Editorial: January 2014

Well we made it. One year on and we're still here. It's been a good year for us as we've essentially gone from nothing to a voice that seems to carry some clout!

Over the past year we've had over 500 posts on the website and over 75,000 hits – which has vastly exceeded my expectations. So I'd like to thank the promoters, labels, bands, pr people and the IVM writers for making this past year worth it.

As you will have undoubtedly seen we have a compilation available to download for free featuring 20 great tracks. This was something I always tried to put forward at the publication that I was writing for prior to starting this, and it never rely went anywhere, so I’m rather pleased that I've ticked that box this year. So please make sure you get a copy from our bandcamp page (see the interactive section of the menu or click the album art in the side bar). Despite the fact the album is totally free I've heard that it's already up on other download websites, please do make sure you download it from us and get it in your choice of MP3 or lossless formats – why settle for anything less?

I won't lie... all in all this past year has been a tough one with having to balance my day job, personal life and the responsibility of running IVM. But I think I've hit a good ratio now and things don't seem too daunting now. But as always it's down to the support of all the readers and the industry people who take stock of us and have continued to invest their time and effort in us as an outlet.

So where do we go from here? Well that would be telling. You can rest assured there will be another compilation album this time next year. We will also try to get more live photos and video pieces up for you this year. And we will continue with sporadic features such as the Arts Of Darkness interviews, as well as some new ones. But for now I have a holiday booked so this month may be a little quieter than usual, but be patient as we have another great year lined up!

Finally, if you are interested in writing for IVM please direct your attention to the tab at the top of the site marked 'Writing For IVM'. Especially if you are a film buff.
