Metal newbie 
Full name:
No, I'm not Paul Baloff. Should I? 
Favourite metal genre(s):
Trap Metal 

I am the grind elitist. I'm pretty much the grindcore equivalent of UltraBoris, but I do have appreciation for other genres of metal and music as well. So follow me and you will probably have a better understanding of what grindcore is. I'm typically nit-picky when it comes to extreme metal, but I' also one of the more open-minded reviewers here who doesn't have a problem with commerce music or mallcore. I'm mostly here to write reviews. I don't know what else I really should do here besides making small adjustments to releases and whatnot.

A few important things about me:

Drummer of Marutaud
Proud MA member since 20th april 2022
Hoping to get at least thousand points one day.
My heroes on this website: BastardHead, Noktorn, BuriedUnborn, Orbitball

Rating scale (it's probably more positive than other people's ratings):

100% - 80%: Great, worth listening to regularly
80% - 60%: Good, worth a listen from time to time
60% - 40%: Alright, no strong feelings towards it
40% - 20%: Bad, is not worth your time to be spent on
20% - 0%: Terrible, avoid this and don't listen to it
