About Greg (15 Articles)
I am a recent graduate of Digital Film Technology, but my main love is music. I am a huge fan of heavy metal and classic rock, although in recent times, my taste has ventured to that of alternative, indie, electronica, folk and jazz. I first got into metal when I was about 11 or 12 years old, for which I listened to a lot of nu-metal (such a dirty word nowadays). The only genres I don’t like very much are dubstep, techno and modern pop music. I've only ever been at a few gigs, but they've been memorable ones (such as seeing Torche and Soulfly, for which I got to meet Max Cavalera after the gig).
