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

Upgrade in Internet

I first started Metal Forge Radio in August, and it was broadcasting on less than 1 MBps DSL, and every chance I got I went to friend's houses and connected to my radio station and as much as I can, see how it plays. So far it did ok. But downloading large files and such really put a strain on it. But recently found out we could get better internet than we had with the same company for about the same price, so we upgraded to 12 MBps. So Metal Forge Radio is much improved for both you the listener and me the proprietor, and I will do everything in my power to improve Metal Forge Radio to ensure the best quality Extreme Metal Streaming Radio experience.
