New Feature!
Weekends are frequently 'play by the album'. If you have a request of what you want to hear, any day of the week even, e-mail me at signals9@gmail.com at least a day in advance. If I don't have what you want, I'm sure I can find something you like.

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

new albums added

I visited a used video games, music and movies store in my community and came across some good stuff for cheap. I purchased Dissection's Live Legacy album and Marduk's 2009 album Wormwood. So I will have those up on the playlist as soon as possible.

Agalloch/Opeth Damnation/Enslaved weekend

Sounds like an odd mix of stuff, but I got CDs of many of these in the week to add to my collection. Got an album by Agalloch called The Mantle, they are a folk metal/black metal group from my hometown of Portland, OR and The Mantle was highly praised in 2002. Also got more stuff from Enslaved which are one of my absolute favorite black metal groups. Black Metal gets a lot of bad rap from people who are outside of what the genre is all about, for many reasons I do understand. But even when it was at its most controversial in the early to mid '90s, it was still no less artistic and musicianship driven. But many of the original trendsetters of the '90s have either disappeared or changed styles altogether, it's groups like Enslaved that have evolved Black Metal into new territory never dreamed possible and many people outside of Extreme Metal's impossible to crack lack of accessibility have taken notice and began to praise. So tune in as these albums are explored this weekend.
