Since 2009 DCHeavyMetal.com has been the best place to find info on all things metal in the Washington DC, Baltimore and Northern Virginia area. This is a site dedicated to getting people more interested in the growing metal scene in this area, and to help make being a part of it easier for everyone: the bands, the fans, the venues and promoters too. I have a true passion for metal and I want to get readers of the site as excited about metal as I am! All sub-genres of metal are welcome here, even those I’m not particularly fond of have a home at this site. DCHM is no place for elitist exclusionary bullshit.
On DCHeavyMetal.com you’ll find concert reviews, album reviews, interviews, concert ticket give aways for upcoming metal shows in the area, and of course there’s the most popular page on the site, the upcoming metal concerts calendar.
If you just can’t get enough of DCHM on this site you can “like” us on Facebook (here) or follow me on Twitter at @MetalChris for regular updates, links, exclusive contests and day-of-show set times for area metal shows. If you just want alerts to new posts on the site you can follow @DCHeavyMetal on Twitter or follow us on Tumblr here or Google+. You can also see thousands of photos I’ve shot of bands at concerts around the area on my Flickr page here or check out the hundreds of live videos I’ve posted to YouTube here. I also take photos of bands on my phone while I’m out at shows (which is quite often) and post them to Instagram here.
You can email me, Metal Chris, at DCHeavyMetal@Gmail.com Feel free to tell me about an upcoming metal show I haven’t listed yet or if you’d like us to consider your band’s album for review on DCHM or if you have any other questions pertaining to the site.
I write everything on this site except some of the album reviews which are usually written by either Grimy Grant or Tal. You can click their names to see their posts. Tal also has her own blog which you can find here and you can follow Grant on Twitter at @jgrantd
I hope you enjoy the site enough to keep coming back. Stay metal everyone and support the scene you’re a part of!
