Iron Fist magazine launching next week!

As many of you may already know I am now freelancing for a brand new magazine called Iron Fist. Founded by ex-Terrorizer editor Louise Brown, the magazine is offering an old school style magazine full of underground extreme metal and old classics. The first ever issue will launch on Weds the 26th September and will be available in WHSmiths! It can also be ordered online and ordered internationally. I am so excited to be part of this new project and it would be great if you guys check it out.

Finally back from Bloodstock

Had an amazing time – the usual crazy campsite antics, the great people, the awesome bands and the privelage of interviewing some special artists for Soundshock.com

I have plenty of writing up to do so stay tuned!

Features will include

  • Winterfylleth
  • Sepultura
  • Watain
  • Demonic Resurrection
  • Crowbar
  • Anaal Nathrakh
  • Chthonic
  • Moonsorrow
  • Dripback

and more!
