New York-based "Metal Injection" has always been on the cutting edge of new media. When the show started three years ago, producers saw opportunity on the Internet to reach a worldwide audience and became one of the firsts to fully stream a half-hour show online. The shows would constantly feature interviews with up-and-coming bands (THE RED CHORD, A LIFE ONCE LOST, FINNTROLL, BEHEMOTH, DESPISED ICON) as well as more established names (SLIPKNOT, LAMB OF GOD, KILLSWITCH ENGAGE, SOULFLY, UNEARTH) in a comfortable environment being themselves, often showing the audience a different side of backstage life.
Fast forward three years later with technology online improving, "Metal Injection" has announced the launch of "Overdose": the first free 24/7 on-demand broadband network for extreme music. The site features plenty of channels to browse through, including the "Bootleg Series" which features live footage of bands, and the "Exclusives", which gives you backstage access like nowhere else, showing you everything you don't see that happens backstage as guided by the musicians who live it.
To kick everything off with a bang, this week is Sounds Of The Underground week on the network, which will feature new clips daily from all the bands on the tour, including AS I LAY DYING, CANNIBAL CORPSE, IN FLAMES, GWAR, TRIVIUM, THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, BEHEMOTH, HORSE THE BAND and much more. In the coming weeks, "Metal Injection" will have tons of content from behind the scenes at Ozzfest 2006 as well as the only place for pro-shot live footage of the 2006 Maryland Deathfest.
