Alex_P's profile

Metal newbie 
Full name:
Alex P. 
Favourite metal genre(s):
NWOBHM and Progressive 

I am Alex_P of the Number of the Blog. I'd recommend checking us out, because we're fine people and we're always happy to have new members in our community. We rate releases on a scale of 1-6 out of 6, with 1 being not only bad but offensive and the value of 6 varying depending on the author. Personally, I consider a 6 to be reserved for perfect albums, such as Awaken the Guardian. We'll also do recommendations for certain albums, in which case there's no score posted. I also write for my school paper, the Concordian (point scale is out of 10), and I work for Vancouver's Skinny Magazine. I'm known as Morbid Alex, and I give scores out of 666. There's a certain amount of faux-metal posturing involved because we try to keep it humorous, but rest assured that I am sincere in my allegiance to metal, and I don't review stuff based on how much the hipsters will like it.

My collection is pretty much always out of date, and I don't list MP3s, because that's what nubs do.
