Extreme Associates Run The Gauntlet

Heavy metal music website TheGauntlet.com, has launched an adult section in association with Extreme Associates.

"The Gauntlet is the second-largest metal site on the web right now," said Extreme's Matt Zane. "I met them originally through my band Society 1 and we've stayed in touch over the years. Recently, Extreme has been doing some stuff with them. Lizzie [Borden] did an interview with them, and then they shot this idea to me. It seemed like great idea, so we just decided to go for it."

Zane, who in addition to his porn credentials, is also known for his work in the music business, credits his background as to helping get the new venture started. "It's really my music contacts coming into play and opportunities being presented because of what I've been doing for the last six years when I haven't really been in the porn industry," said Zane.

According to Zane, the Extreme hookup is a first for a metal site. "I don't think there's actually ever been any metal site with an adult section," he said. "If this isn't the first," conjectured Zane, "it's definitely the biggest."

And the beat goes on.
