Theme:The theme used for this site is Catch Box (Version 2.9.1) by Catch Themes Team. I chose this theme since it is simplistic in it’s design, but sill powerful in features. It keeps the site looking clean and modern, while providing easy to use functionality.
Style:The style of the website is based on two primary colors, grey and orange. I chose the color grey since the genre of the website is heavy metal music and this, along with black, is the primary colors associated with this subject. I chose orange as the compliment to this color since I needed text to stand out against the dark backgrounds and be easy on the eyes. The combination of these two colors play off each other to further the sites feeling and purpose.
