Calling all metalheads and music lovers!
Are you tired of the same old mainstream tunes dominating the airwaves? Do you long for the thunderous riffs, electrifying solos, and raw energy that only heavy metal can deliver? Look no further! We are KMET-DB MetalRadio LIVE, an independent station, your haven for unapologetic, heavy metal music.
Who We Are:
We're not just a radio station; we're a community of die-hard metal enthusiasts committed to showcasing the full spectrum of heavy metal subgenres. From classic metal to thrash, doom to power metal, and everything in between, we're dedicated to bringing you the music that ignites your soul and makes your head bang.
But here's the deal: keeping an independent heavy metal station on the airwaves comes with a price. We need your support to cover the ever-increasing licensing fees required to play the tracks that make our station stand out. These fees ensure that artists and creators are rightfully compensated for their incredible work, while also allowing us to keep the metal spirit alive and well.
There are four essential licensing services that require approximately $300 each for proper music usage: ASCAP, BMI, SESAC, and SoundExchange. ASCAP, BMI, and SESAC handle performance rights, ensuring that songwriters, composers, and publishers receive fair compensation when their music is played publicly. SoundExchange, on the other hand, focuses on digital performance rights, collecting and distributing royalties to recording artists and copyright holders for digital broadcasts and streaming services. These payments are crucial to supporting the music ecosystem by fairly compensating all parties involved in creating and sharing music.
Why Your Support Matters:
By contributing to our campaign, you're not just helping to cover licensing fees – you're fueling a movement. You're standing up for the bands and artists who deserve recognition beyond the mainstream. You're making sure that the airwaves remain a platform for the music that resonates with us on a primal level.
What Your Donation Supports:
Every dollar you donate goes directly towards securing the licenses that allow us to play the songs that define the heavy metal genre. We're not just preserving the music; we're preserving the culture, the attitude, and the rebellious spirit that has united metalheads for generations.
Join Us in Keeping Heavy Metal Alive:
Whether you're a long-time metal enthusiast or simply someone who believes in the power of independent music, your contribution matters. Let's come together to ensure that the pulse-pounding, ear-shredding, soul-stirring sounds of heavy metal continue to echo through the airwaves.
