Poetry and Art

People send me loads of very cool stuff for heavy metal therapy, and we’ve tended to focus mainly on stories but I’ve recently had a few submissions from poets. All of these people are connected to the page in some way even though the poems aren’t all metal related. This is a collection of recent ones.

What if Heavy Metal Never Happened?

The Monsters in my Head

Shorter Poems

We are also pleased to have our first art and heavy metal based submission

Maarten’s Paintings


Other Stuff we Like

Another cool artist to check out is Sam who’s work is inspired by his experiences of mental health difficulties and autism, but also heavily influenced by his love of death metal!


Mark Humphrey is a metalhead artist who does works on mental health, and stuff for metal bands too. Check out his site:
