It's time for another Wyrd Ways Rock Show, you lucky people!
This week's show is something of an experiment - I didn't write a script and the only editing I did was to cut the length of some of the pauses in my speech patterns. Other than that, this is pretty much "as live".
Sorry to say you'll hear my personal stream of consciousness as I recorded the show.
Musically, it's a real mix. There's Classic Metal, Nu-Nu Metal, Melodic Death Metal and Power Metal, plus a few others. Pretty much something for everyone. So long as you like a bit of Metal in your musical diet.
So what are you waiting for? You know the drill. Download and turn it up!Wyrd Ways Rock Show 10th February 2018

It's time for another Wyrd Ways Rock Show, you lucky people!
This week, that means new stuff from Saxon, Frozen Crown, Blaze Bayley and Ektomorf amongst a whole load of others. You're also getting a little something from a side project merging Mastodon and Tool as well as three bands you've probably never heard of in Shock Of The New and an old Hawkwind track getting a going over.
So turn the volume all the way up, crack open a beverage of your choice and enjoy just over 2 hours of the finest Metal this side of anywhere.Wyrd Ways Rock Show 1st February 2018

Here we go with the first proper show for 2018.
As usual, as you've come to expect since I started this whole thing back in 2008 (yes, it has been nearly 10 years!), you'll be treated to a grab-bag of the best up-and-coming Hard Rock and Metal alongside the best of what's out there already.
Since it looks like the usual Christmas/New Year release drought has come to an end, what have we got for you?
New stuff from Judas Priest, Korn's Jonathon Davis, Black Moth and the mighty Monster Magnet.
Also, since the last surviving member of the Motorhead line-up that recorded the likes of Ace Of Spades, Bomber, Overkill, Iron Fist, No Sleep Til Hammersmith and others, has passed away at 67, we'll be paying tribute to the legend who was Fast Eddie Clarke.
Turn it up and praise the loud!Wyrd Ways Rock Show 2018-01-21 - The Behemoth

It's finally here. The show you've been waiting for. Eighty-one (couldn't resist putting in the Electric Wizard track, even though I did say I was going to limit it to 80) songs covering a plethora of sub-genres including Death, Black, Pirate, Thrash and Proper Heavy Metal.
There's an enormous amount of excellent music here.
The most interesting segment, though, is the one that a loud minority seem to think doesn't exist: Good new bands, in which you will find contributions from Skarlett Riot, Warbringer, Dorja and a good many others from around the world.Wyrd Ways Rock Show 24th December 2017

It's the last Wyrd Ways Rock Show of 2017... or certainly the last one before the traditional Yuletide Behemoth, anyway. Despite the fact that this is, effective a Christmas show, I'll only inflict one Christmas tune on you.
It's one you'll like.
What else do we have for you?
Well, the last Record Of The Week is a bit of a cracker, then there's loads of other stuff, including Nick from Nuclear Blast having a bit of a chinwag with Robb Flynn of Machine Head.
Who says I never get you anything nice?

The countdown to Christmas now begins in earnest. Just to show I'm not a total Scrooge, I've included the full sweary version of Lawnmower Deth's collaboration with Kim Wilde.
There's also a fond farewell to Triaxis, new stuff from all over the place and... well... I'm not going to tell you who gets Record Of The Week. You'll just have to listen to the show when you've finished downloading it, or it arrives in your Inbox (if you're a Sponsor or on the mailing list).

So here we are spinning rapidly towards the end of another year. 2017 is almost over, but The Wyrd Ways Rock Show is celebrating the dying embers of this year with another slab of quality Metal.
Not only do we have new stuff from such luminaries as Machine Head, Electric Wizard and Almanac, we've got Skarlett Riot snapping up Record Of The Week with a serious slab of quality called Regenerate and a celebration of His Infernal Majesty himself, Ville Valo, as he hangs up his mascara and puts H.I.M to bed for the last time.
Loads of other good stuff too.

Get ready for (nearly – fall a couple of minutes short this week) two hours of quality Metal, including three tracks chosen by a 7 year old. You’ll also get to find out what this week’s Record Of The Week is and experience new material from Savage Messiah, Diablo Swing Orchestra, LA Guns (yes, you did read that correctly!) and the latest news from Download at Donington.Wyrd Ways Rock Show 4th November 2017

Did you catch the Hallowe'en Special a few days ago? If you didn't, click on the link for the last show for a couple of hours of spooky Metal (and a little silliness), including the likes of Dr Stein, The Monster Mash, Her Ghost In The Fog and Welcome To My Nightmare.
For this week's show, David's making his debut appearance as co-presenter with his very own feature, The 7 Year Old's Guide To Awesome Metal. There's also contributions of new stuff from the reformed Madam X, Italian Folksters, Elvenking, friends of The Wyrd Ways Rock Show and rising stars, Skarlett Riot and a very decent splurge of German Power Metal pioneers, Helloween.
Incidentally, you can also stream us on Soundcloud, Mixcloud and the TuneIn radio app. Just go to their homepages and search for The Wyrd Ways Rock Show. Same applies if you want to follow us on Facebook, Reverbnation, Twitter or Instagram.
