14:55 - Apothecary I can guarantee you that I would not know at least 75% of the metal bands that I do today had it not been for this site
14:54 - Apothecary We care about giving those who are just starting out and getting going their time of day and the exposure they deserve. It isn't JUST MS that does this, but we do seem to be where that attitude is strongest

First it was .Net. Then it was version 4.0.Now Metal Storm is taking the next step towards total world domination. No, we aren't looking to overthrow a Eastern European government and installing ourselves as a Metal Oligarchy. Our plans are much more insidious.
We are proud to announce the launch of Metal Storm Music!
That's right. We're taking the steps to become our own label! We figure with the number of acts throwing stuff at us for reviews or write-ups in the Clandestine Cuts features, and hoping some label signs the brightest and boldest, why not just cut out the middle man and start putting stuff out our damned selves. After all, we've been telling all of you what is worth listening to in metal for nearly a decade.
So today, we announce the first stable of bands to Metal Storm Music. We'll have some interviews with our "Founding Fathers" that will be popping up in the near future. Check 'em out. And be sure to check them out again once we get the ball rolling on recording and putting albums out!
