne, Wildernessking, Old Wainds, Lycanthia, Maniac Butcher, and the inimitable deafheaven? Fortunately you don’t have to go searching for all of these bands on the Internet and can add a sampling of each to your collection with just a simple click or via your podcatcher. How times have changed indeed.

Please support the bands in this show! Buy a T-Shirt, head to the shows, or set up a memorial for your favorite band. Whatever you can do to help these bands keep making music, please do it!
