About Metal Hammer
Now in its fourth year, this year's awards coincide with the 20th anniversary of Metal Hammer magazine, which has long been the only magazine for fans of heavy rock and metal music. From its beginnings in 1986, Metal Hammer has constantly been at the forefront of extreme music and continues to pave the way and defend the faith for the alternative rock music scene. Daring to cover music genres and artists others fear to, Metal Hammer magazine has risen to become an institution in rock music over the years. The dedication of the magazine to its readers and its integrity sets it apart from the rest of the market, something that was reflected in the recent ABC announcement, which saw Metal Hammer magazine increase its year-on-year circulation a staggering 15%, which equates to a 50% circulation rise in the last 2 years alone.
