I been passionate about music, and specially metal since I was little, I been in bands, listened to hundreds of records, and assisted to hundreds of live shows. I am a Historian graduated of Arizona State University (ASU) in 2011, I did radio at ASU for about 2 years, and had a metal radio show called The Age Of Metal, which was my inspiration for this blog. During that time also had the chance to interview bands like Dream Theater, Kamelot, Primal Fear, Epica, Testament, Rotting Christ, Etc. I’ve reviewed records and formed a more critical opinion about the music industry and the artists involved

Stephanie Jansen   Editor/Writer  Tampa, FL

I’m a music journalist for the death metal community. I started getting into metal at around the age of nine, and have been discovering bands and attending concerts ever since. I was always into reading interviews, and being a writer from a young age I knew I could write better than the writers that were featured in the magazines. So far, I’ve met and did press for several of my favorite bands and met some incredible people. I love interviewing bands and writing articles for the metal community. I’m mainly into death metal, and Death is my favorite band. Some of my other favorite bands are: Cannibal Corpse, Necrophagist, The Faceless and Job for a Cowboy. Other than the work I do for the music industry, I’m a student working toward a Bachelor’s in English. I wish to pursue music journalism farther, and have it be one of the career paths I follow. When I’m not writing journalism or studying, I’m either getting tattooed, modeling, or spending time with my kitty CC.

I am an avid photographer and metal fan and decided to combine these two lifelong passions by getting into concert photography. Trying to capture the raw power and energy that the different performers display is one of the things I enjoy most about it. I have traveled an enormous amount of miles going to concerts and for me a show is never too far. Some of my favorite artists are KISS, Aria, Death Angel, Pantera, Holy Grail, and Jeff Loomis.

Armed with a sharp intuition and a relentless passion for metal. Years of raw, hands on experience in the field of photography have taught me to specialize in everything from capturing the moment while being drenched in GWAR blood to blocking the head kicks of flailing crowd surfers to get that shot.
Metal is what inspires me. Music that hits a point where you can feel it. A spark inside that makes you growl and nod your head as the sound lays waste to all else.
