About The Writers: June Activities
Metalunderground.com is run by a variety of individuals who are passionate about both metal and music in general. Many of our staff members have side projects going on, and those of you who keep in touch via social networks, email, and the like, may have already heard about them. I wanted to take this opportunity to highlight for our readers some of our current staff activities and their involvement in the metal community.
Doug (aka deathbringer) is busy working on the much demanded browse-able archive of columns and op/eds, revamping the photo gallery, and more. He just recently launched a bands by country list on the main bands page, if you haven't seen it yet. He's also excited that EyeHateGod and Nachtmystium are coming through his little town and plans to cover the show for our readers.
David (aka Rockstar_Scribbler) is currently promoting his book "Rock Stars: The rise, fall, and rise of 80's front men into pop culture." A paperback version is currently available through Lulu Publishing, and a Kindle version will be published this Fall through Oak Tree Press. For reviews and more information on "Rock Stars" go to this location. David is also working on a new segment for his weekly column, The Rockstar Ramblings, adding a "Mailbag" email address for readers to send in questions, comments, and feedback. He will then be picking the best submissions and posting them periodically in the column with answers, feedback, and hopefully a laugh or two.
Frank (aka Progressivity_In_All) is a Music Licensing Representative at SESAC in Nashville, TN. He was formerly the front man for Dark Hound and now runs a solo rock band in the vein of Porcupine Tree and Blackfield titled Flight Plan. Frank is working with ET Brown from Dark Hound to start Rampant Struggle Records in Nashville, as well as a promotion company titled "Nashville M.A.R.C.H. -- Metal And Rock Community Helpers."
Pierre (aka chaos_3:16) is currently working on two recording projects - a heavy metal concept album titled "Circle of Shadows" and a progressive rock/metal project named "Gillen H20." You can keep update about the projects through the Gillen H20 MySpace page. Pierre does product reviews on music gear aimed at a younger audience who still see gear without all the industry smoke and mirrors in place. In regards to the reviews, Pierre stated "I strip away the illusions, and simplify the explanations, and let the functionality and tone of the products stand on it's own merit without swaying them with flashy licks and death defying fretboard antics, so they make the best most informed decisions when purchasing gear." You can check out the video reviews at this location.
Matt (aka Dasher10) just recently started a new band entitled Habu. Matt commented in regards to the new project "I may need to fire a member over musical differences come our second practice. It's fun to navigate those politics."
Ty (aka xFiruath) is currently in the process of setting up several new high profile interviews for bands with upcoming releases. Without giving too much away, let's just say you'd be a "Sucka" if you didn't "Scream" for a certain album. He's also hoping we get a new Opeth album soon and can't wait to hear how Septic Flesh plans on topping the "Communion" album.
We'll be updating what our writers are up to on the first Saturday of every month, so check back next month to stay up to date on the activity of the Metalunderground.com staff.
