NEWS: as for September 3, 2011, Metalenema is back on the air with new episodes! Our new home is on HD radio (yes, actual broadcasting) via 101x in Austin, Texas. If you're local and have an HD receiver, it's at 107.1 HD2, or you can hear it worldwide every Saturday night from 10pm-12AM CST at This is no small thing, as No Control is the only 24-hour metal music station on earth besides the Sirus channels, which suck anyway!

Metalenema began in 1994 on KVRX FM Radio in Austin, Texas. Hosted by The Undertaker and Agapornis Epicac, it was the only radio show broadcast from The University of Texas that received press coverage in The Daily Texan, Austin Chronicle, and The Austin American Statesman. The show was tied to numerous touring underground concerts and boasted hundreds of listeners at the height of its popularity. It resurfaced as a guest program on BCR in Bridgewater, England, in 1999, and was then revived once more for Solarfall Radio's broacasts from late 2005 to the end of 2007.

The focus of the show is Black and Death Metal spanning the 80s, 90s, and the new millenium, as well as some good old timeworn Speed and Thrash Metal for good measure. While the music is always serious, your intrepid hosts are rarely anything but irreverent, ridiculous, and occasionally patently offensive in their quest to promote the long-lost lighter side of an art form they hold so dear.

In 2008 Solarfall became defunct, and many fans of this edition of the show demanded a proper archive. This site also features an RSS feed for podcasting, and hopefully the original KVRX episodes will make their way here before too long as well! Thanks for listening, and thanks for insisting on this project.
