I'm the beer drinking, metal screaming, photo taking, awkward interviewing guy that loves deathcore and anything heavy ever. Metal has been a huge influence on my life and will continue to be so. I get overly excited about meeting bands I listen to; probably something to do with a childhood dream.

Review: Ingested – Architect Of Extinction



Ingested, a Manchester based band who take no prisoners and slaughter your family in front of you before disemboweling you. It’s brutal. It’s death. It#s slammy. It’s hench as f*ck.
