Metal On Demand

You know what, I try to be good to you, faithful readers. Knowing that you all share a deep and meaningful love of metal (humor me, please), I know that you want easy access to some good music. So, if you look in the sidebar of jonobacon.org, you will now see a little media player which plays my last.fm radio station.

I use the excellent Banshee as my media player, and the name of each song I listen to gets sent to last.fm, and this generates my last.fm profile. From what I can tell, last.fm looks at this list and generates a radio station – as such, this radio station is full of the kind of music I listen to, which is, naturally, a good thing for man, woman, dog and cat-kind across the world. :P

    Isn’t An Ocean Between Us incredible? I thought AILD got a little stale with Shadows but the new album was my favorite metal album of last year. They definitely took some guitar lessons since Frail Worlds Collapse!

    nice, but the radio station doesn’t work for me (firefox+gnash). Can i also tune into the radio station with a stand alone client or does it only works through the webpage?

    pinky – some clients support it, like Rhythmbox. :)

    Last.fm is amazing. At work, for right now at least, I use PandoraFM, which puts all the awesomeness of Pandora and scrobbles to Last.FM. At home I use RhythmBox and scrobble what I’m listening to from there. Haven’t figured out how to scrobble from my Creative Zen, but that’s another topic for another day LOL.
