Four years. Where did the time go? The past four years that I have been with Metal Reviews have led to some of the best experiences in my young life so far. Due to my extended stay here at MR my listening horizons have broadened and at the same time constricted. I say broadened because I find myself listening to groups I would have never thought I could come close to liking before my tenure here and constricted because my critical ear has become much more refined. Music has the ability to touch the soul and challenge the mind and this power leaves me dumbfounded and humbled. I honestly believe that if someone truly does not have a deep love for any kind of music be it metal, country, rap, whatever, then they are not fully living life. Music is as an integral part of my own life as breathing is, I couldn't see myself without it for long before I would expire. I'm grateful for my small role in the metal community, I do what I do to help promote the artists and musicians that will hopefully take our beloved genre into new territories and uncharted musical waters. If this is your first time to Metal Reviews, I hope you enjoy reading mine as well as everyone elses thoughts, views, opinions, and rants on the current crop of metal bands. If it wasn't for fans such as yourself then this site would have been dead a long time ago and I think its safe to speak for everyone at MR behalf when I say that we are eternally grateful for your support.
