I guess this is where I am supposed to tell you a little about me and my interests, so let’s dive straight into this shall we?
My name is Jack and I’m relatively new to all these music-writing-reviewing shenanigans and whatnot, I play guitar and write for a studio based progressive metal band. I also host a small scale radio show where I promote new bands and argue with my co-host (what do you mean you don’t like Turbowolf?!).
I currently study Music Technology and Media at Andover College, alongside learning music theory and multimedia journalism online. I first got into music properly when someone showed me and old Fear Factory record back in year 8 of Secondary School, and the rest as they say is history. Now I can generally be found at local gigs enjoying myself way too much for an opening band.
Favourite BandGhost B.C, Thy Art Is Murder, Dethklok, Year Of No Light, Iron Maiden, Trivium, Heights, Whitechapel, The Defiled, Sabaton... I could go on all day here so I’ll spare you that!
