This week I got a strange note from one of my friends who wondered if I was moving in. Apparently on my recent order of CDs from Hypnotic Dirge Records I accidentally left it on the last shipping address I used. That address was his address from when I last sent him some CDs for Christmas.

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 ...

We're back. 
Eight months ago Open Metalcast went on hiatus. The short of it was because my father-in-law was needing more elder care and we needed to shore up resources for his care. Unfortunately he passed away last year. This show is dedicated to him, even though he likely never heard it or knew it ...

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, ...

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 ...

Browsing through Wikipedia for subjects for titles for the show I stumbled upon something I didn't know (isn't that always the case with Wikipedia?) Apparently Moses lived to be 120 years old. So the way to wish someone long life would be “Live until 120″ Which is apropos for the 120th episode ...

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 ...

Some sad news to report with this episode. Apparently the album “Larks” is the last “Returning We Hear the Larks” album for the foreseeable future. But “Larks” is an excellent album comprising of re-recorded versions of popular songs spanning the career of Returning We Hear the Larks.

We're back from a brief hiatus to make you grateful you still have hearing, still have electricity, and still have enough bandwidth to download over 40 minutes of the best Creative Commons licensed metal music the world has to offer. We have such amazing bands as Nucleus, the latest from Gabezia ...

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 ...

One of the things that I really enjoy about putting together Open Metalcast episodes is picking up music from around the globe. There's a ton of bands putting out not only amazing music but also amazing physical musical artifacts to enjoy. One band in particular is Psygnosis with their latest ...

New Open Metalcast will drop on Tuesday. Episode 124 is pretty much in the can awaiting uploading and verbaging.

It's good to be back.

Hey all,. After some deliberation I'm putting the show on temporary hiatus. Reason being life is getting in the way of making the show you deserve to hear. We've had a good five year run and I fully intend to bring you many many more years of the best in Creative Commons Music.

Ever have one of those days where you just want to keep the music going and don't want it to stop? That's what happened with this episode. It's understandable when you have such great bands as deafheaven, Eschatos, Seal Of Beleth, Beastmaker, Fodastic Brenfers, KDC, Rebel Wizard, Envig, Azgard, ...

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 ...

Ah the joys of computers. Can't really do a show without one but damned if this computer wasn't being a bit of a pain in the ass by filling up the root partition (and of course not telling me until it completely shit the bed in the process). But with things mostly back to normal we can talk ...

This episode we decided instead of our normal format we'd try something similar to our neglected (and long overdue) Instrumetalcast episodes and just let the music play straight through. Part of this was tracks selected for this episode lent themselves better to being played with just enough ...

Here at Open Metalcast Headquarters we're well in the throes of the six more weeks of winter some fucking rodent predicted. Much like watery tarts distributing swords is no basis for a system of government, determining the length of winter based on rodent vision is… huh?
