To the FansThis radio station stands for the belief that metal IS relevant! There are more garage metal bands than ever and they need a witness. The only way for them to be discovered is if they are HEARD. All it takes is for you, the listener, to be able to find them. In that sense, Metal Kulture Radio is here to serve you. You will have access hundreds if not thousands of band profiles (eventually). We have a social networking platform that allows you to post updates, events, pictures, and videos. You can also meet other metalheads and create groups. I guarantee you'll be able to find your next favorite band listening to MKR.
Welcome to Metal Kulture Radio - Where the Underground Lives.
Why should you listen to MKR?
Internet Radio, in general, is an awesome way to hear what's out there. You're not going to get it all by word of mouth, as that favors local bands only. But, Metal Kulture Radio and internet radio in general has a much broader scope. Most radio on the net these days are provided by corporations that want to force feed you mass media hype. Stations like MKR do not. This is the true UNDERGROUND. You shape our airwaves and form our progress.
How does MKR work?
The AutoPlay is a randomly generated playlist that is created by band submissions. However, it is not an 'accept all' basis. This process is only successful because there are hundreds if not thousands of awesome bands that want to be heard. MKR is completely unbias in the music that is played. I (sensi) may be a fan of this or that genre (or sub-genre) but that doesn't mean you'll be subjected to my opinion on what is 'good tunes'. Bands submit music and I review it on a completely objective basis. Is it recorded well; does it fit the station format; will someone out there like this track?
You will not hear ANYTHING on MKR that you'll find on an FM station – save for someone's local college radio show, maybe.
Hell, you may not even hear this shit on any another net or sat station.
We cover all EXTREME METAL GENRES as according to Wikipedia.
Just to name a few.
To the Bands:
This radio station only exists because you do.
All we want in this whole entire world is to tell everyone that you exist. When you submit your music to us, your band will be promoted on this site via 'Just Added' articles, as well as through our social networking pages. We will never file share EVER. But! occasionally we may feature your music in an on-demand player. If we do, they will not be made available for download and will be just as secure as being on the radio. I repeat - WE WILL NEVER MAKE YOUR MUSIC AVAILABLE FOR DOWNLOAD. But we will tell them where they can purchase it!
We will occasionally feature bands on the site with a whole page dedicated to them. This decision is made from user feedback and my own observance of your awesome support.
One more thing, I have bands that have been on the bill for around 3 or 4 years. I'm still trying to weed out the ones that haven't sent me updates THEREFORE send me updated tracks PLEASE! We will keep playing the demo if you don't send us the mastered tracks or it will eventually get deleted. Also, if you are a band that has been on the station for a while and you don't see a band article for you let me know. The best way to do that is to just fill out the Submit your Band form and I will then have all the information I need to make your bio page. Don't worry about sending me tracks you know I already have unless they have been remastered or something.
That's about it. I hope you get the ideal behind Metal Kulture Radio. We are one of the few and only true underground metal radio stations around. While Net Radio is getting corporatized and charging their users a fee or commercializing the broke, we stand pround and unbroken. If you see an advertisement on this site - it has purpose. It's not just some bullshit ad that phished your pc. AND there are no ads in our stream. ONLY station IDs that bands, fans, and DJs took time to create.
So, please, take the time to browse the site. Get to know all the features that Metal Kulture Radio offers. Share your favorite shit. Voice your opinion. Let bands know that we will play their music. Let your buddies know that there's some good tunes on MKR. Our average listener time is over an hour for a reason. Because we play good shit. I'm not saying it's ALL GOOD - but that's just Sensi's opinion. MKR says it is. The Metal Kulture says it deserves a listen.
