In the beginning there was a radio show called Pila Naopako. After twenty years of continuous work, the passion evolved into the idea for a magazine.
Metal Jacket Magazine was founded in 2014 by Vjeran Birimiša, and was originally meant as a website for promoting local underground bands, local record labels and distros. Since then, we have become more than that. We are now an international group who share the same passion and want to support the scene in the best way we know.
Of course, we write about local bands, shows and events, but we are widespread and diverse in opinion. On our website, you can find articles written in Croatian and English. The Croatian articles are legacy articles published before 1st March 2018 and newly published articles under the category “Local”. Everything else is in English.
If you find our idea appealing and share our passion, feel free to contact us. We are in constant search for authors and photographers from all across Europe.
