A convert to metal who made my way toward metal fandom by way of Nightwish and Edenbridge, though I have very avidly expanded my horizons since then. I am very much an aficionado of traditional and melodic heavy metal for the most part, though I also enjoy progressive, thrash, folk and doom metal. I do tend to like music with a bit of a social or intellectual 'edge' to it, but not to the point where it becomes self-important, pretentious or preachy. I review on a 20-point system.
My favourite bands are: Saxon, Iron Maiden, Motörhead, Savage, Rage, Angel Dust, Agent Steel, Tad Morose, Morgana Lefay, АнДем, Forever Storm, Дивље Јагоде, Ария, Threshold, Testament and Kreator.
