I write a few reviews in my (little) spare time, so I focus mainly on lesser known albums rather than on mainstream bands, as well as I prefer reviewing generally albums which left me a good impression rather than casting shit over infamously bad ones. Don't bother criticizing my style of writing and enjoy the music, we're all here to learn something about good stuff. My English is all but perfect and I'm aware of this, unfortunately it's nothing more than a passion, but I'll try to be as clear as possible. I guess my reviews are recommended if you want to get a quick idea of a release without wasting too much energy on understanding what I write. Stay Metal.

Because of what has been said above, I'm not going to re-write my horrendous first 2 or 3 reviews on this site, at least in the imminent future, despite the fact that they clearly need a revisitation. Take them as they are, though I don't think somebody has ever read them.

Also a soccer enthusiast, amateur player and great expert, as well as videogame half-nerd.

I used to have a girlfriend once, but then I took an arrow in the knee. Since I wanted the wound to heal leisurely, I started studying engineering.

Bow down to THE HOLY TRINITY OF RIFF-ISM:

Father: Sepultura - Beneath the Remains
Son: Morbid Saint - Spectrum of Death
Holy Spirit: Devastation - Idolatry
(may or may not trade places with Demolition Hammer - Epidemic of Violence)

Universally (or so) praised bands which leave me unimpressed (hatemail me at any time at dimitrimolotov86@gmail.com):

Exodus (honestly I can't stand any of their vocalist, barring maybe Rob Dukes)
Judas Priest (legendary, but I don't listen to them very often)
King Diamond (unlistenable vocals)
Megadeth (not so much more than technicality, and Rust in Peace is a bit overrated)
Meshuggah (and djent as a whole)
Overkill (not very exceptional early, boring and overlong songs recently)

...plus about 95% of black metal bands. And Machine Head. Burn My Eyes included. And Rammstein.
