  ABOUT US
Cora, Silkie, Marlies August 2002 - after years of writing for other zines, websites and other - ongoing - activities in the metal scene (official websites, fanclubs etc) it was time for us to take charge and start something we could call our own. We don't pretend to be the best, but we have our own identity, our love for and the drive to promote the music we believe in - METAL!! We devote practically our whole lives to it. We hope it shows - we want to bring you quality:)

Being three metal girls, we wanted a female name that would be appropriate for us and being closely connected (for one by marriage;)) to photographer Nico Wobben (Nico's PhotoPit) we wanted a connection to his website as well: Morrigan's Pit. The Morrígan is a celtic goddess of battle, strife and fertility and we made a mascotte that would be like the metalchick she could've been in this era.

We aim to promote metal ranging from melodic/symphonic/progmetal to power/thrash to death/metalcore/(melodic)blackmetal. Although there is just a thin line between genres, we'll avoid nu/rap/reggae/techno-metal (metal??) since we don't consider it metal!;) It's our zine, our time and money, so our call. You might want to check with us first in case of doubt!

Click on the following thumbnails to see some initial artwork for Morrigan and some more of these silly over-the-top-metal pics we made (like the ones above). We laughed our asses off doing them - we suggest you do the same and most of all not take them too seriously! "The saw is the law!!":)
