About TMD

THE METAL DEN was created by rock journalist/publicist, 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.

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.

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.”
