DaN, if I understood you correctly members and perhaps others are welcome to add new albums and write new reviews? What are the rules? Same as on both almost lost pages? I guess not bcs you omitted post 1999 releases. But you have been probably brooding on them, huh? Let us know, one member has already asked me, if he could send sth new.

Just a little detail: in this one track 5 is listed as "Luiza Empieces Otra Vez" when it should read "Quiza Empieces Otra Vez".
Cheers! Fixed now. Keep 'em coming, folks..

A couple of weeks. Luckily I didn't have to do each page separately but could use some clever search-&-replace trickery on all pages at once. The most difficult challenge was "how the hell do I turn 2000+ separate html-pages into one searchable database-table??" but I figured out a pretty clever way to do that too. (Won't bore anything w/ tech details, ha ha)
Lots of after-work now, with adding better pictures, correcting rarity ratings etc, but the priority will be to add new reviews...

I haven't really thought about recruiting reviewers yet. I guess if someone with really rare stuff (and not too shitty taste :lol: ) wanted to write something that'd be ok. ...and I could never turn down anyone who have contributed to The Metalpage in the past. FULL scans of the sleeve is an absolute must though!

THIS IS GREAT! Thank you!
Read some reviews for old times sake.
btw: The ARMAGEDDON (Cyprus) has some repetitive paragraphs at the end.
This is a really weird bug that sometimes happens when you use the English translation-plugin on some reviews. Googling this problem doesn't turn up any relevant results, so it might take a while for me to figure out what's causing this..

Another question:

which ones are priority, then? those that you/we know nothing about or have barely heard about? Demos? Which ones? Rare collectible version of known items? :?:

I suppose I could review a ton of old US/CAN hard rock/metal singles that no one knows about, if you're interested.
Laugh at you in ecstasy, wallow in the gore.

- Unknown/lesser known / underrated old Metal vinyl is of course first priority, but early private CD releases are also interesting. Demos I think are almost an entire separate ocean that might need a separate section in the future, when we've run out on records to dig up.
- English reviews of classic records that are currently only in German is also welcomed, as well as longer reviews on the many short 1-2-line reviews in the archive.
- Styles like aor, sleaze, 70's rock, prog and crossover are less interesting, unless there's special circumstances like interesting band-connections or a need to "warn" about records that look totally Metal.

Oh Hell Yezz! Actually I was planning on asking you about that since your US 7"-collection is Pure GOLD for this Project. Whenever you've got the time & inspiration, just write->scan->mail me.
