About US

THE METAL DEN was created by legendary rock journalist, Randy “Rocket” Cody, on Myspace in 2005 and he launched the official dot com for TMD with ex-partner Eddie Karam of The Edge Factory in 2006. Rocket first appeared as a staff writer for metalunderground.com in 2006.

Since its debut, TMD has rocked the foundation of the heavy music scene, establishing itself as the most widely viewed heavy metal news source in the world. Rocket’s acclaimed reporting has been published at all of the leading mainstream news sites, racking up over one billion impressions on Twitter since 2017.

To date, Rocket has cranked out 19,000+ posts at TMD site.

Whether it be hard hitting investigative dissertations, in depth interviews and reviews, Rocket’s fearless writing stands alone today, having earned the tag: “The Most Dangerous Rock N Roll Writer Alive.”

Rocket pulls no punches telling people how he sees things and his passion for the occult has mystified readers all around planet earth, digging deeper into the world of Satanic Ritual Abuse than any other journalist before him.

Rocket also rocks the world with his slamming remixes and mash ups that blow away the other sites!

No other name has controlled the mainstream news with such outlandish gimmicks and tricks like “Rocket” of THE METAL DEN!!

When he is not busy ripping everyone’s faces off with his ROCKET RANTS, the Dark Knight also has fun tricking other sites into posting his sensational hoax articles!!!

“Pantera’s “3 Vulgar Videos from Hell” is a must-have for any hardcore Pantera fan. One walks away from the viewing experience holding onto letting tears flow being that Dimebag Darrell is no longer with us after having been shot to death on the stage back in December of 2004. The sheer Vulgar Display Of Power going on here from the set’s first disc to the second collection of video and live performances makes it real hard to deny this legendary rockin’ Texas band the undisputed title of the greatest heavy metal band ever.”
