Not too long ago we were saying goodbye to Metal Hammer, Classic Rock and Prog Magazine as Team Rock were to be no more.
In a series of fortunate events however Metal Hammer has been bought, saved and will be returning to the shelves of your local retailer on the 10th of February. Their comeback issue will feature an interview of Ozzy Osbourne by M. Shadows from Avenged Sevenfold.
Just before Christmas when we found out that Team Rock was being shut down a JustGiving page was set up as the staff were left with little to no hope of redundancy. The page’s target was to be £20,000, enough to give each staff member a £1000. The completed total of the page came to £88,760 which is a massive 443% over target, well done to everyone that was able to give.
For Metal Hammer there was a light at the end of the tunnel and so from everyone at The Wave, welcome back and good luck!
