Brothers and Sisters! It’s time again for our semi-annual independent music special!
The following bands are the independent artists that we shared with you all in the second half of 2017, and to celebrate these artists we put together a music special with no talking (just an intro) and a play list that will hopefully turn you on to some new talent, or remind you of a band that we played last year that you perhaps forgot to check out.
The bands are played in blocks of 4 (except the last) and are preceded with a number. If’n a band trips your trigger, you’ll find the blocks and artists – in order of being played – below. Show these bands some love, won’t you?

In this episode we’ll discuss current events, well hear what band Nate’s been obsessing over lately in the ‘What’s Nate Been Listening To?’ segment, we’ll enjoy some independent music from Sound Storm and Vow of Thorns, and we’ll wrap the show discussing TeamRock’s list of the “Best Thrash Albums of ALL TIME!”
What’s Nate been listening to?

The band’s music is heavily influenced by the late 1960s when heavy metal was emerging. Allmusic praised the band’s ability to recreate a particular aspect of this era, describing the band as “celebrating the Summer Of Love’s soul-chilling autumn: a blasted landscape, post-flower power, resembling Altamont’s killing fields, reeking of the Manson Family murders, and, naturally, sounding like a mish-mash of all of the apocalyptic musical forces that converged upon that era.”
The band has been metaphorically described as “the original Alice Cooper band jamming in a cell with early Black Sabbath and the Stooges”. In order to replicate the sound of that era, the band uses vintage instruments and recording equipment.

I2. ONLINE METAL PROMO (United States), BREATH FRESHER webzine (Japan) and MARIC MEDIA (Australia) have joined forces to offer a free online digital download promotional music compilation titled “Hello Tokyo…OMP, Are You Ready To Rock?” featuring 53 songs from some of the hottest established and rising rock / metal bands from the United States and Australia.
I4. METAL UNITED WORLDWIDE DAY! Metal United World Wide (MUWW) is a project which brings together metal bands, fans, show organisers, media and other supporters for one big event. The idea is to have metal shows all over the world on the same date identified by the same banner. Everybody can be part and shows are individually organized. The aim is to create a world wide feeling of community as well as attract attention to the performing bands who are predominantly underground bands.
A community project needs community support. The project does not charge participation fees but relies on the support of the metal community. Around 20 show organisers have already agreed to put on a show on 5 May 2018 so far and there are a number of others interested. http://www.metal-united-world-wide.com
Are you a band, show organiser, media representative or other metal institution? Do you already have a show or tour on that date? Do think this is a great project and you would like to get on board? Contact email@example.com. Everybody is welcome and can join. After all, this is Metal UNITED World Wide!!! \m/
