Metal Edge

Metal Edge was an American music magazine that specialized in heavy metal and hard rock music. The magazine was founded by Gerri Miller and Paul Sacks and was published from 1985 to 2009.Image:metal-edge-sample-cover.jpg

The magazine gained a reputation for its in-depth coverage of heavy metal and hard rock bands, and its annual readers' poll, the "Metal Edge Readers' Choice Awards" was a highly anticipated event among metal fans. In addition to this, the magazine also published special issues surrounding subjects like the best albums of the year and the history of heavy metal music.

Metal Edge included interviews with many famous music personalities from the heavy metal and hard rock genres, such as Ozzy Osbourne, Metallica, Kiss, and Guns N' Roses among others. Concert listings, tour dates, and album reviews were a regular feature of the magazine. The magazine was often considered a vital source of information for metal fans in the pre-internet era.

In addition to the print edition, Metal Edge also had a popular online presence and had multimedia features on the website. The magazine produced several video and audio programs, including online radio programs and video interviews with bands and musicians.

When the magazine was at its peak of popularity, it faced a few financial difficulties in the early 2000s, which was said to have been attributed to the rise of the internet and the decline of print media. In 2009, Metal Edge ceased publication, leaving behind almost a 25-year legacy of successful and influential music journalism.{{Categories}}
