    Where do you get metal news?

    by Donutsauce » Wed Feb 27, 2019 9:49 am

    Never really followed metal news since I really don't care about the drama of why some band has a beef with another, but it hasn't been all that bad knowing when a band's lineup changes, Ozzy's out sick, new albums, that type of thing since I started getting some newsletters.

    So just looking for some good sources if you got em. The less drama-filled the better, but I get that it's sort of unavoidable.

    I figured fb would be one of the main things...
    Wish fb was more avoidable, or I could just get over my general distaste for it. I did recently make a FB just to follow metal stuff though. Big surprise, it's already suggesting people I know as friends!

    Been getting MetalSucks' email newsletter.

    Metal is essentially the only reason I still have a Facebook account. It's the best place for tour and band news. Follow the pages of the bands you like and you'll see basically everything.

    I wish I could get off Facebook, I really do...

    Pretty much the same here, although I've sworn off MetalSucks; don't want to give them the clickbait revenue.

    Same here...

    I don't really care that much about "news", just reviews of new stuff to listen to and for that I trust AngryMetalGuy.com and MetalBancamp.com
