One last patch before we switch gears and focus more on site content.
This update brings improved band biography presentation, along with the usual bug fixes. Seriously where do they keep coming from.
If you're a BBMA regular and use Google Chrome as your main browser, you will be interested in a new plugin or "extension" available for Google Chrome called "Search on Bestblackmetalalbums.com", which has been developed by Chrysthian Chrisley.
Check it out here.
As you can see, the extension adds a new option to the right-click menu whenever you have any text selected in Chrome, and doing a search will automatically open a new tab with the search results already loaded and ordered by score. How awesome is that?

We've made some minor adjustments to the site, and added a couple of new features. There is now a News Archive which is self-explanatory, and there's also a Help & FAQ section which should be even more self-explanatory.
In addition to this, there have been a host of other minor changes across the site which are too numerous and unimportant to mention, but collectively they should greatly improve user experience. We've also updated the design slightly in order to make sure that the design elements are consistent and aesthetically pleasing across the entire site. As always, if you detect any ... [»]
Today marks one year since we last posted anything in our news section (which as it happens is nothing more than a timely coincidence). Despite the site's news section being left in a state of complete abandon for the last year due to time constraints and life in general, we have still been working occasionally on the site behind the scenes, adding new albums here and there, optimizing this and that, and doing general site maintenance, although most of our limited time has been spent sorting through all the album contributions which our users have been submitting, and preparing the ...

UPDATE 29/05/2013: We are proud to announce that BestBlackMetalAlbums.com will be featured on the next 10 editions of "War Metal", a weekly radio show which is hosted by Matheus H. Guerra on Dark Radio Brazil, starting this Thursday, May 30th. This differs greatly from our original announcement on Sunday, where we announced that the site would only be featured on one show.

The "War Metal" show goes live every Thursday at 21:00 BRT (every Friday at 2:00 CEST), and is dedicated almost exclusively to the world of Black Metal. Each week's show is also repeated on the Sunday at 11:00 BRT ... [»]
