NO CONTROL Radio Replay 3/24/17

We get back on track tonight after last week's festivities for SXSW, always great to be back in studio to bring you the metal you want to hear each week. I catch hell about actually doing my show live since it is so easy to record it and just play it for you, but your requests really do make it worth it every week.

We had a ton of new tunes from Mors Principum Est, Mastodon, Body Count, Darkest Hour, Woe, Overkill, Evocation, Junius, Novembers Doom, Mutiny Within, Demon Hunter and classics from Carcass, Slayer, Ministry, Metallica, Pantera, Anthrax, Katatonia and more!

NO CONTROL Radio Replay 3/10/17

SXSW officially began today and so did the metal shows. There is at least some type of metal every single day of the conference, but like I said before, alittle light compared to years past, but what we have in town is totally worthy of your attention. If not the local bands, there are plenty of out of town acts dotting the list for the next week.

I feature plenty of bands that are in town this week, Ringworm, Rivers of Nihil, Darkest Hour, Thou, Iron Reagan, Power Trip, Mastodon, Pig Destroyer, Otep, Call of the Void and plenty of your requested tunes from Dying Fetus, Slayer, Pantera, Dio, DRI, Megadeth and more!

NO CONTROL Radio HD3 Chart and Adds: 3/6/17

Next week we hit SXSW 2017, it will be my 22nd year of this conference going as some kind of liason to the music industry. My role has changed so much over the years, from radio being a mainstay of any marketing plan to now being an after thought, or a "wouldn't it be nice if" scenario. No one has budget to market to radio, simply disseminating stuff out to us is expensive, not to mention following up on it...but in fact it is a catch 22, there are not many of us radio folk left to do this either, so programmers are harder to find and have less access to what they play. It is a different time. I fortunately am in control of NO CONTROL, so no one tells me what to play, but me, my gut and you guys...od skool...the way it should be.

ADDs: 3/6/17
Havok – Conformicide (Century Media)
Within The Ruins - Halfway Human (Entertainment One)
Demon Hunter – Outlive (Solid State)

I want to get you prepped for SXSW, but this year's metal list leaves a little bit to be desired, so next week we'll do more of a preview of what is coming up during the conference week.

We had a ton of new tunes from Woe, Fit For An Autopsy, Demon Hunter, Mors Principum Est, Ghost bath, Mutiny Within, Junius, Power Trip and plenty of requests from Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Metallica, Death, Clutch, Black Label Society, JFAC and more!
