Happy Metal Fun Time (Chuck)

May 12, 2017

0 Comments

April brought more than just showers for this old metal man, the personal ups and downs have taken a toll on my psyche. In a matter of weeks I have gone from the highest highs to the lowest lows. The lows brought about the end of my Metal show on its home of the last dozen years, that’s right I got cancelled. Anyone who knows me, knows how important to me NO CONTROL Radio has been to me over the years, it was my opportunity to bring people new tunes, play local bands and feature the best in metal every single week. The last few years the station that I homed us for all those years has changed to a softer more palatable approach and Metal just didn’t fit.

Luckily at the last moment we were able to find a spot on our sister station KLBJ FM and look to rise from the ashes coming in June! I would slot this into the ‘highs’ column, as it will be a better match musically, and hopefully can make us grow even larger in the coming years! NOCONTROLRadio.com if you want to take a look, and also listen to our 24/7 stream as well…so thank you for indulging my whine, so the list this month is all the new tunes I would be playing, but don’t have a show to do it on…yet!

Happy Metal Fun Time (Chuck)

This month, I started thinking about Summer, not only due to the triple digit heat outside, but this time of year has always held a lot of great times, especially in this part of the country. Texas is all about outdoors, even in the heat of the season blasting you from above, rivers, lakes, boats and beers all bring back some incredible memories and the music I jammed during some of the great times of my life.

When I really think about what kind of metal represents the summertime I go back and start pulling some of the best stoner metal and sludge metal. Top down, Fu Manchu blasting on the stereo, ladies in bikinis and the sweet leaf wafting from every pore, that my friends is June. School’s out, kick back and enjoy some tasty grooves …

:Acid Bath – Bleed Me An Ocean:
:Weedeater – God Luck And Good Speed:
:Acid King – Electric Machine:
:Torche – In Pieces:
:Black Sabbath – Sweet Leaf:
:Sleep – The Druid:
:Clutch – Unto The Breach:
:Melvins – Queen:
:Corrosion Of Conformity – Born Again For The Last Time:

Happy Metal Fun Time – SXSW Edition (Chuck)

March 1, 2013

Springtime officially begins this month and we celebrate so many things, Spring Break, March Madness and for many SXSW blocks off a major portion of the calendar. In years past metal has taken a prominent role as one of the major genres at play, and this year is no exception. Though the official showcases may be a little light in the metal field, there is no shortage of the extreme to be found during the music portion of the conference.

March has also been declared Metal Month by some blogger, or website or label or something, so since my proclivity to the metal art leads me to hail to our month of metal by drinking a lot of bourbon and jager, while at the same time giving you a nice list of SXSW metal to peruse at your leisure. If you are in Austin for the conference and you want to join in the metal mayhem, be sure to see my Big List O’ Metal for the latest updates too, and maybe I’ll buy you a shot as we jam to Clutch.

:A Life Once Lost – Vulture:
:The Beards – You Should Consider Having Sex With A Bearded Man:
:Chelsea Grin – Lilith:
:Skeletonwitch – The Infernal Resurrection:
:Clutch – The Mob Goes Wild:
:Pallbearer – Devoid Of Redemption:
:Exhumed – The Matter Of Splatter:
:Orange Goblin – Red Tide Rising:
:Howl – Heavenless:
:Norma Jean – Bayonetwork:
:KEN Mode – Obeying The Iron Will:
:Mutilation Rites – Realms Of Dementia:
:Lacuna Coil – Heaven’s A Lie:
