Future’s Metal Hammer and Slayer Beat the US President & Peter Andre at The Maggies


NewswireToday - /newswire/ - Bath, Banes, United Kingdom, 2010/06/21 - Future’s heavy metal bible crushes Hello and Heat to win Entertainment Cover of the Year. LSE: FUTR


Fan power and heavy metal heroes Slayer helped Future’s Metal Hammer magazine beat the US President Barack Obama and tabloid favourite, Peter Andre to be crowned “Entertainment Cover of the Year” at The Maggies.

The Maggies celebrate and award the best UK magazine covers of the year – with Metal Hammer beating mass-market opposition to scoop the Entertainment category with its bloody cover shot of Slayer, the iconic heavy metal brand.

Chosen solely by online votes, Future’s Metal Hammer beat entertainment stalwarts including Empire, Heat, Hello and the Radio Times to scoop the honour.

With a reputation for creative cover treatments, Metal Hammer celebrated the launch of Slayer’s “World Painted Blood” album with a gruesome, medical journal-style cover with four portraits of the brand, masterminded by Art Editor, James Isaacs. The exclusive shot was created using a combination of ceramic human skulls, an industry leading prosthetic make-up artist, and photographer Steve Brown.

Counting Slayer themselves amongst the most vocal supporters of Metal Hammer’s campaign to secure the Maggie award, the magazine encouraged its readers and ‘defenders of the faith’ at to vote – leaving a trail of mass-market entertainment titles in its wake.

Alexander Milas, Editor of Metal Hammer, said: “We are dedicating this award to our readers, fans of heavy metal and Slayer themselves. Together, we mobilise a massive online community, who came to together to smash our common enemy, Peter Andre. It’s a real honour to beat some of the best-known magazines to become the UK’s number one entertainment cover.”

“Slayer are truly one of the greatest, most ferocious and iconic metal bands of all time, and their brand of blackened thrash has been making heads bang around the world for decades. Our winning cover was far from conventional, but celebrates the heaviest band of all-time in real style.”
