Open Metalcast Episode #178: Head in a Rocket

Here at the Open Metalcast headquarters were’coming up on the July 4th holiday. That can only mean one thing: a constant barrage of folks taking their hard-earned money and transforming it into displays of sound and color. That’s all good for them but we prefer to celebrate freedom by taking our hard-earned cash and transforming it into displays of the most amazing Creative Commons metal music the net has to offer. Gathered in this episode are the likes of Beastmaker, Goddess Of Fate, Blot, Antisoph, VOR, filferro, BLACKWYCH, and GENTEMAYOR. And unlike a fireworks display you can re-play this again and again and even share it with your friends. Its 100% better to share than mosquito repellent and unlike that potato salad that’s been out all afternoon it’s only guaranteed to give you sick riffs, not sick… well, you get the idea.

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

Open Metalcast Episode #177: Harnessing Chaos

Sometimes I like taking the whole Open Metalcast headquarters music library and put it on shuffle mode. This morning I decided to record an episode completely made up of these tracks. The only rule was that it couldn’t be something that I already played on the show (funnily enough one track didn’t make the cut because of that reason). This episode features tracks from Lords of the Trident, Thicket, Raging Steel, Mindwarp, Vanagloria, Gangrel, Colossal Figures, Digger, Mental Waste, tao te kin, and Dr. Zilog. I’m a little worried that the forces of chaos are going to put me out of a job making these playlists. Perhaps the computers really are taking over.

Open Metalcast Episode #176: Rules of Acquisition

Here at the Open Metalcast Headquarters we’re always acquiring Creative Commons metal music for the show. We carefully select the finest CC-licensed metal music and run it through a scientific process to ensure the best listening experience possible. And this show is no exception, featuring music from Cara Neir, Epiphany From The Abyss, Anvil of Doom, Altars of Grief, ctrlBrain, Force Events!, Pyrit, The Neptune Power Federation, and Fuzz Forward. And we can pretty much guarantee that a certain Redmond-based software company won’t purchase us for $7 billion any time soon so we’ll continue to bring you the best CC-licensed metal music available.

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

Open Metalcast Episode #175: Remember to Reminder

Here at the Open Metalcast headquarters we’re celebrating Memorial Day Weekend. It’s a time of remembrance for those who fought for the freedoms that we in the USA enjoy. And one of those freedoms that I enjoy is sharing Creative Commons Metal Music with you. And this show is no different, with artists like Galactic Pegasus, Fountainhead, Necro-Cannibal Machinery, Terminal Man, Nolens, Crows, AgainstYouAll, and Die Leere im Kern deiner Hoffnung to bring the freedom of CC-Licensed music to your ears. And remember to support the bands in this show so they have the freedom to bring you more amazing music.

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

Open Metalcast Episode #174: Won’t Fade Away

I’ve made it no secret that the hardest part of putting together these shows is coming up with new and interesting things to put at the top of the episode. I mean, with metal like Godless Truth, Spawn of Annihilation, Throne of Botis, Catalytic, NONE, Antimelodix, Demiurgo, and Illuminus it’s hard to come up with the right words to describe such amazing metal. It’s like these blurbs almost fade away into the background radiation of such amazing talent. But ramble on I must until I get to a point where I feel like stopping. Hey, here looks like a good spot.
