You can and probably will contact us on a whole range of things from reviews to advice and best glitter to use on a cake.


We don’t run on wishes and candy floss, we need ads to keep up our work. In return for your dosh, you’ll be placing an ad with a long running and fun website with a very dedicated readership. We will provide you will full analytics for your advert, can provide artwork and give you some top tips from our experience. Just ask us. For all advertising enquiries starting at just £5, email Nix at nix[at]


We do this for the love of the music, possible insanity and for some great experiences. If you would like to contribute to Pure Rawk we are always looking for writers (live reviews, release reviews), interviewers, columnists, photographers and videographers. Whether you have done work for another publication before or looking to get some experience, we would like to hear from you.

Please note that writers need to be 18+ due to some gig entrance restrictions.

Contact the editor (Nix) on nix[at] with a sample of your work from a previous publication or blog if this looks like something up your street. We can’t pay but the perks are great and you’ll be part of a fantastic team, passionate about rock and metal with years of experience in and around the industry.

Review Submissions Policy

Pure Rawk is always on the lookout for the next great band to listen to and would love hear your offerings. Please be aware that we receive a lot of stuff every week, and it is really important to follow these simple guidelines.

We now only accept digital submissions. It also saves you a bit of dough and time too. Email a download link (Dropbox / Haulix / remote host etc) and bio / press release to Nix at nix[at] Do not send tracks physically in the email, they clog up our inbox and make us sad.

Please be aware that we may not review all material and we certainly do not review material not ‘genre-associated’ with the site.
