So, today I've posted a new review from a new contributor specializing in obscure bands, which will be a great help. Her first piece was on an album that I actually have been really enjoying. I know Mason would say I'm always too kind, and that maybe I am influenced by it being a young band with their first album, but I'd say her B grade might be a tad on the safe side. The band is Turbulence and the album is Disequilibrium, and we'll be playing music from them over the next few weeks.

The review is here: http://wpapu.com/review-turbulence-disequilibrium/

The next bit of news regards the Music Mixer. We've released December's version and I'm really enjoying these, and really look forward to working on them in the new year. And with that in mind, I'm happy to announce that former co-host and guitarist for MindMaze, Jeff Teets will be joining Mason, Joe, and I in January to be the first guest in the Music Mixer series.

The one we just did is here: http://wpapu.com/ep-328-december-music-mixer/

Finally, at tomorrow's show I hope to announce the date for the big year end show, and finalize the times for that. :D

Will check out that album.

I didn't know I could handle another 10 inches and it was rough but in the end I'm glad I did it.

Well, I kinda got bored with the Jolly and Steven Wilson talk to tell you the truth.  Nothing against you/Mason/Joe (though, I was expecting King!  :lol), just the topic of conversation wasn't too interesting for this cochise.  Then I had a work call to take.

I'll try to get back to it tomorrow or Thursday, as TA and Cruise to the Edge are more interesting to me.

You've got a little less than that, you should be at the year end shows!

Wait, did I say shows? Why yes I did.

I was working on my year end list for the site last night, and it kinda dawned on me that an extended 4 hour show probably wouldn't be enough this year. Frankly it usually isn't enough in past years as I always run past the 4 hour mark. So then I figured I'd do a 5 hour show. And, well, if I've gone that far, why not just split it up over 2 normal shows?

So that's what I'm doing. Part 1 will be on December 30, and part 2 will be on January 6.

Also, show tonight! Feature is Blind Guardian AND we'll be GIVING AWAY A FREE KYROS EP!

I like the idea of two year end shows.  Committing to a single 4 hour was tough last couple of years, so two shows feels a lot better.  You want we should give you some 2015 gems of songs/bands that maybe were off your radar?

Well, I thought the magic of the end-of-the-year show was that it's longer than usual, but yeah, 5 hours is an overkill if you ask me.

Too bad I probably won't make it there at 30th December. There might be a way if by some miracle our company leaders will non-officially decide no one should work at 31st (that happened before in 2012 I think, but it was Monday, so there's that), so I guess I'll have to wait and see. :tup

Yeah, it would be nice to keep it all in one day, but frankly 5+ hours of show is longer than *I* want to listen to myself. :lol

Yeah, I haven't started the process of making those sets yet, but you of course know how to get a hold of me, so send away.

Not final yet, but I've begun work on the 2016 intros.

Nick, I just subscribed to the podcasts so I can listen when I get a chance.  I can never make it for the live show, but I definitely want to check out the shows.

Much appreciated! :tup

As I've said before, I'm not one for podcasts myself, but a ton of other people are, and I definitely see their practicality now. Going on average numbers, I'd say that there are 5 people podcasting the show for every 1 live listener.

That said... live show in 1 hour!

Latest show is up, the EP I'm giving away is great, so try to win it!

Quote
As 2015 winds down to a close I’ve taken a look back at an album I missed earlier in the year, Blind Guardian‘s Beyond the Red Mirror. We talked a good bit about this album in our recent Music Mixer podcast, which can be found here. The exciting thing for the band and this release is that they’ve finally returned to North America to support the album, and will be making at least one appearance in 2016 thanks to a headlining gig at the ProgPower USA festival in September. You can purchase yourself a copy of the new album here.

Now, the fun news, you can win yourself a free CD! As I talked about numerous times during the show, all you have to do is leave a comment here and you will be entered for the prize, which is the new Beta EP from the band Kyros. The winner will be drawn at the start of next week’s show, and announced then. Good luck to everyone! And for those who don’t win, please consider supporting the band at their web shop here.

There was also a ton of music news this week. One bit, which was released last month, but I forgot to post was that Queensryche will be hitting the road to support Condition Human. Check out their tour page here to see if they are coming near you. Much later in the year Marillion will be hitting the road, and you can get their dates in the educational video below!



Then of course we had a few album announcements for the new year. First comes from Rikard Sjoblum of Gungfly and Beardfish, who is set to release his first proper solo album in the new year. It’s called The Unbendable Sleep, and you can read more about it here. Next, there is a vague plan for a new Bruce Dickinson solo album, and you can read more about that here. Finally, Pyramid Theorem has new stuff in the works, and you can check out their new video below.



Oh, and let us not forget Serenity, who will be releasing Codex Atlanticus on January 29th! Their new video is available as well!



Finally, the band Turbulence made their debut on the show tonight, and there is a review of their album Disequilibrium available on this very site, at this very moment! You can check that out here.

Did I just say finally? What I meant to say is we’re almost done here. In a bit of show related news, our yearly epic length year-end wrap-up show this year is being broken down into two normal length shows. These are always some of the most fun all year, so hopefully some podcasters can join us in chat as we look back on another fantastic year in music. The shows will be on December 30th and January 6th. Talk to you all again next week!

Show in two hours!

Tonight we're featuring Iris Divine! Was prepping for the year end list/podcast and figured it might be nice to feature them prior to that coming out this weekend. :)

Then 1 more normal show next week, and then the following two will be the year end wrap ups.

Only one more normal show left this year! Yes, we’re winding down here in 2015, and of course it’s time for a bit of reflection. Over the course of the year we’ve been able to feature a lot of fantastic albums, but there are some that fell through the cracks. Karma Sown from Iris Divine is certainly one of those albums. The Virginia based band originally released the disc themselves in December of 2014, but saw it get re-released on Sensory Records at the end of March.

I must say that Sensory Records has an amazing history of finding talented bands and helping launch their careers, examples being Circus Maximus, Redemption, and Haken. Iris Divine have laid the foundation for a similar rise within the genre. You can cut in on the action and get your copy of Karma Sown right here.

Next up, the big chunk of new news for the week, is that pre-orders for The Unbendable Sleep, the new Rikard Sjoblum solo album, are up, and you can order it directly from Rikard here. As a bonus, all orders before December 24 (up to 100), that are ordered from Rikard will come with his first solo CD Cyklonmannen. In addition, there is a nice teaser video which can be viewed below!



That’s it for music news, but there was also a show announcement I’m hoping you fine folks can help with. In order to get further established on iTunes, please visit the shows page here, and leave a 5-star review for us! Your help is always appreciated! Don’t forget to stay tuned to the site/podcatcher this weekend for the Best of 2015 podcast!

Really happy to be able to do the list audio in a discussion format. Really not happy that Joe and Mason refuse to accept Arjen as their lord and savior.

I always enjoy reading these lists. I'll have to listen to the discussion about them later, but I can tell right away that there are some albums I'm going to need to try again, as well as new stuff. That Beardfish album didn't grab me after a couple listens, but I ought to give it another try. Joe's list has the most albums/artists I've not heard, so that will need to be remedied (checking out Vennart right now).

Nice to see the Marco Minnemann love. He obviously deserves it, as does The Aristocrats's album.

Will try to get to this on the weekend.  Is Joe = Tingle?  Haven't heard of a single one of his albums.  A few on your list, Nick, would crack my top 10, and still others were disappointments (Evovex... don't get the love for this).

For what it's worth, Joe had the most albums I hadn't heard yet either! He'll be contributing a few tracks to the year end so they'll be included.

As for Marco, yeah, that was really cool he came together like that. We all submitted our lists and didn't adjust it to be like that. It was one thing for Mason and I to have a few things together last year, but it speaks volumes about Marco that we all picked him this year, and none of us really gave strong consideration to anyone else.

Marco also did a great job on Amadeus Awad album this year.

I've heard tracks from that, but never got the full album. Doesn't surprise me in the least.

Joseph Tingle, yessir.

Exovex, I can see why some people may not find it exciting, but I really found it well done, and look forward to seeing if the next one can keep up.

Show tonight!

Gonna be a neat one. Playing stuff from pre-2000 only. Featuring Royal Hunt's Paradox album to help promote their new crowd funding campaign... and that's it for promotion.

Lots of classic prog and metal, with a lot from bands I don't really play too much of. Going to be a fun show.

So I worked my ass off again this full weekend as I did the previous three weekends too, but instead for signing up for OT this Sunday I said to my boss "screw it, don't sign me up for OT this last Sunday, for I'm not gonna show up at 31st Dec because I need to prepare for New Year celebrations and all that" and he agreed, so I'll definitely be there on the show at 30th Dec.

The sacrifices I make for the WPAPU show. :lol

Last week during the broadcast I started to ween off of new music and 2015 material, and this week it’s been severed completely. In preparation for the 2015 wrap-up shows which will happen over the next two weeks, this week’s show featured only material from before 2000, with much of it from the 1970s or 1980s. One notable exception was the featured album, 1997’s Paradox from Royal Hunt. This particular album was performed in full when the band played ProgPower USA this past September, and will be part of a live release the band is currently crowdfunding. You can be a part of that campaign here. Oh, and a quick correction from my last bit of jibber jabber in the podcast, I meant to say “Silent Scream” was the last song we were playing for the night, and incorrectly said it was the final track on the album. Forgive me people of the internet!

And that’s it for the musical promotion this week folks! No new artists to check out, no other albums I’m asking you to buy, but just a nice look back at the older side of prog and traditional metal!

All that changes over the next few weeks however, as on Wednesday, December 30th, and January 6th the shows will be dedicated to only 2015 material. In addition, we’ve recorded a discussion podcast to go along with the year-end list of the main show contributors. Please check that out here if you haven’t already!

See you next week when we take on 2015!

Dear lord.

I'm skipping the favorite epics of the year, trying to pick mostly shorter songs, and still... 6 hours will not be enough...

So, it looks like we'll be starting both nights an hour early.

Holy shit!  I'll try to be there for the whole thing, but no promises.  I've already prepped mrs.jingle that this is what I'm doing for the next two Wednesdays.
I didn't know I could handle another 10 inches and it was rough but in the end I'm glad I did it.

Shit, I actually misjudged the time. I thought 5 P.M. EST equals midnight in Moscow, but apparently it equals 1 A.M. there. Seeing how I've been waking up for more than two weeks at 5 A.M. everyday this is going to be tough. :lol

Still, I'm excited for the show. Maybe I should go and sleep for a few hours before it begins. Hopefully the alarm will work alright.

I know it's not easy for people to listen and chat live, and I really do appreciate those of you who are able to make it, even if it's only for a little bit.

This kicks off in just about 2.5 hours, and I'm very much looking forward to it!

Here it is, the big one! Or at least the first part of it. A nice long look back at the amazing year in music that was 2015. The original plan called for a 4 or 5 hour extended show. Then I decided to do a full 6 hours over two weeks. Finally, in order to truly include everything I had wanted, and that others had submitted, I decided to extend both year-end shows to four hours. This episode runs over by about 5 minutes, and I feel next week could certainly go longer! So much amazing music to review.

A huge thank you to everyone who made the show possible over the year. From the bands making the beautiful music, to the promoters who help get it to my ears, to the station and everyone involved there that give me a platform to further promote the music. Then of course is all the wonderful people listening live, chatting, and podcasting to give me the drive and the market for the show. And of course a special thank you to all those who came out tonight to chat to put the special into this extra special show.

Next week (Jan. 6) we’ll continue the 2015 wrap-up fun, and then be back to the usual grind, but not before our January Music Mixer goes live on Saturday, January 9th.

Bummer that I missed C&C in the first few songs.   :biggrin:

'twas most excellent, and I've begun my recruitment for the show to further it's global expansion.
I didn't know I could handle another 10 inches and it was rough but in the end I'm glad I did it.

Yeah, listened to the podcast and indeed, If Eternity Should Fall was the first track. Nick screwed up the recap too. :lol
