I dont know how popular this website is among the metal forum, but it has always been my go-to resource for metal info and reviews. When i went to visit it today, I was greeted by the same FBI banner that now appears when one tries to visit megaupload. It looks like the owners of the metal archives are being sued for copyright infringement. This website had so much information on so many bands and the fact that now all that is just gone seems unreal to me. I consider this a great loss to the entire metal community.

Does anyone have any idea as to why this may have happened? I don't see how the website committed copyright infringement in any way shape or form...

I think black doom death metal is just plain stupid. go flame on me but i can't hear nothing but shit on those songs with everything in drop A or below. also it could've been without lyrics as you'd never hear them anyway.

Cette nuit j'ai rêvé que je mâchais ses yeux
Après avoir crevé par accès de furie
Ta replète panse d'helminthes blancs nourrie,
Trop prompte à déféquer le fruit d'un vit sanieux.

I don't know if this is playing along with the joke, or actually believes that they got shut down.

I also hope this isn't a reference to SOPA, because that didn't end up happening.

Almost got sad at this and excited at the top news here on UG.

Why'd that article have to be a joke? got me excited...

could have been about PIPA. and the fact that megaupload amongst others got shut down this exact way. Not SOPA.
