Favourite metal genre(s):

Review scores don't necessarily stack up against one another. 5% rating increments are used. To compare, I've selected beers and other similar beverages. With beer and music alike, it's all a matter of taste.

100% - *insert favorite IPA* (Flawless)
95% - *insert favorite seasonal* (Exceptional and incredible)
90% - *insert favorite local brew* (Amazing)
85% - Sam Adams Boston Lager (Great)
80% - Heineken (Really good)
75% - Yuengling Lager (Pretty good)
70% - Rolling Rock (good)
65% - Pabst Blue Ribbon (good for a cheap price)
60% - Coors Lite (average with memorable moments)
55% - Bud Lite (average, hints of effort)
50% - Natty Lite (average, boring, nothing memorable)
45% - Miller Lite (below average, weak)
40% - Angry Orchard (weak with mostly glaring flaws)
35% - Twisted Tea (entire release is a flaw)
30% - warm lite beers with lots of head (flaws becoming intolerable)
25% - non-alcoholic beer (pointless, not worth a listen)
20% - warm non-alcoholic beer (not only pointless, but painful to listen to)
15% - warm non-alcoholic beer that's mostly head (see 20% but you're in a bad mood)
10% - may as well not drink (insulting to the listener)
5% - definitely don't drink (one listen will ruin your night)
0% - bong water (zero reason to pursue, anyone who enjoys likely has issues)

General Summary of yours truly:
I play the guitar and piano. Avid party goer and into fitness - lifting and running/swimming. Working out keeps me happy. Summer is the greatest time of the year, I despise winter, thus I'm a big beach/mountain goer. Horror Films and Star Wars are my favorite movies, although I don't spend a lot of time in front of the TV. I do enjoy reading when I get the time. I love animals, so I'm a vegan. I graduated college in May of 2017. I currently work as a detailer/drafter. My company builds stages for big name musicians. I've worked on Ozzy Osbourne design and loaded in a Bon Jovi show. Feel free to add me on Facebook, I'm as social as one gets. Follow me on the Instagram: @nickedgirv

-W.A.S.P. - Re-Idolized:

-Destruction - Thrash Anthems II:

-Alice Cooper - Paranormal:

-Nathaniel Kinsey - Making The Most Out Of Nothing:
