Why The Name “Metal Bell Magazine”?
The ‘Tao Zhong’ was one of the earliest bells casted in Primitive China 4,000 years ago. It’s an instrument that was used to call laborers for recess after work. It was also used afterwards by the Benedictine monks to call people for prayer, as well as for social and religious gatherings in AD 500. Later, this idiophone instrument strongly became successful and was used for many other purposes.
As a result, we chose “Metal Bell” as the name for our magazine to symbolize what the BELL represented throughout history till our present days: an instrument that is a “Call for Gathering” – to gather our Rock and Metal scenes, to unite under the same Bell Call; to gather and follow artists and create a society that supports, shares and spreads the news, and to keep you updated all the time.
The “Metal” part of the name represents the material that is mostly used to manufacture bells, and as it turns out, it fits in perfectly with the fact that the main founders of this magazine are metal heads! \m//
Metal Bell will be the number one online magazine to support the “Lebanese and Middle Eastern Metal/Rock Scenes” alongside all kinds of underground forms of art. This will be the first and most important aim of this magazine.
