SMNnews has been around since April of 2002 – a stalwart in the independent music community. The idea when first starting this website was to be interactive with those the underground metal and hardcore world – namely its fans and up and coming artists. That has never and will never change.

Attention; Bands….  We get dozens and dozens of requests thru this contact form every single day asking for reviews, information posts on upcoming tours or releases, etc… Obviously, the vast majority have to be ignored because, frankly, there just isn’t enough time in the day to look into each one… A much better solution for you would be to post your own information in our forums. Currently, our forums have over 3.2 million posts in 200,000 forums, with more than 35,000 registered members… Contact us thru this form and we will create your own Official Band Forum within our forums for you to publish your own information to our members. Sign up for the forum (see links below) and send us your username and we’ll set you up to moderate your own forum. This will be a much more effective way for you to reach out to our members.
