Open Metalcast Episode #149: Chaotic Neutral

Welcome friends to the 149th episode of the podcast we humbly call “Open Metalcast”. In this chapter our hero discovers that the old man in the tavern was indeed a sorcerer who sent him in search of the best in Creative Commons Music. He scoured the internet and discovered eight new tracks, which he stuffed into his knapsack and dragged back into town. Feast your eyes upon such treasures by the likes of Human Ashtray, Maleek, BloodeviL, Tinnitia, Sunvoid, Lacrima, Death of a Poet, and Isyocel. It’s a 42 minute journey that only requires your headphones, your podcatcher of choice, and a place to listen to it. Chips and beverages optional.

Open Metalcast Episode #148: Dunbar’s Number

According to Wikipedia (who is never wrong) Dunbar’s Number is a suggested cognitive limit to the number of people with whom one can maintain stable social relationships. Dunbar put that number at 148, which is usually rounded to 150. Whether that’s true or not is not ours to debate here, for our purpose is to provide you with the finest Creative Commons Metal the Internet has to offer. And we have nine bands we love in this episode, including Skinlepsy, a return of Narada, Mycelia, the latest from AATHMA and Santo Rostro, Talsur, Aethyr, netra, and a dip into the archives with Goat Father. So while you may only be able to have meaningful relationships with 148ish people you can still relate to 58 minutes of the best Creative Commons-licensed metal. Just remember to write every now and again.

Open Metalcast Episode #147: Salt the Earth

It’s mid-wintertime here at Open Metalcast Headquarters. Part of the fun of winter is the snow that inevitably shows up during this time. One of the ways to counteract the snow in this climate is to put down prodigious amounts of salt on the roads. The salt is pretty corrosive and gets everywhere. So, what does this have to do with Creative Commons-licensed metal music? Consider this show an assault in the making that will scatter metal music in your ears (See what I did there?)

We have a great line-up of music from Cirrhose Atak, Technickill, Brokenhead, Vera, Thesauros, Space Unicorn On Fire, and Vihmana. We also have a sneak-preview of a massive 45 minute black metal opus from Obitus, which is available for pre-order from Hypnotic Dirge Records.

It’s a show you won’t want to take with a grain of salt. Or miss for that matter.

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

Open Metalcast Episode #146: Jump In Anytime

Ever have one of those moments when you don’t know when to jump into a conversation? Where the time to speak doesn’t happen for a while? That’s what happened with this episode. Normally I jump in after the first few tracks but it didn’t seem right. And really, where would you interrupt such a great line-up of music from Dantalion, Feral, Abriosis, Totem Skin, Anopheli, and Sedulity? I don’t know the answer to that, but I do know this show is ready and waiting for your podcatching software of choice to download. Just make sure to leave yourself plenty of time to listen all the way through. You’d really hate to interrupt this set of amazing Creative Commons Metal Music.

Please support the bands in this show! Buy a T-Shirt, buy an album, head to the shows, or just buy up everything they’ve ever made. Whatever you can do to help these bands keep making music, please do it!
