Metal related background:
In 2007 I became involved with the metal industry as more than just a dedicated fan when I started writing reviews and interviews with bands from Greece, Cyprus and all over the world. Soon, I had my own radio program for 3 years in Aphrodite’s Island. I was also involved in organizing local metal festivals.
Lastly, I am involved in various capacities in Greece with a number of metal projects with various industry people, writers, producers and promoters, as well as trying to stay involved by supporting metal in my community and around the globe.

CD you hate to admit you have in your collection: None. I have no guilty pleasures. There is only metal and hard rock.
