I'm a freelance writer, screenwriter/filmmaker, and music journalist with an emphasis on metal and hard rock. In addition to this fantastic and powerful site, I am a staffer for Outburn Magazine and HelRocks.com and have contributed heavily to CosmosGaming.com and MetalEater.com. I'm a fan of nearly all things metal, and while I may have my preferences, I try to keep an open mind about anything that comes down the pike.

What I love most about being a part of the metal community is the close interaction with artists I admire. The bands I love are far too many to list here, so instead I'll list those whose members I've gone out of my way to interview:

Fear Factory, Nevermore, Firewind, PowerGlove, Dimmu Borgir, Death Angel (2x), As I Lay Dying (2x), Kalmah, Kataklysm, Sepultura (2x), Blackguard, Destrophy, Unearth, Kamelot, Sabaton, Nightrage, Evile, Testament, Revocation, Sylosis, The Ritual, The Kandidate, Napalm Death, Lacuna Coil (2x), Machine Head, The Empire Shall Fall/Killswitch Engage, Madball, In Flames (2x), Heidevolk, Eluveitie (2x), Children Of Bodom, 3 Inches Of Blood, Ex Deo, Diecast, Krisiun (2x), 4ARM, Odium, Holy Grail (2x), Derelict, Ill Niño, Rage Nucléaire/Cryptopsy, Rage, Helloween, Kreator, Ektomorf, Living Sacrifice, Destruction, SingleSide, Misery Index, Allegaeon, Face Of God, Avatar, No One.
