GALLERY: Heavy Metal Truants 2014

There's only one way to get to Download and that's getting on yer bike and riding up there for charity. That's what the Heavy Metal Truants are doing right this second after they set off from London's Alexandra Palace at 9am this morning.

Luke Morton joined Metal Hammer as Online Editor in 2014, having previously worked as News Editor at popular (but now sadly defunct) alternative lifestyle magazine, Front. As well as helming the Metal Hammer website for the four years that followed, Luke also helped relaunch the Metal Hammer podcast in early 2018, producing, scripting and presenting the relaunched show during its early days. He also wrote regular features for the magazine, including a 2018 cover feature for his very favourite band in the world, Slipknot, discussing their turbulent 2008 album, All Hope Is Gone.
