About Us

Webzine dedicated to all genres of metal and hard rock. We have been around since 2008 with several name changes until we finally settled with this one. We have interviewed a large range of bands from Tarja Turunen to Epica, Lacuna Coil, and more. Besides interviews, we also do reviews.

Who do we represent? Well, everything metal! We are HUGE fans of Tarja Turunen and have done many reviews on her albums and have had interviews with her. She is a very sweet, kind and genuine woman.

On our journey we have interviewed countless bands such as Otep, Kittie, Lacuna Coil, Epica, Seventh Wonder, Sabaton, Eva Under Fire, Lost Society and more!
