You're welcome to submit tunes, but note that Six Noises:

  • only features underground music
  • is interested in NZ underground music first and foremost
  • isn't interested in ever hearing another melodic or tech-heavy death metal album
  • won't review a 'stream' of your release (digital downloads or physical copies thnx)
  • probably won't email you back; sorry, mate, I'm busy.
