I never have been a metal fan, but after meeting him and seeing Jose's awesone personality and his love for the music.. It peaked my interest enough to listen to Hardatack and Octane for a good two and a half hour period last week! Octane was not bad, but Hardatack was still a little too strong for me and made me go back to my "girly" channel, The Beat.

I've always been a positive dude, so I hope we both blow up so big that metal will just be seeping through the ears of listeners country wide! Regardless of what company it is.
Now that's just an awesome statement Jose! All this battling between LM and Hard Attack depends on the listener and what they like. I like Liquid Metal because it is more underground, more violent, more vulgar. But let's all agree metal is true music that should be heard. I wish for just one minute I could make every pop/top40/hit/workday radio station in the country go to dead air and be replaced by hard edge metal from Lamb of Gob, Slayer, Mushroomhead, etc to expose the world to the sub genre of heavy metal. I hate that pop shit, as I image most metal fans do.

Now there would be a plan to have people sign up for Sirius and XM in droves!

Jose, thanks for taking the time to post a very passionate and insightful post so we can see where you are coming from. Metal isn't my thing, but you obviously have the intuition and insights to make a stream that reaches out to a big audience. For the streams that I listen to, I can only hope they have 1/2 the passion for their music genre that you have

Keep the posts coming, I think you are building a fan base right here. And that is totally cool that you are going to mention this site or thread on the air!

Jose,

Very nice post, thanks to you and Hard Attack I get to listen to the music that should dominate, unlike this damn rap crap. I really like listening to bands I saw several years ago that are still going strong and others that I wouldn't have discovered if it wasn't for Hard Attack. I even went to concerts to see the openers rather than the main performer, but who could blame me opening acts, Mudvayne, ill Nino, Spineshank, and I believe hatebreed or nothingface (3 years ago I can't remember for sure), it was a damn good show

It sure as hell would be cool to hang out with a renowned tattoo artist. That reminds me its time to make an appointment to get my half sleave finished Maybe I can sell my shop on Sirius.

Hey any chance we can get a sold punk station?

Jose,

You are my savior! Finally someone who understands how to satisfy the masses! I checked out the 20 minute preview stream of Hard Attack from the Web two weeks ago, and I was sold on Sirius. In fact, I sold my XM rig the following Tuesday and I am anxiously awaiting my Brix Labs Streamer. I think its coming Tuesday and I can't wait!!!

There are so many kinds of Metal and they all need equal play. If current metal scene is the type of music that XMLM plays all the time, I dig that, but their playlists are too narrow and they are not advertised that way - so its pretty misleading.

Has anyone hear the Iron Maiden concert at Waldrock this summer? If you were there, awesome! I streamed it from a shoutcast site in the Netherlands and Bruce Dickenson/Steve Harris/Brian D'iano (not sure which) between songs started talking about all the different kinds of metal and his take was that granted Iron Maiden is a metal band, it didn't matter because Iron Maiden is, F#CKING IRON MAIDEN. They are still around, along with Motorhead, and Judas Priest, and I would consider them still mainstream metal but unfortunately, I didn't hear them played much at all on XMLM unless it was requested.

Variety key. Give us the broad spectrum. Just be HEAVY!!!

Hooah!

Mark

I was riding down the interstate listening to HardAttack yesterday, and heard Jose give a shout-out to SiriusBackstage, and told everyone how awesome the people are on this site. Outstanding!

I'm SO diggin' HardAttack lately... either my music taste are changing or HardAttack just keeps getting better and better. I'll accept either!

Oh, and Jose, we can never have enough Arch Enemy.

O.M.G. (Hope I don't sound like a Valley Girl - wrong coast anyway).

Got my Streamer fired up in my "Beamer" and drove to work this morning listening to HardAttack and I was in Heaven!

S.O.D. and Shadows Fall were on, and with the FM Transmitter that comes with the Streamer profi kit - I was crankin'!

Nothing beats hammering down 684 listening to Great Metal!!!!!!!

Keep it up, keep it loud, and most of all, KEEP IT HEAVY!!!!!!!

HOOAH!

I've been a Sirius subscriber for a year and a half now and love it! Wish I had found these boards earlier, but found them by accident tonight.

Hard Attack is the main stream I listen to, and Jose, Opie, Tom and the rest of the HA crew kick all amounts of ass! I've gotten into a lot of metal bands that I have only heard of by name, but never heard music by them...and it's all thanks to Hard Attack!

Jose's death metal show, Beyond the Pit @ 10pm EST, is simply phenominal!! From Carcass to Obituary, anything death/black metal you could imagine never hearing on standard radio is there. When Jose had Paul Booth in the studio a few weeks ago, Paul played a Burzum song...OMG that was just the total greatest! Rock on Jose and the rest of the HA crew!!

Thanks for reminding me I need to tell Lee Abrams that XMLM really needs to expand the play list on XMLM wich I find lame and yes I find the Bone yard better as well.

At one of my local best buys (Manchester, CT), Hard Attack is THE reason they reccomend Sirius to all the customers. They leave it on that all day, unless a customer wants to hear something else. Octane is how I'm getting all my friends to pick up Sirius. I gotta say, for what Metal is (more of an Octane kinda guy), Hard Attack definately seems to have the right mix of underground, mainstream, and classic metal. If all jocks care about their music as much as Jose does, it won't be long before Sirius is taking over. Here in Poughkeepsie, I see Sirius antennas all the time, but rarely see a XM logo on the back.

Subroc,

Do you live in Manchester and work in POK?

As for XMLM vs Hardattack, Jeff hits it on the money. HA plays all metail, whereas XMLM tends to play mainly underground/hardcore that even I get sick of listening to and I listen to Metal and Hardcore all the time.

In fact, I previewed HA online for 20 mins and I was hooked immediately. Sold my XM outfit to coworker and have been doing the dog for about a month now.

Hard attack may be a great program, but a metal station playing at Best Buy just seems like a strange combination. It's definitely a way to get 100% of the metal heads (if I may call them that) interested!
