I do not know anyone who subscribes to Revolver. I know plenty of dudes who “get” copies of the magazine; cats who work at labels and other publications, because that putrid rag’s sent over gratis.
By the time Revolver makes it to newsstands, it’s a relic. At least a month of news has gone by and in today’s world, a month is a century. Yes, they have some good writers who do some decent interviews, but for the most part, that magazine is a gimmick-driven ass-kissing turd of a publication.
In order to help sell copies next month, Revolver is releasing some Big 4 trading cards, modeled after the Topps baseball cards I got when I was a kid — but feating the members of Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, and Anthrax. While that’s not a bad idea, it’s like, I don’t know — who gives a fuck? It’s a gimmick.
Just like the “Hottest Chicks in Metal” is a gimmick, and that new “advice” column they have up on their lame fucking site is a lifted gimmick.
Fuck that noise. Sorry if I’m the only one who thinks that magazine is pointless and just a waste of good trees.
