The Australian Metal Guide (Aus Metal Guide) is designed as a free-use repository of information relating to heavy metal and heavy rock bands originating from or based in Australia. As a wiki, it is open to contributions from all registered members who are free to add, edit and change information as they see fit. The administrator can be contacted via email with regards to enquiries, suggestions, copyright infringement or any issues of concern. Emails will be responded to at the earliest convenience.
The Australian Metal Guide first went online at geocities.com/goreripper in 1999 and was published in book form by Moonlight Publications (Bendigo) in 2002. An international edition was published by Iron Pages (Berlin) in 2004.
