These special episodes are part of a continuing series featured on METALENEMA. Previous guests include Dan Lilker, Wannes Guebbels of Pentacle, and Vetis Monarch of Weapon. These shows are archived as free downloadable podcasts on www.metalenema.com
Metalenema began in 1994 on KVRX FM Radio in Austin, Texas. Hosted by The Undertaker and Agapornis Epicac, it was the only radio show broadcast from The University of Texas that received press coverage in The Daily Texan, Austin Chronicle, and The Austin American Statesman. The show was tied to numerous touring underground concerts and boasted hundreds of listeners at the height of its popularity. It resurfaced as a guest program on BCR in Bridgewater, England, in 1999, and was then revived once more for Solarfall Radio’s broacasts from late 2005 to the end of 2007.
The focus of the show is Black and Death Metal spanning the 80s, 90s, and the new millennium, as well as some good old timeworn Speed and Thrash Metal for good measure. While the music is always serious, your intrepid hosts are rarely anything but irreverent, ridiculous, and occasionally patently offensive in their quest to promote the long-lost lighter side of an art form they hold so dear.
In 2008 Solarfall became defunct, though archives of the show can be accessed at www.metalenema.com. In September 2011, Metalenema was resurrected by The Undertaker on HD radio (yes, actual broadcasting) via 101x in Austin, Texas. If you’re in Austin and have an HD receiver, it’s at 107.1 HD2, or you can hear it worldwide every Saturday night from 10pm-12AM CST at www.nocontrolradio.com. No Control is the only 24-hour metal music station on earth besides the Sirus channels. Tune in and enjoy!
