How long has the site been around for? was created at the beginning of  2008, however it wasn’t until around March ’08 that the content really started flowing. The rise in content saw visitor numbers increased rapidly and general knowledge about the site extend around the country and in some cases, the world.

Where is the site based?
If you can’t tell already, this site is Australian based. Currently all of our main staff are located in Victoria, however this is simply coincidence as we cater to as much of the broader Australian Metal community as we can. We also have contributors based in various locations around Australia.

Where do you source your information?
Our staff source information mostly from social networking sites, and various contacts throughout the music industry. This includes records labels, tour/gig promoters, bands, venues and other sources. But the best way to make sure that we can cover all of the news possible, is for you guys to send to send it in via contact(at)metalobsession(dot)net. It doesn’t matter how small the band is, we want to hear about you! And if you know of any other bands that you believe require a bit of extra promotion, make sure to direct them here.

There is incorrect information in your gig guide and/or news section.
The Aussie music scene isn’t the easiest one to keep track of information in. We try to keep everything as accurate as possible however things do change. If you see any wrong or outdated information, make sure to send us an email and we’ll correct it straight away.

Will you review my band’s CD/interview my band?
Of course we will! There’s nothing we like to see more than bands promoting their albums by means such as internet reviews. While we do get sent many cds for review, Australian album’s – especially those sent in by individual bands, generally have priority. Chuck us an email and our postage address is yours.

Can I join your staff?
As the site grows, we will indeed be looking for more contributors so that we can keep up to date and keep the content flowing. If you are interested in becoming part of Metal Obsession and think you can benefit the site, then send us an email  and we will get back to you as soon as we can.

<insert band here> is not really “metal”, why are they featured on your site?
Probably because they’re awesome regardless.
