Favourite metal genre(s):
Heavy, Power & Speed Metal 

-Though I'm very much into bands from everywhere, you will find almost all of the bands I submit are from Japan. Otherwise I will be adding discographies or other missing band data to any random bands I encounter. You will also find me fixing errors within discographies and lineups when I catch them. As for reviews, I will usually review things I really enjoy, though I'll occasionally review something I found to be a disappointment.

-Feel free to contact me for help with reports of any kind regarding most bands, Japanese ones in particular being my forte.

-If you can't find an old Japanese release and I have it in my collection, I'd be more than happy to let you hear it, as long as it's a decent amount of years out of print and won't affect the band.


-I help run Japanese Metal Forum (, if you're a fan of Japanese metal, or are merely curious about the country's music, come check us out, tons of discussion about bands spanning many genres, including a few non-metal ones too.

-I also am a mod over on Heavy Metal Rarities (, though my activity there can be a bit limited at times. You're best-served trying to contact me here on M-A, on Japanese Metal Forum or over on YouTube.

-If you happen to be interested, I really like talking music history and have written a few articles and guides of varying size for JMF which can be found here:
