Frequently Asked Questions about Metal Countdown
WHAT  IS  METAL  COUNTDOWN?
Metal Countdown is a Christian Metal-Chart on local Radio in Stockholm, Sweden.
WHERE  CAN  I  HEAR  METAL  COUNTDOWN?
We send our programs 2,5 hours a week on the south side of Stockholm, the capitol of Sweden. So if you live in the south side of Stockholm you should be able to hear us. We air Tuesdays between 20:00 - 22:30 (8.00 - 10:30 pm) at frequency 98,5 Mhz.
If you have problems to listen to the programs you can check that "Buffer at least 60s before playing" is marked in the RealAudio preferences. (It's located under view - preferences - connection)
WHAT  DO  I  NEED  TO  LISTEN?
All you need to listen to our programs is a RealAudio player. You can get one for free called Real Audio Player Basic at www.real.com (You might need to search for it a little though since RealAudio seems to hide their free player so people buy the plus version instead.)
CAN  I  REQUEST  TUNES?
Yeah, of course, just tell us which christian metal tunes you want to hear and we'll try to play them ASAP.
IS  IT  A  PROFIT  RADIO  STATION?
No we are totally nonprofit and don't get a cent for our work with our programs which we do on our sparetime.
ARE  YOU  ACCEPTING  DEMOS,  CD'S  ETC?
Yeah we do! We would love to hear from you if you play some kind of Christian Hardrock/Metal (melodic/heavy/speed/thrash/doom/unblack/death etc). Just send in you demos and cds to us and we will review it and spread the news about your band here in Sweden. Our adress is as follows...
If you send two copies we can gladly give away the extra copy to one of our listeners.
Then we also want to spread the news about all
the awesome Christian Metal bands that are out there, so more people come to know them
and start to listen to them. So many people thinks that all Christian music sounds lame or wimpy, but we want to show people that there are many good and talented Christian Metal bands out there, bands that you don't wanna miss! That's why we try to provide you with some of the very best tunes in Christian Metal - both past and present. Our goal musically is simply to be the Ultimate Christian Metal Chart with the very best in Christian Metal.
