Metal-Archives.com 2009

The old Web Source Script for Metal Archives doesn't work for me. So I made a new one. It uses the Album-Search on the Metal Archives Site, not Google, to find the right album.
It just needs the name of the Album to find the right values.

I just added a second Plugin. It searches for the band name. It will only find the first 50 albums of the matching artists.

I also added a third Plugin. This one searches for the song title.

It imports:
Artist, Album, Title, Year, Cover, Publisher

Note: You can only find real Metal with this Plugin.

Metal_Archives.src (2.19 KB)

Metal_Archives___Song.src (2.19 KB)

Metal_Archives___Artist.src (2.2 KB)

This isn't working for me. I follow the instructions, saving it to: C:\Documents and Settings*username*\Application Data\Mp3tag\data\sources, but it doesn't work (?)

I tried adding .srs and .ini and it still won't work :unsure:

Do you use Windows XP?
In Windows Vista you have to use an other path: C:\Users*username*\AppData\Roaming\Mp3tag\data\sources

Hi,

I'm using this web source script very often and it works fine in most cases, but I have a problem when I'm looking for split releases with multiple artists. In this case I just retrieve the songs of the first artist.

And sometimes it gets very often "user abort" errors on searching. But maybe this is more a hoster problem or is somewhere a timeout counter?

Would be great if someone could fix this issue, because I'm not very experienced with scripting.

thanks in advance

Sadly this doesn't work any more since Metal-Archives updated their layout.
Could someone please fix this?

Many thanks in advance.

Kind regards,

Seems to me that the old site has moved from www.metal-archives.com to v1.metal-archives.com. The following seems to work:

For all three .src files:

  • open in notepad
  • search/replace all "www.metal" with "v1.metal"
