Metal Hammer/Slayer cover wins 'Entertainment Cover Of The Year'

Metal Hammer’s Slayer cover for issue 198 has beaten Empire, Heat, Hello and the Radio Times to scoop the honor of being named ‘Entertainment Cover of the Year’ at this year’s Maggies. Metal Hammer, Slayer and the fans of metal join forces to crush the competition at this year’s Maggies! Metal Hammer editor Alexander Milas says: “We are dedicating this award to our readers, fans of heavy metal and Slayer themselves. Together, we mobilized a massive online community who came to together to smash our common enemy, Peter Andre. It’s a real honor 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.”
