Browse & play embedded tracks from Angry Metal Guy music reviews

Project description

Angry Metal Guy Player

Latest version Tests status Coverage Lines of code Supported Python versions License

Angry Metal Guy Player (AMG Player) is a Python multi platform console tool to automatically play or download tracks from Angry Metal Guy reviews.

I created this because:

  • I like Angry Metal Guy, and discovered great music (both metal and totally non-metal) thanks to their reviews
  • I often disagree with their ratings (in fact I disagree more often than I agree), both for overrating and underrating
  • Even when I disagree, I like reading their reviews
  • I want to listen to the music before I read the review, to avoid getting influenced
  • To be efficient, I want to listen to the tracks like a radio, and read the review to learn more only when I like something


  • Can work either in interactive mode (manually select tracks) or totally automatic (play new tracks like a radio)
  • Supports embedded tracks from: YouTube, Bandcamp, SoundCloud, ReverbNation
  • Plays YouTube video if available, or generates a video on the fly with the cover image + audio track(s) (requires FFmpeg)
  • Can download tracks (with embedded album art) to play later
