Ever since I discovered my Dad’s Doors and Alice Cooper records, I have had an all encompassing passion for music. I attended my first gig (The Almighty) in 1994 and have been attending gigs all over the world ever since. I have always been into the heavier side of music but have definite eclectic tastes. hardcore, grindcore, death metal, punk, sludge metal, hip hop and doom are some of favourites but if it’s good I’ll give it a listen and am always on the lookout for new bands, artists and albums. Reviewing albums and gigs is a big passion for me too and am always on the lookout to do more and more.
