Wyrd Ways Rock Show 296

As a rule, I don’t tend to do themed shows, but this whole thing about treating “female-fronted Metal” as a genre on it’s own really annoys me.  That’s why every band you will hear on The Wyrd Ways Rock Show this week is fronted by a woman.  That means you’ll be hearing from Izegrim, Holy Moses, Triaxis and Huntress among many others.  You can listen to it by streaming or downloading by either going to the website’s front page HERE or by clicking on THIS LINK.

The show also features Covered and a Shock Of The New that fits in with this week’s theme. You say you need more?  The best way to get more is to subscribe, by heading for THIS PAGE and choosing the option that best suits you.

If you subscribe starting with this week’s show, you’ll be getting the show at a much higher quality level than the broadcast, as usual.  You’ll also be gaining access to an exclusive Members Area, which includes a massive archive of previous shows as well as various other bits and pieces.

The broadcast version of The Wyrd Ways Rock Show appears on The Wall every Monday at 11pm GMT and Planet Mosh every Thursday at 6pm GMT.

If you want me to mention your gigs or play your music on the show, get in touch.
