What is Iron Fist magazine? Well, the short answer is that it’s the brand spanking new metal magazine for die-hard metallers, coming at you from September 2012. The long answer is what you’ll get when you listen to our interview with Louise Brown, head-honcho of Iron Fist (and former editor of Terrorizer to boot), which Hugh semi-drunkenly conducted with her about this new project after cornering her at Bloodstock Open Air 2012..
