WHAT CAN YOU SUBMIT ?

  • INTERVIEW / REVIEW / Live REPORT

Raw Black Metal / Death Metal / avant-garde extreme music / Blackenend punk / blackened Grindcore / Doom / Sludge (No NSBM, no RAC).

Before interviewing a project for Styga, ask us to be sure we will publish it.

Stryga prioritize projects including POC, women & non-binary musicians.

Because we don’t find in others music zines the real diversity of people bringing the underground alive. There are already plenty of Metal zines talking about white cis men projetcs only, without aknowledging it (so if you think our selection is unfair, the majority of zines selection should also be if you’re not disingenuous). Nevertheless, the main criterion is still the music quality or originality regarding the subgenres we chose to promote.
