Metalscape never dies. So goes the old saying, and who are you to question the old saying?
I’m halfway settled in my new place, so I’ll share a picture of my new recording studio:
I’ve yet to hang the Metalscape lettering on a wall, and sadly I can’t really call it the Wordless Chamber 3.0 since I share this room with my roomate, but it is now a fully operational podcast recording facility.
I was having some technical difficulties with my computer that prevented me from recording, but now I fixed all of that shit (smooth sailing on Windows 8) and all I need now is a decent pair of headphones. If anyone wants to donate one, feel free to do so.
Expect a new episode soon enough, for this is the year Metalscape shall gloriously rise from darkness, leap across millions of karads of empty space, and come into being inside your headphones for your listening pleasure.
I was browsing the site today and I realized that we haven’t given you any means of contacting us directly. So in the spirit of always being closer to our fans, I’ve added the Contact Us page so you have a handy reference to our e-mails and some guidelines on what to send us.
BUY A SHIRT/DONATE
Please submit only one song.
Also, I will not be listening to any of the songs prior to the show. We will have an episode before the Request Challenge to select the 8 entries live on the program.
Thanks for entering!
Over here at Metalscape, The Greatest Metal Podcast of all Time, we like to entertain the idea of listeners actually requesting songs to be played on the show by actually playing them (from time to time). Now if we were at all serious about this program, we would not allow requests at all.
Well why the fuck not? For starters, if are, as we claim to be, the best metal podcast out there, we shouldn’t rely on our listeners to make up our playlist. Seems both lazy and un-professional. But the biggest reason against playing requests is that 90% of the time we simply do not like the music being requested. Simple as that. Yeah I know you love your favorite band and they’re awesome and everything but guess what? I hate them. And I hate you.
But now we’re giving you the opportunity to show us different.

Even though it’s been like 3 years since the last one, Gregg the drunken Irishman, still believes he’s right on track. And so he’s posted a thread containing the rules and categories of the most prestigious award on the internet:
First off I need a better title.
Secondly I realised this hasn’t happened for like a over a year (surprising since we have only had like 20 episodes) so I decided to do it all over again, same rules as before unless I decide to change them.
I am accepting suggestions for categories aswell and this year I have a very special surprise for the winners.

Have you ever encountered a goddamn hippie in the wild and had no gangsta rap/bay references/Lady Gaga at hand to make him/her feel inadequate?

You read that right guys. Metalscape, or more specifically, the Metalscape website is currently under attack by malware from sources unknown. If you’ve gotten alerts from your anti-virus software or have been redirected to some advertisement page in the last few days while browsing the site you know what I mean. We are not just standing here with our arms crossed waiting for utter destruction though, the Metalscape Site Emergency Response Task Force (MSERTF) is hard at work fighting the invasion. Zach is currently hard at work blaming me for everything, Gogo is currently hard at work not giving a fuck since his computer is so amazingly secure viruses are a non-issue to him and I’m currently hard at work writing this post in which no way will help fix the problem.
They say knowing is half the battle, and as such, I’ve begun to formulate some theories as to who may be behind these attacks. What? You thought this was just a random infection? The hell it is, there’s people who’ve been wanting to bring us down for years. But the question is who? Read on to find out just who may be involved in this…
