You can contact us about anything your little black hearts desire at:

islander@nocleansinging.com

If you’d like to get alerts when we post new blogs, you can subscribe to our RSS feed via the link on our home page, or by following us on our Facebook page which you can find here. We post a status on Facebook every time we add a new post to this site, with a link to the NCS posts.  We also have a Myspace page, but that baby is as dead as MySpace itself, so don’t bother with it.

SPECIAL NOTE TO BANDS: Feel free to contact us about your music. If you’re interested in having us feature or review what you’re doing, please provide a link to a place where songs can be streamed and a download link for your EPs or albums. Please do NOT just send us a download link without also giving us a link to a place where at least something from the release can be streamed. It takes too long and too much hard-drive space to download everything before we get a chance to sample the music and get an idea whether it’s something we might want to recommend to others.

Please be aware that we may or may not write about your music, even if you send us CDs or download links. Even if we really like what you’re doing, we just don’t have enough time to write about every band we like; the selection turns out to be pretty random. We wish it were otherwise, but that’s just the fact. So, don’t think we’re ignoring you or hate your music just because you don’t see something on the site about your band.

Also, because the process IS very random and impulsive, sometimes a couple of months may go by after you send us the music before we write about it, and sometimes you might see something the very next day (and sometimes there will be nothing at all, ever).

Please also be aware that in most instances we will not answer your e-mails. It’s not that we think we’re too important to be courteous, but we get literally hundreds of e-mails a day, and if we responded to all of them, there wouldn’t be enough time left to create new posts for this blog every day.

Happy trails.

    Thought you lot would really appreciate Errata, one of Australia’s best (and only?) jazzcore bands:

    I did a quick search and didn’t see anything on Facebreaker. IMHO, a great death metal band from Sweden. Plus all the songs on their last album are about zombies. You migh want to give them a listen.

    Hello, i’ve been meaning to recommend these guys and get them a bit more press and acknowledgement for a while.

    Martriden – http://www.myspace.com/martriden

    Melodic/proggy black metal band. American. Self-controlled and self-released. Great first EP and two awesome albums.

    I think I’m gonna like it here, even if my tastes don’t quite align with NCS’s aim, at least not as strictly. But so far, so good. I may have to dig through my collection and pass some names your way one of these days, as if you didn’t have enough to do/listen to.

    • Islander says:

      Thank you again for spending so much of your time wading through our posts! And i would definitely encourage you to pass some names our way. I will find more time. In fact, I think I’m sleeping too much as it is.

  5. I dig this blog, Wanna trade links!.

  6. Leighton says:

    Hey man. just wanted to ask you something.
    Do get much spam?
    Cause I’m getting flooded with the shit!

    Comments like. This is a really terrific blog, your knowledge on the topic is very informative, I will be subscribing to your feed.

    That covers nearly all my comments.

    Just curious that’s all. Cheers!

  7. Islander says:

    No man, I don’t get anything like that. I do see some strange registrations — people with e-mail addresses that look like they’e part of internet commerce sites, but I have no idea how that would help them get addresses for other people who register here. That’s all private.

    • Leighton says:

      Ok.

      I moderate all my comments and I’m getting between 10 and 20 a day.
      Think I might try one of those captcha test things and see how that goes.

      Cheers man. Catchya Later.

      • Islander says:

        Well, let me know what you find. I barely know enough about technology to put this blog together and could use some insights. It would kill me to think I’ve exposed legitimate readers to a bunch of spam bullshit, and I would take steps to stop it if I knew it was a problem and could figure out the fix.

  8. Bryan says:

    My friend’s band Cloned Moor Solares is one of the coolest mathcore/prog bands I’ve heard in a while, they are about to release their debut EP soon, I think you guys might dig it

    It’s one of my projects. I’m a 15 year old guitarist from Taiwan, you can see a little bit of my work on my youtube channel.

  21. Jaimehere says:

    First time to ever watch SIN live a few hours ago, too bad they were short of a guitarist, they were already heavy, raw and technical as it is imagine if they were complete haha

    oh and here is a metalcore band for anyone that digs August Burns Red

    http://www.facebook.com/arcadiahxc

    finally bought their album yesterday, good stuff, they are also under Tower Of Doom whose roster includes Bloodshedd and SIN

  22. snake jesus says:

    Would love for you to give my band a listen. My friends and I play in a noisy band called Snake Baptist. Not sure what to call it other than a modern interpretation of screamo from the late 90s-early 2000s. If you’re a fan of the vocals from sawtooth grin or cloacal kiss, then you’ll enjoy them since it’s the same fellow doing them. We just released our first EP. We did ourselves and would love any feedback you’d like to provide on it. Enjoy.

    Hey, guys. I just read your review of the new, and long overdue, Disfiguring the Goddess album.

    It would be an honor to hear what you have to say about my band.

  24. If you have a moment, check out my band Love On The Lips of a Whore. We’re writing a new album titled “Liars & Cheaters” out late this year!

    hey dude – from one islander to another – can you add http://www.theangryfijian.com to your blogroll!!! awesome site, one of the best, definitely one of the more informative out there – thanks!

  26. byrd36 says:

    Have you been in contact with anyone from TNOB? They’ve been down for two days.

    • Islander says:

      Yes, I have, though the people I’ve been communicating with aren’t 100% sure what’s happening. As best i can tell, the web host service they use — Convelocity — is itself down across the board. If you visit http://www.convelocity.com, you’ll see a message which implies to me that they just rent their servers from another company and either aren’t paying their own bills or have some other problem. I’m guessing that TNOTB is going to have to find a new web host and try to re-load a back-up copy of their whole site.

      • byrd36 says:

        Well, that sucks. I hope they get it worked out and don’t lose any of their work.

        Thanks for the info, I figured you’d know the score 😉

    Hey guys. I’m Josh from Stealing Axion, a progressive metal band based out of Tacoma, WA. I’ve seen your reviews pop up a few times on our friend’s bands facebook pages. (Odyssey, Textures, etc.) Noticed that you guys are based out of the Seattle area, so I figured I should send you guys our EP and maybe you could check it out.

    You can hear the EP at stealingaxion.bandcamp.com

    If you guys review it, I’d love to get an email letting us know so we can promote it online and get some viewers over to your site as well.

  37. MrFuNpAnTs says:

    Are you guys hiring for collaborators? I’ve listened to death metal my whole life, and have been looking for a website like this since I can’t even remember. I know its a shot in the dark but it would be an honor for me if I was allowed to be able to be a part of something this bad ass. If it makes any difference Ive got an IT degree, I’ve worked at a metal venue in Arizona for a couple of years (The Clubhouse, Tempe) and I have researched death metal most of my life. I have met and chilled with many different metal bands (Sepultura, Fear Factory, Neuraxis, Through the Eyes of the Dead, Nile, Deicide, The Absence, Ensephirum, D.R.I, Fintroll, Decrepit Birth, Watain, Gwar, Carnifex, Vital Remains and countless others). I am serious as a Heart Attack and have memorabilia to prove it.
    Death Metal is my LIFE. Please email me and Hire My ASS!

    Just wanted to share how awesome Finland once again is. We had a news about the plane crash in Poland in our yellow press. Catch is that members of Decapitated were abroad that plain and the story is mostly about them

  43. peepeeinurmomsbunghole says:

    This has to be one of the most ridiculous sites for metal I’ve ever encountered. Not only is the name lame, it’s contradictory to posts on the site. If I made a site to help shed light on people who had cancer yet wrote stories about people who had caner and Parkinson’s and called it Caner Patients Only… what would people think? They would think that I’m a dumb-ass. Take it for what it’s worth…. and please just because some over spoken, two faced guy, who plays guitar in a band that’s been around over a decade because he exploits people and sucks off the tit of others, doesn’t mean his opinion is worth the shit that comes out of his facehole. There is a reason The Binary Code isn’t liked in it’s own home state and it’s not because the scene is dead, it’s because the founder is a sorry prick. Ask around… I mean why couldn’t a high traffic site lift his band off the ground? Because his ass is too fat and he is a backstabbing fuck. Take a look at some of the other bands that have gained exposure through MS…. they’re getting tours. Take a look at who isn’t… Unfortunately, some Jews don’t quit.

  44. Sithu Aye says:

    Hey guys, my name is Sithu and I’m a 21 year old guitarist based in Scotland. I released my album ‘Cassini’ a couple of months ago and while I’ve pedaled it already on facebook. got-djent.com, heavyblogisheavy among other sites, it would be tremondously cool if you guys could do a review or post about it on your website. I would say the style of the album is instrumental progressive metal, with elements of ‘djent’ in it and it’s up for free download on my bandcamp.
