Personal text: My name is Dane, and I work as a Family Rehabilitation Specialist doing in-home family coaching with an element of wilderness therapy to it. When I am not working, a good deal of my time is focused on my various hobbies. I am the vocalist and Theremin player for band, and we're in the process of recording an album and trying to book shows for a regional tour. I've also begun writing my first graphic novel which is even more evidence that I love comic books. I'm the sort of guy who would much rather go to a convention or festival than an amusement park. Well I think that is enough of my ADD rambling for now.

Publications: Reviews (32)  
Languages: English, Polish, some German and Russian
Personal text: I appear very self-opinionated, but i'm actually very friendly and like to talk with clever people. Dumb amoebas piss me off. Bright peeps stimulate my brain cells and make me overly talkative. Which I am anyway.
I usually go against the flow and question authorities, classics, and generally everything that people consider as a given.

Fat & Sassy!

In real life: Ryan (27) from Hall of the Mountain King, USA
Working on: Trying to contribute more as one may be reading this. >_>
Likes: Frank Zappa, clapping my hands, getting ready to rock and proceeding to do so, being ridiculous, making situations awkward, animals, films, candy, space clowns... and... uh... you. I like *you*.
Hates: Phony music, lack of integrity, bananas, people who claim they like "all music" but really don't have much of an interest in the art at all.
Musical taste: Anything that pushes the envelope in terms of originality usually peaks my interest, but I still know how to friggin' rock (or groove) to some more classic/conservative types of music.
Album picks: Arkona - Явь
  Satan - Life Sentence
  Hammerforce - Access Denied

Personal text: I love music. I find the complexity of the human psyche extremely intriguing. Sometimes, I can get a bit romantic when talking about my passion for the art of music. Because of this, I may tell you that I *love* when music takes me on rides, on the wings of beauty, into the mysterious vortex of imagination deep within my subconsciousness. =3 Remarks like this *may* come off as a bit cheesy, but hey... not a fuck is being given right now.

Cheers to you all, and I wish you the best of luck in using this website and the internet as a convenient tool in broadening your tastes in music. ;3

Languages: Spanish, Swedish and English
Personal text: I come across as shy at first. But once I have enough confidence, I tell whatever is in my mind so my close friends or people I like from the beginning see me as a trasparent person. I won't change my way of saying things no matter who I'm talking to, that's why some people think I'm arrogant but I'm actually very humble... It's just that I treat everyone equally.

R Lewis

In real life: Luigi (19) from Bologna, Italy
Working on: Reviews, news, random edits. Interviews? Constant annoying presence, in general.
Likes: Reading, TV series, cinema, sports (both to practice & watch), vintage clothes, tidiness, irony, Mediterranean food. Last, but not the least, Sasha Grey.
Hates: Stereotypes, my English, drugs, smoking, putting on weight again (yes, I was a fatty), both blasphemy and religious fanatism, having to shout, how people cook pasta outside of Italy
Musical taste: Most melodic metal, hard rock, punk, post-rock, everything that doesn't suck. Lately also some extreme power and atmospheric black. Also love to rest to blues, soft jazz, country and funk
Latest discovery: Arrow Haze
Publications: Articles (3)  Reviews (76)  Interviews (3)  
Languages: Italian, English, a bit of Spanish
Personal text: I'm just a student who likes knowing what he's listening to. I find myself sometimes a little pathetic, but everyone I meet say I'm funny, so, let'em say - positive propaganda is always welcome.

Born and living in the North-East of Italy. Proudly. But if this dear crisis doesn't end, I'm ready to emigrate in order to work. So better improve this damn English.

Breaking Bad, Game Of Thrones, The Walking Dead and House Of Cards fanboy.

Please, don't be the nth person to say me that mine is not a "metal face". I already know I'm similar to Bruno Mars. And this is quite sad.

Completely sobered up on June 1st, 2014.
