Repulsion isn't listed on the main page.

EDIT: Only in Firefox. Also "Ludicrous: Letters to the site." doesn't show up because it's under the black border like Repulsion.

Absurd's Werewolfthron has no cover image and lacks meta-data, as well as has a mp3 image as "Length"...

Something trivial about the forums that I feel like pointing out ----> the emoticon with the sunglasses gets shown when one types an "8" followed by a ")" This more often leads to people typing "(this album is from 1988)" then to people actually wanting to depict an emoticon wearing sunglasses. It can be fixed by simply using the "Check this if you'll be adding code (or don't like smileys)" function when one makes a post. But maybe the shortcut for the emoticon can simply be changed? It would save a lot of "errors" in the audiophile forum...  8)

Yes, there are sometimes several dates for albums, I reported most of these last year during the implementation of the new design. Sometimes it's the copyright that's different from the rest, which could perhaps mean the release date or the version of the album presented is different from the year of creation or first release ; but when there is conflict between the anchor and article, or even three different dates for the anchor, article and copyright, there's definitely a problem !  :)

A friend and I were discussing possible changes to the site to make it easier to navigate.

1.

It might be good if we had some kind of progressive interface to show people where they are in the DLA, because it's a maze. Something like:

Metal : Editorials > Why Black Metal is Dead Like Christ

2. Would it kill us to have a band page with links to separate album pages for each review?

3. Shouldn't there be a better interface, like a news blog, on http://www.anus.com/metal ?

This is an important point. My personal experience with the DLA / ANUS started when I stumbled upon a DLA review page because the site was often very well ranked in search engine results (among the top 5). At that moment I could not get the depth of the site, and so just left the page once I read what I wanted to know. It is only after several similar findings that I started to slowly "explore" the site, and then discovered many other great things. Many sections were not immediately visible, or even almost completely hidden, so it took me a very long time to actually be aware of the whole ANUS and DLA sections and pages. An intuitive navigation system always helps, and also increases the number of visitors of the pages.

You mean as in http://www.anus.com/zine/music/ ? Not a bad idea, but SRP will probably have to write longer introductions to the bands, to really take advantage of that system. Or maybe not, I don't know.

I remember when the interface had a sort of "latest Metal reviews" news boxes right in the middle of the page, for example for Therion and Fireaxe (I remember these in particular because they remained there for a long time). I liked that, and think it would be a good idea to bring that back. Were you thinking of other various kinds of news items as well, for example "Chuck Died Of AIDS - Death frontman just passed away last night" or "Extreme Texas Metal Festival - Interview with Averse Sefira" ?

On some of these reviews, the bands would benefit from short biographies, so maybe having the index page be a list of links is positive.

Links could go to:

* Album reviews
* Biographies
* Official band site
* MP3s
* Interviews

Just like on Abraxas.

Not to be too anal here, just letting you know about two typos in the Sammath tracklist.

First one being that the word "slagvefd" in track1 should actually be "slagveld",  and "strijdbijf" in track7 needs to be "strijdbijl".

I still think the site's size/resolution isn't great. It affects the presentation whether or not it fits properly in your browser. Compare it to the Radio NIHIL page or even the ANUS homepage.
