I'm into the slow, heavy, sad stuff. I love a wide array of different metal styles and bands, but doom has a special place in my heart. I have a special liking for death/doom, gothic metal, sludge, funeral doom, especially if it's stuff from the early-90's. The albums I cherish the most are the earliest works of Katatonia, Funeral, and Ulver, followed by Acid Bath, My Dying Bride, Crowbar, Electric Wizard, Paradise Lost, among various others.

I also have a special liking for gothic rock and ethereal wave, namely Dead Can Dance, Cocteau Twins, Fields of the Nephilim, Sisters of Mercy, Chelsea Wolfe, Joy Division, you name it.

When I'm not geeking out over bands online, I'm writing sad doom riffs and angry lyrics for Tel. I also have various scraps of songs written for a million side projects that I've never followed through on.

Music stuff aside, I love slasher movies from the 80's, drinking beer with my buddies, catching shows with my partner (who is another doom lover like myself), and nature hikes.
