Moshfest 2007 / new site design

Moshfest 2007 After neglecting the Orlando METAL Awards website for many months, the recent MOSHFEST 2007 was the inspiration needed to give the website a little overhaul. Photos are slowly being posted within the OMA FORUM for everyone to checkout, and re-live the experience.

A PHP developer is still needed to help make the OMA site more functional for bands to be able to upload their music, and edit their web pages. So if anyone is out there who wants to step up for the challenge, and help build a "social site" focusing on Florida's METAL community, please email me at: matt@orlandoMETALawards.com
