I've started a metal blog about all the random thoughts that revolve around the metal lifestyle. I review albums. I make fun of album covers. I (try to) profile musicians. I report about live shows. I talk about pointy guitars and basses. I make suggestions for under-appreciated bands. I share stupid links and videos. It might be worth your five seconds.

Check it out. Or don't.

I meant to say that I also try to focus on exploring the Asian metal scene. I feel like it's criminally underrated. I'd like to try and spread the word about the numerous really good bands from that general area.

I've also received requests from a few bands who would like an album review and some easy publicity. I can proudly say that if your band would like a review of anything (full-lengths, EPs, demos, etc.), I will gladly accept 100% of the requests. I always enjoy hearing new things.

If you're in a band and looking for a site to give you a review to get the word out, visit [url]raisethyhorns.blogspot.com[/url] or email at raisethyhorns@gmail.com. I haven't turned anyone down yet. Also, I've found some pretty killer bands. I'll listen to and review all styles of metal. The blog gets about 80 hits per day from locations all around the world. It's worth your time if your in a band looking for some good promotion.

Cool shit man. Keep up the cool work. It's neat to someone exposing some of the more comedic aspects of our much-loved genre

It must be Thanksgiving because I've put some more Turkey on the table. (Wow, that was lame.) Anyways, here's a review of an excellent, excellent death metal band from Turkey called Thrown to the Sun. Check it out:

My band is recording an EP in a week or two, once it's completely finished I'll get it to you for a review. Your blog looks good, I enjoyed what I saw. Anywho, we're called Death Inquisition and we play thrash. www.facebook.com/deathinquisition

If you're into the lighter, funnier side of metal (and it's easy to be), here are some recurring comedic features that you'll find on RTH:

Say Cheese - Silly and potentially embarrassing photos of bands and their members that ripe for ridicule.
Logo Disasters - Ridiculous, lame, or completely unreadable band logos from the wonderful world of metal.
Cover Art Captions - Telling the truth about what's really going on on those silly album covers. Or at least what we think. Maybe
