The Metal Mag N°33 January 2020 is Out!!!

The Metal Mag N°33 January 2020

Brand new edition :

TMM33cover

Once again a new issue is done, as I receive interviews always out of time…

Bands like Anvil deserves respect, like St.Madness who featured on the last cover of the issue 32. Those bands give a reason to fight for the passion that is music. So thank you for all who respects me and appear in the mag!!!

Most underground bands don’t deserve respect, they don’t respect my work nor anything at all. Disrespect of schedule, deadline, no communication and wimp other the net to get their album sold when they are accepting digital platforms making money on their creation.

You can find brand new albums on Utube, Spotify, sometimes on bandcamp… Then I don’t know how they live but they want everything for free. So they keep sending me mails to get their albums reviewed cos that ‘s the only thing they want: a free review.

Well sorry you have to fight if you want to one day be big as Anvil!!! Which is not going to happen reason why the seventies and eighties bands are still here.

I’m happy to have interviewed and shared undergrounds bands even if many have disappeared. It’s a tough world and you don’t pay the bills with mp3s.  I was going to stop the mag with the issue 32 :

TMMcover3

The cover says it all!!! 22 years of spreading the disease of music I love since I was born, spreading videos, interviews, anything music related. So in the last issue you will find Wes Jaques‘s interviews, Zach Moonshine who is doing a big work online, Metal Mike who like many interview bands on his utube channel. Lady Kat Chaos who is interviewing bands on many magazines.

Metal was a united music in the eighties and has lost it all. I have and will always share others work as I respect people. I was once the first to have on online magazine, people asked me to get it printed in a time when digital has taken the biggest place.

At the end how many bought a printed copy? only the few who respect my work ! That means not many. Online interviews with podcasts and all are the ones who work great, they mostly have the biggest bands. I’ve been trying to find a way to get my mags online , I used Issu which looked great , I understand they want to get paid for their work but I don’t understand why I should pay a company that makes money on selling my magazines! So I keep searching for the right thing to spread my mags online as they always have been.

IF you ‘re still reading that means you care, the issue 33 for the new year has a great musician Jeremy Ross who is giving away signed poster and CDs to whom will read and answer the questions. As an exceptional time I’m giving away FREE copy of the printed magazine The Metal Mag Number 32 to anyone who will answer few questions.

Until then , keep using facebook the only place people are!

Thanks for following me and all the people who supports me and buy the pdf and printed copies : you rock!

The Editor,

Hello Fellows,
In the last issue of The Metal Mag it’s written you can get a FREE album from JacksonHewitt
As for now I haven’t received any messages so I supposed you are not interested.
It’s a shame to see when bands are trying to be gentle and noone cares while they are struggling to put their music out and give fans great music.
Next time I will give tide pods I might get some messages…

Will The Metal Mag pass the new year?

cropped-themetalmagn30banner.jpgWill The Metal Mag pass the new year?

December is coming and the new year 2020 will bring new excitation.

I have received tons of mails and messenger messages asking “review request” .

Please follow the rules :Prices

The Metal Mag N°31 has been released 16 days ago and saw already a good selling  amount.

I want to thank the new subscribers and all the people who bought the printed mag as the Pdf one.

Orders Nov 2019

Mostly Americans people who are the biggest buyers for the printed copy!!! Thank you so much . I wonder why the other part of the world who asked for it since 2016 aren”t that much interested to own this piece of music history.

The Metal Mag N°31

The pdf copy has been created since 1998, although the cheapest price . ( it was online Free.) 
To my surprise doesn’t have much success compared to the printed mag , so it is always great to see people are ordering a copy so they can read it anywhere and most support my work to spread bands.

I recall I am the only person behind everything and you are always welcome to participate to spread and share the bands, through interviews , reviews , live events… (Thx kelly)

You must be commited and passionate enough to follow the schedule.

Sadly I started to unsubscribe to newsletters from labels and prs, I don’t have the time on reading mails and need a support stronger than just Free promotion. If you want to advertise or like Gregg being on the front cover. You need to follow the prices page in the mag and in the website.

Tell your friends and if you have a band and want to be promoted you know what to do. Get your photo and name in the mag which is so sought after for spreading the bands that haven’t got much exposure.

Please give me your feedback!  what do you like in the mag , what would you want to see…etc; also I’m thinking of starting a patreon to get help to print the mag.

I want to tell all of you who ask me to like your facebook page, I can’t do it because facebook stop me to so I have to unlike pages… 

Thx for your support.

The Metal Mag issue number 30 is out!!!

It’s with pleasure and still hard time I get you the new issue of the magazine. A bit late due to the summer time and few bands late reply. I recall the mag is made every two months so if you can’t get into the schedule I’m sorry you’ll have to wait.

Since the big demand on the printing issue since 2016 , it is possible to get it in hard copy for your collection! (The wimping ones never buy anything…)

So head of to the shop and get as many copies as you want!

Check it out :

For those who read my troubles on Facebook , you may know I can’t see my pages and so share as I used to.  (At the same time I’m not paid to spread the news anyway…)

As we say in France “every job deserves it’s pay check” , so while I’m overwhelmed by demands to review and interview bands. I feel sad to see only bands empty their pocket for the mag.

So I’m sorry if I can’t reply to everyone.

Thanks to the labels and PR’s who spread bands and sorry that few bands never reply… If you don’t want support don’t ask for it!

Until next time, have a good read
