There’s no denying it, the metal world is full of strong women running the business; on stage as artists, in offices as magazine editors, behind the scenes as managers, tour managers, agents and promoters- and the list is far from complete.
Despite having a mostly male outlook, the metal community in 2021 is as diverse as ever and still continuously growing and developing.
In celebration of Women’s History Month, Nuclear Blast Records is launching an awareness campaign on their socials to spotlight inspiring women across all countries and industry positions, alongside no-less inspiring men willing to support female empowerment in the scene.
Over the month of March, the worldwide leading metal label will share portraits of metalheads to help inspire other women and men with diverse profiles and stories. For this purpose, many great figures in the metal community such as NB artists Doro Pesch (Doro) and Olof Mörck (Amaranthe), actress and musician Jessica Pimentel and entrepreneur Kim Dylla have submitted personal shoutouts sharing their journey in metal, their experiences of working in the scene throughout the years and their advice to all female metalheads around the world.
