The site has see some steady growth over the last year so it's still suprising that we're not getting more direct contacts from metal bands. Most of our inbox is filled with emails from indie rock bands, some on the fringe of what we cover, some not even close. But recently we received a request for musicians from a new local metal band called AMPORA. They are currently in the studio completing a 4 track demo and looking to fill out their lineup with a guitarist and drummer. Check out the two tunes they've posted so far, and contact them through MySpace if you're interested. One of our contributors, Charlie Steffens, hears a bit of SHADOWS FALL in a song.
And if anyone knows a place other than Craigslist to find metal musicians, let us know.
