Listener Advisory. Extreme Metal is full of lyrical content that is not suitable for children and the faint of heart, and definitely the extremely religious. Most metalheads understand this, but this disclaimer still has to be said. The music played on Metal Forge Radio, especially death metal and black metal contains lyrics of foul language, violence, gore, Satanism, Occult themes, anti-Christian themes and sentiment. Metal Forge Radio is not for everyone. These themes are very much typical of Extreme Metal and those that listen understand this and do not take these themes to heart - this music like anything else is entertainment, ear candy with a badass sound and awesome musicianship. That's all.

I would like to mention the boundaries I do not want to cross: I avoid Extreme Heavy Metal that is all growls and empty riffs and no lyrical progression. That stuff is just silly and stupid. I avoid music that is very sexual in nature, and I also avoid music that has lyrical contents of sex and torture. I will avoid these as much as humanly possible and no amount of begging will change my decision. Also, before any group is placed on the playlist, the music is screened before broadcast.

Thank you and enjoy Metal Forge Radio

Getting ready for a new launch, but is still down for now

I never announced because I never got a response. I don't seem to get many connections to MFR from anywhere I so-called "advertise". I seem to get the majority of connections by people finding my station listed somewhere throughout the world, and that's more than enough to make me happy. Basically it's been down for several months because I have no idea how people are connecting to it and the usual URL that connects to it doesn't work, so I decided that an entire rework was necessary. I'm having a good friend of mine soon help me reset everything up and get it all solid. So once I do I will let it be known that MFR is up.

Mentioned on Facebook, MFR was down, but now back up

I forgot to post it here, but I posted it on Facebook, but MFR was down. Had to redo windows to resolve many issues. Worked out the bugs in getting MFR re-established but seems to be working now. Re-did the playlist, and have over 11,000 songs arranged in order of the albums they are on. Next month will mark 4 years it has been running, so I'm trying to come up with something to air to celebrate.

Thank you to all my listeners both close, far and all over the world. MFR is a place to celebrate that Extreme Metal is a worldwide language.

MFR had a malfunction I didn't realize was happening

After I moved, it seemed like things got too quiet. I didn't have very many connections to the station, and then I tried my RADYO app on my Windows phone (also available for Android and iPhone) and it refused to connect. Finally I did some investigation and more issues appeared, so I had my friend Marcus help me who is a computer repair technician and he found out the domain wasn't updating the IP on demand. He fixed that and set it up in my router and DONE. So it's working, and all the connection methods listed on this site all work. RADYO works.

Metal Forge Radio back up

Metal Forge Radio is back on. Took a little longer than I thought because it took awhile to unpack everything while also cleaning the previous place. But it is finally up and running.

MFR will be down Friday the 12th and Saturday the 13th

MFR will be down from Friday the 12th of December to Saturday the 13th. At very worst, it will be back up sometime on Sunday. My wife and I are moving to a new place and we have to have our TV and Internet setup in the new place.

Thank you for your listenership and your patience.

Metal Forge Radio temporarily down

MFR will temporarily be down, I completely forgot that the new modem/router has to be configured for the radiostation. It was compounded by the fact that I've been extremely busy with a move. But after the move, I'll have new internet and even better network and should be up and running by the weekend or next week of Labor Day. I will post any new changed.

For my dedicated listeners and anyone stumbling upon this diamond in the waste, I apologize for the inconvenience.
