It would be even more amazing if my premium account that i just signed in with actually gave me my premium access... (^_^;)

Their website says, "Windows Phone 7 app coming soon". I cannot believe how companies like this cannot even manage their app download page properly. Seems like that page hasn't been updated in over a year.

Yup. It has.. Black Metal, Classic Metal, Death Metal, Djent Metal, Heavy Metal, Melodic Death Metal, Metal, Metalcore, Nu-Metal, Power Metal, Progressive Metal, Rap Metal, Symphonic Metal and Thrash Metal. 

 

It has a lot of metal. 

It's the chemical joke I couldn't resist making. Sorry. :/ :P BTW, non-ferrous metallurgy refers to the processes that are used in the extraction of non-Iron metals from their respective ores, e.g. Aluminium from Bauxite. :)

I love all the streaming music options, but what I really want from all of them is OFFLINE listening like Nokia! Why oh why is this not a more popular feature? Music chews through my data plan like crazy! Offline downloading on WiFi solves all my problems.

Spotify isn't radio... It is like mix radio in that it is curated playlists of music... it's a completely different business model.

Posted via the WPC App for Android!

Radio is still a 'curated playlists of music' :) Traditionally it's done by a human instead of an algorithm. In Spotify you can click "Start Radio" on any artist to play music from the same artist and other artists you might also like. You can add Last.fm, Soundrop etc to the desktop app too.

Pretty amazing collection of radio apps I've got, plus Nokia mix radio, plus a couple of music download apps (for free). Life is good for music on WP :)

Nice! I much prefer music apps to the radio. The CRTC mandates 40% Canadian content on the airwaves. One can only take so much Nickelback...

Now, I gotta see what they have for Punk! Id like a station that basically just played NOFX, Bad Religion., Lagwagon, Hot Water Music, D4, Bouncing Souls and that brand of punk, id be extremely happy.

Some of you can nerd talk about tech all day...I can do the same for music.

I can do a little bit of tech talk but since I cant and dont really know what goes into developing, my tech opinions are strictly from the user point of view.

So, im not huge into thrash metal however, but that doesnt mean that I dont appreciate some of it. I have seen (according to an article on Loudwire, they are considered #1 & 2 best thrash bands), Metallica (Godsmack opened) and Slayer (with Marilyn Manson) live. I can say with absolute certainty - Slayer was the loudest band I have ever seen live, I still cant get over the smoke rings from the (32) Marshall stacks on stage. I got a band for you to check out, your profile says youre from the US so im not sure if this band (which does happen to be Canadian and from not too far from me) is really known around your parts - Protest The Hero. Their newest album 'Volition' is unreal. I will PM you a couple links to my fav tracks from the album. I will be seeing them in a couple monthes.

I had seen nobex technologies inc. Had published a bunch of dedicated streaming apps. Not as high quality as their Android/ios offerings & missing a few features but gets the job done since one of the sites hdrn 80s metal dropped tunein support for this
