THE METAL BAND WIKI is an online open-content collaborative METAL BAND data-base, that is, a voluntary association of individuals and groups working to develop a common resource of human knowledge. The structure of the project allows anyone with an Internet connection to alter its content. Please be advised that nothing found here has necessarily been reviewed by people with the expertise required to provide you with complete, accurate or reliable information.

That is not to say that you will not find valuable and accurate information in THE METAL BAND WIKI; much of the time you will. However, THE METAL BAND WIKI cannot guarantee the validity of the information found here. The content of any given article may recently have been changed, vandalized or altered by someone whose opinion does not correspond with the state of knowledge in the relevant fields. Note that most other encyclopedias / data-bases, and reference works also have similar disclaimers.


No formal peer review
