The Noise-Arc Project: Punk & Metal Band Directory

A little while ago I posted a status on Facebook, when I was toying with the idea of creating a database of bands. It's something I've been thinking about doing since LastFM changed and became less user friendly and since Metal Archives only really caters for extreme metal.

After looking at different options and racking my brain a bit, I've decided to build a directory that will eventually be shared online. It'll be quite simple but hopefully useful too. I'll be adding bands, the country they are based in, links to social media and to music. The only real stipulations are that the bands have to come from within the emo/punk/metal/extreme metal genres, have a social media presence/blog/site and have music available.

I will be welcoming submissions of bands for inclusion (that perhaps I haven't heard of before), so feel free to send stuff over using the contact form or via e-mail/Facebook. 

This is going to be a project that will continually be growing and will no doubt change over time. I hope that it will be a useful tool for fans of alternative and heavy music.
