I am a 44-year-old father and grandfather that has been a life long metal lover. I purchased my first metal album, KISS Destroyer, as a new release in 1976, and somehow convinced my younger brother to use his allowance money on KISS Alive. I haven’t looked back since. From that time music has always been a source of inspiration, comfort, and company throughout my life. Whether I was feeling down or needed company during the long graduate school night’s music has been there.
Now, music is something I share with my two sons. I am not bound by any one genre of metal; I like to listen to all types of metal. It is my belief that artificial borders should not bind appreciation of music. If music strikes a chord with you, listen. Focusing on one type of music mean that a listener will miss out on a universe of other good music.
