What is

In it's most basic form, is a site and organization to help bands get internet presence and world-wide recognition.

For Bands we offer web-hosting with a subdomain (ie. <bandname> with E-mail and other useful features to help keep their fans updated on gigs and news.

We also promote shows on the website, write reviews of concerts and CD's, and do interviews. also sponsors and books shows in various cities (for now only in Santa Fe, NM USA - but we are looking for help to expand this greatly, for info Contact Us).

So be sure to check back often for reviews, concerts coming to your area, or interviews of the most INTENSE METAL!!

Who orchestrates this madness?

Why... I do... for now... I am Augustine Ortiz originally from Nambe, NM USA. Currently I am in the band Insight and a Senior at New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology (a.k.a. New Mexico Tech) in Socorro, NM USA majoring in Computer Science.

Also thanks goes out to Jeff Sproul and Fitch Research for donating the server itself.

Why was created? was created because my band, Insight, needed a website that had the features offered to bands here. Since I was going to have to write them for us anyway, I figured I may as well help out other bands as well. Then with that came the idea of building a site that would help to promote all the bands on the site. Since I also do booking and promoting for various events, do reviews at a radio station and newspaper, and build websites, is the best contribution I can think of making to the Heavy Metal community. I hope you enjoy the site and visit back often.

If you would like to get involved in any way, Let me Know! has been created with HTML 4.01 Transitional as defined by The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). The site has also been designed to work on any resolution 640x480 and higher.
