A hardcore magazine that is full of the brooding menacing attitude of its subject matter. Metal Hammer is the essential reader for the passionate metal-lover.

Covering all varieties of metal music from thrash to death, technical to traditional heavy, Metal Hammer never lets you forget that you’re reading a metal magazine as every page has all the attitude and style of the bands it covers. Inside you’ll find all the latest metal music news, coverage of the most extreme live gigs, albums and merch. Where Metal hammer really shines is in the in-depth interviews in each issue examining a huge host of different, infamous bands both established and new. It also more often than not has at least one cover CD guaranteed to get you throwing up the horns and screaming at the top of your voice.

To us here at Newsstand, metal is just like normal music but better in pretty much every way. Metal, whatever the flavour, is all about the extreme, about being louder, faster, more menacing, and more hardcore than everybody else. Metal Hammer epitomises everything there is to love about the metal music scene, being packed full of hard drinking, fast living metal gods. There is such a diversity in metal now that pretty much anyone can find something they will appreciate, though perhaps not the cardigan-ed hipsters who are afraid of music with a bit of punch, a bit of bite.

Mind you, metal has had a bit of an odd history. Some of the earliest metal bands – casting our minds back we can’t help but pick out Ozzy Osbourne – seem frankly very tame by comparison to the modern day extremes that exist. Though they seem to be lesser in sound, let us not forget that it is they who started the ball rolling, that without them modern metal wouldn’t be anything like it is today.

What is frankly embarrassing, however, is the brief period in the eighties when Glam metal ruled. I mean, seriously, what were they thinking? Big platform shoes, shiny outfits and terrible, terrible music. Sorry KISS, but you were never as good as you thought you were.
