Metal Underground.com Celebrates Seven Years Of Supporting Metal

Where do the years go? Metalunderground.com is yet another year older. We have now been supporting metal and the underground for over seven years. I started Metalunderground.com back in 2001. I had been working on it since 2000 and launched a beta version before embarking on a trip overseas to get married. Upon my return in mid-April, I launched the site officially and began posting news and continuing development.

Each year I've been amazed by the growth of the site and our readership, especially in light of the fact that this is not my full time job and there's so much more I want to do with the site, both in terms of features and promotion. A lot of people have helped Metalunderground.com grow to the point it's at today, but I have to say that this year we absolutely have the best, most well-rounded staff ever, and I am truly excited to see where we're headed in the coming years.

In the past year:

  • The site moved to a new web host and server

  • The comment spam issue was resolved (it only takes me two minutes a day to delete all the spam and you don't have to see it at all)

  • We've improved the amount and stability of our news coverage

  • We've got more quality interviews with bands

  • We've added a couple more photographers and

  • We are finally hitting our stride with the reviews section with the addition of numerous quality writers and reviewers, several from our very own community.

Since the site's inception, we've posted over 35,000 news posts and covered more than 6,000 bands that are in our database. We currently serve well over 500,000 page views per month to over 200,000 visitors.

Many thanks to all of our contributors and all of our readers, especially those who have made Metalunderground.com their primary place to get their metal news and those who contribute to civilized discussions on a regular basis. In addition, I want to thank all of the bands, labels and PR folks who have supported us over the years and the chaotic times when we were stretched thin.

Spread the word and let's make the next seven years even better!

What's Next?

I went to school on my 7th bday! That was the only thing I hated about being an October baby! I remember my Reno family being upset because they never got to celebrate my bday with me because my Mom, Dad and Sis lived in Oregon. So one time on a summer visit they threw me a surprize bday party in August! I go into my Aunt and Uncles house and they screamed "SURPRIZE" and I was like "wait, what did I miss? Whos bday is it?" They told me it was mine and why it was in August. One of the niceist things my Reno family ever did for me. Got a sweet Whinnie the Pooh diary that later housed the poems I did not want my parents to read as they were a tad on the black metal side.

Havn't seen the new TMNT movie either, apparently it's not too bad. Rambo, on the other hand, was a godawful movie. Unless you were watching it for the splatter, in which case it was indeed something of a festival. Probably the most ridiculous movie I've ever seen. Including Ultra-Violet.

Which Turtle was the one with the purple and the staff? Easily the best of them!

Transformers was the sh**. The old one was good if you just liked the idea of giant robots fighting. The new one is cool no matter what you like, it's just awesome.
TMNT was much better than i expected actually, I liked it personally. The cartoon was still waaaaay more f***in badass though (kinda odd to say that about a cartoon aimed at 8-year olds, but I don't care, it was f***in badass!) All they needed was for them to actually STAB the ninja's once in a while, y'know? Then the show would have been f***in the badassf***inthesh**tastic!

Who was The Rat King? Man, I enjoyed the show, but never watched it that much, lol. Baxter Stockman? That dude with the hockey mask was a goddamn psycho!

CTJJ, if it makes you feel any better I have a black eye. My Dimmu shirt is missing and thought it might be in my ol mans clean laundry. So when I had him look (due to the fact that he has a ton of his riffles and swords in his side of the closet mixed in with his clothing), he in my opinion did not look very hard. So I got tenaciouse and decided I would look myself. I was going through and doing some organizeing and the pomel of his sword flew out of no where and smacked me in the right side on my cheek bone! Needless to say over night blood began to pool in the bags of my eye! My ol man warned me too, but did I listen? No and damn did I learn that was stupid! Still no Dimmu shirt to add insult to injury. I laughed about it though, I am a metaller woman not emo!

Oz - the rat king is from the nutcracker, even though it's a ballet, that one is still music related. besides, i said that MANY of the bad guys were music related not ALL of them.

lol, yeah, but if there was one, people would comment on the actual stories less, i guess. besides, what with msn, yahoo, AOL (or whatever that one is), facebook chat now, i mean, do we really need another place to converse?

The news is irresitable to talk about. Atleast to me, but a chat thread would make the news threads more about the news at hand because we would have an off topic thread to post in. Just my opinion/suggestion I am throwing out there that I think would be a cool thing to have on MU.

Fair enough. I didn't mean to be completely negative towards the idea, it could be great. Just not sure if it'd work, or benefit the site necessarily. Hard to be sure until it's been tried and tested, I guess, hahah.

I think the easiest way to go would be to just have an "article" posted. Then its just like the news articles and would be easy for phone and comp users to just post at our leisure. When they close just make a new one. I hope that makes sence hahaha!

sorry kalis about your grandfather having a heart attack, all i can do is hope for the best, all you can really do kalis, is just love him, stay by him, confort him, cause these times are scary, emotional, despressing, and if he does pass, this the soul would like to go in peace, knowing it was loved, no one knows what death holds, so these times are scary, anyways hope your grandfather make a full recover, just take care of him the best you can, hope, or pray, that he recovers, because, respecting or loving someone, is the best thing you can do, and is the most you can give

p.s. hope everything turns out ok, with your grandfather, just hold your head high and hope for the best
