There's lots of great metal on Bandcamp. Everything from upcoming bands to established metal record labels. Metal Bandcamp is basically a bunch of friends/friendly people recommending some of the good stuff out there. We will also cover updates to existing band pages and new albums posted to label Bandcamps. In general, you can expect 2-3 posts per week, though release day reviews will mess up the schedule now and then.

Unlike most metal blogs we won't post about albums that haven't been released yet - and of course the album has to available on Bandcamp. If you're interested in what you're reading about and what you're hearing, you can buy (or download) it right then--no waiting for far-off release dates, and no annoyance over different release dates for physical product in different parts of the world.

Metal Bandcamp is not affiliated with Bandcamp itself in any way, though they certainly are aware of our existence, and...

We do have a special place in our black, stone hearts for death metal.
It is true

A big thank you goes to to Richard Hutton for creating the Metal Bandcamp logo and banner graphics. Check out his dark ambient/drone project Aeon-Lost.

And finally, if you're curious about how many pageviews we get, here's a spreadsheet with all the numbers.

  3. I love this site just as much as I love metal and freedom! Now, if you don't mind, would you please put my blog in your blogroll? http://gema-logam.blogspot.com/

  4. Hi guys, I sent you an email related to a possible collaboration. Kindly get back to me as soon as you can, as I have sent you that email like two or three weeks ago even.

  5. Your search engine is pathetic. All sorts of acts are here and do not pull up in your search. It's the stupidest shit ever!? If Bandcamp is about band exposure, this search is truly lame! Bands like Megatherium don't even show up, but THERE THEY are in Bandcamp if you are a detective!

  6. This is a great website! Very helpful for bands as well as fans! Any chance of getting my band "Held In Scorn" on here? Our 10 song album is available free on Bandcamp. www.weareheldinscorn.bandcamp.com Sorry I didn't see a contact link or else I would have sent in the inquiry that way. Thanks everyone!
