This is a new era and a new start for Me­tal

Ham­mer. What you’ll see within th­ese pages is the mag­a­zine that we be­lieve rep­re­sents where me­tal is at in 2018. It’s a mag­a­zine we’re im­mensely proud of: stacked with bril­liant bands, new reg­u­lar fea­tures and a world-ex­clu­sive in­ter­view with one of the most im­por­tant bands to ever grace our world: Slip­knot. It seems in­sane to think that All Hope Is Gone is now a decade old, but the story be­hind it - told in full with no holds barred for the first time - is an ab­so­lute mind­blower. En­joy.

We’ve spent much of the last year chat­ting to you guys about what you’d like to see more of in Ham­mer, and what as­pects of Ham­mer through the years you’ve loved the most. The re­sults of those con­ver­sa­tions are in your hands right now. This is your mag as much as ours. Your sup­port is the lifeblood that keeps us go­ing. With­out you, we don’t ex­ist, and we will never, ever for­get that.

So, let us know what you think of the new digs on the

Me­tal Ham­mer Read­ers group on Face­book, or email us at met­al­ham­[email protected]­ We’re al­ways lis­ten­ing. And if you like what you see, don’t for­get you can go that ex­tra mile with us (and save some money!) by sub­scrib­ing at

Ham­merFam­ily. If you’re al­ready a loyal sub­scriber: thank you, and keep your eyes peeled for some spe­cial stuff we have lined up just for you.

Let’s make some mem­o­ries to­gether, shall we? Horns up!
