Hi everyone.

It was 10 years ago when I first logged in here.

In the ensuing months this thread became a feed for bands and artists I had the pleasure of interviewing. The months turned to years as I honed my skills as a "music journalist."

Truth be told, my shenanigans here at Metal Archives paved the way for my career as a professional writer from the far side of the world. A very strange progression, I must admit.

But this 2017 I revived my music writing to participate in Defiant. I'm appalled by the state of the world today, when autocracy and chronic warfare are running amok, with human rights and liberty being undermined by the state on a whim. Not just in my country, but in others as well.

I want to fight back against the darkness by creating a written testament to the music of our current epoch.

If there are any artists, producers, bands, or organizers here at Metal Archives who are vehemently anti-fascist, anti-authoritarian, anti-Nazi, and just plain angry at the current leadership in Washington, DC, I want to know about it.

So please post updates on your activities and plans. Get in touch--or PM me--so I can see if there's a story to write about you.


\m/ Hail and Kill \m/

I had a quick look at your site and you have some pretty high quality interview and such. I especially like the Light This City interview. Are you looking for lesser-well known bands to interview as well?

You think I'll just fade away into obscurity?

You think this thread is going to recede to the farthest pits of the metal-archives forums and be forgotten?

You think I'm just a flash in the pan?

The fuck I am.
