10 REASONS 2018 IS GONNA RULE
1. Architects at ally Pally
It’ll be epic. It’ll be emotional. Beyond all else, it’ll be huge. architects headline one of the UK’s biggest venues next month, and we cannot fucking wait.
2. new music
It’s only January and we already have new albums from Machine Head, Watain, of Mice & Men, Cane Hill and more to contend with.
We’re not complaining.
3. metal HAMMER TOURS
Trivium. Within Temptation. epica. We’re proud to be presenting three of 2018’s most exciting tours – and we can promise you they’re all going to slay.
4. EXTREME Rising
From expected new music from the likes of Zeal & ardor and Venom Prison to the return of heavyweights Watain and Morbid angel, the underground is on fire.
5. festival FRENZY
From Download landing Guns N’ Fucking Roses to Bloodstock building their greatest line-up ever, festival season already has us drooling.

The metal legends are promising a special, career-spanning stage show for their summer UK tour – and are bringing Killswitch along for the ride.
7. golden gods 2018
look for an announcement for this year’s awards in the coming weeks. We have big things planned.
8. infinity War
There’s nothing metal about this really. We’re just stoked to see Rocket

9. FEWER legends BREAKING UP
We’re tempting fate here, but with Sabbath and HIM leaving us in 2017, we’ve got fingers crossed for no fond farewells this time out
10. THE RETURN OF GHOST
It’s coming. and we are here for it. Watch this space.
