Home of Metal music from around the world, sub-genre, and language!
Nerd talk segment included at the 11 o'clock hour and Random Facts with me, your host and tour guide, Betti
Here is how that works:
Each Sunday I post a poll to Twitter and (now) here too.
You, the listeners, are able to pick from the sub-genres I present.
You have until Tuesday to tell me what YOU want to listen to on that weeks show!
First Wednesday of the Month of July!
I asked on Monday what YOU wanted to listen to:
Classic Metal (in general)
or a mix of both?
You wanted a mix of both Concert music (Judas Priest and Uriah Heep) and regular Classic Metal.
Since it is July 3rd, thought it would be funny to have ONLY British Metal!
On Tap Tonight:
Judas Priest (1969/West Bromwich, England/Heavy Metal)
Uriah Heep (1969/London, England/Power-Heavy Metal)
Black Sabbath (1968/Birmingham, England/Doom-Heavy Metal
Iron Maiden (1975/London, England/NWOBHM)
Diamond Head (1976/Stourbridge, England/NWOBHM)
Angel Witch (1977/London, England/NWOBHM)
What the heck is that long abbreviation with the British Metal of the 70's?
The new wave of British heavy metal (commonly abbreviated as NWOBHM) was a nationwide musical movement that started in the United Kingdom in the late 1970s and achieved international attention by the early 1980s.
Although encompassing diverse mainstream and underground styles, the music of the NWOBHM is best remembered for drawing on the heavy metal of the 1970s and infusing it with the intensity of punk rock to produce fast and aggressive songs. The DIY attitude of the new metal bands led to the spread of raw-sounding, self-produced recordings and a proliferation of independent record labels. Song lyrics were usually about escapist themes such as mythology, fantasy, horror and the rock lifestyle.
To put it in Laymen terms:
When British Punk bands (like the Sex Pistols or the Clash) were falling out of fashion Metal adopted them and made them their own children. Metal wins again.
