News regarding the doom-metal site webhosting

Updated: 22/03/18
Well, it wasn't entirely painless, but has now successfully moved to what we anticipate will be a more stable and reliable hosting service. Apologies for any disruption over the last day or so while the migration was taking place.

Following the recent and rather disappointing non-service offered by our current hosting company, doom-metal will be moving to a different supplier imminently. No guarantees with such things, obviously, but we do expect it to be a straightforward and largely seamless transition, with only the forum temporarily unavailable for posting purposes only. This will prevent anyone accidentally publishing comments to the 'old' version - and hence losing them - while the internet catches up with where the 'new' version is.

Still available...

Please check the Merchandise page for up-to-date information on our top-quality exclusive Doom products.
