As we sit in 2016, would you believe that those stealing media may actually become the minority soon? Physical presentation has reached new heights with bands and labels packaging comic books, videos, bonus tracks, virtual reality content and puzzles; not to mention the vinyl explosion of gatefold limited editions in various colors and sizes. But outside of the physical media lure comes the onslaught of the hook-line-and-streamer music industry. Read Eric Compton's "Streaming Metal Option" here… [Full Column Link]

Two kings have emerged in this Digital Wasteland - AMAZON'S PRIME MUSIC and SPOTIFY. Two of Maximum Metal's scribes are paying subscribers to these streaming services.

Maximum Metal saw the conflict and difficulty with purchasing heavy metal and hard rock in the 00s and compiled a feature called "Buying Metal". Now, in 2016, we are launching a new feature called "Streaming Metal", another resourceful list that will compile all of the options available to music fans to stream metal legally either for free or as a paid subscriber.
