Metal Underground.com Celebrates Four Years Of Metal News
It's been four years since Metal Underground.com went live and began delivering heavy metal news to anyone who stumbled across the site (click here for the very first posts). Developed in the final days of my single life, I launched the site in test mode before departing for my wedding - perhaps as a way to commit myself to moving forward with the site upon my return; I don't remember because married years seem twice as long as single years ;-).
Building a site and community is quite an effort - from actual coding and database design to search engine placement to getting your URL out there and links back to the site, and finally getting readers to come back often by keeping the content up to date. While delivering non-stop metal news the entire time, I've been slowly but steadily making improvements to the metalunderground.com.
Metal Underground.com would not be where it is today without its dedicated staff of contributors. I've seen staff members come and go, but in the past year or so, we've really had a stable core of dedicated contributors serving up loads of good metal news, interviews and show reports on a daily basis. In that time, due to the diligence of these people, Metal Underground.com's audience and sense of community has grown tremendously. I want to publicly thank all of those contributors (past and present) and all of the metalunderground.com readers out there who have made this a fun and worthwhile "hobby" for all of us who enjoy working on it and reading it.
As the metal scene regains its strength in the passing of nu-metal, we're even more enthusiastic about bringing metal news and reports in the years to come. Keep visiting for your daily does of metal news and stay tuned for some more new features that are on the way.
KEEP METAL ALIVE! \m/
