Hey there! Allow me to introduce myself.....

Hello fellow music lovers! I would like to welcome you all to my blog. This is something I decided to start for a couple different reasons. One, I don't have much of a life, and I was in desperate need of a hobby. What better than to start a blog about something you love?! Two, there are countless bands out there who are all amazing, talented musicians who deserve the chance to be heard by the masses. I figure, why can't I be a middle (wo)man of sorts, and bring those bands to you every week or two. I have friends in bands, and I see how hard they work to try to get their music heard. The more I can do to help them, and bands in a similar situation, the better. I am simply a music fan and supporter who believes there are bands out there that you have not heard, and should. Hell, bands I haven't heard of, but will be damn glad I know them now. I am really looking forward to this experience, and discovering so many amazing bands with you!

The plan, as of now, is to feature a rock or metal band every week or two. Whether it be an unsigned local band, or a band signed to a minor label. I am asking that bands who wish to be spotlighted, to send me an email through here, or the FB page for the blog, with the band name, one or two MP3 files of songs you would like featured, Facebook page link and other other sites you use to get your music out there. I will then email bands asking for bio information, show dates, etc. I'll put your band's links and sites at the bottom of your band's post for people who want to hear/learn more. All bands will be reviewed and must meet certain criteria (don't worry, simple stuff like having a decent recording, playing shows, etc. General band activity is necessary). To make all this as fair as I could come up with, I will write each band down on a piece of paper and draw a band randomly to be featured.

Posts will consist of
  • A song or YouTube video
  • Information about the band (location, member bios, general info)
  • Upcoming show dates
  • Any other info the band may want mentioned
  • I would eventually like to post a Q and A.
More may be added as time goes on

So there's a quick run down of what to expect from this blog, and how bands can be a part of it. I hope you enjoy the coming posts! Feedback is always welcome, as long as it's not "Fuck Off". :)
