Main Message Boards
Our Main Message Boards, or "Chat Boards" are growing in membership and gaining a reputation as the coolest Metal Boards on the web. A unique well moderated environment of mutual respect, where personal attacks and flame wars are not tolerated. Almost all WMA activity and discussions currently take place on our Main Boards due to the advanced features, user-friendly interface and faster load times. Post your own topics, and fully automated polls in a wide range of metal related forums.
Shared Message Boards
Since the Alliance first created these boards, in early 2000, many other webmasters have added a mirror version of our boards to their sites, particularly the WMA Music Board - now the top heavy metal board in its category. These were previously our primary forum and are still shared with many other metal sites that were approved by our members. However, most WMA activity no longer takes place there, other than moderation and oversight. While these boards do lack the advanced user features of our main boards, and are often slow to load, the fact that they can be shared with many sites, more than compensates for its bare bones interface.
The World Metal Alliance offers several live chat rooms. Be sure to check our board for scheduled chat times or to schedule your own live chat.
This is the main chat room of the World Metal Alliance, due to it's advanced features, most live chat happens here.
Access to the WMA ROOM via our backup server in the event our primary server is down.
This room got it's name from it's all black interface, often used as an alternative to the WMA Main Room.
In the event that all other rooms are either full, or not working, this room may be used until service is restored.
