We set up interviews/photography/reviews/guestlists & help organise gig events in London, promoting signed & unsigned bands in London & around the UK.

Length of Time with MR: We set up the UK team early 2010

Best thing about working for MR: Meeting all the bands we've loved for years & seeing the 'behind the scenes' in the media world, receiving all new album releases free of charge, getting into gigs for free & seeing new unsigned bands achieve their ambitions.

Worst thing about working for MR: It can be stressful! We have three small but very loyal teams in the UK based in London & up North, so ensuring everyone has their guestlists & photopass can be time consuming, as well as ensuring all interviews/album reviews are received & published in time.

But we love it!

Non-MR Job: I have my own photography studio and shoot under the name of Altercarnated Photography. I work as a Freelance Photographer/Writer for Devolution Magazine, Gorgeous Freaks Magazine & Run The Independent Voice Ezine aswell as other various publications.

Favourite Metal Genre: METAL! Black Metal, Death, Doom, Extreme, Folk, Power, Gothic, Industrial, Progressive, Symphonic, Thrash, Viking...

Favourite Non-Metal Genre: Gothic/Industrial/Dark Dance/EBM

Least Favorite Metal Genre: All the nu-metal & emo stuff that seems to be appearing lately, its not good! We want REAL metal!

How/when you first got into metal: We all have an intense love & obsession with music, I believe its in your blood & soul! Some of our reviewers are in bands themselves & we have all worked in the music business for many years.
