FINALLY! Now the rest of the world is just catching on to what we all figured out ages ago.

Metalunderground is the sh**, and I didnt even have to look at the photo gallery to know that.

Congrats to everyone who made this possible, and most of all, to me, for creating this site and letting Deathbringer get away with claiming to be the designer. I couldnt have done without me.

(No seriously, three cheers for DB and the staff. I would buy everyone a round, but I think we all know several reasons why thats impossible. ;D)

congrats DB and MU community. But methinks how long will MetalUnderground STAY underground with such recognition? Will we then have to come to a site called MetalAwesomeLand in the near future? Only time will tell.

Joel, while I've been to MetalStorm. I gotta say that while they have the most organization. MU has a tighter-knit group of people. All of us on MU are like a small family. Its weird.
