this is my very own and special section on this site and I'm supposed to tell something about myself.
I remember myself playing Killer Instinct at a friends' house while he was putting on Siamese Dream by the Smashing Pumpkins. I was eleven years old and this was it, my first signs of seperation from mass media influence; on a certain level of course. I took my dad to the local store and he got me a copy of that record as well as a t-shirt. When I got back home, I did nothing but listening to the intro of 'Today', the shoveling sound on 'Spaceboy' and, probably the best chorus ever on 'Cherub Rock'. Since then, music became a more and more important factor in my life, resulting in my first festival visit; Lowlands in 1998 when I was 15. Concerts, research on the internet and hours in local record stores followed aftwerwards and I discoverd I didn't only like metal, although this genre is the most interesting by far in music industry.
When Tibor (Chief Editor) asked me to join Metalrage, I think it's about three years ago, I immediately said yes which truly opened doors I never thought would be open for me. Whether it's about seperating shitwholes from the genious, meeting bands or visiting shows, I think it is a good thing that all of us still love to keep ourselves busy with the kind of music we appreciate so much. In my opinion, that feeling can be the only reason why we will stay focused and provide something interesting for you to read.
