As a heavy ass metal player/listener I’ve grown to understand the importance of awareness. Aware of the fact that not everyone understand the primal importance of metal music and its ability to make one more connected to their humanness.

I hope you all enjoy my face as much as I enjoy these 90s songs.
Today was the first time I’ve been creatively involved in writing heavy music since As Hell Retreats broke up. Really excited about being involved in this new band. These dudes can really play.
It seems to me that choices in our lives are hinged on how we perceive them. We can choose to view our circumstances and opportunities negatively, or we can choose to see the good in life, and it’s paths and opportunities.
I was the kid at the local guitar store that would ask for a pick and a cable.
The lady at the front desk would ask: “are you just going to shred for an hour.”
Then I would say: “No.”
Then I would shred for an hour, and pretend to be interested in the quality and tone of the instruments.
I sometimes wonder what the percentage is of guitarists who are able to play precisely the type of music they wish, and pay their bills.
