Metal newbie 
Full name:
Wes Bowen 
United States 
Favourite metal genre(s):
Death, Black, Thrash 

I'm an edgy Gen Z kid who likes metal slightly more than the average edgy Gen Z kid. I mostly listen to death metal (AKA the loud), but I also have an affinity for black metal (screeching loud), progressive metal (confusing loud), thrash metal (fast loud), and grindcore (faster loud).

Some of my favorite metal bands (in semi-alphabetical order) are Allegaeon, Anthrax, Bolt Thrower, Cannibal Corpse, Deafheaven, Death, Dream Theater, Entombed, GWAR, Megadeth, Morbid Angel, Nocturnus, Nuclear Assault, Pestilence, Pig Destroyer, Power Trip, Slayer, Strapping Young Lad, Vektor, Vitriol, and Xentrix. Some of my favorite non-metal bands (also, in semi-alphabetical order) are 100 Gecs, Agent Orange, The Beatles, Black Midi, The Dead Kennedys, Death Grips, Descendents, DEVO, Herbie Hancock, Neutral Milk Hotel, Nine Inch Nails, Ninja Sex Party, Perturbator, Radiohead, Rush, and Weezer.

I'll do reviews on albums I thought were cool when I'm not being crushed by writers' block or whatever the hell teenagers do, so expect the next one never. However, in the unlikely event of me reviewing more albums, here's my rating scale.

[100-90%] A magnificent album. Who knew metal could be so beautiful?
[89-80%] A great album. It brings the goods and achieves its purpose.
[79-50%] A good album, but it bores/bored me to some extent.
[49-11%] Bad. Need I say more?
[10-0%] A laughably bad album. Arguably better than bad albums, because hey, at least this one's a joke.
