We have news! You may have noticed that things have been quiet on this page (and on the MNO site). It is because we have made a change.

We are excited to announce that we have rolled the album reviews back into our long-established site, the aforementioned Skullsnbones.com, where we will be able to deliver cutting edge content to the masses.

We believe that this move at this time - along with an update to the site’s design that will display the reviews more prominently - will allow us to provide greater support to the metal community at large.

Please check out www.skullsnbones.com and like our page at https://www.facebook.com/skullsnbonespage !

The Mission of SkullsNBones.com is to be the singular authority for all things related to and affecting heavy metal music and culture.
