Never mind... I just bought a copy of Terrorizer at WH Smiths. I'm not overly impressed, to be honest. I think I prefer Metal Hammer.

Where can you get Terrorizer? I know that Metal Hammer is readily available in supermarkets, but where stocks Terrorizer?

WHSmith is usually a safe bet.

Why isn't my fave listed, Iron Fist? It is the only I buy every issue of.

It probably wasn't included because this thread was started nearly 2 and a half years before the first issue of Iron Fist was published :P :lol:

I've started picking up Terrorizer alongside my monthly Metal Hammer. I have to say, Terrorizer covers a wider variety of stuff, but seems to have smaller coverage. For example, this month's interview with Suicidal Tendencies only had a page of coverage. However, Metal Hammer this month was relatively poor. Saying that, a cover feature of Avenged Sevenfold, and how good can it be?

If you can find it, Iron Fist is pretty good. Similar coverage (though perhaps more underground, but cult underground rather than the nobodies Zero Tolerance often has in), but with much better features. Last Terrorizer I got the cover feature was 4 pages I think, 1 full page was a picture, and two other pages had half pictures. Last issue of Iron Fist there was a 10 page feature on Tormentor (4.5 pages worth of pictures (though it was a double page cover image for the interview), so excluding that, 2.5 pages of picture (excluding smaller ones), for an 8 page feature.) Then a 7 page Dio feature (3 full page pictures), but still twice the content for the second article as Tez had for the cover feature. Even Pagan Altar got 5 pages (3 of text), Satan got 4, Immolation got 3. You can see where I'm going with this :P

That is of course until they feature you, and then I assume it's a fine publication run by geezers? :p

It may not be perfect, but I reckon it's the best of a bad bunch.
