Meet your hosts: TJ

I'm finally getting around to posting this. Sorry for the wait, everyone. Here you go...

How long I've been a host:
I've been at Metal Oxide since fall 2009 (I think, maybe winter '09). I wasn't an "official" host until January-ish, but I started hanging out with Melanie and Rita at the show a while before that.

Heh, Melanie told you hers, so I guess I should too. I'm a Classics Major at the moment, that's why I try to read Latin in song titles whenever I can, even though I'm bad at it

Favorite Genre:
Folk Metal. The amount of culture, heritage and history that folk metal bands can put into their material is amazing. The history buff in me can't get enough of Tyr singing about when a Bishop came and converted the Faeroe Islands by force, or when Turisas sings about sailing down to "Konstantinopolis". Also, it blends all the best aspects of other genres to create in my opinion, the best one.

Top 10 Bands:
1. Blind Guardian
2. Ensiferum
3. Turisas
4. Tyr
5. Korpiklaani
6. Eluveitie
7. Nevermore
8. Sonata Arctica
9. Equilibrium
10. Amon Amarth

Favorite Song:
"The Heart Collector" - Nevermore

Favorite Album:
Live - Blind Guardian

First Concert: first concert was Weird Al Yankovic, years ago. But my first metal concert was Sounds of the Underground 2007. It was intense, especially for my first concert. About 12 hours just to see Amon Amarth play 4 songs. Gwar was cool, but I didn't really care for the other bands.

Favorite Concert:
Hmmmmm.......really hard to say. My first thought (and very close second) is the Nevermore concert I saw recently at Reggie's; they just played such an amazing show and I met them, thanks to Melanie. There's also the Tyr, Alestorm and Act of Destruction show back at the Pearl Room, which was the first time I saw either of them. And there's the Tyr an Korpiklaani show, also amazing. But I think I have to go with Ensiferum, when they headlined at Logan Square was amazing because they played two sets worth of time (One of the bands opening for them couldn't make it, so they went on early and played until the regular time). And that leads me to my favorite live band...

Favorite Live Band:
ENSIFERUM!!!!! They play such a good show. They all have such a good stage presence and their songs are so great. It's hard to choose though, and even though I think there are bands hat might play better (Amon Amarth, Nevermorem, etc) but I just love Ensiferum so much, that I had to pick them.

Favorite Book:
The Godless World Trilogy, by Brian Ruckley
(Winterbirth, Bloodheir, The Fall of Thanes)

Favorite Movie:
13th Warrior

DISCLAIMER: I'm a nerd.
I play World of Warcraft. Too bad, I love it.
I also play other games like Day of Defeat, Counter Strike, Mount and Blade, Battlefield: Bad Company 2, Rome: Total War, and Starcraft.
I also rides bikes sometimes, and I'm a bit of a carpenter. But that's about it.

Favorite Sport:
Hockey (Blackhawks, of course!)

Well, that's about it. I hope you enjoyed it.
If you want to know anything else, you'll have to ask me.

Meet your hosts: Melanie

So I know I've said that I would be on here more often but the past two weeks I have left my laptop at home and getting up to write in the computer room at the station does not seem too appealing...ergo no posts. However, today I have my laptop and lots of free time for writing so I will do my "Meet your hosts" blog and hopefully my Nevermore blog as well. We'll see how I feel after this one.

Meet your host: Melanie

How long have you been on Metal Oxide?

-I have been here since August 2009. I joined the show the day that TJ #1 ended his time here so it was kind of awkward but fun. I have been at almost every single show since then (excluding vacations).

What is your major?:

-I had to put this question on, I work at a college radio station. My major is German and I am an education minor so hopefully one day I will be teaching German in high school.

Top 10 bands:

-I mentioned this one earlier tonight so I had some time to think about it. It is always hard to limit myself to just 10 and the bands tend to switch around based on what I am listening to most at the moment. Here is what I came up with today:

1. TYR
2. Cradle of Filth
3. Dimmu Borgir
4. Turisas
5. Ensiferum
6. Sonata Arctica
7. Korpiklaani
8. Alestorm
9. Mindless Self Indulgence
10. Blind Guardian
(11) Nevermore

I needed 11 spots, 10 is not enough.

What is your favorite live band?:

-Cradle of Filth puts on a great live show and I always enjoy going. I really loved seeing Korpiklaani live and of course Tyr. Blackguard is a band that I didn't really care for but they put on such a great love show that they earned my respect. Same with 3 Inches of Blood. Best local band is Act of Destruction.

First concert:

-Don't laugh. I was young and ignorant. My first concert was at the Riviera seeing the All-American Rejects. Then I saw H.I.M. a few months later and then Cradle.

Most recent concert:


Best concert:

1. Tyr, Alestorm, Suidakra, Act of Destruction

2. Korpiklaani, Tyr, Swashbuckle, White Wizzard

3. Cradle of Filth, The 69 Eyes, 3 Inches of Blood

4. Eluveitie, Alestorm/Swashbuckle

Best live moment:

-Seeing Alestorm live and realizing Swashbuckle was in the audience and had come to see them, then joined them on stage for "Nancy the Tavern Wench" and later joined Eluveitie for "Inis Mona".

Favorite song:

-"Ragnarok"- Tyr

Favorite movie:

-Lord of the Rings. If I have to choose one of the three it would be "The Two Towers". And yes I am incredibly excited for "The Hobbit" to come out!

Free time:

-I read, knit (epic sweaters), paint my nails (Blackhawks, Nevermore, Turisas...) and of course listen to music.

Favorite sport:

-Hockey (go Blackhawks)

-Rugby (Wales)

-Tennis (Rafa)

-Soccer (Deutschland und Espana)

-Baseball (Phillies)

Where were you born?:


Favorite video game:

-Doctor Mario for the NES

-Civilization Revolution for the DS (I conquer the world as various historical figures!)

-Pokemon for the Gameboy


-Three: Ball of yarn on my left foot; Book on my right foot; JRR Tolkien insignia on my right inner calf.


-Frankenstein- Mary Shelly

-War of the Worlds- H. G. Wells

-Wuthering Heights- Emily Bronte

-Harry Potter- J.K. Rowling

-Lord of the Rings- J.R.R. Tolkien

-The Historian- Elizabeth Kostova

-Oryx and Crake- Margaret Atwood

-The Giver- Lois Lowry

-The Vampire Chronicles- Anne Rice

Any other questions? Ask me.

That's all for now...

The show went very well this week.

As far as news went this week.....there wasn't a whole lot. Beside tour updates, we only mentioned that Septic Flesh has finished recording their new, as-of-yet untitled, album. One of the songs is going to be released on December 17th, and the album will hopefully follow shortly after.

New Turisas Song!

Monday was a good day. In the morning, Melanie was looking at and found an amazing article about a fan-recorded video of Turisas playing one of the songs off of their new album (title TBA). They debuted the song at a show at Pakkahuone in Tampere, Finland, on October 29. The song is called "The March of the Varangian Guard." Enjoy.

"After a 16-month break from touring, focusing fully on the work on our third album," commented Mathias "Warlord" Nygård in the Blabbermouth article, "I'm happy to tell you that we're DONE!" The album, which was produced by Nygård, will hopefully be released in early 2011. We are all very excited to hear the rest of Turisas' new material.

Turisas, along with Nachtmystium and Daniel Lioneye, will be opening for Cradle of Filth on their North American Tour this upcoming February and March.

Happy Birthday Melanie! 10/24/10

We had a special show this week. It was Melanie's Birthday!! Yes, Dethklok wished her a happy Birthday Dethday. Melanie chose the playlist for this week, and she did a great job. Of course there was a lot of folk metal, and the good old Dimmu Borgir and Cradle of Filth as well. Also, she added a song off of Septic Flesh's Communion album, "Sunlight Moonlight", which she reviewed last week. Overall, it was a great show.

News was much more interesting than usual this week. Lordi will be broadcasting a Halloween show at the Rave, which can be found at Children of Bodom is working on their new album and Turisas has unofficially announced that their new, as-of-yet untitled, album is complete (this is according to Mathias Nygard's twitter). Locuna Coil is playing their first show in India, and Moonspell is beginning an acoustic tour in Portugal, which will last until early December. Also, Shagrath has announced that Dimmu Borgir will always consist of three core members, Shagrath, Silenoz and Galder.

TJ's First Playlist Post

Welcome to the new Metal Oxide blog. Each week I will post the playlist from the show, along with a quick rundown of how the show went. I will also post a copy of it on our Myspace page. Also, if you are listening to the show live, you can follow us on our Twitter page.

This week, we chose to play a lot of iconic songs by some major bands, such as "Progenies of the Great Apocalypse" by Dimmu Borgir and "The Cage" by Sonata Arctica, because one of our friends was listening for the first time and we wanted to introduce her to all the kinds of the metal we play on the show. Also, this week's show was really heavy on Folk Metal for the same reason and because it's just awesome.

There wasn't much to talk about this week for news. Leaves' Eye's bassist regrettably had to leave the band due to personal reasons. Also, Nightwish (sans Tarja Turunen, of course) is officially in the studio working on a new album. Although it's "new Nightwish, we figured we would say this anyway.

Melanie's Album of the Week

This is my first post here on the new Metal Oxide blog and I figured that the perfect way to start it off was to tell you about my album of the week.  Most weeks I listen to a playlist of mine on random but some weeks I find myself listening to one album over and over without getting sick of it.  This week's album is "Communion" by the greek death metallers Septic Flesh.  

This is currently their latest release but they are in the studio recording a new album with a release sometime in 2011.  I actually purchased this album at a concert of theirs, however, I didn't get to see them perform for more than 15 minutes because House of Blues was being idiotic and not letting us inside till the end of Septic Flesh's set.  Although, the one song that I did manage to here completely was "Persepolis" which is off of this album.  That prompted my to go to their merch stand and buy it and to my delight, the album was even better than I thought.  

The mix of clean vocals and deep growling is perfection, and with a dark sound to their music and a mythological theme to their lyrics it quickly becomes addicting.  Some of my favorite songs off of "Communion" are: "Sunlight/Moonlight"; "Sangreal"; and "Persepolis" but when it comes to "Communion" I think every song is my favorite.  This is the only album I own in a hard copy of theirs, but I have the rest of their discography and everything that I have heard so far is fantastic.  

We don't play Septic Flesh too often here on Metal Oxide, but they are definitely a band that will be played more in the future.  Hopefully their new album will come out sooner than later and we can get that on the show!  Now I just have to figure out a way to see them live.
