Deathdomain is still looking for a couple of more members to the staff. Everything from album reviews, concert reviews, interviews and random rants associated with metal goes!


  • A somewhat good knowledge of the English language is always a good start.
  • A genuine interest in Metal and writing. We do however not demand any specific
    amount of reviews/texts to be written every month in order to stay on staff.

Still interested?

Well, then send an e-mail with a sample of your writing and some personal info to:
