50,000 Albums

Posted by Imperator on 26th November, 2019 @ 00:00 UTC

Probably the first real milestone achieved.

We recently surpassed the 50,000 album mark (well... 50,000 albums, EPs, demos, compilations, promos, and the odd rehearsal, live recording and single that got dragged into the mix) bringing the total number of releases featured on the site to 50,117 at the time of writing this.

That's quite a step up from the 100 albums originally featured when the site was first launched over 8 years ago. We've come a long way since then, so here's to another 50,000! If my estimates are correct, we'll reach that milestone in about 2031.

Of course, this couldn't have been achieved without you, the contributors, and your dedication in helping us to stay up to date, "inactive" as the site is, so thanks once again to all of you for your time and effort.

If you're interested in how all these 50,000+ releases are grouped and divided, check out the database statistics page for some mildly interesting maps, graphs and charts.

Stay tuned.

I got into black metal 2 years ago and this website has helped me find some great bands I wouldn't have found otherwise. Thank you guys, I look forward to future updates.

This site gave me 600 of my best black metal albums. Including Rain upon the impure as my best and also rated here as the best.
