In the new issue of Metal Hammer, we take a look at the heavy bands around the world that are standing tall, making a difference and using their voices to help fight for some important causes – and our future.

And, because we love you, the issue comes with THREE FREE GIFTS, including a free CD, a giant Slipknot sticker and a FREE 2016 FESTIVAL GUIDE!

We take you through every big festival you need to know about this summer, from Download, Bloodstock and Reading & Leeds to European metal meccas like Wacken, Hellfest and beyond!

We also chat to this year’s biggest names, from Iron Maiden and Rammstein on why they think Download might be their most special shows yet, to Parkway planning to bring the heavy to Reading & Leeds, and WWE legend Triple H on why pro wrestling has invaded the festival scene.

It’s big, it’s special, and it’s only with our new issue. Pick it up now!
