We’re not ones to brag here at the Syndicate – what are we talking about? Sure we are! As some of you know, Metal Insider is one of two blogs run by the Syndicate, the other being comedy site The Laugh Button. We’ll pause here for a few seconds while you bookmark those two pages… OK, now that that’s over, we’re excited to report that while both sites have had great years of growth, Metal Insider set a new record for itself at the end of 2012.
When Metal Insider started off a little over three years ago, it started off as little more than an idea by passionate metal fans to bring their knowledge of the industry to the metal blogosphere, which has plenty of news, but had been short on insight from those in the music industry. Since then, it’s grown almost every month, quickly becoming a must-visit destination for metal music news, interviews, analysis and gossip. Happily, we can report that our biggest month yet by a comfortable margin occurred in December. Be it exclusive contests with artists like Dream Theater, breaking news, the announcement of our co-sponsorship of the Metal Alliance tour, or continued growth in our social media properties, it all added up to a great way to end the year. We’ll now pause for another few seconds for you to like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter and follow us on Tumblr.
Thanks to all for reading the site – we have a feeling that 2013 is going to be even better!
