Oooh Lee, he'd take umbrage with that. A few reviews a month does not equal a steady income. But I'm sure as you know from reading this magazine for the, wow, almost five years he was involved in it that he just loved writing, loved word play, loved staying up late hunched over a keyboard conjuring up new witty metaphors and life on a editorial desk is rarely creative. The more excel spreadsheets he became caught up in the less time he had to write. I miss him so much but I think he made the right choice as his wings were clipped working an editorial position and he will go on and really flourish as a freelancer. I await his novel in 2015.


I'm sorry to hear that he's gone. i also enjoyed reading his pieces, and who is going to possibly connect Shane Embury in 6 degrees?

Are al ot of you on the Metal Hammer Forum?

I used to be but I got banned.

I actually got banned twice.The first time was for making death threats and soft racism.The second time I got banned was not my fault.The mods had it in for me and kept altering my posts to get me banned.I was a loyal reader of MH since 1989 but stopped buying it after the pathetic banning,their loss in the end.I must say this forum is far more tolerable and open minded than the MH forum, as a metal forum should be.

I would think though that HM has a large amount of under age readers to protect.

James Hoare left to write for Metal Hammer???!!


JAMES WHORE MORE LIKE.

Seriously though, don't they all? It's almost as if there isn't some massive obvious principled dividing line of quality and integrity and intelligence between Tegs and MH anymore. Suffice it to say, come the retro/extreme backlash, when Britrock, pop-ska-punk and nu-metal are in fashion again, all these ex-Tegs MH scribes will be feeling a right bunch of Charlies.

Assuming that writing is done on a freelance basis, why is it not possible to write for Tez AND Metal Hammer? Especially if as we led to believe Tez is not able to give enough work to support a writer in the manner to which he would like to become accustomed?

This has happened before. Do I remember Paul Schwarz writing for both for a while? I'd say it's best to avoid that sort of thing, as certain self-promoting individuals then effectively sew up the UK metal media, and it's best for each title to have its own personality and style. Also it's best that an illusory apparent consensus isn't formed across the media by a handful of well-connected and over-stretched freelancers.

There is a bit of a difference between writing for Subterranea and Metal Hammer itself though isn't there. at least that gives writers more scope to focus on the music that they care about.

Still that does mean a different readership though making Chris's points valid. I wish they sold it separately as I would pick it up but would never buy Metal Hammer itself. Can be annoying when there are articles I want to read but don't want to shell out a load of money for a trendy kids mag full of badges, bells and whistles.

I will always only ever write about bands and music I am passionate about, although being paid a bit is always a bonus, it is all about the music.

In how many words, though?! Obviously word counts are shrinking across the board as fonts and pics get bigger, and conveying your argument in as few words as possible is a discipline, but if a writer is good and the subject/argument is interesting I'd much rather read a large discursive review than a series of bulletpointed miniature press releases.

I agree with Pete, I'd buy subterranea...if I didn't have to endure the epileptic seizure inducing and claustrophobic pages of Metal Hammer.

Chris how come you haven't been in Tegz lately? I used to like reading your stuff back around 04/05...

If we told you we'd have to kill you. The truth of the matter is...I'd write for a snickers bar and a wank from a builder (and there are plenty of those near Tez HQ)...Hammer just won't take me because I'm rubbish and Louise only lets me write out of sympathy.

Well thank you! There's a lot I've wanted to do for Tegs but my most recent day job has demanded so much of my time be spent in front of a computer. For most of the last ten years I worked in a shop or a van or a warehouse so writing reviews was quite a nice change - nowadays when I get spare time I don't want to spend it writing yet more stuff! Also because I haven't submitted any invoices to Tegs since, Christ, about 2005, so I should really sort them out before I start taking more work on. The kids' show is nearly finished though so I hope to write more wank about metal at some point soon.

Yeah speaking of invoices...I need to sort out the last 6 at least,
