So I got bored and I noticed that a lot of other big wikis had a Discord page. In an attempt to have some more talk between the active users we have I have created a Discord server for all things Metal Wiki. It will not be limited to just the Metallica "fandom" page, but any metal community on "fandom" (I still prefer Wikia damnit!) that wishes to join the little coalition that we have created. From the Metallica page to the Black Sabbath one.
All are welcome, you can join via the widget on the side bar on the right side of the page on most pages or via the link provided below. Hope to see ya there!

I'm finding more and more things I'm going to have to do research on.
Again, I'm learning alot about Metallica.
So much for being away for several days.
I'm having to do research on Metallica, as I mentioned in the last blog.
I'm not as familiar with the singles as I am with the albums.
I'm doing research on 2 of One. I still haven't figured out why the article was deleted.
I'm still considering starting Metal Church and Flotsam and Jetsam wikis.
Doing research on Metallica singles and home videos is getting rather frustrating.
However, I'm learning alot about Metallica.
I saw that a page on 2 of One was previously created, but deleted. I haven't been able to determine why it was deleted, so I'm hesitant to create another one right now.
Also, two Metallica EP pages have single infoboxes, which doesn't make sense to me.
It's Christmas Eve, so I may be away for a few days.
I'm having to do research on Metallica's singles.
This is still a weak point in my Metallica knowledge, especially the post-ReLoad singles. I'm not even very familiar with Metallica's post-ReLoad ALBUMS.
So as the few of you who actually edit here may have seen, Fandom is starting to move some of the communities over from the Wikia domain name to the Fandom domain. We've been apparently chosen as one of the first communities to be a part of this transition. Full details here.
Since they're doing a major transition on their part it's vital that we provide them feedback for any problems that may arise from this change. Hopefully this will all go smoothly and everything will be fine so we can get back to making this the best spot for all things Metallica.
I recently heard Ron McGovney's 82 Garage Demo, the Whisky Audition Tape, and the Metal Up Your Ass live recording.
I think there are some more live recordings with Dave Mustaine I've yet to hear.
I'm still experiencing technical difficulties.
I haven't seen any articles on Metallica's demos.
Is this on purpose, or is it OK for me to start articles on these demos?
I'm looking for spelling and punctuation errors, but I haven't found many, so far.
So, I'm sure some of you have seen the update to the tracklisting for the deluxe edition. To be honest I'm a little be peeved, I really wanted to hear the demo versions of the songs. I mean Demo Magentic was amazing, just to see the mindset of where the guys were towards to the beginning of the process of writing for the Death Magentic album felt amazing. I always love to hear demos of songs I love, it helps me work out some stuff that I'm having trouble with when working on my own songs.
Now... well now I just feel robbed, yeah the songs we're getting are cool... but they're also the same songs we've heard a million times. I can't even begin to describe how many times I've listend to For Whom the Bell Tolls or Creeping Death. I mean they'r…
So, it has come.
The new album has been announced and everyone is happy. Dear god, that riff was amazing, only to think I was having a shit day until I heard that song.
So what is everyone's hopes for album? If the entire album is as good as Hardwired, then I have no doubts it'll be top five material for my favorite albums list.
When I was a little girl (like 5 to 10 years old), I had this guy cousin I looked up to named David. David was about 5 years older than me, and I thought he was so cool. We would go over to their house and I would go to his room which was decorated in black and he had a pet snake. It was David that first liked heavy metal and introduced me to it. I was immediately in love with Metallica. My mom thought I was crazy. My sister thought I was crazy. This was the early 80s and heavy metal was cutting edge and ugh, for guys. I didn’t care. I was always pretty deep and precocious and I absolutely loved the way the lyrics had real meaning. Even at my young age, I was able to understand, for example, that “One” was talking about someone who had bee…
Metallica Night is February 2016! Lol but its already sold out.
