Living in the south of Switzerland, where the Italians meet the Teutons. Nice culture clash.
Musical interests:
  • Favourite genres: Metal, obviously, emphasis on power, death and glam; otherwise I try to listen to as much as possible, and am a big fan of britpop, alt. rock, blues, country, classical music and folk.
  • Favourite bands: For Metal: Sonata Arctica, Iron Maiden, Queensrÿche, Ozzy Osbourne, Black Label Society, Manowar, Nile, In Flames, Amon Amarth, Eluveitie, Nevermore, Savatage, X-Japan. For everything else: Manic Street Preachers, Oasis, Ash, Blur, The Pogues, Nickelback, Paramore, The Killers, David Allen Coe, and a lot of other stuff.
  • All time favourite album: Almost impossible to say, but I'm gonna go with Sonata Arctica's "Ecliptica", because not only do I still listen to it now but it's the album that got me into metal at a serious level.
I'm human too:
  • Cool day job: Not really a job, I'm still in school, getting my International Baccalaureate diploma.
  • Hobbies: Playing guitar, reading, writing essays, watching movies, writing poetry, and getting pissed.
  • Bragging about education/college degrees: Still working on it.
Other stuff I can be proud of: Does staying sane count?
