I got into rock music (or should say I fell in love with the scene) when I was seventeen years old, I used to be into the club underground scene when ‘Prodigy, the Jilted Generation album first came out. The first Metal Track that I ever listened to was Metallica’s “Nothing Else Matters”… I played it over and over again, I couldn’t get enough of it, think it was being pumped in to my veins! After that I started listening to other Rock/Metal & Grunge Music
Most of my childhood was spent being forced to listen to my sister’s mix tapes of Kd Lang, The Cranberries, Morrissey, The Beautiful South and The Smiths. Trust me when I was a young lad that shit was not cool, especially with my sister’s unashamedly singing along out the car window. It was a blessing on a Saturday mornings when mother put on her Motown cassettes. I’ve gone through many changes over the years from pop to jungle

I was 9 years old when I discovered rock music, sitting in my living room (probably playing My Little Pony) when I heard this amazing sound coming from the TV, it was 1987 and Def Leppard were performing their hit single 'Animal' on a weekly chart show called 'The Roxy'. I got up and stood right in front of the TV the whole time they were on. I couldn't believe my eyes and ears, the long hair, ripped jeans, twin guitars and even a one armed drummer!

Head Of Reviews
Growing up in a house where the likes of Deep Purple and Rainbow were played regularly, it would be unusual if I hadn’t become a huge fan of rock music! I enjoy everything from across the rock and metal spectrum, but my heart lies with the riffs and melodies produced by the likes of Iron Maiden, Alter Bridge and Trivium (to name but a few). I am always excited by new music and am here to give my penny’s worth on the latest the rock/metal scene has to offer.

Ever since I was 12 I’ve been in love with all things fast and heavy. The music of Evile changed my life in a way that lead to a burgeoning love of thrash metal. As time has passed I’ve developed my tastes further and now I’m immersing myself in the world of hardcore. If it makes me feel like I can headbutt down a brick wall chances are I’ll love it. Trap Them and Every Time I Die are recent favourites, but I’ll always carry a flame for Machine Head
