Hi guys. Just wanted to start a thread appreciating what all they do for us metal fans. I mean it should be necessary, uniting us all from M-A, here, Reddit, and 9gag. Metal is about friendship and comradery and life. If it werent for M-A, i wouldnt even know about metal. Discuss?

I like the place. I think that my tastes align more closely with those of the members here, but it has way better discussions than the NWN! forums. And it's great as a database as well. There are obviously going to be some inaccuracies, but it's a very useful website.

Why so? Im honestly interested in the opinions here, because they seem to know what they're talking about. I mean c'mon. Come on.

Boy, are YOU on the wrong forum.

M-A is fine though. Such a useful resource. I don't post on the forum much anymore but I still use the database near-daily.

Only seen mentions of the M-A forum on here, never so much as looked at it myself. It's a great page for looking up bands though. But yea, that's about it.

Encyclopedia Metallum is useful but has problems when the metal autists try to talk to each other.

1. 99% shitty forum topics. "What is the best sixth album from the big four of USNSPM?" What? United States National Socialist Power Metal is a thing? Every few months you will get some gold like the "Retarded Live Performances" thread.
2. Shit flavor of the month reviews giving D grade albums an 89% as "It's not the best but it's fuckin' heavy"
3. Autists bitching when people give their favorite F-grade albums a zero. Okay fine Surgical Steel is maybe a 10% at best: Bill Steer had a few decent leads, they covered Holy Wars, and the proggy track at the end wasn't that bad once you got past the awful introductory part. Still a solid shit sandwich.

Very useful resource that has helped me find out about a lot of great stuff. The forum sucks balls though.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

That exactly, the forum is a waste of time arguing about bull shit.

The actual site as a resource is really great, especially updating it to include the different version of albums has helped me with more than a few questions about pressings. Discogs is nice too, but MA is just for metal so it seems to have more info regarding those things.

It's a great resource, but the forum is crap compared to the NWN! forum. The reviews are 50/50. Sometimes they are good, but there are way too many people who will give any Metallica or Iron Maiden album a 100.
