HEAVY METAL TRIBUNE, ITS CONTENTS AND ITS OWNERS, WRITERS AND CONTRIBUTORS ARE DEDICATED SOLELY TO UNDERGROUND METAL MUSIC AND CULTURE. HEAVY METAL TRIBUNE HAS NO POLITICAL OR RELIGIOUS AFFILIATIONS. THE CONTENT ON THIS WEBSITE AND OUR MAGAZINES ARE NOT INTENDED TO PUSH ANY POLITICAL OR (ANTI) RELIGIOUS AGENDA.

Heavy Metal Tribune was formed in 2nd February 2010 by 6 like-minded individuals with a similar goal in mind – bringing our readers the very best in the metal circle.

Formed from the ashes of a previous entity, the aim of Heavy Metal Tribune is to bring you the freshest and juiciest stuff in the Metal Realm, yet staying true to our roots. Over the years, Heavy Metal Tribune has been dedicated to bringing the latest news and happenings in the metal circle to fans of metal. At the same time we aim to promote lesser known and underground bands, and learn from the more experienced bands through various avenues such as album reviews and interviews.

Heavy Metal Tribune has also been involved as the official media partner for various local metal events over the years, with some of the most notable ones being the Grindhouse gigs and Meltgsnow and Truth Be Known release parties by Mourningsound Records in 2010 and 2011 and the Impiety Asian Worshippers Tour 2011 by Alliance Music Group. A partnership has also been forged with renowned Singapore concert promoter Cynical Sounds for the Creative Chaos II concert, featuring Decapitated and Nervecell.

Heavy Metal Tribune has also had the honour of being invited by The Swedish Embassy for a private tea reception with legendary Swedish progressive metal band Opeth at The Swedish Ambassador’s Residence in 2012.

In August 2012, we launched our debut print issue. 12 pages of no-nonsense heavy metal. It was well-received, with all 250 copies being distributed completely, both locally and overseas, before the middle of the month, and an online circulation of more than 2000. Future issues aim to bring more exciting and interesting features to fans of Heavy Metal Tribune and heavy metal music.

Heavy Metal Tribune will bring you the latest updates in the metal circle. We deal with all forms of metal, from traditional heavy metal to extreme metal (no -core and nu-metal nonsense!).
