Launched in 2020, 12” Magazine is a free 12-page, full-colour, A4 size publication (print + digital) written in English, whose credo is to discuss and display the best metal and rock releases available on vinyl! We aim to be at the forefront of metal and rock journalism, giving readers access to the biggest names in the industry as well as supporting up-and-coming artists. 12” Magazine is part of Portugal’s Elementos À Solta, LDA, a platform for specialist media which has licensed Metal Hammer, the world’s biggest heavy metal music brand, which is now available for the first time in the Portuguese language.

This new mission is taken up by Joel Costa and Diogo Ferreira (director and editor of Metal Hammer Portugal, respectively).

Our first issue, which features a 10th-anniversary cover story analyzing Ghost’s debut album “Opus Eponymous”, will hit the streets on September 25. Additional distribution details will be announced soon.


12” Magazine is currently distributed by:

UK/Europe: Plastic Head
Germany/World: Eisenwald
Europe/World: Kadabra Music

We are looking for distribution partners. Contact joelcosta@twelveinchmagazine.com for more information.
