Heavy Metal Thunder

He who refuses to take part in modern mediocrity will forever stand alone, an outcast. He is the bringer of change, changes that instil fear in all those who go with fashion's flow. Their powers come from others, not from within. They are false! Woe unto them for the bringers of change have banded together. The time is now! We cannot be stopped! We are riding up, riding hard on the will of the people.

The battle rages. Choose your side.


Fighting the world.

I hear the sound in a Metal way...

Let's establish this from the word go - I am a Heavy Metal man first and foremost. And that's mostly what I do. Listen to music, digest the music, learn the music, live the music. Go to gigs, get drunk, have a quiet riot. Learn the stuff on guitar and bass. Bits and bobs on the side pop up - street teaming, attempts at arranging gigs (none successful so far). You'd be right if you said it's a rather one-dimensional way to go about life, but I love it and your taste in music is far inferior to mine anyway!

Mandatory name-dropping of favourite bands - Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, ManOwaR, Slayer ('83 - '91), Black Sabbath (esp. w/ Ronnie James Dio or Tony Martin), Deep Purple, Whitesnake, Rainbow, Michael Schenker Group, Helloween, Hammerfall and many many more...

Heavy Metal is the focus, with dabblings in Thrash, Power, Glam/Hair, Black, Death (inc. Gothenburg stuff but only a teeny bit) and NSBM. Other forms of music exist in my world too, but I don't like to flaunt them...

Manowar Manowar livin' on the road...

This bit used to be about anime...which I'm not really all that interested in now! But it's good fun...this stuff I used to enjoy/wouldn't mind digging out again soon:

Battle Angel Alita
Dominion/Dominion Tank Police
Ghost In The Shell
Macross Plus
Tenchi Muyo + Tenchi Universe
El Hazard

Kudos to Final Fantasy stuff also. 7 and 9 are most excellent! 10 and 6 are cool also. 8 is geigh. 5 is proving to be a bit of a drag...

The evil that men do lives on and on
