Arctic Drones is an independent online music magazine with a focus on a wide range of alternative music, dedicated to generating coverage for independent artists and labels. The range of covered genres includes instrumental rock, experimental rock, post-rock/metal, progressive rock/metal, djent, drone, noise rock, sludge metal, post-hardcore, shoegaze, ambient, neoclassical, electronica, IDM, downtempo, acoustic, indie, dream pop and folk among others. We highlight up-and-coming as well as established bands through music news, reviews, interviews, exclusive premieres, streaming playlists and more.
We are now offering a range of advertising packages including banner ads and partnerships in order to cover the incidental running costs of the website. But first, take a look at the information below for some questions you might have.
How do I know if my advert will be accepted?
A core part of our existence is to promote only the music that we like and think should be heard by more people. Adverts are no exception in this sense. We will not be recommending an album, a concert, or any other music service that we don’t truly believe is worth our readers’ time or money. But if and once we agree on mutual taste, we will do our best to promote your music, event or campaign. Just send us your music or event info and please give us some time to check it out and get back to you.
What type of advertising do you offer? Where will my ad be placed in the magazine?

How about advertising rates?
