Hey everyone. Welcome to my new blog.

For context – I blogged, in some form, almost constantly between 1998 and 2011. I decided to take a break in 2011 to refocus my efforts and hone in on a single topic blog I would want to dedicate my time to.

I guess a decade break is long enough.

My purpose this time is to talk about a signular topic – music. I’ve been a music junkie for over 30 years now. Listening, collecting, playing and discussing music is a lot of what I have done and will do. I used to write about music in past blogs but it was never a total focus. But gone are the days of word vomiting onto a screen about anything and in are the days of curated content creation, so off I go.

As for what kinds of stuff I’ll be talking about? Well, by and large, metal is my go-to. It’s the largest part of what I listen to and what I know. It’s beent he most transformative force in my life and has provided a lot of memories and friends over the decades. I’ll be talking a lot about metal around here.

And hey, look – my favorite band of all time is releasing a new album soon. That’ll give me some content to grind on as I get this out of the starting gate.

I did decide though that I’m not going to focus exclusively on metal. I thought about it at first but then I said the hell with it, just roll with whatever I want to. “Anything else” will involve rock or country, neither of which are all that far apart from metal anyway.

I’m looking to begin with a post schedule of Monday, Wednesday and Friday as I start out. This might falter a bit at first but hey, it’s not like I have an audience to disappoint right now anyway. Some weeks may see extra posts on the two days that start with T. I don’t intend to post at all on weekends, those are for drinking beer and headbanging.

I think that about covers it for now. I’ll be back on Monday with my first Album of the Week. Until then, keep it loud.
