    Known Issues
    Sometimes metal-archives uses Google engine to respond search requests.
    So at this period you may see the script link "@Encyclopaedia Metallum" above some rock bands, too. Such as King Crimson. By clicking the link you may get the bands who cover King Crimson works such as Asgaroth or something. Also you may see the link above some rock bands group.
    As a whole the script page fetch method will look for "Not Found" terms instead of exact band names.

    TODO List
    - To Update automatically.
    - The ability to fetch results from metal-archives search engine.

    Neat! I had to go look at your profile to find a band to test this script on. Not much of a metalhead myself. The only thing I find odd about this script is that it adds that link to ALL artist pages whether they're metal artists or not. I don't know about that! Added to the overview anyway, thanks! :)

    metal-archives, is supporting a variety of genres such as metal subgenres, ambient, folk, neofolk and so on. So it will be difficult to find out whether the artist is available on metal-archives.com or not. And I think there's no way to fetch result from metal-archive.com search engine.
    Anyway I'll try it out, thanks ;)

    I'm sure it's not a problem for folks who want to use it. I just thought it was... odd. :)

    We ran to the sounds of the thunder
    We danced among the lightning bolts
    And tore the world asunder

    Sweet, thanks! I'll get this added later today. :)

  • It would be good if it worked also on profiles of users. ;) But it's just my opinion. ;) Script still is useful a lot. :D

    There's a Firefox extension called "Last Metal Archives" which adds metal-archives link next to all artist names on every page of last.fm. But M letter links in long columns makes no sense, I think.
    In next versions the script may have an option to do this in a smarter way.
    thanks ;)

    Script Minor Update is available. (Thanks to The_Thomas)
    I do apologize for long sleep!
    Sometimes metal-archives search page will be diverted on Google. I'll make the script compatible in few days. The script is now compatible.
