Favourite metal genre(s):
NWOB/THM & Doom Metal 

Am a huge fan of the so called "new wave of traditional heavy metal" as well as "doom" metal but am always open to diverging genres - hey, as long it sounds good, I'm all ears (and flailing limbs!)

Although my reviews are quite hammy at times bear in mind I do it
for the kids; well, that and I often can't help myself!

for courage in urban combat
But there are silver stars shining in the sky
that the astronomers can't explain."

"And yet even today people ask in surprise:
What is the use of these voyages of [musical]
exploration? What good do they do us?
Little brains, I always answer to myself,
have only room for thoughts of bread and butter."

who are waiting to be offended by something."
