Our Mission and Stance on Copyrighted MP3s

  • Mission

    Our mission is to spread the best of underground metal and to bury the worst. We call this musical natural selection.

  • Natural Selection

    We upload music so you can pick only the best to buy. This starves bad musicians and bad labels, letting only the strong survive, which in turn strengthens metal music and the metal subculture.

  • Stance on Copyright

    It is not our goal to help the piracy of mainstream music. In underground metal, where 1000 CDs sold is a big seller, the biggest thread is listeners not getting to hear the music they might want to buy. We do not tolerate mainstream uploads and we do not support MP3 trading at high rates; our goal is to get listeners a chance to listen to music so they don't buy crap and weaken the genre.

Have fun and don't get AIDS!
