Good day. Caustic Truths is a national print magazine based out of
Toronto, Canada. It has been around for 14 years with 100 plus
issues that focuses on hard rock/heavy metal/punk/alternative
music. We are looking to expand our horizons and we’ve been including more essays lately about music and popular/thought provoking topics. The following are a few of the topics we’d like to cover in our upcoming issues, please get back to us if you’re interested in writing a piece. Essays are typically between 1200-2000 words. Please get back to us if you have any questions. If you’re familiar with the Metal/Punk/Hardcore genres it would be a plus
Some topics to write essays on:
-Video game culture
-The evolution of Metal drumming(or guitar) through history
-Controversial moments in Metal history
-The impact of certain Metal scenes (Floridian Death Metal, Bay Area Thrash, Gothenburg Death Metal, Long Island NY Hardcore, etc)
-A discussion of the best Metal album covers
-Articles on a certain band that has impacted a scene (Black Sabbath, Rush, Metallica, Led Zeppelin, etc)
-The sudden popularity of metalcore
-Metal involvement in popular culture (etc movie appearances)
-A History of Metal Labels
etc etc If you have an idea in mind, feel free to share it, but make sure there’s a reference to Metal music.
