NOTTINGHAM, ENGLAND, February 01, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- For anyone who says that heavy metal is dead, all you have to do is load up Spotify, the world's biggest music streaming service, and you'll see that couldn't be further from the truth.
With over 20 million users around the world, Spotify has, until now, been filled with just the sort of apps you'd expect - pre-made playlists featuring the same overplayed pop hits. But, with the launch of the Earache Metalizer app from British extreme metal record label Earache Records, the silent majority have stood up and spoken, and it seems they're not such a minority after all - and certainly not silent.
The Earache Metalizer encourages fan interaction, allowing users to select their own preferred blend of metal using the app's virtual mixing desk and then watching as it creates their perfect playlist for them to rock out to and share with their friends through Facebook and Twitter.
Since it's launch last week, the Earache Metalizer has stormed into the top ten of Spotify's esteemed app chart with over 300,000 playlists generated and a mind-blowing ten million tracks played.
With such impressive stats for any new app, let alone one targeted at what many consider a niche market, it's high time people started taking heavy metal seriously.
See what all the buzz is about by trying the Earache Metalizer Spotify app now here.
Earache Records is an independent record label founded in 1987 in Nottingham, England.
