New Mayhem EP, "Atavistic Black Disorder / Kommando", to be released on the 9th of July

Norwegian pioneers Mayhem have just announced that they are scheduled to release a new EP on the 9th of July through Century Media Records.

The new release will be split into two halves, with the first half featuring three songs originally from the "Daemon" recording sessions, and the second half featuring four covers of some punk classics.

We're releasing this essentially as a split EP, to highlight the duality of the featured material, and with dual cover artwork to accommodate, courtesy of Daniele Valeriani.

Here is a closer look at the aforementioned artwork by Daniele ... [»]

Site Update 0.27: User Accounts, User Reviews, Forum & More...

So, a lot of changes just went live on the site, and while they are too numerous to list in their entirety, I will touch briefly on the most important ones:

User accounts

You can now register an account on the site. Many of the site's features will require you to be logged in, including posting comments. Gone are the days of anonymous shitposting. User accounts come with all the basic functionality you would expect from your average website/forum, although a lot of it is "old school" in nature. A valid e-mail address is required for activating your account.

There are a few ... [»]

A few graphic changes.

A number of new features and quality of life improvements that should make the site easier to use, both on desktop and mobile.

Posted by Imperator on 17th April, 2020 @ 00:00 UTC

Minor changes, including support for multiple bands with the same name from the same country.

New Poll Regarding Mobile Usability

For any mobile users, I've just added a new poll to the site (bottom right on any news page) to gauge how well the site is doing so far on your mobile devices.

If it turns out to be fairly useless on mobile I will either make a separate mobile version or most likely just make it more mobile friendly. In the not-so-immediate future.

Also, big thanks to everyone who submitted a bug report on April 1st. [»]


50,000 Albums

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

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 ... [»]
