We put a lot of effort into selecting these songs and updating our playlists because it’s important to keep them fresh, new, and exciting. Doing all this playlist curation is no easy task however. Our curators spend long hours monitoring the radio charts, new release schedules from other heavy metal record labels, and we pay particular attention to the newest releases by Eclipse Records bands which are currently spinning on commercial, satellite, college, and internet radio stations. We carefully examine sales and airplay reports on the various digital download services and streaming platforms such as Spotify, Apple Music, and Deezer. From time to time we also listen to what the fans tell us via email, and messages on Twitter and Facebook. Sometimes the best measurement of which songs we should include are simply a gut feeling, and sometimes we’ll throw in some bands we plan on working with as well! After we make a careful assessment of the different songs, we start making decisions, and during our music meeting on Friday mornings, we run down the list of possibilities, and the result is what we feel is the best metal playlist across all streaming platforms… Metal First!
