Oakland's Blackwulf Signs to Ripple Music

This just came through our feeds, but we're always excited when a band gets signed to a good label. So I listened to Blackwulf's latest release on their Blackwulf Bandcamp page. Was very impressed. In fact, I was so impressed, I messaged my buddy Timothy J, of The COAR Radio Show. Apparently, Tim already knew about Blackwulf and has been holding out on me. We'll see about that!

Bandcamp: Quick Review of Latest Palatable Offerings

Most of the metal that's up on Bandcamp is screetching banshee or growling cookie monster nonsense. My own belief, is that bands put out music like this because they can't get vocalists who are any good and end up doing the banshee/cookie monster stuff to cover up that fact. How these bands ever get listeners is beyond me. However, we've found a few gems to share with you and they will hopefully tide you over for the next few days...

Encyclopaedia Metallum, The Metal Archives

With the nature of the Internet being what it is, a site like The Metal Archives has been around for a long long TIME - since 2002. It is a resource for metal music, the likes of which, I don't believe has been created for any other form of music. Right now, there are over 100,000 metal bands listed in its searchable database. There are over 25,000 independent record labels listed as well.
