Heavy Metal Artwork Magazine: Music, Art, Print.
The World First and Only Heavy Metal Art Magazine
Heavy Metal Artwork launches world’s first and only metal art magazine
Heavy Metal Artwork has evolved into a leading online publication for heavy metal art. The site is widely visited and highly regarded for its outstanding work in promoting Heavy Metal as art and culture.
As it stands, the site has reached terminal velocity in its rapid ascension to where it is now, in terms of size and popularity. It’s now time to transcend into a more professional sphere of media and use its potential greatness to benefit everyone involved in the site, including record labels, bands, artists, publishers, promoters and our faithful readers.
We are now devoting the same care and attention to a premium quarterly print and digital magazine. Focusing on the creative disciplines, music, art, design, illustration, photography and video making. Showcasing the most talented and renowned artists and musicians with interviews, anecdotes, opinion pieces and insights.
Heavy Metal Artwork print edition:

Ethically sourced and FSC approved and using vegetable based inks
Limited edition of 666 units hand numbered and stamped
Perfect PUR binding on 100gsm (pages) and 250gsm (cover) Offset Paper

What are the risks?
As with any project, there are risks involved in releasing a publication. We might not be able to deliver the end product on time, or we might run into problems with the printing and shipping. Our team has over 15 years in delivering creative projects of all sizes and shapes. The 1st issue is ready to go to print, so any problems are very unlikely.
