Site Update

Vayne Theories Makes 1,000th Post

As of this post, I have posted 1000 news stories to Metalunderground.com. Formerly known as Negatyve One on here, I've been a site member for nearly three years and a contributor for just over a year. In that time I've learned alot about the metal scene myself, and hopefully have helped passer-bys and regular readers to keep up on their favorite bands' news and expand their metal interests.

In my time working on Metalunderground.com, I've strived to get news straight from the sources and break big news stories. I've recently resumed writing the weekly column "This Week In Metal," which helps readers find out which bands are doing well in the scene. A column that comes straight from the sources of metal, hopefully it will allow the readers to learn what bands are breaking the scene and how well their favorite bands are doing.

I hope to continue bringing metal news to the masses. There is alot of work behind the scenes of the site that alot of people don't understand, but it is a job that I take very seriously. I hope to see TWIM continue to grow, finally break the scene and do my own interviews, including a plan I have to video record them and get them posted here on metalunderground.com where the readers will be able to see me sitting with the bands and hopefully learn alot more about the people behind the music this way. Also I've been working on ideas with good friend and site owner Deathbringer to make the site more user friendly, adding alot of personal features for the readers to increase the enjoyment and experience here at the site. Here is a link to my very first post, and with 1,000 down now hopefully there is many more to come.

you've been overworking lately, and thats good as we need more people than just me and doug bring in the news. keep it coming and don't go away. imagine if everyone on the staff made 5+ posts a day. this would be one crazy hopping news site. just look at what we've done this month, over 30 news posts most of the days.
Doug rocks for creating this site, and you rock for picking up so much slack so Doug can have more time to go and make it better!

keep it up and keep it metal \m/

well, you don't HAVE to read every single article. Some people consider bands to be metal that you might not, and the articles get posted for them. If only the most extreme, unheard of bands were posted on, this site would never have become as huge a success as it has. So if it rattles you that much, I suspect you'll have to look for your news elsewhere, I really don't see the postings getting extremely exclusive anytime in the near future.

Perhaps an idea would be to eventually have news posted in segregated areas, depending on their genres etc, navigatable through the main page which gave a general overview of the latest in all metal news (much as it does now). But I think Deathbringer's got enough on his hands to keep him busy for the next twenty or so years...or part thereof :P

Psythe is correct. There certainly is not "allot sh** that isnt even close to metal being posted on this site". If we post it, it's because it's related to metal somehow even if it's not "true metal". I have some ideas to be able to filter news better, but first I need to get Metal Underground on a new host before I can even think about doing more fancy stuff. \m/

oh, by the by - Parkway Drive's album "Killing With A Smile" should be hitting the shelves in the US soon...I've had the album for like half a year or something, since they're Australian and released the album over here ages ago... Do you want me to put together a review of sorts? I'm busy all week, but I could get on it next week. If you think it's worthwhile. Whatever. Let me know.

I've been killer debating whether or not to respond to this thread, but have decided too. I would like to thank everyone for the kudos, and not to worry, as long as the pits circle I will be around to keep the news updated. Thanks to fellow admins for the acknowledgements, as I know you all dedicate alot of your time, same as I to this website for nothing other then the love of metal, especially to those who came before me, because without them I wouldnt have hung around and had my eventual spot.

To the regular readers, I thank thee for reading the sh** i post. I know at times it can be alot (hopefully per day), and you guys put up with our typos, and so-forth. The dedication is there, and that is what makes this site great. Even you korndogg.

A big ups to the fearless leader who puts up with more sh** from me then my wife does probably, im always on you for this and that, making sure the site prospers as hardcore as it can, thank you for bringing me on-board in the start deathbringer.

I tip my bud select to you guys keep metal alive \m/.

personally, I don't think MCR are metal, nor have much at all to do with metal. I don't remember ever having posted any news on the band, either. So if you want someone to defend them, why not try somebody who DOES like them, and DOES think they are metal? Wouldn't that be smart? Ass...

MCR are "metal" for kids who don't listen to metal.

It's all relative.

Metal for me might be Opeth but metal for John-boy may be Van Halen or Motley Crue.

MCR (or HIM, Panic! at the Disco etc) is metal/rock for people who are also blasting 50 Cent and Christina Aguilera.

The people who listen to radio and Mtv never dig deeper for music beyond what the popular media forces down their throats and their perception of music will always be stunted by that.
