(And old text)
Scream Magazine is a Norwegian based hard rock and heavy metal magazine. We are based in the capital of Norway – Oslo. The magazine got started in the autumn of 1990, and the first edition was issued in november ’90 (see picture).
All editorial stuff, layout and production of the magazine is all done as part time jobs for all involved. But that doesn’t mean we don’t put in as much effort as it takes to run a magazine of fairly good quality, and we are pretty much satisfied with what we have done so far.
We are (now) seven persons who runs this magazine. Each journalist is pretty much different to another – both in personal taste and in the way of expression. We cover every style that fits the expression hard rock and heavy metal – traditional, AOR, grunge, glam, sleaze, thrash, death, hardcore, black, progressive and alternative. We’re unprejudiced, there’s hardly any limitations for what we cover as long as it’s metal. And, we do not only cover the big names, high sales figures is not the only ticket to get featured in Scream Magazine.
Scream Webzine is ment to be a supplement to the original paper version of Scream Magazine. Over the years we have felt more and more preassure from around the world, to write in English instead of our own language, Norwegian.
Since more and more people have discovered the Internet, we have decided that this is the best way to spread our information until there is an English version of Scream Magazine available. Then again, this will only depend on the response we receive from readers outside Norway. We have taken our first steps into the World Wide Web, and we will continue to plunder.
Within our Webzine-pages, you will find a short-version of the actual magazine. You will find almost every CD that has been reviewed since magazine #26. Instead of extensive reviews you will find short summaries. We will have about 30-40% of the interviews available on the net, but these interviews will also be presented in summary form. We want to be your most reliable source of information. We have become a major source of information all over Europe, and are rapidly emerging into markets all over the world. Scream Webzine is dedicated to serve readers with the most current and informative information avalable in the HR/HM world.
