Metal Goddesses Media Association is an international nonprofit group that was founded on May 24, 2017. “Metal Goddesses” was originally an Instagram fan page that turned into a blog on WordPress in October, 2017 but since October, 2018 it has officially been a news and media website/webzine with full of news, interviews, tour dates, albums, singles, music videos, photo galleries and other interesting content.
Today “Metal Goddesses” is one of the largest female metal websites with famous supporters and readers such as Michalina Malisz (Eluveitie), Federica Lanna (Sleeping Romance) and Maja Shining (Forever Still). “Metal Goddesses” is also one of the world’s largest female metal online community with over ten thousand members.
The website is run by four authors and two photographers from different countries such as Hungary, Slovakia, Germany and the United States.
