People occasionally write in and ask us if there's any way they can assist our endeavor to promote
reckless sodomy quality death/black metal. While there are many ways, what we invariably ask is: "How committed are you?"
The response we receive often consists of pledges towards strong commitment, shortly before never hearing from that person again. It is for this reason that we are often skeptical of such offers, even though we don't want to be.
What we are looking for are:
People who are reliable (ie, do not drop out after a couple weeks, nor repeatedly use the excuse of "things came up"). While things do occasionally come up, it does not take that much effort to spend 30-60 minutes a week contributing to the site.
What you would be doing:
Writing a weekly article. This could take the form of a news article, a review, or anything conceivably related to the genre. What you write is more or less up to you. Additionally, due to our position, we often are sent promotional materials for review, so this can be utilized as a source of material.
While we appreciate those who send in the occasional piece, at this time we are explicitly looking for a regular commitment.
Why we are doing this:
In the near future, deathmetal.org will be undergoing some re-organization and shift of purpose. Those who have been with us for a long time are shifting their attention to new frontiers, and we need competent contributors to keep up with the quantity and quality of material the site has historically produced.
Expect more on this shortly.
