About 16 Tonnes

Welcome fellow Metal Heads!

Here at Sixteen Tonnes we love music, we love it so much that we decided to dedicate some of our time (between work and home commitments) to posting and reviewing music released by our favorite new bands and artists. You’ve probably noticed that most of the music on the site tends to lean toward the heavy side of this precious art form. Well that’s because we like our music to kick us in the face, scare the crap out of us or simply invoke the primal urge to swing our (thinning) hair in a ridiculous windmill motion!

The main aim of our blog is to support new or lesser known bands and artist who are fighting for exposure. You may occasionally find a review of one of the “Heavy weights” but we’ll try to keep it to the albums that we simply couldn’t ignore. If you are in a band or represent a band/artist and you would like us to feature or review your work then please get in touch. You can send us the info through the form on the contact page. We are always on the lookout for new music.

We try to reply to everyone within 48 hours but please be aware that we get a lot of requests so it may take a while for us to get in touch. If we like the music then we’ll post it on the site. If we have the time then we may even write a review but we cant promise anything so don’t be disappointed if you don’t get the answer you were hoping for.

A few rules when sending us your info:

  • Please make sure you send a contact email address so we can reply (You wouldn’t believe how many people forget).
  • Send us a link to your website. This can be your Myspace, Bandcamp, Last FM, Soundcloud etc.
  • Please don’t send audio files to us by email because they’ll clog up our inbox. Send us a link to download or listen to your tunes.
  • Make sure you have some kind of artwork so we can post it on the site.
  • We WILL NOT post links to illegal downloads so please don’t ask.

A final note: A big thank you to all the bands who have contributed and to the readers who follow our blog.
