How many of you guys read Metal Hammer? and do you think they are sellouts 'cause a few of my mates think they are but I disagree
Also, how many bands have ou found about as a result of them?

I can't think of a lamer thing than reading magazines about metal.

I had to stop reading it because too much of my brain capacity was taken up with learning the distinctions between different subgenres of viking, Lord of the Rings and pirate inspired Finnish metal.

As someone who claims to be an ethnomusicologist, one would think you'd love to learn about the various cultural distinctions in music.

I used to read it fairly often but I stopped because it either got really really bad, or it was always bad and it took me awhile to realize it.

If Brahms was alive today, he'd be a shit guitarist for Megadeth.

Read it once and thought it was totally lame. MCR bashing and talk about "corpse paint".

I discovered The Haunted through it though.

Totally off topic, your name references the first song from one of my favorite albums of all time.

Why are magazines like this even in existence when you have Metalsucks?
For how can I give the King his place of worth above all else
when I spend my time striving to place the crown upon myself?

i know what you mean. Back in the pre internet days like the 1980's,we had to have magazines. But now with the internet, you can find stuff online.

I've known a couple of guys in bands who have said that their label basically had to pay for them to give it a good review, regardless of what they thought of the album. It could be a stinker but get a great review because of money, or be an amazing album but get an average review because nobody paid money.

I have a couple of issues. I only bought them because they came with Mastodon and Iron Maiden posters, as well as the CDs . Also, some of the articles were quite funny. The free keychain was nice too.

Nah see, Brahms would want to be a shit guitarist for Megadeth, but there's no way that he would be good enough. If he was lucky he could play bass for them.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

The first half of the magazine is usually shit but subterrania is always interesting and i've discovered a lot of great bands because of it.

Given that this is a website intended for guitarists I'd say surely the average of the pit would be higher than the general average.

A terrifying thought.

Okay I'm not acutally that grown up, nor do I have any disrespect for Slayer...they were still good last time I saw them when working at Bloodstock.

The fact that the average pitmonkey is a guitarplayer does not make the average guitarplayer a pitmonkey though.
