We love heavy music and like to share our passion with others.

The Heavy Hunt is an online magazine dedicated to heavy music. We write about metal, hardcore and many of its subgenres. The main focus is (currently) on metalcore and deathcore. We write about bands, festivals and everything related to this type of music.

Our Values

We love heavy music and like to share our passion with others. What makes us different is that we carefully select the bands we cover. We follow our intuition and if we discover a new band and love what they do or think a band suits our target audience, we write about it. Main requirement is that it needs to be heavy (except Ghost <3).

Our History

The Heavy Hunt started as a YouTube channel on April 1, 2021 out of love for music and graphic design/video editing. A year later, in April 2022, the idea was born to start an online magazine based on the YouTube channel, which quickly became reality.


Of course, help is always welcome, so if you would like to join the crew, please feel free to contact us and tell us what you would like to contribute. If you are not ready for that, we would of course also appreciate it if you follow us on social media.

Your Band

If you are in a band and play heavy music, please contact us and show us what you got. We love to discover new music and we gladly write about new bands.
