We're bringing the Fort Rock project back! Last year we announced a project that lasted for technically four months where we posted album reviews, news, biographies and the occasional blog post for all the Fort Rock artists.
Last year, 24 bands performed at the 2016 Fort Rock festival, and between them all there were 124 albums, all of which got reviewed. We also wrote 22 biographies, one for almost all of the bands. Two of the smaller bands got excluded, not because we didn't care, but because we could not find enough information and did not hear back from the bands to get further information.
This year, we're deciding to do just that all over again! This year, there's still 24 bands, but there are only 109 reviews left for us to do. Some of the artists have already been worked on, though we think we may revisit some of the albums. That is because some of the reviews are extremely old, so old in fact one of them was the very first review to ever be written on Immortal Music.
So we have lots to do, and here is our plan! The reviews will begin on January 7, and then will go consistently every day until just a few days before the festival. Fort Rock is on April 29, and our goal is to have every album posted by the 26th. That gives us enough time to post one review a day up until the festival.
We also are going to try to post a biography once a week for the most part. There's only 20 weeks til Fort Rock, however, so we're going to double up at some point and give you two a week. That won't last very long though, that'll only be for about two weeks. There's currently no plan on when that will happen, and it actually may not. If things follow suit, I'll have a hard time finding information on a couple smaller bands, so we may not have to double up at all. We shall look into it and get back to you at a later date!
So try to get excited for the reviews to start, and expect the biographies to start very shortly! We're not going to tell you when they're going to start exactly, just expect them very soon!
Get excited, a lot is coming your way.
Who do you think we're going to start with? Let us know and see if you're right soon.
