A LOOK BACK AT SOME OF THE BEST PHOTOS PUBLISHED IN SOWHAT!


There are so many more than we could fit that we can safely say youre only seeing
the tip of a rather large and wonderful iceberg of Metalliphotography. Enjoy these
shots from over the years (and pages) selected by our art director, Mark Abramson.

SHORTEST STRAW WINNERS FOR THE CONTEST FROM ISSUE 22.2


No verbal muss, no verbal fuss, just straight to the winners circle here with
the winners of Straw 22.2, which was to design a roaringly great
FearFestEvil poster for Kirk!
The GRAND PRIZE winner is Jason Andrews, who has created a very
catchy piece of poster art. He will receive a signed copy of Kirks book, Too Much
Horror Business. Our first runner-up is Audrey Charlier, who has
done a fine job embodying classic poster art and merging with Hammett elements.
She will receive a KVH goodie-pak. Our final runner-up is Tiffany
Cavazos, whose largely ink (with some pencil) submission again captures some
key elements of the KVH vibe. Again, a KVH goodie pak is heading her way.
Special mention goes to Maria Lewandowska for a wonderful pencil
drawing of Kirk in zombie-corpse-split profile. Not a poster per se, but a fine piece of
art nonetheless, which would make a great Fillmoresque-type piece of poster art.
WELL DONE TO EVERYONE AND THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH

Do what the fuck you want and then


lets try and do something a little more honed in.
Do the wild take at the end, stuff like that
thats really freeing, and feeling really more
like youre an artist instead of you have
a job to do, you clocked in and now we have
to have it done by this time.

Were good at standing up to adversity, and


when the odds are against us, we find something
within ourselves that seems to be common,
and we just kind of like to bond together and do
whatever we need to do to stand up to
whatever obstacles are thrown in our face.

Theres a groove thing happening


that happens. Its been nurtured through our
touring, whatever challenges weve had.
And it just feels really good. Its a vibe
thats happening when were
playing together.

The only thing that Im


pretty fucking sure of is Ive just spent
the last four or five days really immersed
in the editing of the basic tracks.
I mean, it just sounds like Metallica.
Thats the only thing I know.
Its like its Metallica.
