There's no understating it - Heavy Metal is something you live for; it's an obsession that breathes on it's own, consuming your thoughts. It drives you during your waking moments, and haunts you in your dreams.

Heavy Metal Nation is a place for satisfying some of that obsession - we provide opinions and articles on metal in all it's forms, including many genres that aren't metal, but fit well into your listening habits.

Not only that, but Heavy Metal Nation provides you with an outlet for your own opinions - if you think you can write an article, no matter the style, send it our way and we'll find a place for it to live.

Come on in, and take your obsession that much deeper. . .
