About me:.. .. ..
In 1997, POWERMETAL.de started as a small, private homepage dealing with Heavy Metal alongside some other topics. Since the original homepage received a lot of positive feedback from the growing internet community, the project was transformed into a fanzine for Metal, Rock and Gothic in 1999. Ever since, the acceptance amongst fans, musicians, managements, labels and distributions has been growing, and with the turn of the year from 2004 to 2005, the fanzine became a magazine as a manifestation of our will to be an even stronger and more professional partner within the music scene.
Month by month we are happy to welcome more than 50,000 regular readers on the pages of POWERMETAL.de, reaching a total of more than 800,000 visits and over 3,000,000 pageviews. That makes POWERMETAL.de one of Germany's most widespread magazines, including both online and print media.
The staff currently consists of 17 regular members and 22 freelancers, who have written more than 8,000 cd-reviews, interviewed 1,000 bands and artists and reported from more than 900 gigs and events throughout Europe.
Alongside the hard working music desk, our literature desk is also well established on the market with more than 2,700 reviews, which has consequently lead to the foundation of our literature magazine BUCHWURM.info.
The second non-music-branch of POWERMETAL.de is also getting more popular. The movie desk, which has been established in mid-2003 has already provided more than 800 reviews completing the program of POWERMETAL.de. The video-corner might soon become a magazine of its own, too.
POWERMETAL.de does mainly address young people with an average age below 20 years, which has been indicated by surveys in our well frequented discussion forum.
Some of the main attractions of the magazine are the regular news updates and the frequent additions of new reviews, interviews and event reports. Further, the cooperation with the reknowned visual artist Jan Oidium enables us to present exclusive specials like online-cartoons.
