The Crew

Fortunately, longevity is one of Last Rites’ strong-suits. We’ve had more than our fair share of amazing contributors over the years (last count: 72), many of whom have gone on to bigger and less better things, and a considerable number of us continue to attack the keyboard with a decade or more of MetalReview/LastRites history under our belts. Credit those Friday afternoon lemon squares in the break room and weekend trips to the Catskills.

That said, we’re always on the lookout for new blood to add to the ranks. We’re picky, though; not only do we expect skill with words and grammar, we require a genuine knowledge and history with the genre, as well as the same sort of ravenous hunger for exploration that the rest of the crew enjoys. If you’re interested in writing for Last Rites, we encourage you to reach out to us at: contactlastrites AT gmail DOT com.
