What is Workhorse?

Workhorse is a print zine about getting things done in heavy underground music.

Workhorse #3 with commissioned cover art from American “esoteric artist,” Tom Denney.

Doom, stoner, thrash, punk, crust, sludge, grind, death metal, black metal, good old-fashioned heavy metal, all those sub-sub-sub-genres that didn’t exist two weeks ago… If it grows from the seed Black Sabbath planted in 1970, that’s our jam.

We pick the brains of musicians and service providers (producers, bookers, labels, artists, etc.) about the nuts and bolts of getting music into people’s ears. Lots of ink for DIY, touring, merch, band management and how this particular brand of sausage gets made. Take a look at our back issues to get a better idea.

The first 1,500 subscriptions to the print edition are free for US musicians and industry folks.*

Just give us your address and we’ll mail it right to you. Questions?

Thanks for reading this far. You’re a trooper.


* We’re capping it at 1,500 free subs for now, but that will increase as advertisers come on board. Free print subs are US-only due to shipping costs. Anyone anywhere will always be able to read digital copies for free.
