You like heavy metal? And you read? Well, I have something for you. Behold, DESPUMATION!
Despumation, published and edited by the wonderful Kriscinda Everritt, is a literary journal devoted to the sounds and words of heavy metal music. Yes, that music which your parents considered the least literary is, in fact, quite literary and its fans literate.
Here's a quick description:
"Despumation champions fiction that explores the diverse themes metal
music customarily addresses using language to evoke the feeling of
listening to the music. This issue includes stories inspired by Dio,
Voivod, Megadeth, Judas Priest, Meshuggah, and Candlemass, plus stories
and poems inspired by the metal scene, metal sounds, and metal concepts."
