...a very Metal Thrashmas from CACOPHONY!

        ~C A C O P H O N Y~
Christchurch's very own HEAVY METAL radio show.

Listen or Download CACOPHONY at

This, the penultimate show of the year for CACOPHONY, is the one before the Red Satan falls down your chimney [or through your sliding door] in a drunken stupor, smashes your gifts, tries to rape your 4 legged domesticated beasties and attempts to make a getaway by riding the Xmas tree like a broom!

At least that's what happens most years in the 'Messiah household…

On this show we feature Machine Head and The German Panzer in a Metal Thrashing of laid back headbanger tunes. New music from Black Star Riders, Inquisition, Envenomed and Recoil – plus – a "new" old track from Weedeater. The usual NZ Metal suspects turn up and the Lostmessiah will mosh about wildly in between voice breaks [which is why you don't see him on TV… well… it's ONE of the reasons!]

As always a HUGE metal salute " \m/ " to all of the Bands, Labels and Distros that send us great Metal to play and review on the show and who organise countless interviews with bands coming "down under" to New Zealand and Australia.

This week its thanks to Nuclearblast Records and John at Riot Entertainment.

Molten Metal Show 11th December

The Show this week is the best of 2014 Part 1 featuring music from Just One Fix,  Weapon UK, Avenger , Chrome Division & Much more.

Glam N' Cheese

This week we trial a live video stream of the show, so listen to this link if you want to hear the songs we play, and check out the video stream that is still available if you want to hear what we get up to during the songs ( Anyway, this week we kick off with some classic Def Leppard and also some interesting trivia on the band. We discuss Megadeth and then play a sombre number from them. We play some Confess for Howie’s belated birthday. We also rock out some new Lordi and Autograph. Ant spends the whole show trying to figure out how to play music from an actual CD. He then spends ages figuring out how to play a DVD in the background. We’re up to the second song from VAIN’s debut album for our Vital Vain segment, playing one track every week from start to finish. We play a Guns N' Roses classic by L.A. Guns and discuss whether it’s technically a cover or their own version. Then we both simultaneously break into the obligatory head nodding in the breakdown. For Antvice this week Brendon tries to help out a listener with an old hubby that just can’t get enough of himself! Then we wrap up the show by forcing open the dirty old Box of Extra Cheesy Goodness for some Matt & Trey theme music!

House Of Noizz

Hey, it's Ozzy's birthday, so, yeah... expect some Ozzy!! Plus some really cool announcements, Mandatory Manowar and... We're getting deep, maybe too deep into discussing stuff. But hey, that's just what we do!

Molten Metal Show

The last regular show of the year features new music from Avenger, Weapon UK, & Judas Priest. Plus tracks from Sebastian Bach, Kamelot, Cobra Khan & much more.
