I'm posting this topic because my band is issuing and album any day soon and we want to send it around to be reviewed and we are searching for places, where we can do that. Of course one of the best places to do that is here at MetalStorm. Another place where they have underground reviews is The Metal Observer and they have thier adress publish in Contacts. I hope you guys will give other suggestions for places, so the underground bands would have a useful resource here.

P.S.: I'm willing to edit this post with every new suggestion so it is easy for people using the topic...

I don't know, but try the well-known magazines? It'll probably cost you one sending a CD to them, but if you e-mail them first, they might give you more information.. I think it is worth a try..

we play doom death metal... but if you have something to say or a place to offer, just say it and note to which genres it might be useful... I was hoping that this topic would be helpful only to my band, but anyway... there isn't too much interest anyway
