I wasn't clear before, but we've actually been trying to change the name for over two years now. Lauryn tried to change the name back in May 2012 and management wouldn't approve it because the show had "always been We're Not Gonna Take It." Yes, she pointed out the logical fallacy and how hard it wo...

It was created in 1999 or 2000. The name was apparently sort of an inside joke, because most people at the station at the time hated metal and thought it shouldn't belong on a college radio station, so the dudes who created it were rightfully fed up and named the show "We're Not Gonna Take it." I'd ...

Nah, those guys couldn't give less of a shit about us. We just got new management is all. Thanks, I'm glad you like it! I always referred to the show as "the metal show" just to avoid saying "We're Not Gonna Take It." :P Though I suppose at the time the show was created, the name did make sense.

Wow I must be so far removed because I haven't heard of most of those bands. I haven't lived in Atlanta (or Georgia for that matter) in almost 3 years and just really haven't been keeping up I guess. Too focused on work and stuff. I hosted this show from late 2005 to mid-2009 when it was still 10-m...

I don't know if the takeover will still happen, but the show's not going anywhere regardless. I'll be going on from 12-1 for the rest of the summer.

also, I'll be playing some Skáphe and Emptiness this week if anyone's interested.

Nah, only Lauryn's graduating. I'm still doing 1-2, and AJ's got 12-1. Though maybe since it's the summer and I'm taking over manic compression, which is 10-midnight on mondays, we'll switch timeslots.

as for your question about GPB.. I don't know. :/ we'll see...

new co-host

hey guys, I don't know if anybody here listens to this show, but in any case I thought I should say hi. My name's ben, and I am the newest co-host on WNGTI. I do the 1-2am slot most weeks, with AJ doing the midnight-1am (Lauryn does a midnight-2am set every few weeks). Gimme a call or whatever and l...

I saw this tour in Athens the night after on account of Chelsea Wolfe/true Widow that same night. Woe were awesome. I haven't enjoyed much black metal live aside from WITTR but they were great. I wish they had played more from Quietly, Undramatically though. Even something from A Spell For The Death...

http://www.invisibleoranges.com/2013/08/stream-anicon-demo-mmxiii/ I know most of you guys are really into black metal so I gotta ask, what do you guys make of this? Personally, I'm really impressed by it, but I also haven't really sat down and made the time of day for a new black metal release in a...

One Will Burn (Joy Division cover band) @ 529 July 12

I have been obsessed with Joy Division for the past year so I'm intrigued by this but I naturally have concerns over 'cover bands' so we'll see... Live videos sounded pretty good, though.

It's also some clever wording - you see that this band you kinda like called Argus is playing but it's a five-band bill with a bunch of bands you've never heard of, you'll probably groan and roll your eyes, and say to yourself "I'll just show up at the last moment" or you may even say "12 bucks to s...
