March Madness …   2 comments

Hello to the dude that sent me a threatening email over a review this month, remember how you said no one ever reads anything on this website – well dude, you going to love this!!!! In the month of March, Doommantia kill the previous monthly record by about 40,000 views. Last month, we reached the staggering total of 129,679 hits to the site and there is some encouraging stats to go along with it. Views to the Doommantia Webstore page tripled in the last 2 weeks of March which at least gives me some hope for the future. Sells have been consistent but very slow but what is really disappointing, is 99% of all sales have gone overseas, mostly to the UK. It seems that US people have given up on supporting their local bands and doom metal, sludge, drone and stoner rock in general. Country views show that Europe is still the doom capital of the world, nearly 3/4 of all hits to the site come from there but hits coming from places like India, Greece, Spain and Italy are also on the rise. Most people spend an average of 7 minutes on the site, I guess that is the right amount of time to read one of my long-winded reviews. The record though goes to someone in England who spent 42 hours on the site, or at least his or her computer did.

We published 44 reviews this month, the highlights being CD’s from The Grand Astoria, Blood Ceremony, Wizard’s Beard,
Wooden Stake
and Graveyard. It was a quite month for interviews, but Dr Doom did interview Ramesses, Mississippi Bones and the great Orchid. I did an interview with Dave & Pat from Within The Torn Apart – better known as WTTA. and Lee from The Sleeping Shaman supplied us with an interview with Drug Honkey.  As usual none of this could have been done without the help of the staff here at Doommantia, thanks for all your help. Now we move on to April and what a way to start, I have a Pentagram album review and a short review for the Pentagram/Bobby Liebling movie ready to go.

Cheers and thanks for all the support.

  1. 42 hours? That could easily have been me :).

    I'd seen your site linked many times, but this last weeks I've finally got round to working my through the archives. Top quality stuff! Objective, knowledgeable and informative reviews, I couldn't ask for more. Thank you very much.

  2. Ha Ha, thanks for the support brother.
