Languages: English and O))). More of that second one.
Personal text: I like music that's extreme in a boundary pushing way... the level of creativity, the shamanic sense of ritualism to it all, the absolute abrasiveness and raw power, or some combination of these. Whether underground or of a more mainstream variety, all the music I consume, metal and non, reflects that insatiable urge for finding artists unafraid to push the envelope. I'll share what I know with you if you do the same.
