Radio is dying. Mainstream 'pop' music is choking the life from it, with its glamour, greed and "celebrity". Its bleeps and farts. Its soul-crushing, anti-music "experts" are sat on commissioning panels, hard at work picking the next 'hit' for the unthinking majority in an endless cycle of shite. It doesn't have to be that way.
Thankfully, there are some radio stations that have the foresight and the open-mindedness to address this situation, by allowing more METAL on the air! Calon FM is one such station, and they bring you this show weekly. And now, even more stations are seeing the light across the globe, and Australia's 2NVR is the latest station to host POWERZONE as part of Todd Wills' Friday Rock Show. We bring the BRUTAL to you weekly on the following stations:
Calon FM 105FM Monday 9pm-11pm [UK]
2NVR 105.9FM 8pm-10pm [NSW Australia]
POWERZONE prides itself on being different. We play things most other shows would baulk at. Power metal, Folk metal, Black metal, Death metal, Thrash, Viking, Symphonic, the list goes on.
A lot of hard work goes into producing a successful POWERZONE show, so as you can tell, we put very little effort into each one. Just kidding; of course, we spend many hours listening to and picking all the best metal tracks from across the globe. We’ve partnered with some huge record labels, including Nuclear Blast, Metal Blade, Napalm Records, SPV, Century Media and others, so we get albums for review and release first, which means often we can premier huge new singles before other mainstream stations. We also get invited to a huge number of gigs and offers of interviews, which often we don’t have enough time to attend. If you live in the UK and Ireland, and you fancy some of this action, leave us a message on our Facebook page and we’ll discuss.
Do you want POWERZONE to feature on YOUR radio station? Drop me an email, we'll be happy to talk! -GoM
