MetalSucks is a heavy metal music-themed news website. The site features reviews, interviews, information on latest metal releases and blog-like posts from the writers. It was founded in December 2006 by two friends who use the pen names Vince Neilstein and Axl Rosenberg. They chose those names because "if the father of a fourteen year old girl you met at an Avenged Sevenfold show is looking for you, and he thinks your name is 'Axl Rosenberg,' it's going to be a lot harder for him to track you down."
As of March 16, 2017, MetalSucks has declined in the Alexa Internet rankings by 2,315 spots. Its current ranking is 40,629, down from 37,268 in December 2016.
