Shellife | Shellife | Music | 2010
Shellife is the child of My Bloody Tracker and Twee.se, it's a specialized music/music video tracker that doesn't allow any "mainstream" music to be uploaded. If you're looking for Lady Gaga or Radiohead, I'm afraid your search will not yield any results. Other than the "Popular Music" restriction, this is pretty much a general music tracker, but you will find an abundance of Electronic, Shoegaze, Dream Pop, Indie, Experimental, Punk, ect..
Every user has the ability to upload their own torrents upon registration, but the Uploaders User Class have freeleech on every torrent but are asked actively to support the tracker by seeding everything they download. Also Legends which are ex-staff have this ability too.
Shellife has some very special features, they have Freeleech & free torrents. Freeleech should be self-explanatory, but free torrents are well....free. You will not receive any download or upload for this torrent. Free torrents are designated by the original Uploader. Shellife has a bonus system, where you gain bonus points from either seeding, filling requests or when you receive thanks from another user. Bonus points can be used to either purchase upload credit or invites. Also we have Fanzines for download and there is a site radio & recommendations/other artist you may like which appears after a search for a torrent has been executed.
For Shellife being a niche tracker it has a very active userbase, both on the site & the forums.

Shellife's aim is quality over quantity, both in their users and available torrents. So while invites here are freely obtained, finding someone with account is the hard part. Occasionally, but not often the site does have open registrations.
