Absolutmetal has been bringing real metal to the underground faithful since 1997 when it began as a print mag. In 1998 the quest to conquer the internet began as the 'zine stopped print production and was reborn online.

Absolut Metal strives to preserve some integrity in a sea of mediocre bandwagon bands and radio friendly nu-metal. We cover METAL here, bands who are actually out there because they care about the music, bands keeping real metal alive. This is a 'zine for fans, by fans.
