BLACKMETAL.COM is a very small company of only a few people (and you thought we were "corporate"?? as if we are Wal-mart or Costco something?!? Give us a fucking break!) and we remain prompt and attentive to your needs as a music consumer at all times.
The domain name, BlackMetal.com, was registered for the first time by Debbie Jaffe in 1997 with the idea from Elden M. The rest is history.
We have been offering
music via quality, efficient, service-oriented mailorder for over 16 years. BLACKMETAL.COM
specializes in unique CD releases and the best black metal and extreme music from the world over. We are dedicated to
releasing music and multimedia that fight the banal and mediocre in
today's watered-down mass media. We're dedicated to giving the computer
user and music listener something to think about instead of
anesthetizing them into complacency.
In 1997 we launched the BLACKMETAL.COM website on a dedicated server hosted at the -then- brand new Above.net in the exploding Silicon Valley. Above.net was so new the employees were still assembling their desks when I was given a tour of the facility. The very first shopping cart experience was a very low-tech experience, with a shopping cart that had very few features, but it got the job done! In 2002 a new upgraded server was purchased and installed, along with a new shopping cart. It ran on UNIX/Apache, which is the best! Today we introduce Ver. 3.0 with a new shopping cart with more features you've come to expect!
