Site Update

Attention Old-School Metalunderground.com Members: Login Now

I know there are a lot of you who have been members here on Metalunderground.com for a long time. Many of you tire of signing in for whatever reason. As we enter our ninth year, I have some new things in store and want to recognize those of you who have been active on Metalunderground.com the longest. So I encourage everyone with a user account to log in at least once in by the end of February 2010 so that we can see that you are still active. There might be something in it for you if you've been a registered member long enough and are still active on Metalunderground.com.

To encourage you a little more and show our appreciation of your dedication, I'm going to give the longest standing member who has logged in to Metalunderground.com in 2010 (before the end of February) a free limited edition Metalunderground.com t-shirt and sticker pack. The next 5 runner ups will also get a sticker pack.

Even if you don't win one of those prizes, I've got some ideas for acknowledging our long-time readers and participants. So don't delay - get logged in now and show us you're still around and active!

What's Next?

Please share this article if you found it interesting.

Have you heard the band 11:11 You've Been Warned?
Great album by band that sounds like a mixture of Tesament, Slayer and Priest. Alot of songs covering 2012 and the end in a very energetic way. My favorite songs are the "The Fire Burns" and "I Am The Future"

I can't even recall the first time I visited this site. It's probably been a good 6-7 years ago now and I haven't stopped coming back. Although, for the longest time, even though I posted regularly as coldiem, I never bothered to create an actual account.

I think I finally signed up when the avatar business started up a while back. I still read the site almost every day but I rarely sign in because I have no interest in taking part in the chat threads anymore.

Anyway, I'm just posting to show my support. MetalUnderground has changed a lot over the years, but always seemed to retain what felt familiar about the site.

My thanks to deathbringer and everyone else's hard work over the years. Keep it up and keep it metal!

Hey BG, yeah, Zack is one of the oldest because he was signed up as an admin before the public registration was opened. So he's not qualified, since he's a staffer (and already has a shirt).

You know, I have been planning to sell some shirts for a long time, but need to get the ecommerce crap set up. It's coming soon! Really...

DB: Cafe press works out pretty well and it's not that hard to set up. It allows multiple logos/immages to be available on just about anything you want to put it on. Then all you'd need to do is make a merch button available to us. I'd wear it religiously if I had one.

DB: Our biggest selling merch is CD's. After that black T-shirts (long and short sleeve are top 2, but the [color varies] baby dolls for the ladies is up there too), Beer mugs, and stickers. Suprizingly enough, we are also starting to sell a lot of thongs (which I hope to someday autograph). lol. We also sell a lot of posters but that's a band thing i think. Buttons are kind of meh to me tbh, because they're seldomly well done and even when they are done well it's not very noticable (like the hat/lapel buttons). Why don't you start a favorite MU merch thread in the forum and get everyone's take on it?

Why stop at shirts or buttons? Beer mugs, shot glasses, bumperstickers, smoke shop accesories. And if you want to really trademark this site with viseable merch, skateboards, cue sticks and or dart boards, life size flags or banners baseball hats, sex wax, sneakers, those blow up plastic lounge chairs like those beer ads give away during the superbowl, and last but not least authentic halloween masks that look like the one and only deathbringer.
