Please make sure you submit to the right folder! Many people are just submitting to the After Forever folder rather than choosing the right category. This just makes a lot of work for the admins.

Also, please note that bands such as Amaranthe, Evanescence, Lacuna Coil should go in the Similar Bands folder. You can find a list of similar bands under Group Info.

Hi all, apologies that things have been quiet around here. I hope you will keep on submitting stuff and bear with us if we don't get to it in time!

I've been working on a list on my blog of all the upcoming symphonic metal albums and albums from similar genres that might be of interest people:
hapfairy.blogspot.co.uk/2014/0…

This list is also available on the r/symphonicmetal subreddit, for any Reddit users among you:
www.reddit.com/r/symphonicmeta…
The community there is growing and features news, discussion topics and of course, lots of sharing great songs.

For those who enjoy metal music with female vocalists, Muses of Metal have just opened up their new forum:
forum.musesofmetal.co.uk/

That's all for now, happy new year!


Q U E S T I O N

A lot of submissions were not voted on as I have been away from the group due to starting a full time job and being unwell. It also seems our other admins have been away as well. So I have started going to each deviation and resubmitting it. Please approve the requests if you'd like your artwork to be in the group! There are still quite a lot more to go as our folders have a limit of 3 deviations a day, so you can either wait for a request or resubmit your deviation and I will approve it. :aww:

If you love symphonic metal and are familiar with our submitting rules, why not apply to be an admin? Just write a message in the comments or PM me and I will get back to you as soon as I can.
