2012



Allow me to rattle off some Metal Bandcamp numbers:
Since the blog started on September 9, 2011 we have published 553 posts and had a total of 295448 pageviews. There have been 0 ads shown on the blog
At the moment we have ~1000 daily pageviews. The Metal Bandcamp Facebook page have 540 likes, and @metalbandcamp have 335 followers on Twitter
These numbers will grow slow but steady, the way I like it (one will not). And that is all good. There is one number I'm really proud of though, and that is 10. 10 is the number of people of who have (more or less) regularly written reviews for Metal Bandcamp. Check them out on the Contributors page - and if you would like to end up on that page, just send me a mail.
So, huge thanks to Aaron, Natalie, Atanamar, Zamaan, Ulla, Andy, Utmu, Adrian, Sean and Justin. And off course to the guest reviewers Dane Prokofiev, Islander from No Clean Singing, Josh from That's How Kids Die, Brandon from The Sequence of Prime, Eric from Valley of Steel, Phro from Phro Metal, and Ethan from The Autistic Metalhead.
There are many things I look forward to in 2013. More albums on the Profound Lore Bandcamp is one of them (Evoken! Bell Witch!). Seeing a lot of my favorite bands on the Heavy Days In Doomtown II festival is another. I also look forward to the proper release of the Into Darkness Demo on their Bandcamp. That will happen when all the physical copies have sold out, so please people, buy the fuck out of them.

Listen to the demo below, it is top notch Italian Death/Doom. And have a good 2013.

    1. I would argue, that if you look beyond mainstream metal , as you do over The Autistic Metalhead and we do a lot here, then every year is an awesome year for metal.

    2. The things Bread God covers are so obscure that they make Profound Lore look mainstream. It just goes to show that the rabbit hole is never-ending.

    3. Yeah, BreadGoed does dig very deep holes into the underground :)

    1. Oh wow. That'll get me through the first workday of the year. Bell Witch will also be playing their first European show ever at the Heavy Days In Doomtown festival. I'm pretty fucking stokes about that.
