Super efficient and helpful

I find myself using this app a lot more than I expected. I’m actually at a festival this weekend, and saw a guy in the audience that I could swear is in a band that I listen to semi-regularly. Immediately pull up the app, clicked on the band photo (the thumbnail enlarges, and the quality of the photos are typically great), and I was able to confirm it was him all in about 15 seconds. Of course I immediately introduce myself and tell him how much I love his latest album. Decent dude!

If you’re a metalhead, you NEED this app

I’ve been a fan of the Metal Archives website for a few years now (I didn’t make an account until I found out they had an app, I just perused the site) and as soon as I found out they have an app, I was like ‘ARE YOU FREAKIN SERIOUS’ and I gotta say, I’m not disappointed. I was browsing the site from my phone and that gets annoying, having to zoom in and out an whatnot, but having an app makes that issue completely disappear. It’s super easy to use, very useful for finding new bands, and their information as far as I can tell is pretty much always 100% accurate. My only complaint with the app version is there’s no way to write your reviews, so I have to do it from the browser (there probably is a way to do it in the app but I’m pretty dumb so idk). Anyway, this app is amazing and I’m super grateful for it!

The essential metal music app

I’ve been reading the reviews on metal-archives from year one, and this app has changed my life for the better. Honestly the user experience of the app is more inviting than that of the website. I’d say I use this app several times a day, because I’m always looking for stuff I haven’t heard before. Pretty much the only app I need these days
