An mp3 sharing community dedicated to

This is a friendly community for Ye Olde Metal and bands that haven't forgotten their roots.

Our goal is to spread knowledge and awareness of all the great metal bands who helped pave the way for and inspire the metal scene of today.
This means that our focus is mainly directed towards the 1980's (a.k.a. The Golden Age Of Metal, or "the decade that Duran Duran invented")
as well as even older bands (and all the great contemporary bands!) who keep that same spirit and sound alive.

So, strap on your bullet belts and leather (or zebra spandex) pants, and come on in! You'll quickly get the gist of what we're all about.


Guidelines for posting:


New members are required to make a short introductory post within the first few weeks of joining. In it, you should tell us a little about yourself, mention some of your favorite bands and genres, and also what you expect from this community. There is no pressure to upload anything, but please show that you're alive every once in a while! Members who are found to not make any contributions of any kind whatsoever will be removed.

  1. Only full albums in MP3 format are allowed.

  2. The preferred encoding is anywhere between 192 and 320 kbps.

  3. Compress albums in .ZIP or .RAR format.

  4. A good site for file hosting is Mediafire. Other recommended sites are Rapidshare, Megaupload, Divshare or SendSpace.

  5. Put your posts behind a friends-lock.

  6. Tag your entries with the name of the band(s) you're posting - nothing else.

    Use the "!requests" tag when you're requesting something from a band, not their name tag.

  7. Please give a little description of the band/album(s) you upload. After all, this is also a community for learning.

  8. No industrial metal, gothic metal, brutal/technical death metal, -core bands or nu metal!

  9. Sharing demos and obscure shit from the 1980's is however strongly encouraged.

  10. Contribute, request, comment, behave and enjoy!
