The best way to get reviewed in this magazine is by sending a CD or CD-R with your material (plus a biography and full contactdetails) to the address below. Vinyl and cassette are also accepted. Since LoM is reviewing on average 250 albums, demo's, DVD's each month we have no choice but to give absolute priority to review what has been send to us physically over stuff that has to be downloaded in any way whatsoever. All stuff that is physically send will be reviewed for sure.
Our core business is HARDROCK & METAL of any kind. Period. As a consequence we do not review stuff that has to be downloaded if it is not part of our core business. In other words, when looking for coverage if it is punk, hardcore/metalcore, EBM/industrial, poprock, fusion etc, (neo)Folk, then a physical promo is required. Mind you, please ask yourself first if you really want to be featured on a metal site before sending stuff that isn't hardrock or metal. We sure won't mind if you don't send it in.
Due to the monthly flood of promo material it is almost impossible to review everything thrown at us, so we will indulge in cherry-picking among what's been offered as download. Physical comes first. Next it is promo material offered though systems like iPool, Haulix or Hear The Music. Material offered through mailed .rar and/or .zip files, dropboxes, bandcamps, soundclouds and other such sources are put on the shelf and looked at last. If there is still room.
We do not review online streams of any kind of music.
Please do not flood our mailbox with unsolicited music and/or video files and/or material that has been released six months or longer ago.
Regarding interviews and/or other possible features: those are possible, but only if we really like what we hear. Sending your physical promo material will get you reviewed for sure, but is not a guarantee for an interview or other features.
It is possible to stream your new music through are pages. Get in touch for specific information and conditions.
You are always welcome to submit your news and concert dates (Dutch-Belgian dates / European festivals only please).
