I'm addicted to melodic, thrash, power and hair metal of the 1970s and 1980s, but too young to have experienced it live. My ongoing obsessions are Iron Maiden, Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, Megadeth and Metallica, but I love discovering new, underground bands with insane talent rivaling the popular metal bands.

I love going to shows, but being in college and living with too many girly girls means no money to buy tickets and nobody with which to go. I'll be moving to Middle of Nowhere, Oregon, soon, and I'm sure shows will be even less frequent.

I'll be graduating in June with my bachelor's degree in Journalism from Ohio University with the hopes of becoming a sports writer, but I've just recently discovered how much I enjoy writing about my passion: metal. That's not something they teach you in journalism school, and I enjoy writing music reviews much more than the standard news story, which tends to stifle creative thoughts and words.

Long live metal \m/
