I am much more familiar with the glam metal side of Whitesnake, but I'll move them to Traditional HM as you suggested.  I'll have to check out their ealier discography as well.

I've been digging into more metalcore recently, so I wouldn't mind taking that collab position if no one else has claimed it yet. Although in reality I would gladly accept any position and/or be willing to provide any help necessary.

I would prefer Power Metal, Symphonic Metal, Doom Metal, or Death Metal.

I also suggest splitting Post Metal and Sludge into separate genres. They are not similar enough, in my opinion, and in the opinion of similar sites, to be included under one banner.


I second that suggestion. Plus, I second this guy's proposal; he knows his metal.

I would recommend myself for a position, but I'm probably not qualified to be in a collab position on a metal site, haha. You guys can take me though if you don't have enough qualified volunteers. Can't see that happening though. Tongue

I would gladly contribute to the genre of post-metal/sludge (though I do think that there is a slight distinction between the two sub-genres; for example, Isis and Black Cobra do not really belong in the same category) and even some death metal (mainly the realm of tech-death and some math metal akin to Meshuggah and TesseracT).

My friend Ian (Waiting or Dim as he is known at Progarchives) recommended this site to me and suggested that I become a contributor.

Thanks!

I guess we'll need a concensus...
 
I think the genre's, while slighltly different, are similar enough to be put under one banner. On last.fm, it seems like every post metal group is primarily tagged with sludge, and their secondary tag would be post metal (See Isis and Cult of Luna). This is just my thinking, and my suggestion. If the majority thinks the two should be seperate then it would make sense to seperate them of course.
 
So what do we think? My vote goes for combined. Smile

I'm really into the History of metal, but tend to get a little lost after 1991.
 
 
Specialist fields;
 
Proto Metal
Early Metal/Hard Rock
NWoBHM - Main interest area!
The rise of Thrash/Death metal and all the other metal sub categories
 
 
My work is horrendously busy ATM, but you know me - I just love to help... there's an old thread on another music forum where I brain-dumped a whole load of stuff that may be useful.
 
 
Please note; I'm not begging for collaborator status or anything like that - I really am just happy to help out.

WOW Cert, this is a hell of surprise and a great one. 

I know very well your that you can help us a lot in better writing the whole history of metal here by better albums classification, better bands bio, better bands selection, better sub-genres organization and documentation (definition) and reviews or course Wink

You will be a hell of a resource for MMA.

I will post a reply soon with all the new nomination !!!

Thanks [email protected] - I'm a bit surprised that you're surprised - I've always been a confirmed metal addict!
 
 
...and feel free to plunder as much as you like - as usual, I've aimed at accuracy, and ended up completely disagreeing with consensus on many things - but at the very least, there may be some extra bands to add to the archives, or some stuff to make forum discussions out of.

Nice work, and i think it would fit perfectly well on MMA pages . I will let you decide how to put the pieces together when you have the TITLE Site Admin, so you can discuss with us about your ideas in the special topic about it.

Hey [email protected], just knew you are searching for collabs and i'm here to offer you my help with the genres I like on heavy metal: death metal, thrash metal and progressive metal.  Thumbs Up

And I would like to quote Certif1ed here:

^ I think you'd be more likely to be considered if it weren't for those huge sig pics -- the first not only being massive, but may be considered not quite tame enough for a PA-related site.  I mean I rather like it, and it's the kind of thing I might expect to see in a metal site, but.... LOL

I removed the biggest one in my sig (which was only meant to be temporary):

Yeah, the size thing is really a pain. I think I will resize them later.
 
About the theme, it is actually tame when compared with the actual death metal themes. Compare it with Cannibal Corpse's, Obituary's, Necrophagia's and even early Death's lyrics and it becomes quite normal LOL.
 
If my signature is still a problem I can take it out though.

Hello. I'm finally here after I discovered a thread that was there for like... ever... and I just noticed it.... LOLEmbarrassed

With 4 years experience in this website's sister and longest standing member of the progressive-metal team there I also request to be a member/collaborator/admin of the MMA website. I'm sure I can contribute to help this website and the forum become one of the biggest in the internet world.... My things are mostly prog, black, death, thrash, and heavy metal, with their variants. 

I know all of you already Tongue
