I've been submitting news about metal and hardcore bands to the site for quite a while. Some of it gets posted while much of the less-mainstream stories go unnoticed, so this is ideal. I also began writing reviews
not too long ago, so consider this the beginning of my campaign for a spot on the staff! While that will likely never happen, I actually enjoyed writing this up, so let me know what you think.
Also note that the term metal is being used in a broad sense to cover "heavy" music, giving me an excuse to also talk about hardcore and the like.
