Metal music PR

Metal as a genre in 2019 requires a team that appreciates that it’s a wider term than it was when it first came into a more mainstream public knowledge in the early 80s. Whether it’s power metal, prog, black, extreme metal or even metal-influenced hardcore, your project will need someone working on it who gets each and every style.

At Prescription, we have staff members who got suspended from school for going AWOL to see Iron Maiden and Slayer when they should have been in a physics class (true story) and others who have played in heavy bands in the past - so you can be sure that we’re people who are enthused by the genre and who will approach the people who matter with your music.

Metal Hammer, Rock Sound, Terrorizer, Zero Tolerance and a selection of key webzines and metal blogs are all on our contacts list and we’ll make sure your records reach the key contacts at all of them. 

As well as the greats that have come and gone, we’re also working with some of the very best heavy bands out there today - Oranssi Pazuzu, Beastmilk and Sabbath Assembly amongst them.
