Phillymetal.com was built quickly in 2009 as a response to amazing shows getting poor promotion. Its primary goal is to spread the word about upcoming events but also serves as a reasonably complete history of the bands, shows, venues, and people involved with the Philadelphia metal scene since its launch.
Version 2.0 of Phillymetal.com went online on 4/23/2014.
Chris Grigg built the original site and made it work... somehow. In version 2.0, he handled backend development, migration of the old database, and server administration.
