Is anyone still reading this? Probably not.

2010 – 2018

Hi guys. If you’ve ever read our articles in our first three years (2010-2013), I want to thank you for being there with us. This site was started in September 2010 when a bunch of guys in their early 20s wanted to have some fun online. Unfortunately this never became more than a fun little project, so slowly but surely, we all got too busy to work on it. Around 2013 we pretty much gave up. I posted a bit in 2014, then never touched it again until now.

I know I’m mostly writing this for myself, since nobody is probably reading this. But I still want to give a shoutout to my brothers Mark, Guido, Simo, Chris, Cosmin, Dusty, and everyone else who has contributed over the years. It’s been fun and I really think we had something here.

I am honestly very proud of what this site was in the early years, a hilarious take on metal news which few other sites could rival. I mean, we certainly weren’t the best, and we could never turn this into a profitable business, but we were fucking hilarious, if I do say so myself.

So I just wanted to write something here now that the site turned 8. Maybe someday we’ll find a way to revive this somehow. Until then, thanks again to everyone and see you around!

Back in Blog

Back in Blog? Back in Blood? Blog in Blog? What the hell am I on about? Well, I am back on the Dose of Metal team.

If you hadn’t noticed, after publishing my interview with Jed Simon back in March, I had quietly left Dose of Metal. Not a bad last article, in my opinion. But now I am back. And what’s the picture of the keyboard all about? I’ll let you figure that out yourself (hint: return).

It looks like I haven’t missed much since March, but someone has decided to redecorate this place. It looks nice. It looks more positive. No skeletons putting bullets to their skulls anymore. Now that Bob has left us (for your info, we’ve named our former suicidal skeleton Bob), it looks like he has left us with triplets. Or tripheads.

Yes, you are seeing right. With me returning, jokes that simply don’t work at all make a return aswell. I do have a test audience whom I tell my jokes to before posting them, and they’ve approved of all of this bullshit. Yes, the test audience consists of me. Sometimes also my mom.

So that’s about it. I’m back and I’m looking forward to writing for this blog again. It has taken me long enough, hasn’t it?

And now celebration after the jump!

Happy Birthday to DoM!

Happy fucking birthday to us! We’re turning 2 today, and even though we haven’t written too much in the last couple of months, we’re still proud of this site and we’ll still get wasted on its birthday — even though we’d use any excuse to drink.

We’re glad we have a new layout to go with our celebration and we hope to get back to writing daily like we used to do back in the day.

Either way, thanks to all the people who kept visiting daily even though the updates were scarce, thanks to everyone who’s been sending us emails asking not to close the site, and also thanks to all the people who volunteered to write for us — and our apologies for not getting back to you.

We’ve been busy, but we haven’t forgotten about the site, so keep watching this space as we will be getting our shit together at some point. Maybe

New Dose of Metal layout

This is something I’ve been meaning to do for a while, but never had time. Now the site sports a new look. Some things may still look weird, like a lot of the images of the older posts which got a bit distorted, but hopefully everything will get fixed at some point.

Oh yeah, I’ll also try to write more. Enjoy!

Apologies

Hey guys!

Really sorry about the leave of absence from all of us here at DoM. I guess real life got in the way of things.

We don’t know whether we’ll continue writing for the site or not, so please hang tight and while we make a decision.

 

 

Thanks!
