Full name:
Favourite metal genre(s):
Pagan/Folk/Viking Metal 

[I'm aware that my English grammar is a bit off].

I like all metal genres, even a bit of alternative metal, metalcore and grind (sorry, I'm not a "trve metalhead" and I don't want to be one). But after several years I can realize that my main tastes (but not only) are traditional heavy metal, speed metal, power metal, melodic death metal, black metal, and Viking metal. Basically every thing related to NWOBHM-rooted melodic guitars, speed metal relatives, epic stuff... and black metal. I have also a huge fascination for folk metal scenes from all around the world, it's very interesting how metal genres can easily be merged with traditional musics.

My contribution in Metal Archives consists primarily on adding bands to the site, fixing typos in Hispanic bands pages, changing logos and cover arts that are unnecessarily big or small and adding missing albums or other versions of them. Also whichever other thing from time to time when I can.

- Joined to Metal Archives in 2017 only for the "similar artists" thing (it's very good for finding new bands!) and started to be an active contributor at some point between March and April 2019.
- Metal demon since February 09, 2020.

Some favourite bands (metal in general): Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Saxon, Angel Witch, Diamond Head, Accept, Helloween, Gamma Ray, Stratovarius, HammerFall, Grave Digger, Blind Guardian, Primal Fear, Candlemass, Altar of Oblivion, Sodom, Warbringer, Slayer, Havok, Suicidal Angels, Sepultura, Dismember, Morbid Angel, Bloodbath, Dark Tranquillity, In Flames, Amon Amarth, Kalmah, Children of Bodom, Motörhead, Venom, Toxic Holocaust, Celtic Frost, Darkthrone, Immortal, Dark Funeral, Belphegor, Bathory, etc.

Some favourite bands (folk metal related): Borknagar, Falkenbach, Romuvos, Windir, Mithotyn, Skálmöld, Týr, Heidevolk, Ensiferum, Equilibrium (before "Renegades"), Svartsot, Korpiklaani, Finntroll, Finsterforst, Skyclad, Cruachan, Primordial, Eluveitie, Furor Gallico, Elvenking, In Extremo (not in MA, sadly), Лешак (Leshak), Аркона (Arkona), Nokturnal Mortum, Amocualli, Yaotl Mictlan, Cemican, DelDesierto, Tierramystica, Chaska, Folkheim, Arraigo, Impvreza, Myrath, AlNamrood, Whispered, Nine Treasures, Tengger Cavalry, 暴君 (Bloody Tyrant), 黑麒 (Black Kirin), etc.

Important note about my submitted bands and my edit history in general: I don't support either far-left nor far-right politics. All RABM, NSBM and political stuff in general I submit/edit is for Metal Archives purposes. The same thing with "white metal" and "unblack metal" bands.

Relative to the above, the bands I listen to DON'T represent my thinking/beliefs/ideologies/etc. I'm actually nihilist and agnostic. My username is only a reference to folk metal as a genre of music. It did not matter to refer to another genre as well. I do have certain fascination for some Pagan movements, though.
