    anyone who would write black metal album reviews sporadically or regularly would be very much appreciated. i write about 4 per week as of late, and as soon as wrestling is over (IE as soon as the coach kicks me off the team) i'll be doing 2 a day.

    if you want to contribute anything, my email address is apoodangle@hotmail.com

    thanks,
    Dan

    This is why it can be so miserable to wear black on a hot day. The black cloth absorbs much more energy than white cloth.'

    goth is nothing like black metal...AT ALL...how could you really put black tape for a blue girl in the same barrel as venom...i'm thinking you would end up with a few dead goths...check out some emperor and satyricon, too...maybe some ulver, hellhammer...yeah, not goth at all...

    i'm hardly the best writer, though a lot of us appreciate the opportunity. i'd dig checking out your webzine, though...kerrang! is starting to get a little...eh, you know...

    Nope, its metal played exclusively by African Americans :D :cool:
     
  6. i see a potential staff writer in you. (really)

    i'm not the best writer either, the idea is to convey your opinion of it in as little space as possible, contrary to what lots of people think.

    and knowing is half the battle...

    hey, i may be interested in doing a couple articles or so...let me know which albums you'd like reviews on...i'll see what i can do for you...just be advised, i've never done anything like this. i would say the closest i've ever come is doing performance evaluations on the sailors that work for me in the navy...but, i do dig metal of the black sort (heck, even my last name is black), and i'm always looking for an excuse to buy new cd's and blast some tunes at inappropriate volume levels ;)
     
  10. Your just in luck, I am a great writer(freelance articles for my old schools paper, numerous teachers give me A's on my poems, actually I never got anything lower then an A on the literary works I did) and ask some people on this board know, I am fully Black Metal. I just require you not to indulge into psuedo-black metal e.g. dummy burger, new satyricon, and oceans, kovenant. If anything I might do And Oceans..., Also some free cd's would be great.

    And here, since I own all the Living Colour CDs (including the latest "Collideoscope") I thought I was qualified. Damn! :spit:

  15. ah please, write away, whatever you want :D if i wanted something to be reviewed i'd have done it myself already, so i'm counting on other people to review stuff i haven't heard yet

    but whadya mean when you say you require i not indulge into psuedo-black metal? i have satyricon's new album and i love it. i also have all their old ones and i love em too. i guess you couldn't exactly call em true black metal, fine. i still enjoy em, just the same as i like Mayhem and Dark Funeral.
     
  16. review anything you want really, if i want something specific on the site, i'd have done it already ;)

    hey, that sounds interesting.

    I did a black/death metal radio show when I was in university... does that mean I'm qualified? ;)

    Only thing is, I don't have that many "new" releases. Mostly ones from a few years ago. Do you want reviews for those too?

    I'd love to...minored in the journalism before being tossed for lack of funds. Any chance you'd email/post word limits, style ideas, submission procedure? To email, quitstalin@yahoo.com much thanks


    tea.
     
  19. thrashjazz: course you're qualified :D older releases are fine as well

    tea: just email em to me, (apoodangle@hotmail.com) and try to keep it concise. that's really all i need.
     
  20. I love black metal. But the only band i can think of is Living Colour and my review of them is that they kick A$$. Seems to be a magazine that is very limited.

    (yes i know thats not what you meant by black metal. Whats up with you kids and all your crazy terms for things)
