Very very cool!
 
Congratulations!

      Just a couple of humble suggestions here!
 
It really looks like a lot of work your doing. If it's something you love then I'm sure it will be fun! It would be nice to get some audio gear manufactures to send you gear so you can put whole audiophile metal listening rigs together. You could display them as complete systems with great synergy and keep em grouped into different price points. You could have speaker rigs and headphone rigs! There is defiantly audio playback systems which differ from the norm and excel in metal music reproduction!
 
It would be nice to see some hot and foxy models too in a couple places! 
 
Photographs of female vocalists or just cute metal-girls or models modeling metal-cloths or even just wearing headphones.
 
So ya.............just my 2 cents in getting some eye candy in there with gear and gals. Later you could also get some pros to get you concert photographs of some of the bands you review. Adding the human element separates yourself from the masses of review sites out there and makes it fun!

Audio equipment, headphone and speaker reviews with a focus on metal performance are all on the list. Stay tuned!
 
Appreciate the input, but I think we would rather leave this sort of thing to the other guys....

Hello Everyone:
DaveBSC and I have been working on a project for the past six months and have finally gone live. We have created what we believe is the first truly DEDICATED audiophile site for headbangers. Our mission is to provide reviews/recommendations and pretty much everything metal.
www.metal-fi.com
If either of us have given you a recommendation in the past that you found interesting or really dug, please check the site out and give us some feedback (Contact page, PM us, whatever). We are lining up a few gear reviews in the next coming weeks as well as several articles, op-ed pieces, and a potential giveaway. Our main bread and butter will be music reviews but with a different focus than your other usual suspects (which we all know and love).
Btw, this does not mean Dave or myself are not going to be posting in this thread! We love you guys and are always looking for recommendations (and happy to lend them too). But our focus is going to be building a strong following on Metal-Fi over the next couple of months.

Im sure you guys are already planning on doing so, but my first recommendation would be to make sure you do reviews of every metal/hard rock release that HDTracks releases to let people know if they are worth it over the CD version, different less brickwalled masters etcetera. So we know whether its worth the extra cash to grab the hi res version.

http://www.cvltnation.com/exclusive-cvlt-nation-streaming-planks-funeral-mouth/    Free streaming album. The tracks change some times?
 
 

 
 
 
Not going into my top ten of the year but definitely an interesting listen. Even though this music is fairly simple it still takes a couple of plays to get used to it. Check out the break at 2:45!

 
This reminds me of one of your older recommendation, even though their sound is not exactly the same - Total Devastation Satama.

Definitely. Its in the works. In fact we are planning to have a lot of different gear to review (some of which are sponsor donated, we shall see)! :)
