For fans of the Death Metal Underground site at

The Death Metal Underground (DMU) is the net’s oldest and longest-running metal site. It exists to spread two ideas: (a) that heavy metal is a form of art and not “entertainment” and (b) the origins of heavy metal are in European Romanticism, whose imagery and ideals it carries to this day.

This mission is massively unpopular. Most people want disposable entertainment that puts no burden of understanding on them. They want something they can project into and then leave without feeling a sense of loss. They don’t want great; they want television in audio form.

With over 25 years experience listening to metal, supporting local scenes, writing about metal and interacting with metalheads and bands, our staff — most of whom work as professional writers — strive to represent metal for what it is, not how it can be sold.
