What is Friedhof Magazine?
Friedhof Magazine is an independent, extreme music magazine, firstly, created in a printed version but actually a digital one, active since 2002.
How can I become a writer for Friedhof Magazine?
Friedhof Magazine is always ready to provide opportunity to new enthusiastic, committed writers.
Once you get my material, how long will I have to wait before I can see my review published?
It takes around one/one and a half month for the review to be available online. This is due to the massive amount of CD’s we receive on a weekly basis.
And what if I don’t want to wait that long?
Simple: Don’t send us your stuff.
I have sent my press release / news and they have not been published, why?
Friedhof Magazine is a independent Extreme Music Magazine and therefore has its own editorial policy. Not all press releases / news are published and we do not give any kind of explanation about what we publish or not.
I’ve seen CD’s with a very low rating in Friedhof Magazine. Aren't you afraid they (labels, bands, etc.) might not send any more stuff?
No, the management at Friedhof Magazine gives complete freedom to its writers when it comes to CD reviews. We don't need to please any label or band. The record companies we work with are aware of this. Those who'd rather give higher ratings in order to get more CD’s may do so. We don’t.
Why rating cds?
Because we think it's a good way for readers to get an accurate idea of what they can expect from the album. We see this as an additional source of information, other than the text.
Sometimes I disagree with your ratings or reviews of the CD’s…
Well, that’s normal and we accept it. Our reviews are just personal opinions given by our writers, and the management of Friedhof Online Magazine does not necessarily share them.
Who is responsible for the management of Friedhof Online Magazine?
Néstor T. (firstname.lastname@example.org), Luis T. (email@example.com), Manu M. (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Cristina P. (email@example.com).
Is there any genre you don’t review?
Yes, we don’t review Punk, Heavy metal, Happy Metal, Power Metal or anything related to that genre. We review Extreme Metal, in its whole range.
How often do you update the site?
Our commitment is to give the readers something different to read every day. Currently news are updated every few horus so there is always something new to read. Moreover, there are reviews, interviews, songs, videos and a complete agenda among other things.
