In this June 2010 edition, we’re excited to present some really good fresh trackers (really!) that joined into the madness of the BT scene. We’ve discovered two new speedy ’scene/0sec’ trackers (MAT & DarkAlliance), as well as some excellent ‘niche’ sites (karaoke music; comic books; games) and even a couple of new adult trackers.
Featured Scene Trackers…
- — Category: General (Scene/0day) Codebase: TBDev (2009-FE)
- — Signup: www.midnightarab-torrents.org/signup.php
Midnight Arab Torrents (MAT) officially debuted on May 14th, although they were in developmental stages since March. Don’t be fooled by the name - MAT actually has little to do with “Arabic/Indian” content; instead here’s a tracker that serves up all the popular scene, non-scene and 0day releases. Over 2,500 new active torrents have been added since May 17th (the site now indexes a total of 3,865 torrents). Open registration will end once MAT hits the 5K member mark.
Our prediction — We’re impressed! MAT has an autobot to upload releases to the tracker from sceneaxx, and pretimes are nothing short of amazing. At least 100 new torrents are added on any given day - all of which are seedbox-hosted. MAT is based on a highly customized TBDev 2009 Final Edition codebase and contains some unique features (games, bonus system, betting). All torrents are announced in the shoutbox on the main page; here you’ll be able to tell just how fast (and often) new content arrives:
MAT also has its own complete IRCd services:
- Server: 126.96.36.199
- Cmd: /server -m 188.8.131.52
- Channels: #MidnightArab-Torrents (main channel), #MAT-Games, #MAT-Trivia, #MAT-Blackjack, #MAT-Support
- Special Channels: #MAT-Pre, #MAT-Trace — Pre for MAT’s announced releases; and tracers (torrent races) of other tracker’s pretimes comparatively. Both are open to all MAT members.
- — Category: General (Scene) Codebase: TBDev (2009-FE)
- — Signup Link: http://darkalliance.co.uk/signup.php
The DarkAlliance could easily be called Dark Horse since it’s a tracker that very few torrenters have even heard about, yet possesses some decent sceneaxx and a ton of fresh torrents. In truth DarkAlliance is an improved version of their old site Fatal-Attraction.in which began back in mid-November 2009.
Our prediction — Online since 2010-05-27, DarkAlliance already indexes 1,530 active torrents (many of which are double-seedbox hosted). Pretimes are not yet announced for each torrent (although there’s room for this), but on any typical day some 200 new torrents are added to the tracker (both spam and non-spam scene releases).
- — Category: General Codebase: TBDev
- — Signup Link: http://torrentspot.org/signup.php
TorrentSpot lists just 25 torrents since opening on 2010-05-17. Sounds bad? It is. But worse yet, there are just 32 total seeds among those torrents. Torrentspot - even with a catchy domain name - is assuredly not the place to ’spot’ many torrents. At least not yet.
Our prediction — Despite a solid design and a visually appealing TBDev layout, this one badly needs a seedbox to host torrents on (sorry, but 3KB/s DL rate on 1-seed torrents from .ro IPs won’t win TorrentSpot many friends). Perhaps we reviewed this one a little too soon; there’s always time for them to turn things around.
- — Category: General (English) Codebase: TBDev
- — Signup Link: http://www.sharptorrents.com/signup.php
SharpTorrents opened to the public on 2010-05-08 (one month ago) and indexes 2,070 active torrents with 1,035 members. This tracker has a slick, easy-to-browse design and decent pretimes. All new accounts come with 3GB upload credit.
Our prediction — One of the biggest problems for new “general” trackers is the lack of ability to hold onto active members. Even if a tracker is above-average, the competition is simply too fierce. Although SharpTorrents has 2K+ torrents, there are only 15 total leechers among all of them - a statistic which suggests that only a tiny fraction of their 1,035 member-base are actually visiting & using the tracker. Only time will tell if this one will rise to the occasion.
- — Category: General (RO/EN) Codebase: TBDev
— Signup Link: *You’ll find it
It would appear that BITsArena officially launched on 2010-05-13, but we can’t be sure. Tracker stats aren’t reported, but there are 396 active torrents (using 3 distinct torrent browse pages - main browse, music, and adult). All new signups receive 10GB upload credit.
Our prediction — …and another major issue for new “general” trackers (especially Romanian ones) is the inability to find dedicated uploaders. Often these sites don’t have any form of sceneaxx, nevermind an autobot to link it to the tracker itself. As is the situation with BITsArena, there’s a distinctive lack of consistency to the uploads. Some days there are 6-10 new torrents; others there are 25 or more.
- — Category: Karaoke (Music) Codebase: TS-SE v7.0
- — Signup: http://karaoke-world.co.uk/signup.php?
Karaoke torrents are eerily difficult to find on private trackers (even W&W don’t have any) - that is, until now. Karaoke-World is a brand new tracker for all things karaoke-related. Officially opened on 2010-05-21, they list 427 torrents and most of the content pertains to 10-CD series and ’sets’ for SunFly, Sound Choice, Easy Karaoke, Zoom and other popular CD+G disc releasers.
Our prediction — Aside from offering an untold amount of karaoke music (the torrent count doesn’t do any justice to how much stuff is really available here), they also provide related software, players & apps to create them. Staff members are well-versed in the karaoke entertainment industry, and it shows.
**Updated Stats (August 4th, 2010)
- Members: 752
- Torrents: 977
- Seeders: 2,104
- Leechers: 137
- Peers: 2,241
- Forum Threads/Posts: 96 / 427
- — Category: Ratio-Free (Mixed) Codebase: TBDev
- — Signup Link: Not available at last check.
TBdown is a no-ratio tracker specializing in tutorials, documentaries, games, PDA/mobile, programs, OSes, special releases, and cartoons. Everything is seedbox hosted, and there are more than 1,800 torrents to choose from.
Our prediction — Wow, a broad-content tracker that’s not afraid to stay away from mainstream movies & TV releases. All signs suggest that we just might have a winner here. So far, the only method that we’ve discovered for getting into TBdown is by being a PU at Waffles.fm (at this link).
- — Category: Comic Books Codebase: TBDev (2009-FE)
- — Signup: http://comicbt.com/signup.php
Online since May, ComicBT (CBT) currently lists 393 active torrents and 760 members. Two things make this site cool: 1) - They’re actively recruiting comic book scanners to supply unique content. 2) - Torrent ‘details’ pages contain comic book cover scans and a detailed description about each release or series. In addition to comics, there are also some movies & music (basically anything related to and/or adapted from a comic book is allowable).
Our prediction — Realistically, one only needs an account at What and/or Waffles to enjoy comic book torrents (they both literally have thousands). If these mega-music trackers are unavailable (unattainable) to you, then ComicBT is your kind of place.
- — Category: Games (All) Codebase: TBDev (2009-Final Edition)
- — Signup Link: http://pirogames.com/signup.php
Officially launched to the public a month ago on 05-05-2010, PiroGames runs on a specialized version of TBDev with various “modifications” to enhance the tracker frontend & user-interactivity. Called “TBDev 2009 Final Edition”, we’re beginning to see a fair amount of new trackers using this cool sourcecode (there’s 4 in this article alone).
Thus far at PiroGames, there’s 393 active torrents and 447 members. As a games tracker, content is wide-reaching and includes PC-ISOs and console releases (PS1, PS2, XBOX, Wii, handhelds) but there’s also a good selection of Android & iPhone stuff available.
Our prediction — Despite the fact that PiroGames has had almost zero exposure and is still virtually unknown, there’s a fair bit of activity going on here. We particularly enjoy each torrent’s details page; which includes poster art, descriptions and even sometimes game trailers. All new signups receive 25GB upload credit to start with, and all new torrents are seedbox hosted.
- — Category: Music (Electronica) Codebase: Gazelle
- — Signup Link: Not open directly for registration.
XTC is brand new ratioless tracker based on Gazelle RC2 and specializing in electronic music, music videos, and MDVDRs. It is still in early beta stages, but the site and tracker are up and running pretty smoothly now. A hit and run system is in the works to replace ratio monitoring (seeding rules: seed for 120 hours after completing the download).
At this time, signups to XTC are not open to the public (recruitment can be found through Waffles, here - and at What.CD, here). XTC has an IRC interview channel for those who want to apply for an invite directly:
- — Category: Adult (HD) Codebase: TBDev (NexusPHP)
- — Signup: http://www.hdnow.org/signup.php
HDNoW is the first (and only) Asian adult-only HD tracker, with a focus on JAV (Japanese Adult Video). On signup, visitors/members are able to select the English language option from the dropdown menu that’s displayed on the right side of the site. HDNoW currently indexes just 83 torrents and 7,226 members. **Update:
** Tracker is presently offline, check back later.
History: Began as HDNew back in late May, and recently settled on HDNow.org. Last week there were 520 active torrents, but it appears as though they ran into a database problem in which many new members were purged. The number of torrents also suffered a drastic setback as they lost an estimated 470 older torrents, but the torrent count is beginning to rebound nicely.
Our Prediction — Thumbs up, if Asian HD pr0n is your cup of tea and if this tracker can stay online. Unquestionably this tracker will (has) become a huge hit in China - HDNoW has already established some incredible peer stats: 7,388 seeders and 5,346 leechers, and that’s on a paltry 83 active torrents. TIP: You’ll need to download something within the first 48 hours of activating the account, or else it’s bye-bye.
- — Category: Adult (Hungarian) Codebase: TBDev
- — Signup: http://private-spice.org/signup.php
Self-claimed as being online since 2010-06-01, Private-Spice is a brand-new adult tracker with 1,681 members and 276 torrents. This one’s Hungarian by nature, but for the most part they index common scene releases, small individual siterips & clips, some hentai, and other stuffs.
Our Prediction — Three things need to be said: 1) There are already some truly amazing Hungarian trackers out there; 2) General Pr0n trackers abound our interwebs, and are regularly open for signups; 3) Most ‘true’ scene trackers already cover much of the same content — So, what makes Private-Spice special? Nothing much that we could see.
- — Category: Adult (Mixed) Codebase: TBDev
- — Signup: http://pornhive.org/signup.php
Nearly everything at PornHive is ’scene’ although it’s not all non-spam scene. There’s a mix of XXX-XviD (you know, those 2CD/3CD retail DVDR rips), as well as XXX-0Day (various webrip clips in WMV container, usually between 100-600 MB in size). Online since 2010-05-27, PornHive lists 341 active torrents and 592 members.
Our Prediction — Surely there are better adult trackers out there but if you fancy scene stuff, PornHive’s turning out to be quite respectable. Plus, everything is freeleech for the next two months.
- — Category: General (Filipino) Codebase: TS-SE v7.0
- — Signup: http://pinoytorrents.net/signup.php?
PinoyTorrents is a newer Filipino tracker (that began in Feb. 2010) with 1,953 torrents and 2,672 members. Content is unique, to say the least - here you’ll find literature & magazine scans (FHM, Maxim, Playboy, RED, etc - in authentic Filipino release format); music (audio, karaoke & musicvids); movies (adult & Pinoy specific releases); TV (ABS CBN, PBA, GMA…). All torrents are freeleech until October 18th, 2010.
Our prediction — PinoyTorrents is not a nation-specific tracker that indexes common scene releases or English content - if you’re not Filipino then nothing here will interest you whatsoever. We give it a ‘thumbs up’ since we haven’t even heard of another Filipino tracker in existence, plus the fact that they put up some impressive stats, peering & traffic numbers.
- — Category: General (Scene/Danish) Codebase: TBDev
- — Signup Link: http://easybits.org/signup.php
EasyBits so happens to be a reincarnation of the old DanishTorrents.org tracker. Online for about 3 weeks now, EasyBits lists 283 active torrents. Lots of stuff here for Danish and Nordic users, including movies (mostly DVDR & XviD) that contain custom subtitles (DKsubs, nordic subs).
Our prediction — EasyBits should do well in Denmark and beyond, but there’s not much here for the English crowd (that can’t be found just about anywhere else). Then again, EasyBits is not trying to appeal at an international level. TIP: Read the Rules before signing up.
- — Category: General (Italian) Codebase: XBTiT
- — Signup Link: here
Priv3.net is a new Italian tracker that launched (or re-launched) on 2010-05-29. Lists 420 members and 110 torrents.
Our prediction — English torrenters might want to avoid this one; most everything at Priv3 pertains to Italian torrent releases (movies - HD, DVDR & XviD) and TV shows.
http://psybrazil.net — A new tracker with Brazilian? music. 109 members and just 29 torrents since May 13th.
http://www.diamondsrooms.com — The new locale for Passion-Musique, a French music tracker. Signups are open on the 1st, 15th & 30th of each month.
http://www.media-sharing.com — 107 members & 105 torrents (all are external/public trackers?)
http://www.bittoxic.com — We reviewed this tracker in the past back when they indexed public torrents. The tracker is now entirely internal (private) only.
Sad panda Says:
Midnightarabtorrents and darkalliance look EXACTLY the same. Either they’re run by the same guys or most likely, they have no coders and use default setup.
Sad panda Says:
And another thing, arabtorrents has 43 users of 5000, yet they still have the 48hours waiting time on new torrents! WTF!
Happy Bear Says:
Sad panda Says:
Uh, yeah. Read the article
“In truth DarkAlliance is an improved version of their old site Fatal-Attraction.in which began back in mid-November 2009.”
Ang Gry Says:
Yo .. really appreciate the posts and all, but calm down with over hyping the “sceneaxx” yeh.. it’s not difficult to get.
That DarkAlliance, is Fatal-Attraction reborn.
storethefiles.net is new general tracker from june too
No more wait times at Midnightarab-torrents.org & all new users get 2GB upload amt for saying hi in shoutbox & 1GB for posting introduction in forums
Midnight Arab Torrents seems Cool Tracker. Nice design and nice smileys all across the site.
IRC Community is friendly too. Nice games on the site. I won 350 Points on MAT Slot Machine Game.
Lots of give aways and good bonus system.
I do not see any wait time there as earlier stated.
Good Site….wish MAT good LUCK
MAT thanks FSF Crew and Sharky for listing MAT with this Amazing Introduction.

A dude Says:
No prediction on XTC, just thought I’d point that out.
thanks for the great review for karaoke world sharky m8
what we have on the site is only part we are still uploading more collections
we are young but we are karaoke lovers and want to make sure we have everything our members need and want
thanks again m8
just want to say a big thank you sharkey for the nice words you said about http://karaoke-world.co.uk/ just to add all our karaoke are hosted on a seedboxes too
thanks again m8
thanks sharky….it seems like many of the staff members of trackers abt which u wrote liked it!!!nice one…
Just signed up to http://pirogames.com
Amazing speeds, great layout, and 25gb to start off with.
Cant ask for more.
Thanks Sharky, TBdown looks interesting. Great to see some niche trackers.
There are so many scene/general trackers out there that the new ones, even those that come in with tremendous hype have trouble keeping active members. Most of their torrent pages end up looking like binary code; a lot of 1’s and 0’s on the seeder/leecher columns.
thanks m8 and any one plz come and join http://karaoke-world.co.uk/
to a great site and going to be the biggest karaoke site on the net
like mastermix said all on seedboxs fast speeds
karaoke world looks great! IPTorrents is also good for karaoke, they’ve got a lot of good packs that aren’t on any other tracker.
when the hell is someone going to do just a dedicated general scene music tracker? Waffles and What are impossible to get into. Scenesound disappeared 1 week ago and Filemp3 never has any openings.
Someone kindly start a scene music tracker pls!
what.cd isn’t impossible to get into, you only need to go through an IRC interview and you’re in
how do you download karaoke stuff, if your karaoke machine is one of those mic only machines? Ya know where you plug in the rca’s into the video/audio slots on your tv, and voila! You have karaoke party time! I would love to be able to add to my parents collection of songs if at all possible.
junebug all you need to do is get a karaoke burning software which we have on our site then burn the files you have downloaded onto disc and most dvd players allow you to play cd+g files if you need any more info please feel free to sign up to http://karaoke-world.co.uk and i will gladly talk you through it
Thank alot, I’ll be taking a look at these
well i signed up for http://torrentspot.org its not to bad it brand new so what do you expect looking at the most recent uploads and the recent speeds i think this tracker has the potential to grow big time. i think people tend to get carried away when it comes to torrent sites. Sometimes a little to far lol. I for one dont care if one of the sites im on post a torrent 1 or 5 it really all around the same time. Remember sometimes its the little trackers we forget about that grow and becomes the ones that are harder then hell to join.
wow little drunk right now the 1 or 5 was meant to say the 1st one to post the torrent or the 5th one to post it lmao.
I have joined Torrentspot.org and am uploading a bunch of torrent on a seedbox.
I have also become a Sysop there, so drop by and say Hi =).
al those TBDev codebases, the code of that stinks…..
Hmm the new torrent sites look good! Found a new site to upload to, fed up of megaupload giving me rubbish points:
Fileserve!! Love you
DA thanks FSF and Sharkey for that amazing review and prediction.
@ SAD PANDA - yes DA and MAT look exactly the same as they are the same code. We are not related in any way to MAT other than running the same code. We have an excellent coder called Mindless who actually developed the code for our site
Just thought I would clear this up
Owner @ DarkAlliance
@ SAD PANDA - MAT is 524 Users Now, thanks to FileShareFreak
Torrentinvites.org has a new look now
Tiggy Tow Says:
Wow, Nice! now that is what I am talking about!
Tried to sign up at PinoyTorrents, but I got stymied by the Tagalog registration page. I could figure most of it out, but there was a secret question and 2 other fields which I couldn’t work out.
So it’s no go for now.
Too bad. My Thai wife might have enjoyed it.
maybe it’s time to add ‘old private tracker to be down’? we want to know what happened to scenesound, silverseed, elektronik, PiN and others…
My review of MAT:
Despite pretty good pre times MAT seems completely dead. As in, despite having freeleech *and* double upload credits , the active torrent with the most leechers has all of … one.
The stylesheets are also pretty painful to look at, and the cutesy anime avatars look like they’d better suited for a 14 yr old Japanese girl’s blog (don’t get me wrong — I love anime, but this is ridiculous looking).
All in the site *could* have a lot of potential going into the future. But, as of now, it has yet to live up to it.
Does somebody can send me an invite for comicbt.com?
nemesis_tt [ at ] live.com
@NEMESIS (post 035):
You’re asking for an invite to join a tracker with open signup?! Seriously?!
If you’re too lazy to read the whole article before begging for an invite why someone would even want to invite you ? + It’s open you dumb ass ! Read the article !
@? (post N°06):
You’re promoting a new site called StoreTheFiles….I have a weird feeling about this one…Isn’t it a revamped version of the infamous Scam site StoreTheNet from the not less infamous Yokto?
@ABSOLUT3 (Post N°033):
Good question, I’d like to know too what happened to all these sites…
elektronik will stay a mystery, staff told everyone, including to their members in elektronik’s forum that they were closing for “obvious reasons”…obvious to no one exept the staff ! And when several members asked them in the forums why they were closing they answered : “Can you tell me one reason not to close?”…
ABout PiN, it’s a mystery, it was ok some days ago, it must be a server problem, it will be back, there was lots of activity, seeders leechers etc…
Silverseed and scenesound, I guess it’s just because of lack of activity, in forums and trackers.
PiN is back online, there was a server problem.
About SilverSeed. A person from staff told me next 2 months ago:
‘Site and tracker are expected to be back up soon. We have problems with our servers in data center. Stay turned!’
2 months passed away and nothing changed)
And I hope SceneSound will be back soon. They had lot’s of old stuff there and I find this tracker useful and active. The problem is that it’s swedish and all comments and forum posts are in swedish, imo.
Here’s a little update for all SceneSound members.
SceneSound is now offically dead due to paypal closed their account and fish is now gone once again.
Rest in peace, SS.
We need a replacement for Scenesound. Someone start a general music tracker pls!!
Thats not true - most torrent comments @scenesound are in english. If its a swedish release and there are like 10 comments - well then duh it will have swedish comments. Also the forums had a dedicated ENGLISH section where there were lots of english topics.
Yeah, yeah, say that it had the same sweet community as ViP has. I was never idling on SS’s IRC chan but I’m sure that english wasn’t the main language there.
I do totally agree with you. We need a substitution for SS with it’s big archive of old releases and also we need a substitution for elektronik and I miss scene MViDs that were on SilverSeed (though it’s still not dead I think that we need a substitution for it too).

Hello, a new tracker has just started 3 days ago, we are focusing on movies release, if you are able to upload movies, please do help out. Seedboxed. Good Pretimes and releases are unRARED so you dont need double to space to watch while uploading.
Since the site is a new one, dont expect too much activity YET.
Private tracker and doors are open for a very short time:
I have both What and Waffles, but I still find a dedicated site like ComicBT much better for a comic book fan. You get a community of other fans and much more dedication to serving them.

I was thinking more like open signups page at this forum, easier to track these new trackers while registrations are still open.
