Austin, TX, August 02, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- The original user-contributed metal site, LARM!, which had the brains to cease operation once black metal became popularized, has returned as an archive as part of the Dark Legions Archive, the net's longest-running metal site.
Thanks to a partnership between LARM! founder and Megiddo guitarist Chorazaim and writer, prankster and antagonist Vijay Prozak, content manager for the Dark Legions Archive, LARM! now takes up residence alongside the other metal reviews, interviews, columns, concert reviews, historical and philosophical information about heavy metal at the Dark Legions Archive.
"Through hard work by all parties, we have been able to maintain the archive in its original, raw and uncut form, complete with underground black metal references and Chorazaim's characteristic sense of humor, as well as all the contributions from black metal fans from when liking black metal was more a prospect of swimming against the grain, and not having your own populist black metal/emo crossover band," said Vijay Prozak. "Before Metal-Archives, before Wikipedia, there was LARM!, and we are proud to host this historical resource."

During the early years of metal on the post-AOL web, LARM! offered rare information and insight into the emerging black metal genre through user-contributed reviews. Because its administrator, Chorazaim, carefully vetted suggestions and the users were at that time more literate in the ideology and quality of black metal worth listening to, it offered insight and participation in a community more vital than contemporary black metal/emo hybrids.
About The Dark Legions Archive
The net's longest-running and oldest metal site began in 1988 as an offshoot of articles published in Houston's Rivethead magazine and on the Metal AE, the last outpost of the underground text file scene in the 1980s. Emerging from the world of BBSs, including FIDOnet connections to the internet, in 1992, the information on ANUS was at first on an FTP server, then a series of websites, before adopting ANUS.com in late 1995. Since then, the Dark Legions Archive has been the clearest voice for the ways and ideals of underground metal in its purest form.
The American Nihilist Underground Society has agitated since 1987 for a better political outlook through changing our psychology. We espouse nihilism, or the rejection of all inherent value, in favor of a Zen fascist situational logic in which relative values are measured in a holistic context, overcoming the problems that have baffled human psychology since Plato.
