“We love all of you and wish you all many many many years of continued amazingness to come.” – Matt Heafy, Trivium
“We’re not too far behind ourselves, but we appreciate you leading the way. From setting the global standard in celebrating the Metal Hammer awards, to putting on some of the best tours the genre has ever seen, to the magazine that leaves the rest trying to catch up, we recognize and appreciate the long standing support. We’ve got your back, too!” – Chris Adler, Lamb Of God
“Reaching the age of 25 is fantastic. It’s a great magazine that has always supported the metal world, and this has been so important both for us oldies and also the younger bands. Hammer and metal do belong together. The longevity of both continues to astonish me. And the way the magazine has reflected all the changes in metal has helped the music to continually develop. Mind you, isn’t about time Hammer gave up? That’s what people said to us in the 1970s. So I’m just passing it on!” – Tony Iommi, Black Sabbath
“All of us in Alter Bridge would like to wish Happy Birthday to one of the greatest magazines on the planet! Congratulations Metal Hammer!!! Here’s to another 25 years of great music coverage…” – Alter Bridge
“Happy Birthday Metal Hammer!! 25 years of smashing people’s faces with Heavy fucking Metal! Hope there are many more years to come!” – Dez Fafara, DevilDriver
“Happy Birthday, Metal Hammer! Congratulations on 25 years of success, a ridiculously impressive accomplishment! We thank you for your long time support, and look forward to many more debaucherous birthday parties in the future!” – Coheed And Cambria
“Hey Metal Hammer, You’re still rockin’ and bangin’ your head after 25 years!!! You’re nowhere near knockin’ on heaven’s doors! Keep going strong! We wish you a lot of fun & great music for the future !!! All the best!” – Sharon den Adel, Within Temptation
“Congratulations on 25 years, and thank you for recognising Cliff’s contribution to the metal world. He’s always thought of, and still alive in our hearts and our fans’ hearts, there’s no doubt about that.” – James Hetfield, Metallica
