"Riot FM... Music that doesn't suck!"

We play a mix of Death, Doom, Progressive and Thrash Metal along with some Punk.

We also highlight some Classic Hard Rock.

All in all, just great music from the Legends to the Latest in a mix of genres that work together.

It's music that doesn't suck, and it's the stuff that other FM stations are too afraid to play!
