Spring is in the air, and Revolver's new issue is here. This might be the season of Easter, fresh flowers and young love, but our latest print edition is, as they all tend to be, a celebration of the unholy and unhinged — from the Satanic pop-metal musings of Ghost to the industrial-rap cacophony of Ho99o9. Those two juggernauts, plus Coheed and Cambria, Bring Me the Horizon and Korn (as well as one more group still to be announced), grace the issue's collectible covers. Inside, cutting-edge heavy-music artists such as Author & Punisher and Static Dress speak their minds. See a full list of the magazine's contents below.
You can pre-order the issue now along with special limited-edition collector's bundles, featuring exclusive vinyl, apparel and more, at our shop. Check back soon for more announcements — including additional fan bundles.
