Interzone / Re: Are downloadable MP3s still relevant?
« on: October 05, 2013, 02:18:32 PM »
It's the hunt for mp3s that is an inconvenience. Finding a download that hasn't been deleted, isn't in a useless format like .wma, isn't password protected, isn't missing files, isn't a low bitrate, isn't hosted on a Russian site, etc. is a pain in the ass.  Also, transferring mp3s between various devices is a tedious process

With spotify I just type in what a want to listen to and it streams instantly.

I think the audiofile eliminates "the hunt" for getting the MP3s for the essential metal releases. And as for transferring between devices, I always make sure I use devices that don't have any in-built software so it's as easy as copy and paste. You can then easily throw them on friend's hard drives too.

If alternatives become much superior then we can just link the audiofile threads to whatever the alternative is instead. Also, some people are going to want the MP3s so they can put it on their portable players. My 4shared account tells me the amount of downloads occur and there is some activity. Some of these albums aren't on youtube as well.

But if the full album is on youtube then shall we add it as an additional link for those who'd rather not bother with the MP3s?

The Doors MP3s



"Psychedelic apocalyptic rock band that intruded on the summer of love with a momentary burst of realism, then collapsed into their own angst and lack of forward direction."

Unfortunately, I can't use SendItz -- it doesn't work from here.

I find SendItz doesn't work if I'm uploading anything else at the same time. If that's not it then I have no idea what's going wrong there.

I'd appreciate it if you'd put the price in there, since many of these CDs are $3-$5 and that shows how easy, cheap and simple it is to acquire a collection. We want to motivate people to pick them up. I don't think the prices will change because demand and supply aren't going to change much at this point, unless we make them so popular they get repressed, and then it'll be a joy to change.

Ah, good point. I'll insert the prices then.

I don't think it matters whether people buy used or new. The supply of the CD is depleted and the payment has gone to the artist, who is paid by wholesale and not retail. Further, this gets us closer to getting a re-press on many of these CDs as it depletes the stores of secondary merchants who will then send in requests to the label, which is the only way a label knows to repress. Regarding the label stores, that's a nifty thought but... they're way less consistent. These Amazon links could have been set up fifteen years ago and they'd still be valid. Less than 10% at best of label links would be that way.

Good idea then. I'm going to fix those links pointed to the old forum and then start changing the audiofile threads into the new format. But when I'm linking to Amazon I'm going to label it as "Buy CD" instead of putting a price as I'm sure the prices will change.

3. The links re-direct to the new forum and to the correct page. Do they need fixing regardless?

4. Can't see anything wrong with this.

5. I like this idea but if we're linking to amazon then people may purchase second hand copies and surely we'd want people to support the artists and buy first hand copies if they like the music. Maybe link to the record label shop instead?

Sounds like Morbid Angel - Gateways to Annihilation but that was a 2000 release.

There are still a bunch of bands on the reviews section that are missing the MP3 link to the audiofile even though the download links are ready and working in the audiofile. It goes like this:

- All the bands beginning with the letter A have no MP3 link to the audiofile.

- Bahimiron, Baphomet, Bathory, Behemoth, Belial, Blasphereion, Blood, Bolt Thrower, Deeds of Flesh, The Doors, Helstar, Heresiarch, Hetsheads, Kataklysm, Martyr, Metallica, Monastery, Morbus 666, Queensr˙che, Rachel Barton Stringendo, Slayer, Terrorizer, Ulver & Winterwolf all have no MP3 link to the audiofile.

- Cultus Sanguine, Pentagram & Repulsion all have an MP3 link but they take you to an incorrect page.

- Monstrosity has a link to the audiofile but it's been incorrectly labelled as "Monstrosity website."

Can this be fixed, please? Like I said, all these bands have working download links in the audiofile so we might as well get them linked up.

Metal / Birth A.D. - I Blame You
« on: June 21, 2013, 03:21:15 PM »
I've just popped the full length album in the audiofile for those interested.

It's basically like the EP but longer and more punch to it. I like the way they're criticizing other thrash bands as well as society.

We won't write any songs about thrash
Or put it on a shirt for some easy cash
We'll never tell you to get in the pit
Just do what you like, we don't give a shit

Ulver MP3s



"Latecomer to the black metal scene Ulver adapted the rough aesthetic of black metal in a modern rock context, providing a product to open up black metal to the masses."

Queensr˙che
Queensr˙che MP3s



"Queensr˙che began existence as a band very much in the spirit of Iron Maiden, but branched outward to include influences from progressive rock and 1980s electro-pop and subtle hints of industrial, making this band an interesting artifact of the late Cold War era."

Some of the bands have got Afghanistan as their country of origin when it's obviously not so. You can see which ones at the top of the heavy metal map.

Helstar MP3s



"A combination of old style Iron Maiden and faster, technical Slayer, this Texas band put out an amazingly played and intensely composed album before getting absorbed into the power metal camp."

The following bands did not transition to the new site because on the old site they only appeared on sub-genre pages but were missing from the main alpha list:

Avenger
Axis of Advance
Black Goat
Blazemth
Blind Illusion
Centinex
Conqueror
Deinonychius
Demonic
Gotmoor
Hades
Hate Eternal
Martyr
Mesrine
Metallica
Pervertum
Pessimist
Summon - (Appears on the black metal list but takes you to a dead link. Was there a review for this band previously?)
Urgrund
Usurper
Vilkates
Winterwolf

Also, how about bringing over some of the reviews from here:

Neoclassical music reviews

There's some great stuff here like Maeror Tri, Neptune Towers and Null for example.  Maybe there could be an ambient section to include these artists. Or perhaps they're more suitable for articles on the news section?
