Nine years with Sword Chant

Hi everyone,
Lately, I had so much things to deal with that I didn't notice the anniversary of this site, a month ago. I know that you enjoy all the changes on this site - or the transition - done in this year
However, I planned nothing for this event but I would like to, for the next one. :)

If some bands or labels get some ideas we can plan together for the event taking place in a year.
