Site Update

Metal Underground has set up a streaming radio station via Launch.com's cool technology

Metal Underground has set up a streaming radio station via Launch.com's cool technology. You can listen to this station by clicking on the link on the left under the navigation links (and go through a short setup process the first time).

I stumbled upon Launch.com some time ago and thought it was an MP3.com wannabe. Not the case... In fact, Launch.com lets you listen to customized online stations and even set up your own. Music is served up randomly (due to the Digial Millenium Act) but you have the ability to pick the genres you want to hear, and the rate each individual artist, album, and song to play more frequently or never again.

The one caveat is that the technology is not all that stable in my experience. I have trouble listening at work behind a firewall, and the program takes up a good bit of my CPU usage on my weaker Pentium II-300 at home.

If you're feeling adventurous, give it a shot. I can't guarantee it'll work for everyone at this point, but if it does work, it's well worth it! I hope at least a few people enjoy this new feature.
