Editorial Message

Issue 085 finally sees the light! Thanks for bearing with us while we got this issue off to press and out to you - I'm sorry that it's later than anticipated; as a (very) small independent company we've found that - inevitably - we do sometimes need to be a little bit flexible on deadline, especially when life throws a few unexpected curveballs at you (which it did this issue for me anyway). This deadline was bent a little more than normal, but it is a personal goal of mine to try to meet our production deadlines in a more timely way as we creep through the rest of the year; we've also tweaked our publication dates to take this later-than-expected-issue into account and they're available over on our website if you're wondering when an issue is due at any point - and any (unlikely) further changes to these will be posted online too.

Meantime, I really hope you enjoy this installment of the magazine, there's a lot to get through, so I'll be keeping this editorial message short as I head off to crack on with the next one (and less text is an excuse to shoehorn in yet another Immortal photo!). Before I sign off, it's always great to hear from our readers, so if you want to share your thoughts on the magazine or anything else relevant/music-related, please feel free to drop me a line personally, or get in touch via the dreaded social media - we'd love to hear from ya!

Enjoy the rest of the summer.
