promo8Welcome back to Open Metalcast, bringing you the best in Creative Commons Licensed Metal Music. I am the host of the Club Metal portion of the podcast and today we have a special guest. We worked hard to set up this interview over space and time and I am delighted to be able to present to you an interview with none other than the band Patient Zero. You might not know them now but in the future. your future. this is a big deal. Let’s just say that we’re lucky to have this chance to speak with a classical artist such as himself. I apologize in advance for the transmission quality but because of the extreme time delay, causality, and the price of using The Time Phone it is the best we can do. So without further delay here is our interview with Patient Zero. Enjoy!

coverTrack Listing:

  • I Never Cared from Diabolus Ex Machina (BY-NC-SA)
  • High Tech Low Life from the forthcoming album: Cyber Psychosis
  • Eins from Curse and Regret (BY-NC-SA)

We’d like to thank Patient Zero for taking the time to talk with us on Open Metalcast. Learn more about the band and their fortcoming album Cyber Psychosis at Patient Zero.

Rushing to get this episode out the door because the night I normally have to get the episode put together will be full of me catching the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who on the big screen. No spoilers, please. But what we do have is an episode chock full of some amazing artists starting with the anticipated release of the new Cryogen album “Continuum” (which is quickly becoming a favorite here). We’ve also got music from Desvirginizagore, Aborym, Rejekts, Soundcrafters, CEMENTERIO, One Paper Left, Digger, and Vampire Squid. You might say this episode is bigger on the inside, but you won’t need to be the President of Galifrey to… OK, OK, I’ll stop now. Shownotes after the break.

Open Metalcast #84: The Wave of the Voyage

One of the items that the Voyager 1 Spacecraft sent along with it on its voyage outside of our solar system was a gold-plated. It’s probably the only gold compilation album in existence trhat features Mozart, Chuck Berry, and indigenous music from across the globe. Plus it has a wicked B-side that shows aliens how to find us should they be able to figure out the code. Luckily your computer should be able to figure out the bits that make up the latest Open Metalcast show so you won’t need to figure out some alien recording technology to make it work. And rather than indigenous music from across the globe you’ll be able to hear music from Ceremonial Castings, KROM, Kain, Machina, Taste of Hell, Longed for FUsion, Gutteral Slug, Extincion, and Electric Frankenstein. Plus you’ll be able to hear it long before any alien intelligence will be able to hear that record no matter how slow your modem is. Shownotes follow:

Open Metalcast Episode #83: Highly Cototient Prime Numbers

When looking up the number 83 on Wikipedia for the 83rd episode of Open Metalcast, I ran across some number facts. Apparently “83 is the sum of three consecutive primes (23 + 29 + 31) as well as the sum of five consecutive primes (11 + 13 + 17 + 19 + 23).” It’s also a highly cototient number. What does that mean? Hell if I know, but I do know this episode has some highly charged metal to detonate inside your ear canals. We’ve got music from Beta Decay, The Rinn, Ceremony of Darkness, Lost Lands, Obsolete Theory, new Project: Roenwolfe, The Exiled, and Uboa to help with that tinnitus problem you may be having, plus some excellent Prog Rock from elevii to close out the show. (Just think of it as math core with flutes. ;) )

Please support the bands in this show! Buy a T-Shirt, head to the shows, or use them for the soundtrack of your cat-on-Roomba action videos. Whatever you can do to help these bands keep making music, please do it!

Open Metalcast Episode #82: Caught in a loop

One of the most dangerous places for me is inside of a record store. It’s like throwing a hyperactive child into a candy store: before you know it my arms are filled with new and used CDs and I’m busy trying to figure out which will make the cut. This show is no different: I thought I wasn’t going to have enough material to make the show, and suddenly I had more than enough. But my problem is your gain, as we have three upcoming tracks from various albums, starting with Cryogen’s latest album (available for pre-order), a single from Napalm Strike, and Peculate’s on-going album based on the works of Peter Kropotkin. We follow that with four great stoner / doom masterpieces from Discos Macarras’ stable of excellent artists, starting with Santo Rostro, Hera, Oyabun, and finishing with Lowshake. Closing out the show is a warning about those cute demonical creatures that may be lurking in your house at this moment by Leka. It’s a show you definitely won’t want to miss, and might get you taking a trip (virtual or otherwise) over to the record store. Just make sure you save enough money for cat food. Shownotes after the break:

Open Metalcast Episode #81: Shut up and shut down

I’m not sure what shutting the US government will prove to anyone, but I hope it doesn’t mean that the Internet will shut down any time soon. Otherwise how will I get you this phenomenal Creative Commons Music? Carrier Pigeon? Hopefully not, as there’s a lot of music in this episode, including tracks from Amaroth, Desert Icons, The Reptillians, Bisento, Endless Heights, Etherbeer, NUTRITION, and a receont convert to the Creative Commons scene: Gabezia. But rest assured I have my carrier pigeons on stand-by just-in-case. You never know when they might come in handy.

Please support the bands in this show! Buy a T-Shirt, head to the shows, or shutdown the government on their behalf. Whatever you can do to help these bands keep making music, please do it!

Open Metalcast Episode #80: Going Viral

It was my birthday last weekend, and as part of my celebration I not only got the opportunity to watch one of my friends get married, but I also got a nice little cold to go with it. So the Open Metalcast studios are a little under the weather. But the show must go on, as it were, and the best Creative Commons metal music available is the best prescription for what might ail you. We’ve got a mix of great metal from Taketh, Kudai, NUTRITION, Neverside, Civil War, Patrons of the Rotting Gate, Hellcrawler, and Black Horde to infect your ears with the best the net has to offer. And much like a cold you are encouraged to share this with as many of your friends as you can. Shownotes after the break:

Open Metalcast Episode #79: Labor Pains

In my never-ending quest to put things off until the very last minute (a habit carefully honed over the mumble mumble years of my existence) I’m putting this show together mere moments before the Tuesday that it normally releases. Of course that day is Monday, which is a holiday here in the United States, so that means I’m later than usual. But I’m glad that I did, because this episode managed to catch the brand-new release from Anima Adversa’s latest album. We also have new releases from Herlathing, as well as new releases from Antoniogarciavazquez, Sons Of Sin, Radler, Limitless, and Chewrafa. It’s an episode you won’t want to miss, especially after the post-holiday hangover you’ll be nursing at work tomorrow. Shownotes follow:

Please support the bands in this show! Buy a T-Shirt, head to the shows, or create a national holiday dedicated to their hard-working musicianship. Whatever you can do to help these bands keep making music, please do it!

Open Metalcast Episode #78: Sportball Surprise

I plead complete ignorance over all matters sportball or otherwise sports-related (save for hockey season when the Detroit Red Wings are doing well that season). So seeing an EP of sportball-related songs come across my desk isn’t that intriguing. But when it’s a CC-licensed album of tightly crafted sportball songs that also comes across the Metal Injection desk, then I take notice. I also take notice when I see new albums from some of my favorite artists like Mountain Mirrors and Agónica. And my other dirty little secret is I wanna get more Attractive Eighties Women songs because they seem to have carjacked Mojo Nixon’s tractor and gone on one hell of a joyride. Plus we have awesome tracks from Grey Heaven Fall, Dust Tria, Sunken, Nameless, and Samsara. It’s like a duffel-bag of sportball things to be sportballin’ with and… yeah, OK, I’m done. Shownotes after the break.

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