Open Metalcast Episode #167: Chewy Center

If you’re anything like me you pretty much started the holiday season already sick of holiday music. Worse, you likely have seen all of the top albums of the year lists that you care to see. Here at Open Metalcast we like to be a refuge from all of that nonsense. (2017 has been enough of a pain for all of us already). All we care about is giving you the finest in Creative Commons Metal music. And with artists like Nuclear, Rapid Dominance, The Machinery of Other Skeletons, Mavradoxa, Skyforest, Eschatos, Pūrpura, and King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard there’s plenty of music to satiate even the most carnal of metal desires.

Open Metalcast Episode #165: Analog Hole

Over the lifespan of digital music there has been a constant desire to control the copying of the data. Various watermarking and copy-protection schemes were put in place to ensure that folks wouldn’t share music. But no matter how protected the data there was always a weak link between the digital realm and the realm where you could listen to music. That was referred to as the analog hole; the moment when the digital signals become sound waves that your ears and brain perceive as music.

Luckily for us in the Creative Commons realm we can still share digital copies of our favorite music. We don’t have to worry about exploiting the analog hole; it’s just another part in the enjoyment of our music.

We’ve got a great collection of Creative Commons Licensed metal music lined up for you in this episode. We have music from Plague Mass, Imminent Attack, Mosh, Norilsk, Mindslaved, Desdinova, Machete, and Snake Thursday. It’s a show you’ll be happy didn’t stay locked in the digital realm forever.

Open Metalcast Episode #164: A Little of Each

When putting together an Open Metalcast show sometimes they take on a life of their own. While I try not to make “themed” shows some sections tend to get a bit of a theme to them. Sometimes the theme is to try not to have much of a theme at all for that section and instead throw together a lot of similar yet different musical styles together. This is one such episode where each song is slightly related to the song that preceded it. But when you have a collection of artists like Khroma, Demimonde, Locus Mortis, Gateway to Hell, Deep Space Destructors, Illuminus, GERANIÜM, and Potato Hate Explosion sometimes you just have to throw caution to the wind and let the music take you where it will.
