[Fabryka] Review and interview opportunities

Fabryka Industrial Rock & Metal Encyclopedia's (formerly Fabryka Music Magazine, 19 years online all together) review and interview services have been paid services since April 26th, 2011 (*why they're not free, read about at the bottom of this page). These are handled by Katarzyna 'Draconina' Górnisiewicz, the magazine founder and CEO. I've been writing music reviews since 2003 and offering paid, professional music analysis since 2011. My music reviews as well as interview questions are written specifically for bands/labels' promotional purposes, to be included in their presskits, online stores, shared online etc. and to underline what's best in your music. However, if I notice your music could be still improved to give it the best musical expression (performance, production, mastering), I won't forget to mention it in the review too.

Biggest advantage? Besides receiving a professional opinion, every review signed by me (and Fabryka IR&M Encyclopedia) will be entirely permitted to use for your promotional and commercial purposes so that you can own it legally, and share worldwide which is thanks to a non-exclusive license (you must credit the reviewer and Fabryka IR&M Encyclopedia name). Very few reviewers offer such a good deal because such a writing is a copyrighted material.

MINI/SHORT REVIEWS - part 1 and part 2
DETAILED REVIEWS with a player - click

Submissions: Please make sure you read which genres I can review. Email me a link where I can stream exact songs, along with your contact email but don't attach mp3s unless requested. No Spotify or other subscription platforms please - I don't use them. I'd rather stream the full album/single than 5 seconds of it. When I decide I can positively review your music, I will contact you and we'll process with the review order. If I don't like your music, I'll shortly explain why it doesn't qualify for the review. It is nothing personal but a matter of an experience and a bit of a personal taste to deliver the most reliable judgment.

Preferred genres (guitar driven music): industrial rock and industrial metal releases, but also progressive metal, groove metal, hair metal, heavy metal, math metal, metalcore, djent also dark ambient and retrowave music, eventually jazz/funky. Other music styles are not recommended due to lack of experience and my dislike for improvising. I don't wish to sign under a writing I'm not satisfied with. Please do not submit remixes, covers, live versions and hooks as well as not mastered demos.
