Wyrd Ways Rock Show 2.04

9/18/2020
I know I say this pretty much every time, but there's a whole load of new stuff in this latest edition of The Wyrd Ways Rock Show. You have my cast iron guarantee you will hear something in this show that you've never heard before. You may even discover your new favourite band. There's certainly enough candidates. Before I started compiling the playlist even I'd never heard seventeen of these songs before. Not only is there an absolute f*ck-tonne of new stuff, there's also all your...

Wyrd Ways Rock Show 2.03

9/6/2020
After last week's show, I thought I'd go a bit Heavier this time out. So for those of you who like a bit more Thrash and Death Metal in your auditory diet, there's a little more for you to get your teeth into. That doesn't mean the fans of Hard Rock and Power Metal are left high and dry, though. There's definitely a few moments for you in there, too. Personal picks for this week among the new stuff include Thrasherwolf, Defecto and Schwarzer Engel. This week's Spotlight band are also...

Wyrd Ways Rock Show 2.02

8/28/2020
What have we got for you in this week's Wyrd Ways Rock Show? Simple answer is loads of good quality Metal, starting with new stuff from Finntroll, Carcass and Machine Head. Not only that, but there's a Covered that you might find somewhat surprising and a Russian Roulette choice that you might not find at all surprising. Generally, as usual, two hours of quality Hard Rock and Metal. What more do you need?

Wyrd Ways Rock Show 2.01

8/20/2020
Hello friends! Some of you are probably wondering why I changed the name of the show. Some of you are probably wondering why I changed the name back to the original. It's basically the same answer: It was something I felt like I needed to do. It's been two years since I last used the name "The Wyrd Ways Rock Show", and part of the reason I've not really done much podcasting in the meantime is that it's not felt right for a while. The difference now is that it's starting to feel more right...

WWRS: The Forge 2.13 - Unlucky For Some

5/31/2020
Unlucky for some? It certainly was for this particular edition of The Forge. Just as I was starting to pull the track listing together, the amount of new music that tickled my particular aural taste buds decreased to the point where it was a choice between pausing to stay with "all killer" or carry on with "filler". I obviously decided to keep to my personal standard of "all new killer, no filler" for my show. The unfortunate side effect was that you, my loyal listener, had to wait a few...

WWRS: The Forge 2.12

5/2/2020
I know what you're thinking. Has it been six weeks or only five? In all this excitement I've lost count myself. But being as this is WWRS: The Forge, the world's most powerful podcast and can blow your head clean off... You've got to ask yourself one question... "Do I feel lucky?"... Well, do ya? Well, you should because what I've got for you is nearly two hours of quality Hard Rock and Metal from all over the world. But this is WWRS: The Forge, so that's only to be expected, really,...

WWRS: The Forge 2.11 - Getting A Bit Rant-y

4/26/2020
Four weeks into lockdown and I think it's safe to say there's going to be a few people going a bit stir crazy. Although most of the crazy seems to be coming from the American side of The Pond. It would seem the old saying "You can't cure stupid" has got itself a new second half of the sentence. I do have a little bit of a rant about that, so if you are a self-identifying "conservative", you might want to skip on, especially if you are of a more sensitive disposition. In terms of music, it's...

WWRS: The Forge 2.10 - The One With The REALLY Long Songs

4/18/2020
Don't panic... Empire Of The Clouds isn't one of the long songs in this week's edition of The Forge. I do have SOME taste and discernment! Anyway, getting away from slagging off what is probably the worst song recorded by one of my favourite bands... Remember back in the old days of The Wyrd Ways Rock Show I used to have a bit of a weakness for playing very, very long songs? You will probably be glad to know I still have that weakness. There are a number of tracks in this week's show that...

4/16/2020
Let's give this another try then, shall we? One of these days I'll hit a formula that works for me and you'll get yourself exposed to some of the best Metal you've ever heard. Yes, there'll be old stuff. There'll also be a lot of new stuff, since the mission here at The Forge is to help get some new stuff into your ears. Let's do this.

WWRS: The Forge 2.09

4/5/2020
Oops! Have to admit I've surprised myself (but not necessarily in a pleasant way) in that this edition of The Forge has taken considerably longer to produce than I was expecting. I'm going to blame the onset of a global pandemic of the coronavirus named COVID-19 for this one. Anyway, it's (as usual, if you don't mind me saying) a cracker of a show for you this time out. There's new songs from Firewind, Testament, Jinjer and many others. It just illustrates how global Metal truly is. There...

WWRS: The Forge 2.08 - Still Not Doing The Toxic Waltz

3/16/2020
Thanks to some IT related shenanigans, this week's show is somewhat delayed. Basically, I attempted to trade in my laptop, but since the trade-in price was a massive drop from the estimate, I turned it down, so I've had to delay getting my new computer built. In other news, if you've ever thought, "Hmm... I'd really love to support Carl in making WWRS: The Forge, but have no idea how to do it", here's some ways: 1) This one specifically applies to bands, pluggers and labels: send me music...

WWRS: The Forge 2.07 - How to not be Unclean!

3/12/2020
Ahem... erm... this was meant to be coming out last weekend, but life got in the way. Anyway, here it is: episode 7 of season 2 of WWRS: The Forge. If anyone is unfamiliar, The Forge is the sequel to The Wyrd Ways Rock Show, which I did for something like 10 years until a time when my mental health took a massive nosedive and I sacked it all off and seriously thought at jacking it in completely. The thing is, I started doing The Wyrd Ways Rock Show because of a total lack of Hard Rock and...

WWRS: The Forge 2.06 - It's Leap Day!

2/29/2020
Any Manowar fans out there? You're in for a bit of a treat, then. Not only do we kick off with a bit of classic Manowar, we've also got a cover of another classic by a really rather excellent band (featuring a guest appearance) and something brand new from a certain Mr Friedman. As usual, and probably more importantly, the commitment of The Forge to new music remains strong - new stuff from Jinjer, Five Finger Death Punch, Kaos Krew and Wishing Well amongst many others. As with the last...

WWRS: The Forge 2.05

2/23/2020
It's nearly the end of February and here's your latest almost regular dose of new quality Metal. In this show, myself and my furry co-presenter (who only sticks around for the first link - typical cat) introduce you to a load of stuff you've never heard before. In fact, if this edition of WWRS: The Forge DOESN'T introduce you to something you've never heard before, you can have your money back. And since I'm a Yorkshireman, that should help you understand how serious that I am about my...

WWRS: The Forge 2.04 - Like a bear with a sore head

2/7/2020
This episode is brought to you by Aldi's Cookie Dough ice cream and the number.... erm.... 4? Will that do the job? I mean, it is the fourth 'cast of this Season 2 version of The Forge. Anyway... loads and loads of new stuff plus some old stuff that's new, since it's never really been heard before. Kind of makes you realize that Black Sabbath weren't the only ones ploughing the same furrow back in the late 60's and early 70's. It's just that they got there first and they had something the...

WWR: The Forge 2.03 - Where's My F**king Jetpack

1/17/2020
This one was supposed to come out last week. The problem is, the release schedules hadn't really kicked in enough that I could do a full show. OK, I could have filled up the rest of the airtime with old stuff, but that's not what The Forge is all about. The Forge is all about new stuff, so I delayed the release until it was all new stuff bar a couple of songs that I love. Since there's been a few more days of releases, the show is ready to roll out. So here it is. The first edition of The...

WWRS: The Forge 2.02 - The Christmas-ish Episode

12/25/2019
Hans Gruber has taken his fall off the top of the Nakatomi Plaza in Los Angeles... so to quote Noddy Holder, "Iiiiiit's Chriiiiiistmaaaaaaas!" I don't normally do Christmas shows, but since this hasn't been a normal year, I thought I'd try and break my speed record for recording, mixing and publishing, and what you've got here is the result: A somewhat half-baked edition of The Forge. It's even more random than usual, since the links were literally right off the top of my head and done as...

WWRS: The Forge 2.00 - Turn Up The Heaviosity!

8/27/2019
When I started The Wyrd Ways Rock Show, there was really nothing on the radio or TV covering Hard Rock and Metal. Since then, things have improved. with Primordial Radio (so good I bought part of the company!) getting the balance mostly right. That said, they don't really do much with the Heavier end. Which is fair enough when you consider that Pete, their music co-ordinator isn't really into the PROPER Heavy stuff, and based on that, he doesn't really have the industry contacts in that...

WWRS: The Forge 1.05 - Once More... With Feeling!

8/16/2019
Let's try this again, shall we? Now the old mental health is not so bad (even though I am still... erm... unbusy, so if anyone's got any jobs going, let me know!), I thought it was time to resurrect this whole podcast thing. Believe it or not, this one's been brewing since March, so with a few tweaks, it's now ready. Let's light 'em up.

Primordial Radio's #OWWB Re-Rewind 2019.03.13

3/14/2019
Every Wednesday on Moose's breakfast show on Primordial Radio, he runs One Word Wednesday BIngo, where those listening attempt to guess some songs from single word clues. We do this to attempt to win the covetted Hive Mind badge. Someone else, chosen at random from the entries gets to pick the next week's tracks. In the drivetime show, Dewsbury gives his own take, and more often than not gets a very low score (one point for the correct artist, one point for the correct song). Honestly, I...
