Andreas_Hansen's profile

Full name:
Favourite metal genre(s):
Speed, power, thrash 

I just try to put down on paper the thoughts that come to my mind when listening to music.

On my review website I favor thrash and power metal albums as these genres are my favorites.

I think there shouldn't be "true" or "false" genre nor bands, as every band has something interesting to offer. In the same idea, there are no "true" or "false" fans that "if you didn't listen to Ride the Lightning you ain't a true metal fan" or "Abominable Putridity's singer is good af you stupid poser" or some silly edgy-teen debate. Just listen to what seems matching your emotions or tastes and enjoy. It's just music after all.

Additional discography :

AC/DC - Highway to Hell
AC/DC - Back in Black
Alice Cooper - Welcome 2 My Nightmare
Elvis Presley - "All you need is..." (compilation)
Rammstein - Sehnsucht
Rammstein - Reise Reise
Rammstein - Liebe ist fur Alle Da
Rammstein - Volkerball (Live)
Slipknot - Vol 3. The Subliminal Verses

Writer, reviewer, musician, French teacher, linguist (as an amateur) and art lover.

I review almost only albums I liked because I prefer to highlight what's good and promote bands than denigrate and trash them.

I favor quality over quantity. I've many other things to do in life so my reviews come usually quite slow, especially since I don't hesitate to take my time. Albums may take years to be created, so the least to do is not reviewing them in thirty seconds on a paper draft.

Additional reviews:

Ghoultown - Life After Sundown (97%)
Boston - Boston (85%)
Asia - XXX (77%)

For what it's worth, here is a little shout-out to some MA reviewers I like to read even if I don't always agree with their point of view (that's normal). If you want some decent and quality reviews go check them.
Five_Nails, kluseba, CHAIRTHROWER, hells_unicorn, gasmask_colostomy, napalm_satan, Diamhea, TrooperEd, Silicon Messiah, autothrall, Empyreal, bayern and a whole bunch of others.

Yeah you know what I mean. Also, a big thanks to all the people who contribute to this website and keep it alive. Yayy everything is beautiful and life's great.

No it's not.

I'm also really interested in middle eastern folk metal.
