When Claireodactyl asked me to be a regular guest blogger here, you could’ve knocked me over with a feather. I’ve been blogging since something like 2006 over at my own site, and have had the privilege of Claire writing for me. Yes, it’s true, I’m the founding publisher/editor of Metal as Fuck. I’ve never really had much attention until this year; the first of it was an interview I did for Girls Don’t Like Metal… and now this! Wow! I’m going up in the world!
I’m going to keep this short and sweet, because nobody wants a new blogger to bang on about boring shit.
This guest blog will have a core focus, which helps me know what the hell to write next. That core focus will be music industry (Aus and Worldwide) and music criticism; but I’ll also be throwing in some Metal in Australia roundups, and the occasional feature band/album. Also, if you’re lucky, some gig reviews. Coming up soon are amazing gigs here… Macabre, Impiety, Ripper Owens, Stargazer, Mournful Congregation.
And in June I’ll be heading up to Broken Hill with Imminent Psychosis – so I’ll be able to give you all a bit of an insight into rural Aussie metal culture.
Stay tuned for my next column… which will have a look at some recent industry goings on, and other interesting tid-bits.
