The Princes’ of Heavy Metal will go up against guest editor, HRH The Prince of Wales on Country Life’s top cover as well as Top Gear, Harper’s Bazaar, Cosmopolitan, Esquire, Radio Times’ 50th Anniversary featuring Doctor Who.
Prog Magazine also received a nomination for ‘Specialist Consumer Magazine of the Year’, delighting Editor Jerry Ewing. It will take on The Week, Cyclist, Runner’s World, Top Gear, and FourFourTwo for the coveted award.
“Being a magazine editor is about the hard decisions, like: which cover-star gets the necrotizing eye lasers, and which one gets the super-strength? Our Slipknot Assemble cover wasn’t just a celebration of one of the World’s heaviest, and it should be said platinum-selling bands. It was in homage to the comic books that have fed the imagination of heavy metal culture for over forty years. It is testament to what a small, but creatively superhuman design team, headed up by our very own Mr. James Isaacs can do.” – Editor In Chief of Metal Hammer and TeamRock.com Alexander Milas
TeamRock.com owns national DAB radio station TeamRock Radio as well as a portfolio of rock magazines, including Classic Rock and Metal Hammer, Blues, Prog and AOR. You can tune into TeamRock Radio via DAB, on-line at teamrock radio and the Radio Player app.
“After 27 years in the game, it is great to see Metal Hammer can still punch like a heavyweight when it comes to dynamic, creative covers. We welcome the voting battle royale with the Who-vians, the Windsors and the Stig! What is just as inspirational to see recognized, is the whimsical, eccentric world of Prog, which is a premium priced £8 magazine at newsstand competing against some household brand names.” – Chris Ingham, Managing Director of TeamRock.com
The winners will be announced on 10th July at a glitzy ceremony at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London.
