Bloggy Happenings

As always a number of things have happened in the music blog world. Bloggers have uploaded music and leeches have downloaded it often without acknowledging the bloggers effort even with a thank you. Joe Stumble from The Last Days of Man announced that his excellent blog had come to an end due to his life becoming busier with his move to New Zealand.

Check out it here, here and here.

Sean, who blogs Madblastsofchaos has put up NZ’s first speed metal band, Anigma’s tape on his new blog kiwiblastsofchaos. Another recommendation is checking out The Hasselhoff Experiment albums on Sam’s ratking blog.
