    What do you guys think of web based magazines?


    I think that if they are good, like Metal-Rules, Revelationz, or Metal Reviews (god, I am shameless arent I) and have integrity then they really are where the future of metal lies. I remember when I interviewed Jasun from Zero Hour and got an amazing interview and then about a week after it went up there was a blurb on them in BWBK. The BWBK one was a shitty quarter page with hardly any new info. I know that any weiner can start a douchey webzine but really, I dont expect to open up Metal Maniacs or BWBK anytime soon and see an interview with Jaded Heart, Dragonforce, or Wuthering Heights. I mean dont get me wrong, Im glad to see articles in Maniacs (I prefer them to BWBK although there isnt as many articles on good Power Metal and Prog) on bands like Kamelot and Evergrey but unless youre a "big hitter" its like how it was in the heyday of metal, hard as hell to get recognized in the metal "mainstream"

    I love online metal mags. When i get that email every sunday night from metalreviews, i go there and read the reviews and catch up for the week. They are a great source for news and great reviews if done right.

    I havent dealt with an online mag in a while. I just listen to some sample mp3s and/or ask my friends what they think about albums before buying.
