Open Metalcast Episode #118: 15 Minutes or More of Fame

This week I'll be seeing Rush in concert for their 40th anniversary tour. One of the reasons Rush is one of my favorite bands is they bucked the trends. On the album 2112 they released the now legendary concept track "2112" which clocked in at over 20 minutes. This was despite their label stating they didn't want any more concept songs. Despite this the album is now regarded as a cultural treaure in Canada and the band is still going strong 40 years later. So much for listening to the conventional wisdom.

All of the tracks in this episode are over 15 minutes in length as a tribute to all of the bands that buck the trends, ignore conventional wisdom, and play the music they want to play. This episode features tracks from Cementerio, Doodsangst, NUTRITION, Schattenbrandung, Deep Space Destructors, and Psygnosis.

So poke a finger in the eye of the collectivist mentality and treat yourself over an hour and a half of the best Creative Commons music the net has to offer.

Shownotes after the break:

Please support the bands in this show! Buy a T-Shirt, buy an album, or see them in concert. What a concept! Whatever you can do to help these bands keep making music, please do it!
