Link Side-projects / 2006-08-14 23:27

Wow, two news posts in one day!

It has recently been brought to my attention that the site is plagued with submissions of "bedroom" side-projects, with only a MySpace page or maybe a CD-R limited to 10 copies. The site's primary focus being actual metal bands, it has become increasingly troublesome to deal with other projects barely anyone is interested in. The mod team has hence devised an additional rule for the submission of side-projects: the band in question must have at least one release on a label with worldwide distribution. We hope this will help reduce the number of irrelevant submissions.

N.B. Of course this new rule does not apply to metal bands.
