MetalSucks is a heavy metal music-themed news website. It was founded in December 2006 by two friends who use the pen names Vince Neilstein and Axl Rosenberg.[1] They chose those names because "if the father of a fourteen year old girl you met at an Avenged Sevenfold show is looking for you, and he thinks your name is 'Axl Rosenberg,' it's going to be a lot harder for him to track you down."[2]

In April 2009, MetalSucks was awarded Metal Hammer's Web of Death Award for "Best Reviews" for its "honest, insightful, unpretentious – and fun – reviews."[3]

On October 4, 2009, MetalSucks found some controversy when one of the site's writers was accused of leaking the album Axe to Fall by Converge onto the internet prior to its official release.[4]

On December 15, 2009, MetalSucks did a digital-only release for The Binary Code album Suspension of Disbelief.[5]

On March 22, 2011, MetalSucks did a digital-only release for Meek is Murder's album Algorithms.[6]

On August 15, 2011, MetalSucks announced The Metal Suckfest, a two-day music festival to take place in Manhattan on November 4 and November 5 of that same year. Municipal Waste and Cynic were announced as headliners.[7] If the inaugural festival is a success, there are plans to make it an annual event.[8]
