Hi, how can I link MP3 files from the bands demo pages?
I just found a tape with rare stuff here. :-)

Erm, what exactly are you asking? Is it about linking proof in a band submission or are you thinking about downloading MP3 files from the Metal Archives?

No, I want to show MP3 links on each band demo-tape page. For example, I just converted to MP3 my former band demo-tape from 1988 (Nightmare, "Raising from Holocaust") and would like to tell people where they can download it, on the Encyclopaedia demo/band page.

You can put the link in the notes for the release, or just under the "Related Links". Of course, they must all be band-sanctioned and official links, and remember that the site uses regular HTML, not BBCode, like on the forum:

<a href="URL" target="_blank">DISPLAYED_TEXT</a>

Just use that to make a hyperlink. :p Replace URL and DISPLAYED_TEXT with the appropriate values.

Hey, thanks for the answers, but the notes and related info are about the *band*, right? Not about the *release*? For example:

http://www.metal-archives.com/albums/Ni ... _Holocaust

Is not possible to put the links there, right? Maybe I can write a review and put the links on it, or just put the download links on the band page. Just need to make sure what is the correct behaviour here. :-)

There are additional notes for both the band and the releases. Here's where you can add additional notes for the "Raising from Holocaust" demo: http://www.metal-archives.com/release/edit/id/173668

Write some kind of description for the link and apply Alhadis' link example and you should be fine. And since your rank is Metal Newbie, you can add missing fields, but can't edit existing ones, so if you don't get it right at first just make a report about it.

Hey, thanks, just edit it, please take a look.
I'll put the other demo and other ones I have here from bands from my region.

Links for tracks 3 and 4 were bit messed, I fixed them... So, all of the other ones are sanctioned by the bands too?

Yeah, sorry, I just realized, just edited my message too... The links for the other bands are sanctioned too?

Yes, you can be sure. They are really happy I just converted all the old demos last week.
