The first of many, hopefully......

Well, well, well, looks like I've been bitten by the blog bug as well.

Firstly I have to acknowledge the likes of Andrew at and Jonathan at an attitude exhumed for inspiring me to do this shit. Their blogs are always interesting and full of great music, I hope that this blog will be able to emulate what they have been doing thus far.

In regards to my blog, it will be using this to spread the knowledge of music that is palatable to my own personal (self proclaimed) eclectic musical persuasions. Initially my posts will centre around metalcore and hardcore from places other than the US. The point being to capture the worldwide hardcore craze that is currently occurring and to prove that hardcore and metalcore, despite their tarnished reputations are still valid musical entities.

Additionally I will try and future music from older periods, but being a mere pup (22), I don't have the good fortune to say that I have experienced any widespread musical revolution that was of any real genuine significance. I can't say I'm proud of experiencing the explosion of Nu-Metal in the late 90s and definitely don't hide the fact that I went to some of those shows and bought some of the records (C'mon, young impressionable 16 year old and Slipknot, lack of any real good metal in the mainstream, can I really be chastised for that shit!), thus you see my predicament, but I have learnt the error of my ways and expelled those awful records...Whether my taste has improved is something you'll have to judge yourselves.

Therefore, I will strive to include older music but I won't be able to relate to it in the same way as some of you more distinguished bloggers out there!!

Anyway, that's it for now, look out for my first blog coming soon.....
