IMPORTANT STUFF

ABOUT US
Maximum Metal was started in 2003 by a few guys who just wanted a forum for communicating about hard rock and heavy metal and we have raised our fists for the style ever since. Our mission is to be a comprehensive metal source and entertainment site for fellow fans such as ourselves. We offer news, personal reviews, interviews with indy and major metal stars, columns, picture galleries, and our own exclusive features. Our active staff of writers and photographers are from various areas of the world--US, Europe, Asia, etc., making us a global metal ezine. If you get the urge, please give us your thoughts on Maximum Metal. This site will be constantly updated and modified for the metal community that has given, and still gives, so much to us.

CONTACT & SUBMISSIONS
We can be reached for news, requests and general noise here: news@maximummetal.com

*** NOTE: We have moved, along with the industry, to downloading digital content for reviewing instead of receiving physical cds. If you have a link or electronic press kit to promote music, please email that to us. Don't mail cds through the post.

JOINING US
Maximum Metal is always looking to add staff members who know heavy metal and have the motivation to write about it. Our staff is primarily self-motivated and you'll get out of it what you put into it. The current batch of earth dogs can be seen here: [Staff Page]

METAL STREAMING
Maximum Metal saw the conflict and difficulty with purchasing heavy metal and hard rock in the 00s and compiled a feature called "Buying Metal". Now, in 2016, we are launching a feature called "Streaming Metal", another resourceful list that will compile all of the options available to music fans to stream metal legally either for free or as a paid subscriber. Check out our Maximum Metal Guide to Streaming Music [Metal Streaming]

METAL STREAMS
