Metal Roos was established in 2013 by German native, Michael Lueders, with the ongoing support of his wife Anja. After immigrating to Australia, Michael developed the idea of promoting and supporting the underground world of metal. Since then ‘Metal Roos’ has stayed true to its Aussie focus and underground roots, while still covering what the mainstream world of metal has to offer. The webzine is a testament to his ongoing enthusiasm and love for the genre. Michael, who is best descibed as a true ‘metalhead’, is a dedicated, genuine person who revels in the success of others. With the help of his ever growing team of contributors, they passionately listen and review, attending and photographing every gig they can, posting on the webzine and social media about the thing they universally love. Metal. As the crew and the webzine has grown, so has their reach, making even international bands a focus. However their hearts will always be in the place where it all started. The underground. The raw and exciting sound of those who are often largely unheard, yet so deserving of exposure and support.
