Yes. Just include a link to the original, and add some data on your profile so that we can check the facts and don't end up banning you for suspected plagiarism.

Which site are we talking about?

An addendum at the bottom is the normal practice.

Yes, like this: http://www.metal-archives.com/reviews/G ... alAttorney

originally written for http://fullmetalattorney.blogspot.com/

I'd personally capitalize and parenthesize the addendum, just to make it look neat, but it's up to you.

Ok, here's the deal. I recently opened a music blog but it happens to be in spanish. Is it ok if I post a translation of a metal review originaly posted in said blog with the required URL as an addendum?

I would assume that would be okay, though if you're not fluent in English I would suggest that you get a person who knows the language well to look over your translation to proofread it.
