Thanks For a Great Four Years!

This is my farewell post for this great project that I’ve been working on the past four years. It’s been a great ride and I’ve met a lot of passionate fans and musicians but unfortunately the time and $ commitment is just too much and unless this site can actually become profitable it’s just too difficult to continue working on it. I put this message out on Facebook a few weeks ago and am reprinting it here.

Thanks everyone for a great four plus years. It’s been a long time coming but, as the publisher of Prog Metal Zone, I’ve decided to call it quits. It’s painfully obvious that a project like this will never grow to what it could be without significant time and $ behind it which I cannot afford on both ends. Gotta say it’s been amazing getting to promote so many great bands and solo artists especially the Indie ones that are doing it all themselves. I wish there was a better way to help them sustain their efforts and maybe someone else will pick up the banner to support the scene. I’ll continue to keep up this FB page with posts of new albums and any other news. All my best.

Thanks again guys, it’s been great working on this website and I hope to meet many of you at shows and festivals. Prog on!

    What sad news. I’ve been following the “new releases” page for a year now, and learned about so many new bands through your posts. But if you have done all this on your own I fully understand your decision. But I will for sure miss learning about new bands from your site.

    Thanks for the great work

    • Prog Metal Zone:
