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...

We have tracks from Demimonde, Wasting The Genesis, Traboute, TOAD, offense, CEMENTERIO, Vatican Falling, Pain Factor, Grimoff, Dantalion, Concrete Foundation, Beastmaker, and Tyson Boogie waiting for you.

Here at The Open Metalcast Headquarters we usually make an entire episode in one night. We'll toil over Audacity tweaking and adjusting until the perfect episode is ready for you to listen to. But sometimes we won't be able to finish the episode all at once and we'll leave it on the hard drive waiting to be unleashed. This was such an instance where we'd started the episode and then forgot that we had already uncorked the metal rocket-sauce before. But lest you think that we're somehow giving...

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....

Dear Fans of Open Metalcast. I have a confession to make. It has been six long months since the last Instrumetalcast. Six months you've had to wait for arguably one of the more popular channels of Open Metalcast. I have failed you time and time again to bring you the best Creative Commons Licensed Instrumental Metal Music. No more. Your long wait is over, and as penance I have compiled almost an hour and thirty minute apology with such bands as Steamforged, Brunt, Alpha Male Tea Party, Town...

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).

Open Metalcast celebrates our milestone episode release with the release of episode 100. I had a few ideas floating around for what I could do with this episode. I thought of doing a retrospective episode highlighting artists played on the show. Perhaps it could be over several episodes? Several ideas percolated through my mind but ultimately one idea won out: just release a damn episode and say "hey, it's episode 100" in the notes for the episode. So here we are, along with new music...

Open Metalcast was released five years ago on August 17th, 2010 and we thought it would be a great idea to do something special for you our faithful listeners and aficionados of Creative Commons Metal Music. So we got thinking: what could we do to show you how much we love you, the audience, and do something special to celebrate this momentous occasion. Five hours of music? A track from all of the bands we've played on this show? Severed Fifth's Jono Bacon parachuting into each and every one of...

One thing that I didn't miss while Open Metalcast was on hiatus was writing the short blurb that precedes the listing of tracks in the show notes. Part of that is because sometimes I don't have much to add to an already great set of music. And this show is no exception, with tracks from Rain On Their Parade, Goliath, Muldjord, Broken God, Icarus Crash and Separate Sun. Plus we have one more track from the Apierogon album by Polygons. But the main reason I don't like writing these is because I...

Ever have one of those days where you just decide to put your entire library on shuffle and see what happens? That's what happened with this episode. I narrowed down the library to just the Creative Commons Metal Music, turned on shuffle and hit "play". What you're hearing is a (mostly) shuffled version of what is in the Open Metalcast archives. This episode has a mix of different artists, featuring Colosso, Aborym, Exiled From Eden, Trocotombix, Black Autumn, Pr4nA, The Foetal Mind,...

This episode was going to be completely different. I'd selected a few tracks here and there, but upon hearing the latest Oak Pantheon / Amiensus split the show pretty much demanded a different course. What came together for the show surprised me and I hope it surprises you too. Never let it be said that sometimes things have a way of their own and the best we can do is get out of the way and let them take their final form. We have a great selection of music from Oak Pantheon, NONE, Blank Faces,...

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...

Back when there were record stores, there were some places that sold compilation albums of different artists. Sometimes they were full priced, and other times they were either inexpensive or free. There's also certain magazines like Metal Hammer, Terrorizer, and PROG that also ship with compilation discs.

One of the ways that I try to get around writing one of these introductions to an episode (which is coincidentally the hardest part about putting together an episode) is to take a peek at Wikipedia to see if there's anything interesting related to the episode number.

One of the best parts of doing a podcast about Creative Commons Metal Music is I'm only answerable to you, the fans. I don't have to try to fit my show into pre-constrained time limits, and I don't have to fit the songs around commercials. And because it isn't over the air I don't have to make ham-fisted attempts at bleeping things out that might offend sensitive ears. It's just you and me sharing music the way music should be shared; among people who care about the music and the bands who make...

This week not only marked the 10th anniversary of Dimebag Darerel's death (which seems like it was only yesterday) but also the passing of one of the legends of video games: Ralph Baer. Were it not for the innovations of both Dimebag and Ralph Baer the world would never have known the amazing music of Pantera, and the video game industry as we know it might never have happened.

Not only does this show feature new metal from the comfy realm of 2018 but it also features metal that was released between 1988 - 1990. That's like a century ago! We didn't even know they had the Creative Commons license back then (or...

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,...

Putting together an episode of Open Metalcast can sometimes be a challenge in focus for me. Sometimes I get distracted by the music that I'm looking for (woe be the rabbit holes that occur when I'm looking for the perfect tracks). Other times I can get distracted when I'm waiting for something to finish downloading or for an episode to finish encoding. It can get frustrating having all of those distractions competing for my attention. But when a show comes together and I'm previewing the tracks...

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...

74 is the atomic number of Tungsten, which is Nordic for "Heavy Stone", and perfect to title this episode of Creative Commons Licensed Metal Music. There's a little something for everyone, whether you're into the sludge of Spaceking; the speed the soaring power metal of Judicator, ApócryphA, or Diary of Destruction; the folk metal hybrids of Hok-Key and Калевала, the melodic metal of Trihexyn; or the what-the-hell-was-that of Lambda Shaman. Whatever your tastes, you'll find...

Part of the fun in recording a podcast is trying to get everything done in one take without making mistakes. Sometimes that just happens, where I start to say a name of a band and then sound like I have marbles in my mouth. Other times there will be "technical difficulties" like having a cat decide that she needs to be up on the desk at the same time. But we never let these issues stand between you and the amazing Creative Commons Metal Music that awaits your ears. We have music from...

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...

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...

There's an old saying in electronics that refers to releasing the magic smoke whenever you do something to fry a piece of hardware. Well, my laziness got the best of me, and I released the magic smoke on my trusty desktop computer's motherboard when I swapped out a power supply without pulling the old modular cables. So, this episode is later than usual, but hopefully a belated music-filled episode is better than no episode, and there's a bunch of great stuff in this episode, including new...

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,...

This week I'll be seeing Rush in concert for their 40th anniversary tour. One of the reasons Rush is one of my favorite bands is they bucked the trends. On the album 2112 they released the now legendary concept track "2112" which clocked in at over 20 minutes. This was despite their label stating they didn't want any more concept songs. Despite this the album is now regarded as a cultural treaure in Canada and the band is still going strong 40 years later. So much for listening to the...

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...

After a brief hiatus we decided to make up for it by just blasting your eardrums with non-stop metal music. In that spirit we only have four words for you: "shut up and mosh". Oh, and one more sentence, but that's it. Show notes after the break. There, that should do it. (00:25) Force fed resistance by Dejadeath from ¡¡¡Viva dios!!!

If seems the Marie Kondo bug has hit the Open Metalcast studios. We took all of the tracks in the Open Metalcast Archives and saw which ones still sparked joy. Or rather, which ones could stop vibrating long enough to put into the episode. We have some great Creative Commons-Licensed Metal for you, including tracks from Grey Heaven Fall, Violblast, Kekal, Amiensus & Oak Pantheon, Black Market Serotonin, 114 Kassandra, Sound of Ground, Katu Veo, and Seajeff. These tracks are ready to vibrate...

We're starting to see a thaw at the Open Metalcast headquarters and with it is the realization that maybe we'll make it through this winter after all. Fortunately the Internet connection has stayed strong (knock on fake-wood) so we've been able to scurry through the net to find the finest in Creative Commons Metal to help keep your ears nice and toasty warm. Joining us this episode are trakcs from Trocotombix, We Are Idols, Recursion, Skein, Larion, Oblivion's Garden, Oblivion, Cara Neir,...

Tonight was the Windsor–Detroit International Freedom Festival, AKA "The Fireworks". Unfortunately we're also getting some bad weather in this area so they did the fireworks earlier than normal. What does that have to do with this show? Not a damn thing. But what this show does have is nine spectacular songs hidden inside it's encoded bits, including tracks from Ósserp, TEETHING, HOT SKULL, Black Autumn, Rain On Their Parade, Thicket, ROSY FINCH, and B.I.T.E.

It doesn't feel like the end of 2016 is upon us. It also doesn't feel like this should be the last regular episode of 2016. Yet, here we are.. But we're going out with style, with brand new music from Dejadeath, Agónica, and Minenwerfer. We also have tracks from Ishmael, Silent Path, Last Dive, Dehumanizing Process, and an ear-worm from Martes Mártir. And while we bid a farewell to 2016 we'll be back first-thing in the new year with more Creative Commons Metal Music to blast your ear-holes...

Every time I think about the varieties of sound that are conveyed by 16 bits at 44.1KHz it boggles my imagination. So many bits, so many possibilities. One moment it can play brutal death metal, the next a brief punk song, and then smooth sludge metal. It can encompass guitars, drums, organs, voices; you name it - it can do it with incredible fidelity. We have a great show of amazing Creative Commons metal lined up for you. We have tracks by Deadeye Dick, VULTURYON, Colorblind, Enuma Elish,...

Sometimes it's easier to let go. Sometimes it's easier just to put down the sword and stop fighting. Sometimes it's easier to just let the hordes run right over you. Sometimes it's easier to let them win. It's harder to fight. It's harder to give them hell every step of the way. It's harder to fight for every scrap of land you take back, every idea you hold dear, every single fucking note in every song. This show is dedicated to the bands and labels that keep making Creative Commons Metal...

It's the week after Thanksgiving here at OMC headquarters and we couldn't be happier to have yet-another-holiday in the rear-view mirror. Not that we didn't have fun with Thanksgiving, but the lead-up to getting things sorted meant this episode is dropping one week later than it should be. And if you're anything like us you're still recovering from day n+1 of leftovers. But never fear freedom-loving metalheads, because we've lined up some music to help ween you back from your turkey-induced...

In the novel 1984 there is a room called Room 101 wherein the "Ministry of Love" subjects prisoners to their worst fears, phobias and nightmares. Apparently George Orwell named it after a meeting room at the BBC where he would be subjected to tedious meetings. Episode 101 is far from tedious though, although there may still be nightmares, fears and phobias lurking within these files. If you're afraid of snails or slugs you might want to avoid Slugde's latest album Gastronomicon....

There's a saying "if you stare at the void the void stares back at you". But what if you scream at the void? What if you play loud music (such as this fine episode here) at the void? Hey, stop looking at me like that, you void you. We've got a great episode of Creative Commons licensed metal lined up for your (and your void's) listening pleasure.
