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 ...

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 ...

It's late here at the Open Metalcast headquarters and we're getting ready to release another jam-packed episode of some of the most crushing Creative Commons metal the world has ever heard. All that stands between us and heading to bed is coming up with a description of what treasures await you ...

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 ...

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 comas and kick you back into high gear. And what a collection of music to give thanks for, including brand new music from Cloudkicker (apparently not content with only releasing the brilliant Live with Intronaut album last week). This episode also features music from 100 Veces Fauna, Mursa, Nightosaur, Show Me a Dinosaur, Underthals, remastered Oak Pantheon, and the triumphant return of Drakum.

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 ...

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.

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?

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 ...

Shake off the crappy holiday music with some globe-trotting metal music.
If you're anything like us at the Open Metalcast Headquarters you've had it up to your eyeballs with the shitty covers that pass for Christmas music. Instead we present 10 of the finest Creative Commons Metal tracks from across the globe, including Argentina, Bulgaria, Denmark, France, Germany, ...

It's no secret I find writing the introductions to these episodes the hardest part of creating the episode. The music has never been a problem as evidenced by the 8 tracks featured in the show. Nope, the worst part is trying to come up with something witty and wonderful to tempt you, the reader, ...
