I decided to start this blog because whenever I talk about music & metal on my regular blog, everyone gets bored! So, I wanted a place where I could just talk about music & metal and not have it clogging up the content on my other site.
I also wanted a place where I could vent about stuff happening on MFF without having to put up with the idiocy of some of the participants there.
My favourite bands are: Nightwish, Dawn of Destiny, Sabaton, Almora, Amberian Dawn, Crimfall, Leaves' Eyes, Atargatis, and many others. I predominantly listen to symphonic power metal, folk metal, power metal, and Gothic metal - and yes, many of the bands I listen to are fronted by women.
Metal for me is a genre where I feel very represented, and that is why I love it so much. I really have found a home there, a place where my experiences, world view, emotions, and even body type are represented. Mainstream music just doesn't do this for me. It's been one hell of a journey, and I look forward to sharing it here.
