Back in 1998 Thrash Magazine (Metal Head Music at the time) was founded by Don Alcombright. Since that time, my growth in the scene has immersed me into some of the best, darkest, funniest, craziest metal, hardcore and punk music out there. We have attempted other content (movies and games), but throughout the years we always came back to metal, hardcore and punk. In 2006 (college graduation year), I joined up with a developer I met in college and later worked with named Chris Riley. At the time, we were called Shattered Silence, and although our fan base was growing, I was becoming tired of doing it alone. We decided to partner up and design from the ground up Thrash Magazine. Thrash Magazine finally came to fruition in April of 2007. Since that time we have grown steadily, found a dedicated staff and are more than ever immersed in the metal/hardcore/punk world.

We currently specialize in getting you the latest news, reviews, photos, articles, videos and interviews from today’s cutting edge hardcore, metal and punk acts.

Thrash Magazine is based out of Kingston, MA and is made possible by a team of dedicated and (sometimes) hardworking professionals:
