Favourite metal genre(s):
atmospheric metal of all kinds 

My reviews are dedicated mostly to the bands that conjure the darkest, strangest and most seductive atmospheres in nearly any subgenre. In my reviews, I hope to share the same excitement I felt upon discovering all of the unrecognized manifestations of the metal underground: those forgotten demos or even full-length albums reeking of true obscurity.

In short, my allegiance is to truly underground bands, and I will not be adding to the already copious amount of reviews which most recognized bands have garnered by virtue of holding a classic status or simply by the vice of succumbing to trends.

On a side note, I also take requested reviews. So if you're a band member or label owner looking for feedback on currently unreviewed material, I'd be glad to write for you. I must admit that, over time, I've grown somewhat fastidious about the kinds of albums I prefer to review. I give highest priority to particularly underappreciated and unique acts of the atmospheric variety in most subgenres. The last thing anyone needs to read about is the latest trendy tech. death clone or uninspired revivalists who have "gone retro" due to a lack of imagination and originality.
