First of all I don't consider my actions to get my bandname out as begging.
Sorry if you experienced it as such.. But in all my actions I try to be courteous as much as possible. Trying to find the perfect way to reach people that like the sub genre Metal..
Next to this, I only PM'ed approx 15 people with an interest for Metal music.
As a non signed band it's hard to stand out without any form of promotion, and my experience in directly asking (requesting) people to check out our music has proven most succesfull.
I am the first to admit enthusiasm vs **bleep** is a thing I have to be carefull about. So please believe me if I state, my PM to you was not ment as harassement, I considered it as a kind request if you (a Metal music lover) would please take a few minutes to check us out.. Hope you can also see it from my point of view,
Again thanks for your honest opinion and fair warning.
