This is the original (and always exclusive) content submitted by Staff members, as well as regular users. The most important here are albums reviews, over 7500 now. Interviews and Song by songs offer the insight into artists' thoughts and clarify the ideas behind their music. On the other hand, Articles and Concert reviews provide the look at the metal scene from the fans' perspective. Photo galleries feature thousands of exclusive concert photos, and Funny stuff is... well, just some funny stuff.

The number of events to display.
Only show events from these cities. One city per line. Note that some american cities also have a state abbreviation attached. You can try to match all possible variations: 'Calgary', 'Calgary, AB', 'Calgary, ALB'.
This will show all events from the country, so leave it empty if you want to filter by cities of the same country. However, you can combine countries and cities - for example, if you need to show all events from Germany, plus Amsterdam. One country per line.
Only show events from these states. This will mostly work for USA and Canada, and not in every case (only when states are entered for events), so use it together with cities. 2 or 3 letter abbreviations only! If there are two different abbrevations (AB, ALB), enter both.
