Raw magazine (rock)

Raw Magazine was a biweekly heavy metal magazine published by EMAP.

The magazine was a rival to Kerrang! which was published by the people behind Sounds. However, when the publisher of Sounds and Kerrang! decided to concentrate on trade papers such as Music Week, the Kerrang! brand was sold onto EMAP who decided it was the stronger brand amongst Metal fans.

Due to this, Raw Magazine was relaunched in the mid 1990s as a biweekly sister magazine to EMAP's monthly Select, with its musical focus shifted from that of metal to that of Britpop. This relaunch confused longterm readers, and with sales falling, the magazine did not manage to survive into the 2000s.

In 1993 a weekly television programme named Raw Power was launched to accompany the magazine. It later changed its name to Noisy Mothers when Raw ceased publication.
