Capitalism and downloading.

Why not just download and see for yourself? This may be because of my incredibly bad experiences with zines recommending utter shit, perhaps you would care to share a couple of good ones?


The problem: 10,000 bands to download.

With good reviewers: cut down to 10 or 15.

Most of us aren't so fascinated by this we want to dedicate our lives to it.

Regarding magazines, I don't know of any. They may be out there, but last time I looked, I saw plenty of aesthetics and zero substance.

The reviews on Metal-archives get better all the time. Be selective with the reviewer.  You can usually tell when you read the review if they have the facilities to judge metal correctly.  Other then that, anus is the only place I read album reviews.  


Agreed. This is pretty much what I have been doing and it seems to be working ok so far. :)

But even when you cut it down to 10 or 15 I would prefer to download and see for my self before rushing off and buying it. I of course didn't mean to download every single album within the scope of being "metal".
