A new regular magazine is set to be launched for fans who like their music served loud and heavy.

Fistful of Metal is a new quarterly music title from Big Cheese Publishing Ltd, the team behind Vive Le Rock, Down For Life and Louder Than War magazines.

It is a new title dedicated to the world‘s biggest music subculture, heavy metal.

From the originators of it all, Black Sabbath, through the heavy rock juggernaut that is Motörhead and beyond, it will be covering all the heavy hitters, old and new.

Whether you’re into old school, NWOBHM, speed, death, thrash, stoner or doom, if it’s the power of the riff that drives you, Fistful of Metal will have it covered.

The launch will be backed by a national press and advertising campaign and full social media promotion. Issue one will launch this October and will have an initial print run of 15,000 copies.

At a time when one of the UK’s longest-established music magazines, Q, has just published its last issue, launching a new title is a brave move. We wish them well.
