FANGSGIVING

0

 

Hey Fiends,

Hope you had a chance to catch our ‘Fangsgiving’ special last night. If you missed it, don’t panic!! We’ll be airing a rerun next week. We have decided to take a week off every month. After almost 12 years with only a handful of reruns under our belt. We have come to the conclusion that we deserve a break every month to get our heads together. Let’s face it, all the other DJ’s do it, and most of them make a helluva great paycheck. We do not make a great paycheck. We do this for the love of music. And we do this to turn YOU on to some of the most explosive music in the world. Music you will rarely hear, or never hear, from your corporate DJ’s. Our work on the national concert scene is what pays our bills. And over the last few years, our workload in the concert industry has reached epic proportions. This break every month will also give us a chance to keep THE ROCK SOLID PRESSURE SHOW on top as one of the most well known Hard Rock / Metal broadcasts in history..C’mon, 12 years and still going strong. We could have thrown in the towel many years ago like so many of our peers in this business..But we’ll ‘never’ do that. There’s too many minds out there that have not been corrupted yet (lol)

Last night was our final edition of CENTURY MEDIA MONTH. For the entire month, the first half of the show was all kickass bands from Century Media Records. They are bombarding us with some of the coolest releases on the planet. So much so, we had to dedicate the entire month to the label..Just to keep up!! We’ll still be spinning all the newest releases from the most well known Hard Rock / Metal label in the world. We just had an overabundance of music from this incredible label, and we gave ‘thanks’ in a big way!! We also celebrated our longtime friends at FRONTIERS RECORDS last night. They handle a ton of legendary bands and artists from the 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s. If you ever wondered what happened to a lot of your favorite bands from back in the day. Chances are, they are still putting out new albums on Frontiers Records

A Dark Night In The Dungeon

0

 

Hey Fiends,

If you caught the broadcast last night, you might be recovering from all the darkness and despair we dished out. Let’s face it, it’s always a dark journey on The Rock Solid Pressure Show. But last night, we just had the aura of dread throughout the broadcast.  The cards just fell into place for a track selection that was manic and morose. . We’re also enjoying CENTURY MEDIA MONTH and we’re squeezing in as much CM music as we possibly can. The label has been extremely kind to us. Not only are they THEE best Hard Rock/Metal label on the planet, but the reps are so personable and cool. YES, I am currently working on having Century Media Records at the next Industry Showcase as well..

So not only are we getting slammed with new releases from Century Media, but we’re also being slammed with new releases from our longtime family of labels. It’s getting more and more difficult to crack the vaults these days. It seems like the entire past year has seen all debut tracks on every show. In December, we promise to hit the vaults more frequently though. We’re actually working on one of those cool ‘classic’ metal shows for December..Stay posted

Veterans Day In The Dungeon / Century Media Month

0

 

Hey Fiends,

Hope you had a chance to tune in last night for our annual Veterans Day Special. We celebrate our troops and our vets all year round, but it’s an honor for us to dedicate an entire show to our military. The Rock Solid Pressure Show is one of the most patriotic Hard Rock/Metal shows on the planet, and we’re proud to have that moniker. We don’t always agree with the Government, but we go out of our way to celebrate those who protect and serve..Last night’s playlist was sprinkled with Battle Hymns and War Anthems, and the shrapnel was flying!!

We took a well deserved week off, so we were backed up in the new music dept. The Shocktober concert season nearly finished us off, and the ‘Dance Of The Dead’ broadcast was beyond horrifying this year. In fact, it was so terrifying, we ran a rerun last week for the people who did not get to experience it..Its sad to see the Halloween season go, but it’s Halloween every week down here in the Dungeon lol..You should know that by now.

CENTURY MEDIA MONTH: It’s pretty much all debut trax on the show these days. Our affiliation with some of the biggest record labels in the world is proving it difficult to go in the vaults these days though. Although the Shocktober Season always gives us a chance to crack the vaults for monstrous classics, the rest of the year is mostly debut tracks. Our affiliation with CENTURY MEDIA RECORDS is also keeping us on our toes. They have been slamming us with tons of awesome new releases, and we’re spinning every single one for you. In fact, we’re proclaiming November as CENTURY MEDIA MONTH. Each week, the first half of the show will be ‘new’ releases from Century Media. The label has been extremely kind to us, so we’re giving back and celebrating the best Hard Rock/Metal label on the planet. They have been a great addition to our family of record labels this past year, so tune in every week and raise the goblet in celebration with us..

That is mainly for out of state (and out of country) acts..
