Submissions

The Iron Skullet blog is always accepting submissions for possible inclusion in The Ultimate Synthwave Playlist (40K+ followers). Songs in the playlist receive around 300-500 plays per month. Due to the immense volume of submissions for the playlist, the Iron Skullet team asks a fee for our time processing your request and providing feedback on your music.

PLEASE NOTE: Payment does not guarantee inclusion to any playlists. You are paying for the time we invest in listening to your album and considering it for promotion. Once payment is received, the Iron Skullet blog will carefully listen to every song on the album and reply with concise feedback about the music within one week.

If the music is determined to meet the standards of the playlist, we will add the songs we select to the playlist on the following Friday.

Reviews
We strongly recommend you submit your album for inclusion in the playlist before requesting a review so that we can provide you with feedback and give you an estimate of a review score. Iron Skullet only reviews albums that are stylistically close to or relevant to the synthwave or traditional heavy metal genres, and we want to hear your music before accepting payment for a review. We will refund any payments for reviews of music that fall outside the genres we cover.

Payment guarantees an honest review, not a positive one
