Favourite metal genre(s):
Black Metal, Death Metal 

I do reviews for fun, and also to hone my English writing skills. I'm not very consistent with this, but I hope to review more material in the future. I mostly stick to unreviewed material, be it bands that I like, bands that I loathe, or bands from my country.

I don’t have a definite system for rating albums; I prefer to speak in detail about the aspects of the album than to scale them. The rating is more than a symbol to me. That said, not every album I like will have a 100% and not every album I dislike will have a 0%.

Although I tend to listen black & death metal more than anything else, I also like thrash metal, heavy metal, doom metal, goregrind & grindcore.

More concretely, here are some of the bands that I like, per genre:

Heavy metal - Iron Maiden, Mercyful Fate, King Diamond, Saxon, Manowar, Black Sabbath.

Thrash metal- Slayer, Sodom, Kreator, Destruction, Sepultura, Testament, Exodus, Metallica, Violent Force, Slaughter, Hirax, Toxic Holocaust.

Black Metal - Bathory, Venom, Hellhammer, Celtic Frost, Tormentor, Morbid, Sarcófago, Mystifier, Mayhem, Darkthrone, Emperor, Rotting Christ, Samael, Beherit, Deiphago, Black Witchery, Proclamation, Blasphemy, Dissection, Setherial, Immortal, Borknagar, Arallu, Deathspell Omega, Behexen, Abigail Williams, Ceremonial Castings, Gorgoroth, Enslaved, Abigor, Anaal Nathrakh.

Doom Metal - Goatlord, Cianide, Anathema, My Dying Bride, Paradise Lost, Candlemass, Saint Vitus, Pentagram, Cathedral, Divine Eve.

Grindcore/Goregrind - Carcass, Impetigo, Napalm Death, Insect Warfare, Assuck, Terrorizer, Dahmer, Mortician, Wormrot, Phobia.
