In the past: I've been running two fanzines, Ravenclaw (one issue in 1999) and Panzerfaust (5 issues between 2002-06, plus an unreleased issue from 2007-08). Also writes for since areound 2002

Nowadays: I listen to all sorts of metal; old school death metal being my favourite, the Swedish scene especially with Dismember and Grave as favourite bands. The present Swedish scene gives an enormous thrill, bands like Demonical, Repugnant, Necrovation, Bastard Priest, Maim, Miasmal, Paganizer and all other Rogga's bands, Facebreaker - they all simply kill.
Love also Dutch bands - old Gorefest, Sinister, Thanatos, Pestilence and first of all Asphyx!
Polish scene also rules - Vader, Armagedon, Betrayer, Behemoth, Lost Soul, Trauma, Hate and newer bands like Throneum, Embrional...
Black metal bands - so many to mention; so many styles, from good old Burzum and Darkthrone through the mid 90's Gehenna, Limbonic Art, Arcturus, Satyricon sort of playing to the recent acts - 1349, Agalloch, Helrunar, Funeral Mist, Watain... Eh, so many to mention that there will always be some I forgot about.
I also like many thrash metal bands, heavy metal bands (Up the Irons!!!), even some doom metal and post metal stuff. Metal music has so much to offer I hardly listen to anything else.
