About us

Metal-Roos was established 2013 by Michael Lueders and Anja Wendt, two Germans now living in Australia. Michael has always been metalhead and Anja was motivated by the challenge of programming a website without having previous programming knowledge. Their main focus was metal in Australia at the beginning which is still the foundation for the band profile archive and the gig guide. Slowly developing into a webzine, Metal-Roos could not ignore other countries' metal bands and extended reviews, interviews and news sections, keeping always an eye on Australian or Australia connected bands.

Metal-Roos enlists the help of volunteers to create content. Unfortunately, we cannot cover all review and interview requests even though the bands behind those are interesting and make great music.


We offer advertising packages. If you are interested, ask Anja


In 2014, the Metal-Roos team initiated Metal United Down Under and in 2018 Metal United World Wide.
