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!

Does exactly what I need.

Great app, it does exactly what it advertises, which is all I need it to do, all with no ads.

It would be even cooler it integrated with spotlight so you could search straight from spotlight, and I think it would look better if the top and bottom bars were the same colour as the rest of the app instead of white, but those are just nitpicks. It's a solid app and I'm glad to have it.

The best way to discover new Metal

This app is more user friendly than the desktop site honestly, and as a result it’s simply a delightful experience to take the daily dive into new releases. The app overall is extremely intuitive, the UI is pleasant, and nothing seems to be left out in terms of function. My favorite app on the App Store for sure!

Glad that the app helps you in your daily discoveries. Thank you very much for the kind words! 🤘
