What is Metalscape?
Metalscape is a metal podcast. The Greatest Metal Podcast of All Time to be precise. It is the brainchild of Zach Moore and Ronald Calero; Like-minded metalheads who, disgusted at the then current metal podcast offerings that either didn’t play anything decent or were just simply marketing ploys for nübs, decided to make their own podcast.
Each episode is roughly about 2 hours long and is chock-full of news, tour info, reviews, shit talk and of course, the best metal music on the planet.
So, how exactly did Metalscape come to be?
Well, it’s actually a pretty long story that goes back a couple of years, back when Zach and Ron actually met, but for the sake of the limited space I got here I’ll give you the short version.
Turns out Zach got himself a sweet video iPod (in black of course) which he began to load with lots of music and porn. Then he logged on to the iTunes music store and began looking for a metal podcast to suit his style. He downloaded a couple but soon realized they all sucked. He wasn’t happy with this, so he sat there in front of the computer for a while and then came up with the idea: “I’ll do my own podcast”.
So then he hit up Ron with an instant message and he was like: “Dude, let’s make a podcast!”, and Ron was like: “k”. The next day Zach recorded a pilot episode and sent it to Ron, who liked it a lot and got all excited about the idea. Soon after the first episode was recorded and put online. Then came the forums. Then came episode 2, which was a great improvement since Zach and Ron started to get more confortable and started developing the awesome shit talk the show is now famous for. Soon after the show was finally put up on the iTunes music store for all those iPod lovers to subscribe to and it’s been kicking every other podcast’s ass ever since.
